    Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Springfield, MO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at C.H. Robinson (Springfield, MO) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was longer than expected, but I believe it was necessary because of what they're investing in you as an employee. I first went through a series of phone interviews. The first was simply a debriefing of who C.H. Robinson is and what the position entails. The second phone interview was much more intense. I spoke to the Senior Recruiter at C.H. Robinson and she made the decision on whether or not I advanced to the next interview. A week or so later, I was told that I got an invite to the branch that I applied to. During that interview, I sat down with the GM for a few hours and then shadowed other Sales Executives. Finally, I got called back and was asked to interview with their Manager of Sales. The whole process took about four weeks.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at C.H. Robinson (Phoenix, AZ) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I was seated in a private conference room with the "Hiring Manager" and the Operations Manager. Throughout the process, the "Hiring Manager" (I found out later that was neither her title nor her job function) pitched questions that almost seemed forced. It was almost as if she was training for the role and the Operations Manager was constantly having to add to her statements or coax additional information out of her to make the interview questions clearer.
