Application Details

I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at C.H. Robinson Worldwide in May 2013.

Interview Details

Phone interview, then personality test. If you pass that then you get a face to face interview. Pretty laid back but must know the values and history of the company.

Negotiation Details

    You will have a phone interview, possibly two. Then you will interview with the hiring branch where they learn a little more about you and then for the second interview you will have a shadow type day where you get to learn what a typical day is like in the field.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at C.H. Robinson Worldwide.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and within a couple of days received an email regarding my application. They said I was qualified and a phone interview would be next. She asked all of the expected questions (skills & weaknesses, most recent job and my duties, what I have to offer, etc.). I was told that I would be hearing back from the branch in my town, but never did. I contacted her directly about it and she apologized for the delay. In the end, I didn't make the cut. But it was another interview I can count for experience!

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at C.H. Robinson Worldwide.

    Interview Details

    3 round interviews- 1 phone; two in person

    Interview Questions
    • Most questions are behavior based focused. The company requires a lot of multitasking and high intensive listening skills as you will have to hold two phone conversations at multiple times as well as work on a double computer screen. They will have you do a pitch for a basic carrier load sale to a carrier rep to prove you know about the position.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at C.H. Robinson Worldwide.

    Interview Details

    I was called by a C.H.R. recruiter, went through a phone interview on the spot, and then was submitted for an online assessment to make sure I was the Type A personality they screen for. I came in for an interview in 2003 and it has changed since then I'm sure. I was interviewed by the branch manager and then sat with a few key individuals in the office to get a gameplan of if I could "handle" this type of position.

    Negotiation Details
    I was entry-level so I was happy to start out at $30k + bonus. You will see money at Robinson around year #3. When I left I was well over $80k, but money isn't everything folks. It is a cut-throat atmosphere, so be ready to perform or sink! I was there about 9 yrs and made my way successfully. It was good to leave on my own terms when I was ready. Don't be afraid to work hard and do things honestly and with dignity. Don't feed into the negativity or the toxicity. If you do, you will either succeed all the way or you will set a new standard. Change happens from within.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at C.H. Robinson Worldwide.

    Interview Details

    Extremely long interview process. Expect to start with a phone interview, at least one possibly two, followed by an in person interview if you are not weeded out during the phone interview. The format for in person interview usually includes at least two people, if not a panel, interviewing you and it can last as long as 3-4 hours.

    Interview Questions
    • I recall a number of behavior based questions that can throw you for a loop if you're not prepared for them (i.e. how you handle stress, multi-tasking, overcoming an obstacle, etc.)   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No, all employees hired straight out of college/at the lowest salary level start at the minimum.
