    Interview

    Applied online and received an email for a phone interview within a few days. The phone interview lasted about 30 minutes and was very laid back. After the phone interview was an interview at the branch location. The interview was very laid back and the interviewer just had me walk through my resume and elaborate on everything on it. The interview flowed well and was pleasant.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at C.H. Robinson Worldwide in December 2014.

    Interview

    First notice that virtually all other reviewers obtained the interview through a college. I obtained my interview through an advertisement. The phone interview was fantastic and the interviewer bumped me to the top of his list for a personal interview as he stated I was one of the most qualified people he has ever interviewed. Note that I have taken off the year I graduated from my University. When I arrived, his jaw almost fell off his face because I was not in my 20's. Interview ended quickly and the next day I received an email stating that I did not meet their qualifications, totally a 180 from what I was told during the phone interview.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at C.H. Robinson Worldwide (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I first had a campus interview and then a final interview at the office. I sat on the sales floor which was nice to see what I would be doing in the job all day. Then I had an interview with a recruiter, and then a mock sales pitch with managers. Lots of behavioral based questions - pretty typical. Everyone I met was really nice and welcoming though. Recruiter and managers were very laid back and easy to talk to.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at C.H. Robinson Worldwide.

    Interview

    I was a participant in the Sophomore Exploration Program in Chicago, IL. I interviewed in order to receive a spot in this program, and the process included many behavioral questions. Once I finished my three day visit at the CH Robinson office of Chicago, I was asked to complete a sales scenario with two managers. After leaving the program, I followed up and was told decision would be made on offering me a full time summer intern position for the next coming summer within two weeks. Unfortunately this waiting continued for over a month, from early July until August, before I received word that I had been extended an offer as an intern.

    Basic interview questions. They want to go over your complete work history and see your work ethic. Phone interview lasted around thirty minutes and was very personable. The phone interview is more of you talking and them listening.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at C.H. Robinson Worldwide (Woodridge, IL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    1. Applied thru C.H. Robinson career site.
    2. Contacted a recruiter on LinkedIn to get a foot in the door.
    3. Recruiter from headquarters emailed about times to have a phone interview
    4. Had a Phone Interview which was more of a discussion about the jobs I would be searching for in the future, instead of this position. The want to start an entry level person in sales at $38,000 with no commission. That is crazy! Glad I have other offers on the table and going elsewhere for a job that pays more with great potential.
