    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.

    Interview Details

    First is an initial phone interview. If you do well, then they will ask you to come meet face to face with a few people. They ask a lot of behavioral questions and about leadership. They are very straight forward in their hiring process and fairly quick at getting back to you in a timely matter.

    I interviewed online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Schneider in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    The Human Resources manager was a joke. He was not even in the room for most of the interview. The manager that I interviewed with seemed very knowledgable and was a pleasure to speak to. She took me around to meet the other managers and many of the key employees.
