    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at C.H. Robinson Worldwide in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Conducted a phone interview, all the questions were very straightforward nothing out of the ordinary. Interviewer was very polite and called right on time, no waiting and no fluff questions. Told me that she was going to recommend I have an in-person interview right after the interview. Contacted me next day with the information to set up the follow up interview.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at C.H. Robinson Worldwide.

    Interview Details

    First step was a basic phone interview that was roughly 30 minutes. Essentially the interview was explaining your resume as well as some situational questions. After the phone interview I was invited back for a second interview where I met with a manager and a supervisor for a 2.5 hour interview at the location. Again, we went over my resume as well as some behavioral questions (more than the phone interview) but, went into much more detail regarding the position itself. The final step was a job shadow in which it gave you a hands on idea of the position you are interviewing for. Overall the process took approximately 4 weeks.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at C.H. Robinson Worldwide.

    Interview Details

    The whole process took about two weeks. I started with an on-campus interview following a career fair through my university. That passed me on to a branch interview with the sales manager and VP.

    The screening interview is incredibly standard. 30min fact finding and going over my resume.

    The branch interview is separated into three parts.
    The initial panel of back and forth scenario type questions, more resume questions, and behavioral.
    After that it's a tour around the floor and some one-on-one time with one or two different sales reps on the floor getting to know the ins and outs of their jobs.
    After that it's back to the panel for follow up questions which are more or less "what did you learn" and "do you still want to work here" type questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Very simple interview process - most "difficult" questions are scenario style involving a task you would complete on the job.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at C.H. Robinson Worldwide.

    Interview Details

    A few days after applying, I had a 30-minute phone interview with a recruiter from the MN corporate office and took a 20-minute personality assessment and questionnaire.

    I was invited for an in-person interview in which I spoke with two team leads. They asked difficult yet challenging questions to assess my skills and work ethic.

    I was then invited for a final interview with the branch GM that lasted about an hour. He even gave me the opportunity to sit with a few employees and shadow them for 20 minutes so I can get an idea of what kind of work they do.

    From start to finish, the whole process took about one month.

    Got an email from one of the recruiters to set up a phone interview. Had one phone interview with someone in HR asking about personal information, past work experience etc. I then talked to another person in HR and that was the furthest that I went in the interview process.
