    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Echo Global Logistics (Long Beach, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Easy. Talked about myself and my logistics experience. 2 phone interviews, first with recruiter which are mostly behavioral questions. Then phone interview with Branch Operations Manager and new Operations Manager. Couple questions and was Operations Manager immediately invited into in person interview. Young managements and although it will be nice to work with, other than them being with the company for a couple years, they don't have that much more experience than you do.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Easy negotiation. Very small increase and couldn't meet me with $1,000 short of my minimum salary requirement. I accepted because was convinced Bonus would take me there.

    Typical interview process. After you apply online there will be a phone interview. After the phone interview there will be an in person interview. The last step is another in-person interview and shadowing the carrier or customer sales department. Background check, no drug test.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Echo Global Logistics.

    Interview

    I was referred to Echo by a friend of an employee. I applied online and was immediately asked to set up a phone interview. After passing the initial phone screening, I was informed that the VP of Sales was in town from Chicago and they wanted me to schedule a time to come in. After meeting with him and going over my experience, I received a call from him on his personal phone, asked me why I would want this position if my background was more "Analytical." I responded questioning his career path, since he was a German major (Ballsy at the time)? After allowing him to answer the question, I said that I was interested in a career change and if he gave me a shot, I would be able to bring my analytical skills to a table, providing a cross-functional approach to a career in Logistic and Logistic Sales. At the time, it was the midst of the Great Recession and jobs were scarce so I was open for anything.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Echo Global Logistics (Long Beach, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    They have for interviews. They ask you the same thing in each one so they should have knocked it out at once. Once the girl i was supposed to interview with didn't show up so i had to go back a third time which wasn't fair to me. The people are nice though. I interviewed for enterprise and they hired me for regular so I didn't meet the people I would be working with.

    Good pay. HR dept is nice.

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Echo Global Logistics.

    Interview

    Very relaxed - they want to make sure you are able to hold a normal conversation. It is not an easy job so they actually try to scare you away. They don't want anyone coming in who doesn't know what they'll be up against.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Echo Global Logistics.

    Interview

    First I met with a recruiter on campus and they followed up with a phone interview. The HR recruiter is educated and well-mannered but when I got to their Dallas office I got to see a different side of the company. The place was messy (i.e. trash cans overflowing, interviewing table had old food on it, kind of depressing sight in general), the sales managers who interviewed me were wearing wrinkled t-shirts, jeans, and had a general "disheveled" appearance about them. It seemed as though they were doing me the favor of interviewing me as it sounded like they were reading off of a script and payed no interest to my responses.

    I'm glad I went to this interview because it will serve as good experience for a company I do NOT want to work for. I know I'm fresh out of college but I have more worth than working at Echo Global.

    Client Sales Representative Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Echo Global Logistics (Dallas, TX) in December 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring process was extremely easy. I submitted my resume at my university career fair, and I had a phone interview the following Monday. During the phone interview the recruiter outlined all the details of the job, and she was also able to answer all the questions that I had. My office interview was the best I have had so far. I was able to meet all of the branch management and also a top tenured Sales Rep. They also gave me the opportunity to do a job shadow, which lasted about an hour.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were pretty straightforward, and very fair. All of the questions asked were tailored to someone who has just graduated college.So, I felt very comfortable and was able to provide good and honest answers.   Answer Question
