    Carrier Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Echo Global Logistics in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    The people are very friendly and it is overall an easy going experience; you job shadow someone for 30 mins right when you get in which is good because it takes away from sitting in a room waiting for people to come grill you with queastions.

    After shadowing, 2-3 managers interview and it is very causal; they are more concerned with what questions you have for them rather than them asking you a million questions about your work history, schooling, etc.

    National Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Echo Global Logistics in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    First step: 10 minute HR phone screen, the classic "make sure s/he isn't a serial killer." Crisp and professional. They clearly do this every day. The 2nd step was a phone screen with the local sales manager. Again, she was thorough and professional. She asked me to make up a business and call her back the next day to pitch it at 10am. She did not break the 4th wall before, during, or after the pitch.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked to create a business plan and call back to "sell" it in a 5 minute pitch.   Answer Question

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Troy, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Troy, MI
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. 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 Questions
    • 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Echo Global Logistics.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview with a recruiter(mostly ditzy cute girl asking about your resume. nice, but ditzy). 1-2 face-to-face interviews where you come in and shadow a rep for as long as it takes the way-too-busy single manager to get a chance to ask you a few questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Don't really remember too many of them specifically except for the usual "think about a time when you were in a position to go beyond the call of duty" type prompts. "What do you see being a challenge for you in this position?"   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Easy, they offered $35, I wanted $40, we agreed on #38. That was the highest base salary in the entry level sales position in the branch.

    phone interview then two sets of manager interviews and shadows at the office then two final phone interviews with VPs at the Chicago Headquarters.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview with recruiter at another one of the branches, met with Branch Manager in Hendersonville at a temporary office, final phone interview with HR Director, second final phone interview with VP Sales.
