    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Total Quality Logistics (Columbus, OH).

    Interview

    Three step interview, first over the phone interview with recruiter and then in person interview with recruiter. You then proceed to take a test over the computer, leaving a voicemail telling the hiring manager why you should be hired, and then an interview with hiring manager. Interview with hiring manager is challenging and extensive, you may feel you did horrible afterwards.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Total Quality Logistics (Cincinnati, OH) in May 2015.

    Interview

    3 process interview-phone interview, then a shadow and face to face with leads, then an interview with the hiring manager. Everything went awesome, and everyone was nothing short of amazing and extremely helpful. The recruiter I started out with helped me fix my resume, gave me tips on how to interview and was the nicest person I think I ever met. She truly loves her job and showed me TQL is a company that cares about their employee's success and really motivates them. Its not easy but what job would be fun or worth it without a challenge?

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Total Quality Logistics (West Chester, OH) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It started with a "feeler" interview followed by a 20 minute phone interview. Questions seemed easy, more of can you handle the demands of the job. The company set up a hirevue interview and an online test. The test was very easy. The interview was friendly and more of the can you handle the job type questions. From there you are given a homework assignment which is similar to the job. You have to find companies that manufacture items and different shipping companies. A second hirevue with the sales manager and HR guy is the final interview. It's more of how hard the job is and how demanding it is.
    The company strings you along through all of the interview process (mine took three weeks and a total of five hours). Not sure what they are looking for but it isn't someone who is willing to do the work and is willing to do it for very little money.
    It also took more than two weeks to tell me they were not going to offer the job.
    As an oh by the way, the homework assignment seems like a ploy to get you to give up free leads.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    They called a day or two after applying online to set up the phone interview and ended up scheduling it for later that day. Phone interview was very basic, a little background about yourself and why you are applying for the position. Afterwards they brought me in for what was going to be a 4 hour on-site interview that starts with a short informational video. You then leave a voicemail with a sales pitch for why you are a good fit for the position and take a brief test before getting time to spend with some of the current employees to ask questions. Usually this on-site portion is split into two 2 hour days, but since I lived several hours away it was all one day. I then was going to interview with the hiring manager but I told them the position wasn't a good fit for me so my interview was over at that point.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Total Quality Logistics (Cincinnati, OH).

    Interview

    First was a phone interview and then an onsite visit. While onsite I took a US Geography (just like in 6th grade) test and another test where I listened to a phone call and then had to answer multiple choice questions. After that I did a job shadow with 2 different employees for about 30 minutes each. The work environment was somewhat unprofessional and you could tell who the golden boys were and some of the employees were cussing (jokingly) with each other.

    After the job shadow I had a panel interview with a woman manager and her boss. I think he might have been evaluating her. She was nice and asked her questions first, I felt like I aced that part. Then her boss had a turn asking questions and he generally acted rude and unprofessional almost like he was trying to show off in front of one of his employees... like he was trying to show her how to be a tough guy during interviews. I wish he would've conducted his training session on someone else's time.

    Interview Questions

    • Just the same questions over and over again about my work history. Either he was not listening to my answers or he wanted to see if I would change my answers. I really think he was just trying to show off in front of the other manager and couldn't come up with anything original.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Not impressed at all with the work environment. I'm disappointed I wasted my time with these guys. I also read the reviews on here after the interview and saw what it's REALLY like to work at TQL. I knew I could do better. :)
