Helpful (2)Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Echo Global Logistics (Scottsdale, AZ).
phone interview then two sets of manager interviews and shadows at the office then two final phone interviews with VPs at the Chicago Headquarters. The process was rather lengthy but you can tell they want to make sure you are vetted and also that you know what is expected and want to be a part of the company.

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Echo Global Logistics (Scottsdale, AZ) in March 2013.
First, I had a very brief phone conversation with a Recruiter who asked basic questions about my job search, background, future goals, strengths/weakness, failures and aptitude for a sales job. After that, I was asked into the branch office, (which is in Oldtown right by the mall) for a second interview with the same Recruiter who asked more difficult questions this time around. She put me on the spot a lot but at the same time I still felt extremely comfortable and overall the interview was very conversational. It seemed as though she was genuinely interested in the things I had to say (which was refreshing for a change compared to other companies) as well as making sure this job was the right fit for me. She was extremely knowledgeable about the company and the industry and I also enjoyed hearing about her background. Then I shadowed someone in the actual role I would be doing and met with a Senior Manager. That part was very quick, direct and to the point but he was also very enthusiastic about the industry, the company and his job/team and was very upfront and realistic about what to expect.
- Tell me about a time you were unmotivated to get something done and how did you get yourself back on track. Answer Question
- Give me an example of a time you had to influence someones point of view or decision when they may have had differing viewpoints or been reluctant to hear. Answer Question
- How assertive would you consider yourself? Tell me about a time you were able to positively assert yourself in a difficult situation and led by example. Answer Question
- Tell me about a time you where not satisfied (or a collegue/superviosr/professor) with your personal performance. Answer Question
Quick chat with the CHR in Chicago, a fairly lengthly and time consuming backgroud check with criminal, education, past employers, compensation history. Then I was told over the phone I was going to be given an offer and the Recruiter tried to feel me out as to an acceptable range. She gave me examples of what she'd seen in the past from similar candidates and emphasized Echo's strenths over other companys and helped me weigh by options.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Echo Global Logistics (Scottsdale, AZ) in February 2013.
Overall a positive experience and seems like a great company to work for if you are hardworking, optimistic and energetic. I was emailed by a Recruiter for a phone interview and she set up an office visit at the end of the call. Second interview consisted of two panel type interviews. One was a little impersonal and the other was more casual, gave me a lot of high level information on the company and the position but also really drilled down on specific things on my resume and put me on the spot with some mental math problem solving.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Echo Global Logistics (Scottsdale, AZ) in January 2013.
met recruiter and sales person at career fair, was contacted a couple weeks later for a phone interview, then set up for me to go to the office where I met with same recruiter, shadowed a rep who was really cool and funny and then met two managers, "final interview" on the phone with the head of HR in the Chicago headquarters then got a background check and the offer a couple weeks later
- Explain a time you failed at a task and what you learned from it. Answer Question
they asked me questions about my other offers with diff companies-appears most kids right out of school get $35k but some who have more experience can get up to $40k? have different training classes and can choose. commission plan seems legit-uncapped-and can make bank in few years. they said expect the first year to be a brutal ramp up phase and it kind of takes awhile but get out what you put in sort of thing so worth it- im confident in my abilities so seems like a great gig
