I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Worldwide Express in October 2013.
Interview Details – I went in for my first interview and met with Nathan and Devon. They asked me general questions. I was then asked to come back for a field ride with Nathan. This lasted for half of the day. Next interview was a field ride with Devon. The field rides were interesting and the key determining factor for me.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Worldwide Express in April 2012.
Interview Details – The interview was a 3 step process with a job shadow included.
Interview Question – It was pretty generic for a b2b sales interview. Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Worldwide Express.
Interview Details – Contacted by recruiter first. Hard sold on the position. Recruiter was very motivated to get me in. Accepted interview in Southfield, MI. Interview was a cake walk. No high pressure questions. More a meet and greet.
Interview Question – Asked to answer 2 take home questions through email. "Having been a manager in another sales field, how will you adapt to starting once again from the bottom?" View Answer
Reason for Declining – The position required driving to an office in Southfield, then driving to accounts all around the southeast michigan area and then driving back to the office before returning home each night. I leave nearly an hour away from the territory and office. Commuting costs would have been unreasonable.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Worldwide Express in July 2013.
Interview Details – A recruiter contacted me about the opportunity. I then met with the branch manager and he was very professional. He was friendly but tough and felt like he was a very sharp younger guy. I wasn't offered the job but they called me and informed me why another person was chosen over me. A very professional place from what I saw.
Interview Question – How would I bring value to the company? Answer Question
Interviewed at Worldwide Express
Interview Details – I had a face to face interview with the regional manner. The interview was casual to a fault. The manager asked me personal questions about my family. It felt like a 70 minute blind date more than a professional interview. He said I would hear back from him within a week, but I never did, which was okay with me. Overall, the experience was strange and off putting.
Interview Question – So, tell me about your family dynamic? Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Worldwide Express in January 2013.
Interview Details – After submitting my resume, I got a call from the manager of the branch to which I applied asking me to come in for an interview. I went in for the interview and had a casual one on one interview/conversation with the manager. The questions were very basic and there was nothing difficult or unexpected asked (although be sure to know information about the company). The process was very conversational and I felt as though I answered all the questions quite well and that my answers were well received. I followed up with a call to the manager 2 days later by leaving a voice mail but did not hear back. They say that they call back within a week and so at the end of the week following the interview I left a second followup message, again requesting a return call to ask some additional questions about the job (which is something I was specifically told I should do if I though of any). I did not receive a callback for either of my follow-ups.
Interview Question – Since I see you were not a business major, why do you want to get into sales and why do you think you'd be good at it? Answer Question
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Worldwide Express in December 2009.
Interview Details – In-person interview first, questions given to take home and answer within the same day, ride-along, phone interview with RVP of Sales.
Interview Question – What will your commitments be to the company - list 6. Not expected, but a good way of holding people responsible. Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Worldwide Express in September 2012.
Interview Details – First, I went through a phone screening with a recruiter. Then, I had a one-on-one interview with the sales manager. The next step was a field ride with one of the sales reps within the office. At this point of the interview process I knew the job wasn't a best fit for me. Within the field ride I was taken to a lower income neighbor to make cold sales pitches to local businesses, where my safety was put into serious question. This job is a huge grind. Understand, that it's your job to drop into local businesses unexpected and solicit potential business owner with Worldwide Express's services. And yes, you will get ugly responses from time to time.
Interview Question – Why did you attend the college that you did? View Answer
Reason for Declining – Company culture was unequal, my safety was put into question, commission structure was unbalanced, & lots of unprofessionalism within employees.

Interview Details – Phone interview, field ride, final interview with Manager
Interview Question – No difficult questions but they keep asking why you would be a good fit for the company Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Too good to be true earning potential.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Worldwide Express in June 2010.
Interview Details – After an initial Phone Interview with a local recruiter. The initial 1:1 interview with local Worldwide Express franchise owner was arranged. I was surprised because it was more of a laid back conversation than the typical interview I was used to with the other companies I interviewed with out of college. We discussed my background and went over my resume. I had a few homework questions (What will I bring to Worldwide Express? What is attractive about the opportunity at a career with Worldwide Express? Etc.) which I answered via email that night.
I contacted the recruiter who informed me that I'd been invited back for a second interview/field ride. This is where I was able to interview Worldwide Express. I met the Director of Sales before heading out for a day with an Account Executive. I shadowed her through meetings, phone calls, and prospecting for new business. I made a few cold calls myself. I was given a few more questions to think about throughout the day (Why would someone want to work with Worldwide Express? Why do we take an aggressive sales approach? Etc.) which I went over with the franchise owner at the end of the day.
I was invited back for the third and final Group Interview where I made my Business Plan Presentation to the franchise owner and Director of Sales. I gave them my sales activity projections for 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, and beyond and ran a meeting where I basically sold myself. I was offered the Account Executive position on the spot.
Negotiation Details – I chose not to negotiate. Aside from various jobs throughout high school and college, this position offered me a career focus. The base pay and commission structure was very competitive with other offers I received.
