    Inside Sales Support 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).

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted by recruiter a few days later. Asked some standard questions and we reviewed my resume - was told afterwards I would be contacted by hiring manager in the coming weeks. Hiring manager called approximately 1.5 weeks later, duplicated the previous call and asked to schedule in person interview the following week. In person interview was with 3 managers at corporate location in the Woodlands - nice modern office feel. Each asked questions from corporate material but were all standard and easy to answer if you've done some research on the company. Interview went very well and managers all were personable and seemed to enjoy their job and the company as a whole. This interview was on a Monday afternoon and I received an offer Friday morning.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Maersk Line (The Woodlands, TX).

    Interview

    The first round was done thru phone by an HR representative in a different state. Typical behavioral interview questions. Three weeks later I was offered an in-person interview.

    Sales Support Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Florham Park, NJ
    No Offer
    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.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Charlotte, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Maersk Line (Charlotte, NC) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I met with two of the main supervisors for this position.It was a very low key process. Each of the interviews took turns asking questions. It was almost like having a normal conversation about your resume. Very informal and very down to earth. It was one of the most relaxed interviews I have experienced. We were able to talk about each questions and really iron out my experiences, but in a way where I did feel pressured or nervous.

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Average interview questions (Why Maersk, tell me about a conflict, what systems do you use, etc).   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Easy, received a response the very next day.

    Maersk Liner Graduate Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in The Woodlands, TX
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Maersk Line (The Woodlands, TX).

    Interview

    The HR recruiter called me for a phone interview. She did not seem smart, bragged that she got 5 job offers after graduation, and said she "knows" one of the preeminent thinkers in my field (because she watched a video about him in class-- okay.) She asked mostly behavioral questions (Tell me a time when...), but after the interview, I couldn't help but feel that my application was screwed if she was the one going to assess it.

    Interview Questions

    • Mainly behavioral questions. "Tell me a time when you took the lead on a project." etc.   Answer Question
