    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Petersburg, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at BNSF Logistics (Saint Petersburg, FL) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process went very smoothly, they are currently expanding to the SE USA region and are aggressively seeking talent. However, the new manager they selected for the Florida office has zero backbone. I received and offer, which I must admit was weak, given my predicament I accepted. Upon background screening the HR dept, discovered an 1 arrest w/ no convictions and revoked the offer. After this I was treated like a criminal which I am not. The HR rep was very communicative however, the manger had the final say, he failed to reach out to me to grasp the full capacity of the situation, essentially hiding behind his computer screen. Before this he had so much positive things to say to me, this revealed to me the level of desperation they are in to hire and under pay experience and senior level logistic agents. In addition, this also shows the level of conservative outlook they have. Beware.

    very simple, they didnt require an interview really because it is completely based off of commission. All you have to do is walk in and fill out some paper work and youre essentially an employee.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Springdale, AR
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at BNSF Logistics (Springdale, AR) in October 2014.

    Interview

    As interviews go, it wasn't too lengthy of a process. I had a phone screen with the recruiter that consisted of some general questions about my background. She was very knowledgable about the company and she answered all of my questions. She let me know the process, and that she would be recommending me for an in person interview with the manager. The BM reached out to me a week later and I had a face to face interview with him the following week and then another with the BM and a couple of the Transportation Coordinators.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at BNSF Logistics (New York, NY) in April 2018.

    Interview

    They say they want Diversity but they just mean white women. They were unintentionally overt about that. However I wasn't that upset because the job was not even remotely appealing.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BNSF Logistics (Wilmington, NC) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Very laid back and easy going interview. Hiring Manger did an excellent job explaining the position duties and room for growth. It felt more like chatting with a new friend than the typical pressure of interviewing for a job.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at BNSF Logistics.

    Interview

    The process was actually quite lengthy, only because the recruiter and I have been engaging in conversations and on and off emails through LinkedIn for the last few years. I simply was not ready to make a move when originally contacted. She continued to keep in touch with me, very patient, not at all pushy but also persistent -here I thought I was a good salesman! The process was quite thorough and there were several interviews via phone, face to face and even a presentation. It was a lengthy but an overall pleasant experience. Subsequently, I've been quite happy with my role.
