    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Savannah, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Savannah, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at C.H. Robinson Worldwide.

    Interview Details

    I was called by a C.H.R. recruiter, went through a phone interview on the spot, and then was submitted for an online assessment to make sure I was the Type A personality they screen for. I came in for an interview in 2003 and it has changed since then I'm sure. I was interviewed by the branch manager and then sat with a few key individuals in the office to get a gameplan of if I could "handle" this type of position.

    Negotiation Details
    I was entry-level so I was happy to start out at $30k + bonus. You will see money at Robinson around year #3. When I left I was well over $80k, but money isn't everything folks. It is a cut-throat atmosphere, so be ready to perform or sink! I was there about 9 yrs and made my way successfully. It was good to leave on my own terms when I was ready. Don't be afraid to work hard and do things honestly and with dignity. Don't feed into the negativity or the toxicity. If you do, you will either succeed all the way or you will set a new standard. Change happens from within.

    Transportation Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at C.H. Robinson Worldwide.

    Interview Details

    A few days after applying, I had a 30-minute phone interview with a recruiter from the MN corporate office and took a 20-minute personality assessment and questionnaire.

    I was invited for an in-person interview in which I spoke with two team leads. They asked difficult yet challenging questions to assess my skills and work ethic.

    I was then invited for a final interview with the branch GM that lasted about an hour. He even gave me the opportunity to sit with a few employees and shadow them for 20 minutes so I can get an idea of what kind of work they do.

    From start to finish, the whole process took about one month.

    Got an email from one of the recruiters to set up a phone interview. Had one phone interview with someone in HR asking about personal information, past work experience etc. I then talked to another person in HR and that was the furthest that I went in the interview process.
