    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Carlson Wagonlit.

    Interview Details

    It was easy, I just had to take a typing test, take a mock phone call, do the regular interview and talk about my past experience in the industry. I passed the typing test with flying colors as well as the mock phone call and ended up getting a call back with a job offer within 2 hours of leaving.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Carlson Wagonlit in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I previously applied for a position with them but the hours weren't a good fit. Found another position I was interested in and emailed my cover letter and resume to the recruiter who contacted me regarding the previous position. She set up a face to face interview with two sets of people.

    The first 2 people were HR I believe. They just asked about my background. I slipped up on one of the questions early on and knew from there I had no chance at the job. The next 2 people were the hiring manager and another manager. They explained the position in more detail, asked about my background, then asked just a couple STAR questions.

    The entire process was relatively painless. Everyone was really nice and welcoming. I received my rejection letter rather quickly which was also nice.

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Minneapolis, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Carlson Wagonlit in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had a screening phone interview with a nice HR rep, asking very general, typical questions. Meeting with my interviewer was an absolute pleasure. The position was filled internally, I found out later, but the interviewer was very friendly, honest, and candid. The whole interview felt more like a conversation between two friends than a typical interview.

    The Carlson HQ is a beautiful campus...a bit too suburban for my tastes, but many people would probably like it. Lots of manicured gardens, fountains, marble, glass...but inside is very much Corporate America cube-land.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Carlson Wagonlit in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    An initial interview to determine suitability for CWT was conducted in person. This interview covered most of the competency areas within CWT's Value Statement. A telephone interview followed with the hiring manager and focused on the requirements of the role. Feedback on whether a face-to-face interview would happen was promised within the week but this seems to be where the process broke down. and feedback was not received for a month
