Global Forwarding Agent Interview

Anonymous Employee
Southfield, MI

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at C.H. Robinson Worldwide.

Interview Details – Applied online via the company website, got a call back a few days later. Had a phone interview with a recruiter. She asked basic situational questions, let me know a little about the position and company, and allowed me to ask questions.

I had two face to face meetings that consisted of 6...yes 6 interviews. First meeting was two interviews, second was 4 back to back interviews. The interviews were pretty simple more of a get to know me session. There were a couple of behavioral questions here and there, but it wasn't too bad. At by branch they are really looking for someone who can thrive with little direction, is all about customer service, and has an interest in working in the field. I majored in Supply Chain Management, so I think this will be good experience.

Interview Question – None of the questions were too difficult. "Tell me about a time when you dealt with a difficult customer" "Give me an example of a time when you had to negotiate".   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Pay is hourly.

World Class Summer Sales Internship Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Interviewed at C.H. Robinson Worldwide

Interview Details – Initial Interview was a normal behavior-based interview and somewhat conversational. The second-round hiring process was very well done. They put you in a hotel and provide you with dinner the night before. The next day they provide a shuttle to get to the office and you go through a case study interview as well as a second behavior/situational based interview. You also receive a tour of the office and are able to sit with current employees.

Interview Question – Throughout the case, no matter what I proposed, the interviewers adjusted their answers so my proposals would not be accepted even though it was partially numbers based. Basically you cannot stick to what you initially suggest and you must create unrealistic changes to your proposal because they are pitting you against an imaginary competitor that they make up the information for.   Answer Question
