Account Executive Trainee Interview

Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PLS Logistics Services.

Interview

Spoke over the phone with a recruiter. Asked me a bunch of typical questions, such as my upbringing and what interested me in logistics. Afterwards, the recruiter went into more detail about the company and what the position's role more entails. Overall, a pretty basic phone screening. There didn't feel like a whole lot of pressure during the phone interview, but it's important to have specific leadership or trail scenarios you've experienced in mind going into it.

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at PLS Logistics Services (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    Phone call from in house recruiter. Meeting with a group manager. Interview was interesting. Talked about sales background and all that. Why I want to work there. What is my goal amount of money. Can I make cold calls and if I know anything about trucking.It's pretty weird only because they'll hire nearly anyone anyways to support the brokers that are making a lot of money. You're either in the top 5-10% or you're calling trucks gathering account info for those people.

After meeting with the recruiter on site, you are brought on the sales floor to shadow a current employee.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at PLS Logistics Services (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    Pretty Standard Interview process. Was contacted by a recruiter. Had a phone interview with the recruiter. She was very nice, upfront, and didn't hide any details. The phone interview just ran through your resume. Next had an in person interview. When I arrived I skyped with a person from corporate. Still very standard resume based questions. Afterwards you shadow a current employee then after have an interview with the office manager. This interview was a bit more difficult as it leaned towards more situational questions. I received an offer that same day! Overall the process was easy and everyone involved was very nice and personable.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at PLS Logistics Services (Seattle, WA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    My interview process was enjoyable. I applied to the company website and had a phone screening with a very outgoing and friendly recruiter located in Seattle. Then I was scheduled for an interview at the Seattle office, where I skyped with a recruiter from the headquarters. She was very kind. It was a professional setting and most of the questions were about my resume and experience. After my Skype interview I shadowed on the sales floor and met with the group sales manager. I was offered the job within 24 hours and accepted the position. Company seems quite successful and filled with energetic, young people.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at PLS Logistics Services (Pittsburgh, PA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    First had a phone screening which went well and I was called in for an in person interview. The first part of the in person interview was a skype call with someone from their corporate office. The second part was with two of the office managers. Both of the in person parts only lasted about 20 minutes and they had very basic questions.
