National Account Manager Interview

National Account Manager
Atlanta, GA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Echo Global Logistics in September 2011.

Interview Details – First step: 10 minute HR phone screen, the classic "make sure s/he isn't a serial killer." Crisp and professional. They clearly do this every day. The 2nd step was a phone screen with the local sales manager. Again, she was thorough and professional. She asked me to make up a business and call her back the next day to pitch it at 10am. She did not break the 4th wall before, during, or after the pitch.

Interview Question – I was asked to create a business plan and call back to "sell" it in a 5 minute pitch.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Standard comp package. Take it or leave it.

Easy Interview

National Account Manager Interview

National Account Manager
Atlanta, GA

I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Echo Global Logistics.

Interview Details – Phone interview with a recruiter(mostly ditzy cute girl asking about your resume. nice, but ditzy). 1-2 face-to-face interviews where you come in and shadow a rep for as long as it takes the way-too-busy single manager to get a chance to ask you a few questions.

Interview Question – Don't really remember too many of them specifically except for the usual "think about a time when you were in a position to go beyond the call of duty" type prompts. "What do you see being a challenge for you in this position?"   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Easy, they offered $35, I wanted $40, we agreed on #38. That was the highest base salary in the entry level sales position in the branch.

National Account Manager Interview

National Account Manager

Interviewed at Echo Global Logistics

Interview Details – I had a phone interview that was terrible. The lady who gave me the interview was just so unwelcoming and unexcited. You could literally tell she was reading every question off a sheet of paper and would keep saying, "good, ok. great" after every answer. She doesn't make me want to work for them. Bad first impression.

Interview Question – Why sales?   Answer Question

National Account Manager Interview

National Account Manager
Dallas, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Echo Global Logistics in June 2011.

Interview Details – 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 Question – Coming from the same industry, I was asked, “If you left your previous company, why do you think you would like it here?”   View Answer

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