    Pros

    The culture, the Expeditors family, the work ethic, the professionalism and the culture of limitless potential. There is strong leadership and a true open door policy. We are our harshest critic on all fronts and we set high expectations for ourselves (and from our customers) and are focused on exceeding them daily.

    Cons

    Great place for a career not for a job. We work hard, but play hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to make the place a place of limitless potential.

    Software Development Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Expeditors in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Four rounds of interviews, two phone and three in-person. Standard technical questions. The team seemed nice enough, but the environment was not as casual as other tech-jobs in the area. Their offices are large downtown and most people were in corporate attire. The team sat in cubicles with high walls. Not the sort of open, casual environment that I enjoy.

    Reasons for Declining

    Their background check seemed pretty invasive - there didn't seem to be any justification for that. Also, their offer was below my salary in a lesser role. All added up to a thanks, but no thanks.
