Logistics Account Executive Interview

Logistics Account Executive

Interviewed at Total Quality Logistics

Interview Details – Process started with a phone interview that lasted about 30 minutes. I was contacted by a recruiter who set up the phone interview for the next day. This was really just a conversation about resume experiences, and then a few questions about why I would be a good fit for the company. Second interview was in-person and was a more for you to learn about the company. You listen to a bunch of recorded sales calls and take a test that covers the company and retention. 2nd interview took about 1.5 hours. Final interview was with hiring manager of the branch you're applying for. Lasted about 2 hours and was mostly shadowing two people from the company.

Interview Question – They ask repeatedly why you would be good for the company/why you would be successful.   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Better offer from another company that's more in my field

Logistics Account Executive Interview

Logistics Account Executive

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Total Quality Logistics in December 2013.

Interview Details – I was originally contacted by phone and had an initial phone conversation that just talked about my resume, then a more formal phone interview, again just talking about my resume and then finally a video interview over the internet, where I talked to a team leader rather than just a recruiter. Again went over my resume, what I thought 3PL was and basically just talked about the job. A lot of them selling me on it, rather than the other way around.

Interview Question – Was not really any difficult questions.   View Answer
