    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Norfolk, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at CMA CGM America (Norfolk, VA).

    Interview

    3 step process. This is not a place that just hires off the street. You need to know someone to get in the door. You interview with the dept. supervisor and Manager for the position you're applying for. If this goes will you will meet with the director and HR to discuss benefits and salary. This can be overwhelming if you're not used to being double teamed. Lots of questions relating to the job will be ask but other questions regarding your back ground and personal life will be ask. Nothing unprofessional.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Very low key and in private with HR and the director. The supervisors do not know your salary. Very open and easy.

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CMA CGM America (Norfolk, VA) in December 2011.

    Interview

    Interview took place in a conference room which started with HR. It then continued up the ladder ending with the director of the department. Asked the typical questions to see if there was an understanding of the company and industry. Questions then put you in scenarios and asked how you would react, deal, or handle the issue. Friendly and professional.

    Supervisor Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CMA CGM America (Norfolk, VA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Whenever you apply for any position, you have to first interview with HR person, then dept hiring. They both have forms of questions they HAVE to ask, which is irritating and seems pointless when you interview for more than one positions.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at CMA CGM America.

    Interview

    Received a phone call asking about myself, salary requirements, what I would be interested in applying for (had a couple of different options). Then I came in for an in-person interview. Interviewed with HR Manager, and then with Manager of my department. HR interview was typical, but the Manager of the department basically just told me about the position.
