    Pros

    Solid company, good benefits, many opportunities

    Cons

    While corporate management is sound, mid-level/local management tends to have issues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train you local/mid-level managers in how to manage. Don't be afraid of them.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position online and was given an interview. When I went in for the interview I spoke with two of the customer service managers. I answered all questions during the interview and didn't have to very long for a response with an offer to work for the company.

    Interview Questions
    • I think the most difficult question to answer was what I thought my best skill or attribute was that would make me perfect for the position. My answer was my attention to detail that was drilled into during my time spent in the US Navy.   Answer Question
