    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at C.H. Robinson Worldwide in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through my university career website and received a response with in a week of my application. My first experience was with HR via phone from HQ in Minnesota. I was then given a response three days later and was invited to go to the branch I would be working at. I got to sit with new sales reps as they worked a normal day then had a 1-3 interview. A lot of situational questions and references to my resume. After a while they shied away from situational questions and just got to know me. This is the most open I have ever been with an interviewer. Overall great experience.

    Transportation Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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
