    Programmer Analyst I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Paul, MN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at C.H. Robinson (Saint Paul, MN) in August 2016.

    Interview

    They initially emailed me to setup a phone interview. 10 minutes after the scheduled time, I got an email asking if I could reschedule for the next day. The next day, I didn't get the call until 12 minutes after our scheduled time, and I had to remind the interviewer of the position I applied for. It last around 5 minutes. She said she would contact me sometime in the next week to let me know whether or not they would like to move forward in the interview process, but even after a follow-up email, nothing.

    Overall, the recruiting team has not impressed me.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at C.H. Robinson (Chicago, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview, 3.5 hour final interview with a simulation. Simulation is very difficult. Do not show nerves and ask questions. Very great place to work, but must be prepared to be outgoing and confident in the interview.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at C.H. Robinson (Minneapolis, MN) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I had one phone interview, followed with 2 in person interviews. The phone interview was informal and great, I personally had a great conversation about my alma mater. The two in person interviews, were very standard. I was asked about various questions about my previous positions, my education, and why I would be a good fit. I also shadowed various people in the office, where I learned a bit more about positions in the office first hand. It was very important to use this time to engage and ask questions as well. After these interviews, I received a call the next day with the position being offered to me.

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

    Interview

    I didn't feel like they were up front about the amount of data entry required for this job. They asked situational questions aimed at seeing how I responded in team settings. They had a list of questions probably from corporate. Nothing too hard or weird. Didn't know how to answer some of the questions. They should have been more upfront in what the job entails instead of just saying problem solving, some data entry, and email.. It is way more data entry then I was lead to believe

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at C.H. Robinson.

    Interview

    First process was through corporate recruiter and phone interviews and assesments. Then moved to local interviews and a job shadow. Overall experience was good. The recruiter that was assigned to me was very helpful and answered any questions I had. The regional office took alot of time to get back to me though and had to follow up with the recruiter to make sure everything was in place. I ended up getting a better opportunity elsewhere
