Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at C.H. Robinson (Atlanta, GA) in June 2016.

Interview

It was a panel of 2 people and they asked a lot of what I thought were very personal questions. No sales questions (this was for an entry level position so I have very little experience). I am changing careers (I was a teacher) so they asked me a lot about my past job experiences and "well how did that make you feel..." Questions. They showed me around the office and let me shadow somebody for about 20 minutes.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at C.H. Robinson (Eden Prairie, MN) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Formal interview in HQ in Eden Prarie. Two hiring managers were friendly but very business, fast paced oriented. Pretty standard cookie cutter interview. I tried to joke around with them and they didn't seem too interested. I was taking a pay cut to try to enter the logistics field, but they didn't wan to hear about my career, rather how I could fit into their fast paced team. Did not sound like a place i'd like to work.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at C.H. Robinson.

    Interview

    I first had to pass a phone interview where I was asked about my current job and experiences that would help me in the role of sales executive.
    At the actual interview, after a brief overview of the job, I sat down with two different sales executives for 30 minutes each. Got to watch them work and ask them any type of question related to the job. After that I sat down with another woman from H.R. and went through a normal type of interview. Finally it ended with a hypothetical scenario that was given to me where I was a sales executive pitching to a company. The two people I was pitching to were a woman from H.R. and a manager who were acting as potential buyers of the product I was selling. I was given 20 minutes to prepare for the pitch.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at C.H. Robinson (Atlanta, GA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    It started off with a tour of the office where I got to meet a lot of employees. Then 2 upper managers held a team interview with pretty standard questions. Then I was paired up with one of the employees and got a chance to see what the day-to-day job functions are. Then I was brought back in to a meeting room and asked a few more questions.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at C.H. Robinson (Milwaukee, WI).

    Interview

    They were very nice and friendly But mislead me. She guaranteed that I would be called back for another interview. Something about personally handing my resume to her boss. I followed up with a nice thank you and then I never heard form them again. It left me with a bad taste about the company even though I had thought so high of them.
