    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at C.H. Robinson Worldwide.

    Interview Details

    The whole process took about two weeks. I started with an on-campus interview following a career fair through my university. That passed me on to a branch interview with the sales manager and VP.

    The screening interview is incredibly standard. 30min fact finding and going over my resume.

    The branch interview is separated into three parts.
    The initial panel of back and forth scenario type questions, more resume questions, and behavioral.
    After that it's a tour around the floor and some one-on-one time with one or two different sales reps on the floor getting to know the ins and outs of their jobs.
    After that it's back to the panel for follow up questions which are more or less "what did you learn" and "do you still want to work here" type questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Very simple interview process - most "difficult" questions are scenario style involving a task you would complete on the job.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Southfield, MI
    Application Details

    I applied online. 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 Questions
    • 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
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    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 Questions
    • 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
