    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 weeksinterviewed 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 other source. The process took a weekinterviewed 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.

    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!!!

    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!!

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Echo Global Logistics.

    Interview Details

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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Echo Global Logistics in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a Recruiter a couple days after applying to the website and we set up a phone interview for a couple weeks later. The interview was very conversational. Went into the office and sat with a rep to get a better understanding of the position. The "final" phone interview with a senior manager in Chicago seemed like it was more of an informational call and they already knew they were extending me an offer by that point.

    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. Tone of all interviews were casual but still sort of difficult becasue they put you on the spot and you were not always sure what they were looking for in questions.

 Former Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

Pros: “Great people, really young but not quite as "fratty" as similar companies. Casual dress code (polos, button-downs and jeans, so a little nicer than then industry standard.) and beer Fridays.” Full Review
