National Account Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Chicago, IL

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Coyote Logistics.

Interview Details – The interview process was somewhat what I expected after I've read comments on here about it. The HR managers are really friendly but they don't seem to care too much about your qualifications and experience. I've been out of school for a few years now and I have sales management experience from a previous job and most of the interview questions asked pertained to my undergrad experience. I felt like the HR manager didn't read over my resume prior to the interview and was more so concerned about my hobbies and extracurricular activities.

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Coyote Logistics in October 2013.

Interview Details – The interview process is very laid back and casual. They ask all the standard interview questions and are mostly concerned with whether or not you will fit in with the company - not necessarily your qualifications. Be confident and conversational.

National Account Manager Interview

National Account Manager

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Coyote Logistics in December 2013.

Interview Details – I interviewed first on campus at the University of Iowa back in October. The interview was very laid-back. It was more of a conversation and getting to know one another. I instantly clicked with my recruiter and got a call about 2 weeks later to interview in the Chicago office.

The interview in Chicago was definitely much more difficult but not anything I wasn't prepared for. We went over my resume pretty extensively and I was asked quite a bit about my sales experience and why I would be a good fit for the logistics industry and Coyote. This is where you really need to sell yourself to them. After this I got a tour of the company and shadowed two people. I got to see the customer and carrier sides of the business which gives you a good idea if this is the company for you. I wrapped up the day by interviewing for a second time with the recruiter from campus who I had clicked so well with.

I got a call about two days after my Chicago interview asking if I would like to join their team!

Interview Question – What did you learn from your previous sales experiences?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate. I felt that the offer was fair compared to what other logistics companies offer starting out.

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Coyote Logistics in November 2013.

Interview Details – I saw Coyote at my career fair and approached them. The recruiters were very laid back and understood the nervousness students had. About a week and a half after the career fair, I got a generic notification via my school's career website notifying me of an on-campus interview. This was also extremely laid back. Don't go into the interview thinking it's going to be a formal one, because it isn't. Be yourself, be honest, and try to connect with the recruiter in any way imaginable. They asked questions about what I like to do in my free time, what I know about the company, etc.

About two weeks later, I got the green light for a Chicago interview. It lasts about 3 hours or so, consists of two, one-on-one interviews, about 45 mins apiece depending on who interviews you. You go over your resume and how these experiences would relate to Coyote. Lastly, you get a tour of the workplace.

Interview Question – What three words would your friends describe you as?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Didn't bother with negotiating.

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Coyote Logistics in October 2013.

Interview Details – I interviewed with Coyote after hearing about them at my school's career fair. The women that was interviewing me was extremely friendly and I didn't have any problem conversing with her. The recruiters like to see that you are very group oriented and can communicate well with others. The interview was very laid back, and was over before I knew it. A week later, I received a call for a second interview.
