    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Schneider.

    Interview Details

    Met a sales manager and sales representative at my school's career fair. The next day I had am interview scheduled with the two gentleman that I met the previous day. They then asked me at the end of the interview if I wanted to continue with the process to then submit my resume and information through their online careers website. I did that and an HR person contacted me within a few days after that. I was at Schneider's office in Chicago for my final interview about two weeks later. I interviewed with two account managers. They were somewhat standoffish, very serious and very professional. And after an hour and a half interview I left and a few days later the HR person called me and offered me the job.

    Inside Sales Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Evanston, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Evanston, IL
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Schneider.

    Interview Details

    My resume was passed along as an employee referral. Shortly thereafter, I received a phone call, did a phone interview, did a one-on-one interview, and later received a phone call offering me the position. I didn't find the interview to be especially difficult since I understand how brokering and logistics work. After accepting the position, the company had me pee in a cup test to make sure I know how to pass a pee test. Success!

    Negotiation Details
    None. It was a 35k base for one year. After a year, you're expected to make money with all the freight you move...or try to move.
