Account Agent Interview

Account Agent

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Expeditors in May 2013.

Interview Details – I saw the job opening through my school's career services website & sent my resume through the school. I was emailed about a week later about setting up an interview by the Accounting manager. It was explained to me that they like to have several people interview potential employees to get different opinions. I was first interviewed by the Sales manager and then someone working in Accounting. A little over a week after the first interview, I was contacted via email by the Accounting manager to come back in and speak with her. At this second interview, I first interviewed with two people working in the Accounting department and then finally by the Accounting manager. She informed me I would know something by the end of the day. I was called that evening with an offer.

As far as questions, they were standard interview questions.
"Tell me about you"
"Go through each job on your resume & explain what you did there and how it relates to this job"
"What do you know about Expeditors?"
"Would your being in school be a problem?" (I'm in graduate school)

Interview Question – It's not the most difficult question, but I was unprepared for the salary question during my first interview.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I had already read on here that they don't negotiate on salary & I was offered several thousands more than I said during second interview so I accepted.

Interview Details – After two phone interviews, there was a series of three interviews. The first was with managers from another group. The second was with the hiring manager and one of her colleagues. The third was with higher management. Between the first and second interviews, there was a worksheet to fill out. The worksheet involved describing mapping requirements for one scenario and then identifying bugs in a code sample.

Interview Question – Questions were pretty typical. None stood out as difficult.   Answer Question

Quality Assurance Intern Interview

Quality Assurance Intern
Seattle, WA

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Expeditors.

Interview Details – I had a phone interview which lasted about half an hour with basic questions and information. I then received an offer for an in person interview, three of their employees interviewed me at the same time and went down my resume and asked me questions on my activities and history as well as "Tell me about a time when..." questions.
The dress code at the office is extremely professional.

Interview Question – They gave me a technical question, by presenting me with 3 printouts of different web pages of a hypothetical website. They gave me 10 minutes alone to go through the website and think of ways of how the website could be tested for quality assurance. Basically, how to go about finding bugs in the website. It wasn't very difficult however, and they were encouraging of my answers.   Answer Question
