Financial Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Echo Global Logistics in February 2012.
Interview Details – I was referred by an internal employee to the position. I was an external candidate with a background of financial service internships. The role was very interesting and there were a lot of candidates. Like all companies should, they decided to hire an internal candidate who was more familiar with their business model and could hit the ground running. Overall, it was a great experience and I wish I could have joined the company.
Interview Question – The questions were pretty straight forward. They focused on more fit questions to see if I would meld well within the group. Answer Question
Sales Account Executive Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Echo Global Logistics in July 2011.
Interview Details – My interview process sort of took a long time due their offices in Chicago and me living in Ohio. First was a phone interview. Then it was a one on one interview at their offices. Finally, there was a final interview with the director of sales. That was the hardest part of the interview process. There were some curve ball type questions to throw me off.
The place had a very professional atmosphere and was full of people making cold calls.
Interview Question – What are the three best inventions of all time? Answer Question
Internship Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Echo Global Logistics in March 2011.
Interview Details – Interviewed with three people and was only asked about resume and why interested in the program. Seemed like a great opportunity and got a better feel for company and work environment.
Interview Question – Explain (activity) on resume. Answer Question
Computer Support Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
The process took a day - interviewed at Echo Global Logistics in August 2010.
Interview Details – Met with the CTO, H.R. rep, and 2 technical managers. They present you with every relevant question you should expect, focusing on their current problems/challenges and how you would fix them. They don't delve too far into a question, so speak up if you think they're assuming things. Very modern office, young staff.
Interview Question – What would you do your first day here? What challenges would you tackle first? Answer Question
Freight Broker - Inside Sales Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Echo Global Logistics in October 2009.
Interview Details – I was contacted about their inside sales position. I had not applied for the job, but they contacted me because they saw my resume on one of the job boards. Fair enough, but during the initial phone interview it seemed like the person on the other end of the phone was much less concerned with what I said and more intent on qualifying me as a candidate. I asked some questions and received only ambiguous answers. I can understand if it was an HR rep and they didn't know specifics of the position, but it seemed like I was wasting her time with my questions.
Well I ended up getting another interview and put the odd phone call behind me. At the next interview, the lady interviewing me was quite nice and respectful. I was taken on a quick tour of the facilities on the way to the interviewing room. The questions asked weren't all that difficult, and seemed more for me to understand the job than for them to understand me. Next a manager came in and interviewed me along with the HR lady. He asked more of the same questions, with only a few pertinent to the position and the industry I was there for. Everything lasted probably 2 hours and I never really had to think hard about an answer.
I received a phone call a little over a week later and was told I was out of the running. They said they were looking for someone with more Account Management experience. I was never asked about handling accounts during the interview, the closest thing were some sales approach questions. I don't know if the interview was an intricate psychological test, but I felt a bit short changed given the reason they gave me.
Interview Question – Tell me about a difficult client and how you handled it. View Answer
Trucking Inside Sales Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Echo Global Logistics in March 2010.
Interview Details – What they did was call me at first, we had a little phone interview of what my background was like and what sales experience that I had. After that I just ran the interview as a whole. She loved it. Then I got offered a interview to come in. Met with the same lady, got called in again and met with two other head of sales guys.
Inside Sales Representative Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Echo Global Logistics in April 2010.
Interview Details – I was referred to Echo by a current employee in Chicago and was contacted by a HR rep 2 days after submitting an application. I went through 3 phone interviews, the first two with the same HR rep and the final one with the hiring director; all were easy and straight forward. After that, I was invited to the Atlanta office where I did two 1:1 interviews, one with the hiring director I had spoken with earlier and the other with the office manager. The hiring director pretty much went through a slide show and I didnt really learn anything new since the slides repeated what I had learned on the phone. The office manager asked some basic questions and told me they would get back to me on Monday (it was Friday). After waiting a week and hearing nothing, it took 3 emails and 2 calls just to get a rejection email. Everything had gone well but it really put me off that I had to jump through so many hoops just to get an email from such an established company.
Logistics Sales Trainee Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at Echo Global Logistics in August 2012.
Interview Details – The process included a phone interview and then two one-on-one interviews. One was with someone from HR the other was with the branch manager. I then shaddowed someone in the position that I had applied for. Overall it was a pretty quick and easy process but the job looked boring.
Interview Question – Mostly your basics, no curveballs really Answer Question
Inside Sales Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Echo Global Logistics in May 2011.
Interview Details – Basic phone interview with the standard questions. Went in for a face to face with the branch manager and she was very easy to talk to but at the same time very honest of what she expected out of employees. Also did a 30 min job shadow with an employee and he was very helpful and honest on the pro and cons of the job. Really seems like a excellent place to work.
Inside Sales Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Echo Global Logistics in February 2011.
Interview Details – Found my resume online and contacted me about being interested in a possible position. Had a short 10 minute phone interview asking me questions about my experience in my resume and a little bit more of what the company did. At the conclusion of the phone interview they asked to set up a face to face interview. Went in and it was fairly normal with the review of my resume and why i wanted to be in sales. Then concluded with me asking any questions i had.
