Transportation Sales Representative Interview

Transportation Sales Representative

I applied through college or university and 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 Question – Very simple interview process - most "difficult" questions are scenario style involving a task you would complete on the job.   Answer Question

Denver, CO

I applied online and 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.

Interview Question – What are your three most important things you look for in a new job/position?   Answer Question

Interviewed at C.H. Robinson Worldwide

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 Question – 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

Interview Question – What experience have you had negotiating terms of agreement with a client   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Got an offer at another company that seemed more suitable for my personality. Less stressful environment and more professional atmosphere.
