APPLICATION TIPS

At Mainfreight we believe great work should be great fun!

You wont find a code of corporate conduct here because we love life’s characters and we trust you to be yourself.  We hire people for their personality, intelligence and guts. That means most of us find we’re working alongside people we’ll happily socialise with or introduce to our families.

If you’re wondering about what we look for in our people, our best advice is to be yourself. Have a read of our FAQs and you should get an idea of who we are whether we’re right for you.

Still not sure if we’re made for each other? At Mainfreight we’ve got an open and honest culture so if you’d like to email us or have a chat off the record, get in touch. We’ll happily answer any questions.

Interview tips

Be prepared to talk about yourself. Sounds obvious, but the more we know about you the better. Tell us about what fires you up, what you want out of life and what you’ve achieved so far.

Do your homework. Find out about Mainfreight, talk to people, Google us. A long-term career here is much more likely if you feel like you’d fit into our culture and way of doing things. It’s not for everyone!

Ask questions. Find out whether Mainfreight can offer you what you’re looking for. Ask about the future direction of the business, induction, development or travel opportunities.

Think about how you handle challenges. Be prepared to tell us about any tough situations you’ve come up against and how you’ve handled them in a way that’s relevant to a role here at Mainfreight.

Practice! Get your friends or family to do a mock interview and critique your responses. You’re up against others for the role so give it yourself the best chance, be well-prepared, confident and well-groomed.

Dress for success! We value and protect our own image and we look for that in the people we hire. Dress like you already have the job and arrive on time.
