    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview with a Supervisor then a formal interview with HR then with the actual hiring manager. After interview I took an online personality test that's intended to match applicants to the requirements of the position. I received an email notification that I had not made it to the next step in the process.

    It used to be easier to get a job a Panalpina. They are definitely becoming more selective than what I heard.
