    The interview process started well - good phone interview, great in-person interview, but communication has been terrible since the in-person interview with the hiring team constantly pushing back the date for a definitive answer.

    Carrier Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    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.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greenville, SC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at C.H. Robinson (Greenville, SC).

    Interview

    I originally applied and interviewed for the Carrier Representative role in the charleston, sc office. The interview was a little intimidating since they had four people interview me at once, which was really excessive and then I spent an hour and half job shadowing with several different roles. The following week they called and asked me to interview for the account manager role in their greenville office, which I assumed was a good sign if they were asking me to come back. This interview was more like an intergoation with about 20 situational questions that I thought I did a really good job on. However a day later they rejected me. This company is more interested in hiring people with experience even if it doesn't even relate to the logistics industry, instead of people who are coming out of college and want to work hard and have a degree in that area. Your better off going to work for a less structured company where you can make uncapped commissions and not deal with the bureaucracy.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at C.H. Robinson (Minneapolis, MN) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed over the phone with a recruiter from Minnesota, and I am from TN. The first time we had the interview, the recruiter accidentally hung up on me. I tried calling her right back, but I got no answer. I emailed her when I got home, and she said that she called me right back, but she did not. When we had the second over the phone interview, she was disrespectful, and acted like she really didn't want to mess with me. She is a very bad recruiter.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at C.H. Robinson in January 2017.

    Interview

    Pretty formal. The interview took about 45 minutes.

    It was a very one sided interview. They weren't able to answer questions until the end of the interview. They just asked questions, and you were to answer. This meant that there was no conversation, it was just a question and answer.
