    Transportation Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at C.H. Robinson Worldwide.

    Interview Details

    First step was a basic phone interview that was roughly 30 minutes. Essentially the interview was explaining your resume as well as some situational questions. After the phone interview I was invited back for a second interview where I met with a manager and a supervisor for a 2.5 hour interview at the location. Again, we went over my resume as well as some behavioral questions (more than the phone interview) but, went into much more detail regarding the position itself. The final step was a job shadow in which it gave you a hands on idea of the position you are interviewing for. Overall the process took approximately 4 weeks.
