Inside Sales Account Executive Interview

Inside Sales Account Executive
Chicago, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Schneider.

Interview Details – Met a sales manager and sales representative at my school's career fair. The next day I had am interview scheduled with the two gentleman that I met the previous day. They then asked me at the end of the interview if I wanted to continue with the process to then submit my resume and information through their online careers website. I did that and an HR person contacted me within a few days after that. I was at Schneider's office in Chicago for my final interview about two weeks later. I interviewed with two account managers. They were somewhat standoffish, very serious and very professional. And after an hour and a half interview I left and a few days later the HR person called me and offered me the job.

Interview Question – The questions were just really normal behavioral questions. The most unexpected question was when you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I had other opportunities available at my disposal.

Inside Sales Account Executive Interview

Inside Sales Account Executive
Evanston, IL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Schneider.

Interview Details – My resume was passed along as an employee referral. Shortly thereafter, I received a phone call, did a phone interview, did a one-on-one interview, and later received a phone call offering me the position. I didn't find the interview to be especially difficult since I understand how brokering and logistics work. After accepting the position, the company had me pee in a cup test to make sure I know how to pass a pee test. Success!

Negotiation Details – None. It was a 35k base for one year. After a year, you're expected to make money with all the freight you move...or try to move.

Inside Sales Account Executive Interview

Inside Sales Account Executive
Dallas, TX

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Schneider in September 2011.

Interview Details – Phone interview was with a recruiter from Chicago; conversation was mostly about my leadership potential, and upward mobility with the company. Admin Assistant with the Dallas office then called me and we scheduled a day and time for a group interview. Admin Assistant then sent me an email to confirm. Note to future candidates: The building has a very confusing layout, and parking in the garage was confusing as well, give yourself an extra 30 min. to find a parking space and find the Schneider Office in the building.

Interview Question – Have you ever had to deliver bad news to a customer? How did you do it?   View Answer

Reason for Declining – The two team leaders showed up to interview me wearing T-shirts, jeans, and tennis shoes, while I came in a suit, this seems very unprofessional on their part. After about 40 min. of Q & A it became apparent that they were more interested in running a call center (generating business thru cold calling) and the overall depth of their logistics knowledge was very very limited at best.
