Logistics Account Executive Interview

Interview

I was contacted by email and then scheduled a phone interview. That was followed by a Web cam interview and an in person interview. I had some homework which they didn't ask for but it helped me understand their buisness. The in person interview started with shadowing a senior employee and then a newer employee who is just started.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Total Quality Logistics (Tampa, FL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Very straight-forward with basic questions, and a simple test involving math and US timezones. Know your states and timezones. Very busy and loud office with a lot of energy and chaos/movement.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Total Quality Logistics (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Was contacted by a hiring manager who was very helpful and friendly. Went through two phone interviews and asked basic behavioral questions and about past experience. Then had a Skype interview that was pretty generic and not challenging. One asked in for an in-person interview, they showed me around and shadowed a sales person for 30 minutes. Then I met with the hiring manager and his assistant where I was peppered with questions that seemed irrelevant and almost were trying to intimidate me. He tried to critique every word from my responses and turn them against me. Once I left the interview, I knew I didnt want to work at a place where they tried to scare you away from the beginning. Most bizarre interview I've been put through.

    Reasons for Declining

    The reason i declinded is because this is a JOB, not a career. One of those places where they get young college graduates excited to get a guaranteed salary, give you beer during the week to get you all hyped up abut the 'culture' and how cool it is to work there. once they train you for a little while, they send you out to get clients and build your own book of business. if arent successful quick enough, they put you to the side give you a kick on the behind and divide up any god clients to senior brokers who are already doing well. then wash rinse, repeat with a new class of college graduates.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Total Quality Logistics (Cincinnati, OH) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Everything leading up to my f2f interview was pleasant enough. The interview itself was clearly a good cop/bad cop situation. One interviewer was the person I had dealt with up to that point & couldn't have been more professional & personable. It was then turned over to the second interviewer, who was dressed shabbily & had her phone out the entire interview checking it periodically (I know it wasn't to check the time as there was a clock in the room). She proceeded to be incredibly condescending, borderline berating, disrespectful & even questioned my professionalism. After she was done with her interrogation (because THAT was not an interview) she addressed her remaining comments to the other interviewer & walked out without even a glance in my direction much less a hand shake or thanking me for my time. It was the most uncomfortable interview I have ever sat through in my 24 years in the work force. I am not surprised that, as she put it, "only 4% of the people that interview get hired " because with tactics like that who would want to work for this company?

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Total Quality Logistics in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was not as hard as I expected. I had two interviews with the recruiter and one with the hiring manager. I also shadowed two LAEs while I was there. Seems like a fun environment. The simulation you take is not bad at all. You have to listen to calls and then answer some questions about geography.

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter after I posted my resume online, very polite and professional process. Asked basic interview questions and went through about three phone interviews. TQL seems like a great place to work and a company where they invest in you as an employee. Overall a great experience even though I did not receive an offer.

    Interview

    It wasn't difficult, but the final interview was strange. There were two hiring managers and it was an intimidating atmosphere. The recruiter was great and very helpful. I loved the headquarters, but choose a different location that was closer to home.
