EDI Systems Analyst Interview

EDI Systems Analyst
Seattle, WA

I applied online - interviewed at Expeditors in November 2013.

Interview Details – Was interviewed by two separate groups. The first group was upper management and they were very nice and it was mostly a get to know you type interview. The second group was lower level management and they asked more technical questions and reviewed a EDI test that you took in between. They were pretty rude.

Interview Question – Had to take a twenty minute test in the middle quizzing on basic SQL skills   Answer Question

Logistics Engineer Interview

Logistics Engineer
Seattle, WA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Expeditors.

Interview Details – I was referred by an acquaintance and the interview process was short. 1 in person with Manager and Executive Director. I was offered a package without being asked any salary questions. It was that quick.

Interview Question – Nothing difficult during the interview process. First Advantage, co. that does background investigations required nearly two months of time and constant letters in the mail citing failure, but they would never call and ask a question. It required me to do extensive leg work that is a paid task for the third party to perform.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Offer was more than expected. Easy.
