I applied through college or university – interviewed at Schneider (Dallas, TX) in June 2014.
i interviewed in the Dallas office near downtown and the office was very dull and was surrounded by other offices on the same floor. The questions were typical of those you would expect in the sales job interview.
- The most unexpected question for me was "What do you like to do for fun?" Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Schneider (Chicago, IL).
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.
- 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

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Schneider (Evanston, IL).
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!
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.

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Schneider (Chicago, IL) in April 2012.
I applied to the job online and heard back from a human resources generalist about a week later. They arranged for a 30 minute phone interview, where they asked a number of questions about my background and interest in the position. Be prepared to explain your interest in the job, because it seemed crucial. Also, have several questions prepared before the interview begins, and spend some time researching the company.

I applied online. The process took a day – interviewed at Schneider (Dallas, TX) in September 2011.
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.
- Have you ever had to deliver bad news to a customer? How did you do it? 1 Answer

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.

The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Schneider (Dallas, TX) in December 2010.
Interview was in depth and involved good interview questions and interviewers. The lady from H.R. was fantastic and the process is not bad at all.
