    Inside Sales Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Echo Global Logistics (Chicago, IL) in August 2012.

    Interview

    First you have a phone interview. Then they have you meet with a variety of people to test your personality and question how you would handle situations (standard). You have to take a personality test as well. Be prepared to be there for a few hours for your in person interview because if they like you, they will have you keep meeting with management and possibly talk about options moving forward.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Echo Global Logistics.

    Interview

    Interviewing process was very easy. First there is the phone interview which is pretty basic and after that they'll invite you to one of their offices to shadow a current sales person for about a half hour. After the shadow, you'll be interviewed by someone in HR and in my interview I was asked questions more about my past and character. The second and last interview is when they ask a bit more complicated questions but nothing to dramatic.

    I had two phone interviews with two different employees within a two week span. They were very laid back phone calls asking about myself and why I was interested in the job.

    National Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Echo Global Logistics (Dallas, TX) in June 2011.

    Interview

    The interview started with one of the corporate recruiters calling and chatting with me for 15 minutes or so about the position. I came from another transportation company, so I was really receptive to what she was saying. After two phone interviews I came into the job shadow with a good idea of what I was getting myself into. The manager at the time (2011) was not very easy to read and asked some very basic questions. When I sat down for the shadow with a senior rep, I was able to loosen up a bit. The interview process feels a little like you are running the gauntlet, but once it’s all said and done, you leave knowing exactly what you are getting yourself into.

    Interview Questions

    • Coming from the same industry, I was asked, “If you left your previous company, why do you think you would like it here?”   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    At the time there wasn't any negotiation phase. In 2012 the process changed and it’s on the table for discussion now.
