    Interview

    Good Interview, they were friendly and personable. Explained the company real well and did most of the talking. More of an informal interview. Talked about things in your life to try and get a feel for your personality. Overall it was a good experience.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Worldwide Express.

    Interview

    Initial interview was easy-going. Lots of behavioral questions asked. The second and third rounds of interviewing were more intense and interactive. More managers were involved and I was exposed to a day in the life of an account exec. Overall great experience.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Worldwide Express (Pittsburgh, PA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    One of the best interview experience I have had. The hiring manager was very personable and took the time to get to know me in the lobby before my first F2F interview with the regional sales manager. The interview lasted about an hour and I was invited back for a full day job shadow. Ironically enough, we pitched business in the business park where my old company and an affiliate had offices. On the interview I broke the ice, introduced myself and the manager, and questioned qualified customer to figure out their shipping habits. I was offered the position after the interview but decided to choose another that had a higher base salary and more aggressive commission structure. Great place to work and great people, but they lost me on the compensation.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Worldwide Express.

    Interview

    The interview process consists of an initial interview with the local manager, then a ride-along day, followed by another interview with the higher-ups.

    I went in for the initial interview and right off the bat was asked to just talk about my life for 10 minutes. This position was listed as an entry-level position with no experience required, and while I did have relevant experience, I am a recent college graduate - lets be honest, there isn't that much to talk about. After I finished my life story, the interviewer proceeded by telling me about the company and the interview process. After that, the interviewer thanked me for coming in and said it was very nice to meet me without offering any sort of follow-up timeline, so I asked what the next step was. I was told to send an email with my availability for the ride-along along with a paragraph each on what Worldwide Express could do for me and what I can bring to Worldwide Express. I followed directions and sent an email that same day - only to get an email back the next morning saying never mind, they're going in a different direction!

    In all, I was not asked ONE QUESTION to answer about my previous work or school experiences. Not to mention during this interview, their phone kept ringing and buzzing and he kept checking it amidst the interview. It was the most bizarre and least professional interview experience I've ever had and the email request was a complete and utter waste of my time.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Worldwide Express (Detroit, MI) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly lengthy but very thorough. Although there were multiple steps to the interview process I really felt like I got a good understanding and handle on the expectations of what a person in sales at WWE does. First I came in for an initial interview with the Sales Manager and he had a very laid back interviewing style which was much more interactive and less structured than I have seen in the past. I appreciated that all the questions wern't, "Tell me a time..." Being a recent college graduate and that I don't have a lot of experience under my belt and I often get very frustrated with those types of questions because they don't adequately represent my work ethic and my drive for success.

    After the first interview he asked me to answer some questions and then I went out in the field with one of their senior sales reps. The day out in the field was long (since we were cold calling almost all day) but by the end of the day I had a descent understanding of the position. I then went back and talked to the Sales Manager again and ultimately found out from the recruiter that I didn't receive the position. All in all I'm pretty disappointed that I didn't get the position. The office environment seemed like somewhere I'd really like to work and everyone that I met was really outgoing and sociable.

    • In a matter of words I was asked why I wanted to cold call all day and it seemed like he was trying to see if I genuinely would enjoy the job each day.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Worldwide Express (Southfield, MI) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Recruiter emailed me about the opportunity. I went in for 1:1 interview with the sales manager. Then had a ride along with their top rep. Everything was going perfect until my 1:1 interview with the district manager. This interview directly followed the ride along (which could have not gone better). The interview with the District Manager got extremely personal after he told me about how great he was. My resume and life choices were scrutinized over and over again. I understand he was seeing how I handled objections (I had good reasons for the choices I had made) but he crossed personal lines many times. For some reason he couldn't understand that people have different life experiences and have gone through trials and tribulations that are PERSONAL. Not everyone has had the same opportunities and not EVERYTHING in one's life needs to be exposed in order to decide if someone is the right fit for a position. I followed up with the recruiter and sales manager--I never heard anything back.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Worldwide Express in February 2014.

    Interview

    I went to the first interview and had a 1 on 1 with the sales manager of the office. The job was explained in details including responsibilities, training and expectations. After the first interview, I was brought back for a full day field ride with one of their senior reps. I felt like the field ride went well, but I wasn't asked back for the next step in the process. Apparently Worldwide Express only hires a handful of people every year so it is a tough place to get into. They definitely don't just hire anyone. I plan to try again when I have some more experience.
