    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at C.H. Robinson Worldwide.

    Interview Details

    Extremely long interview process. Expect to start with a phone interview, at least one possibly two, followed by an in person interview if you are not weeded out during the phone interview. The format for in person interview usually includes at least two people, if not a panel, interviewing you and it can last as long as 3-4 hours.

    Interview Questions
    • I recall a number of behavior based questions that can throw you for a loop if you're not prepared for them (i.e. how you handle stress, multi-tasking, overcoming an obstacle, etc.)   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No, all employees hired straight out of college/at the lowest salary level start at the minimum.

    Interview Details

    A recruiter contacted me first for the initial interview. This was a simple, go-over-the-job type of interview to see if I was interested. The 2nd interview was also with the recruiter and covered topics such as my resume, work experience, school work, what motivates me, etc etc.

    Interview Questions
    • Rather than ask a couple questions, the recruiter asked me to just go over my entire resume starting with the last job and work my way up to my most recent position.   Answer Question

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at C.H. Robinson Worldwide.

    Interview Details

    Spoke with a recruiter multiple times on the phone, short convo followed by assessment followed by long convo.

    I was then passed to have an in person interview which lasted 2 hours and was with 2 people at once. Standard interview questions. I was put on the floor for about 10 minutes with a few people to learn about what they were doing on a daily basis.

    IT Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Eden Prairie, MN
    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at C.H. Robinson Worldwide in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    Telephonic screening. In-person interview with 2 sets of 2 peers for one hour each, then two one-hour sessions with hiring manager and hiring manager's boss. Questions were all about work process; nothing technical. This turned out to be an issue because there were technical expectations that were not clarified nor provided for once on site.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Hiring Manager called with an offer. It was 5% less than previously discussed, but he mentioned a bonus plan that was not in writing (but was legitimate).

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at C.H. Robinson Worldwide in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a corporate recruiter from Minnesota the same day that I applied for the job. I set up an initial phone screening where I spent about 30 minutes answering some pretty straight forward questions regarding my background and the position. I then set up a follow-up phone interview. Following that I was contacted and told that I was to come in for a branch interview. That interview lasted about an hour.
