    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at freightquote.com in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I received a phone call setting up the interview, upon arriving at the facility I thought the campus was well kept and impressive as far as 'curb appeal'. After signing in at the front desk I was greeted happily and left a positive feeling. After a few minutes I was received by one of the Managers who was enthusiastic and full of energy. We went upstairs to a conference room where we (Myself, two product managers and their manager if memory serves) talked about freightquote, who they are and where they are going, followed by my past experience touching on different questions.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at freightquote.com.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process was quick as they seem to want to just bring in as many people as they can.

    For the interview they really didn't care about anything other than sales experience, which is understandable. All questions delt with sales experience and nothing else.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at freightquote.com.

    Interview Details

    Was first contacted for a phone interview. It was a short and basic interview asking about my background, why I was interested in the job, etc. Also asked some situational questions such as "give me a time when you had to deal with a complaint and how you reacted to it." Phone interview lasted about 20 mins. Got an email a few days later for an in-person interview at their headquarters office. First met with HR lady, basically went over the same thing as the phone interview but with a little more detail. Then was interviewed by one of the managers. That interview was more for me to sell myself to him on why I deserved the job. next he took me up stairs to the "floor" where I shadowed two different positions to get an idea of what day-to-day activities were like. I was at each position for about 45 mins. After those were done, had one more 5 min interview with another guy just for me to ask questions and such.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lenexa, KS
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at freightquote.com in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    You'll have at least two different people interviewing you. Most likely someone from HR and someone on the management side. Lots of generic questions you might hear from other interviews. Nothing drastic. They ask when you can bring to the company. Discuss any limitations that you may have. Be as honest as possible.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lenexa, KS
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at freightquote.com in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    It was an on site career fair. I walked in told them I was there for a sales position. Waited in line and they took us into these little curtained boxes. It was very fast paced and they didn't even look at my resume until I started referencing to it. They asked to describe my work ethic, how I overcome objections, and how I gained clients in my previous position. I thought we were done, and the HR rep asked if I had a few minutes to meet with a sales director. We went into another booth and he didn't look at my resume at all just talked really disinterested and kept telling me it was a "good job". It was frustrating because I was also trying to interview him. I wanted to learn more about their processes to see if I would be a good fit. He just kept saying "we will get into that later". The next day they called and said they wanted to make an offer after my background check, called 3 days later saying the background check wasn't done. They called today to see if I had any questions. I missed the call unfortunately but it's funny they even asked me to pick a start date, but I still don't have an offer.
