    Interview Details

    I left my résumé at a college career fair. I got a call from them the next day asking to come in for an interview. Usually, the job-seeker takes the initiative to initiate contact. It makes me question their turnover rate.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    They offered me an entry level position far below my skill set and experience. They knew I was not currently employed and made a comment regarding how they hire according to attitude. I felt they were trying to say that although I had 17 years experience I needed to be thankful for any job offer and work my up within their company.

    Very informal interview, felt more as a regular conversation than an interview, which is a huge plus for those of us who can get nervous. Lasted for an hour.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Expeditors.

    Interview Details

    Hiring was ridiculous. Had 2 different managers interview me, both telling me different and contradicting things. One just loved to listen to himself talk and I just sat there for over an hour. I imagine this was local to that branch.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in SeaTac, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Expeditors in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and heard back from a manager the following morning to set up an interview for early the next week.

    Went to their satellite office located in SeaTac and interviewed with two managers. They mainly asked questions based straight off my resume, asking me to elaborate on my previous work experience and then answer a few questions about my roles. This part took around 25 minutes and after I asked the managers questions as well. Overall the interview took around 45 minutes.

    This was the first step out of a few, and I would be contacted for another interview if I was chosen to go to the next round.

    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.
