    Operations Interview

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    No interview required. I was recruited by competitor that appreciated my knowledge and experience. The local shipping community is aware of the issues at my former employer, and many employees are being recruited for more suitable positions and salaries.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Panalpina (Nashville, TN).

    I had a high recommendation from a manager and was already working as a contractor so I didn't have much of an official interview. The manager told me I pretty much had the job.

    Air Export Customer Service Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Elk Grove Village, IL
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Panalpina (Elk Grove Village, IL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    This interview was at the Elk Grove Village location and was the strangest interview I had ever had.. I wish I had a tape recorder going on my cell. The male interviewer was extremely disrespectful towards women and said I couldn't have any outside work committments since the job required the person to be there all night, all weekend, and all hholidays until the work was finished. Then he asked me to let him know all the people I worked with in the past that caused issues and how the problem was solved. I'm not ratting out any former colleagues, no matter how much I disliked them, during an interview. The interviewer saying I couldn't have any commitments, which to me meant no kids or family, and him asking me to rat out past co-workers made me not want the job at all. Plus, his voice sounded like a creepy man out for no good towards women, 100 timea deeper than Wilson from Home Improvement.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Panalpina.

    Interview

    Got a call 2 days after the career fair at my school and the interview lasted about 45 minutes. Just answering questions about my resume and prior experiences. Didn't offer me the job because my school schedule conflicts with operation hours and they needed a full time agent. May try again once I graduate.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Panalpina (Morristown, NJ).

    Interview

    I had an initial phone interview that went really well. I was then brought in for an in person interview with my supervisor if I worked there. He asked maybe 5 questions and the rest was just chatting. He was acting like I had it even to the point of asking what date I can start. A week later he emailed me saying they wanted a grad student and were no longer considering me as an applicant.
