    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Maersk Line (Charlotte, NC) in August 2010.

    Interview

    The HR Director, Hiring Director, Senior Director, and a Project Manager interviewed me in a conversation style interview that lasted two hours. Each person embellished on the previous person's conversation and we went through about five rounds. It was not difficult but was quite specific.

    Talent Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norfolk, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Maersk Line (Norfolk, VA) in December 2013.

    Interview

    HR employee found my resume on Monster and contacted me for a phone interview. The phone interview was about 30 minutes long and went into high level interview questions about my past work experience. The in person meeting went from 8:30am - 6:30pm. I met with all of the team members, had lunch with the entire team, delivered a 45 minute presentation on a specific task, and finally met with the HR Director for over 4 hours (2 hours past the set interview time). She was nice but seemed to want to prove her knowledge in Psychology. At the end of the week, I received a call from the HR employee asking me if I was still interested in the position, what my salary expectations were, and telling me that they have great benefits. He verbally offered me the position and told me that he would put together an offer letter the following day. The next day passed and I emailed him. He then told me that he was busy and would get me an offer letter by Thursday. Thursday passed and I called him on Friday afternoon. He finally called me back to tell me "we call really like you but the HR director has decided to go in a different direction and wanted to continue looking for other candidates". I later saw a new add out for a more junior level position. Overall, probably the most unprofessional experiences that I have ever had interviewing. I am glad that I found out how they treated people earlier than actually being employed in the company.

    Sales Support Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in The Woodlands, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Maersk Line (The Woodlands, TX).

    Interview

    Typical - quick and painless. I received a call from the HR rep in New Jersey. We had a 20 minute phone interview where she asked me generic questions such as tell me what you currently do, why are you looking to leave, what are your plans/goals, describe yourself, etc. She then invited me for a face-to-face interview at the local office in The Woodlands, TX (Houston). Met with 2 people at the same time, took about 45 minutes and asked more behavioral and typical interview questions. Very laid back and easy-going. A few days later I received a call from the HR rep with an offer. From the time I had my initial interview to the time they called to let me know the background/drug test was clear and discussed a start date, took about 2 weeks.

    Sales Support Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in The Woodlands, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Maersk Line (The Woodlands, TX) in December 2013.

    Interview

    The process started with a phone call to confirm my interest in the position, and to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview was a few days later, conducted by a corporate (NJ) employee. It lasted about 40 minutes and was fairly standard questions (Why do you want to work here? How do you prioritize tasks/handle a lot of work that has to be done at once? What are your career goals?) It was about a week week before I was offered an on-location interview at The Woodlands, TX office, which was scheduled several days later.

    The in-person interview consisted of a short interview with an HR employee, about 20 minutes. This was somewhat like the phone interview (Why do you want to work here? Tell me about your work history. What skills make you a good fit for this role?) Then there was a longer interview with the department supervisor and GM, about 40 minutes. This started with asking what I knew about the company and continued with more in-depth experiential and behavioral questions, including an open-ended prompt to discuss my work history. The interviewers were very personable and friendly.

    It was more than two weeks before I was given a tentative offer of employment by the GM, and then several more days before I was given a formal offer by corporate. The next day I received an email with a website to access to initiate the background check. (You should have all info available: work dates, pay rates, graduation dates, etc. for this process) After this was complete, the website prompted me to schedule a drug test at a participating location of my choice. I completed the drug test the same day. I did the background check form and the drug test as soon as I got them (at the beginning of the week), which seems to have sped things up because initially I was quoted a start date of three weeks later, but was able to start much sooner.

    There was no personality test or IQ test as related by less recent applicants. They must have done away with this part of the process for the time being.

    Sales Support Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Maersk Line (Florham Park, NJ) in July 2016.

    Interview

    After applying, I received an email from HR, wanting to have a phone interview. The phone interview went on as planned and was very professional and standard. They immediately wanted to schedule an in person interview following the positive outcome of the phone interview. However, after learning it was a supporting role for the west coast division it was no longer of interest because being based on the east coast the hours were not desirable for me. They were looking for 10am-7pm however, they seemed very negotiable regarding salary.
