    District IS Coordinator Interview

    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.

    Phone screen generally occurs about two weeks after application if at all.

    In person interview follows phone screen, if selected, by a week or two. Focus is on job experiences and attitude. Generally 3 or 4 sessions in two hours.

    Customs Broker Agent Interview

    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.

    Application Details

    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.

    First interview had some general questions about your background, skills and work experiences. It also included basic Java questions. First interview is normally via phone, and you maybe called for second or more interview which would be more technical.

    EDI Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Expeditors.

    Interview Details

    The process took a over a month, starting with an initial screening interview, a few weeks later a phone interview followed by a two hour long personal interview; the first hour being a personality interview and the second being a technical interview. Everyone was very nice to me and appeared to be very transparent about what they wanted.

    Interview Questions
    • I was nervous and I'm sure it was written on my face but they were patient and understanding. They asked me to solve a few programming questions [I hadn't seen before] at a white board with 3 people watching me, asking me to explain my thought process. The questions were not hard and I eventually solved them correctly but I'm not particularly good at explaining my methods to questions I haven't seen before in front of 3 strangers; I'm a bit more introverted and function better that way and ultimately I was not offered the job.   Answer Question

    Software Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Expeditors in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Four rounds of interviews, two phone and three in-person. Standard technical questions. The team seemed nice enough, but the environment was not as casual as other tech-jobs in the area. Their offices are large downtown and most people were in corporate attire. The team sat in cubicles with high walls. Not the sort of open, casual environment that I enjoy.

    Reasons for Declining

    Their background check seemed pretty invasive - there didn't seem to be any justification for that. Also, their offer was below my salary in a lesser role. All added up to a thanks, but no thanks.
