Customs Broker Agent Interview

Customs Broker Agent
SeaTac, WA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed 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.

Interview Question – I see that you worked with X Company, can you elaborate on your position and what you did?   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Expeditors.

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.

Account Manager Interview

Account Manager

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Expeditors.

Interview Details – Went through two interviews and a personality test.

Interview Question – Their interview process was easy   View Answer

Reason 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.

District IS Coordinator Interview

District IS Coordinator

I applied in-person and 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.

Interview Question – Hiring manager was technology illiterate so nothing.   Answer Question
