Very Easy Interview

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.

National Account Manager Interview

National Account Manager
Atlanta, GA

I applied through other source and 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 Question – 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.

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.

Difficult Interview

Client Sales Representative Interview

Client Sales Representative
Nashville, TN

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Echo Global Logistics in August 2013.

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.

Interview Question – Demonstrate your sales ability. What past experience proves you will be successful in this job? How do you deal with failure? What do you know about the industry?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – none really. you have a base/draw until you do well enough to get commission. good enough incentive for me!
