Account Manager Interview

Account Manager
Troy, MI

I applied through other source and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Echo Global Logistics in November 2011.

Interview Details – First interview over the phone with HR at HQ in Chicago. Second interview with branch manager in the Troy office. Third interview was with HR again in Chicago over the phone. They made me an offer and sent me an offer letter then called me two weeks later and said that they weren't going to offer me the job because they decided they weren't hiring. They then called me back a week later and said they would hire me. I was the black sheep in the process.

Interview Question – Nothing out of the ordinary. It was a pretty normal conversation. You are being interviewed by people in their mid to late 20s with hardly any managerial experience.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation whatsoever. Take it or leave it mentality.

Inside Sales Interview

Inside Sales
Dallas, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Echo Global Logistics in December 2013.

Interview Details – At the career fair Echo found me, and boy did they want me...bad. I got emails, text messages, and phone calls inquiring when they could set up an interview with me. This was nice; it made me feel wanted and smart!!!

Interview Question – Where do you want to be in 10 years?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I asked for more money twice, and I met my manager in the middle.
I make $38,000, but since I make more money than other sales reps it will take me longer to hit commission!!
