    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wilmer, TX
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Schenker (Wilmer, TX) in December 2015.

    Interview

    It was a good interview but they low ball the positions for the amount of work they are requesting for the individual to complete daily. The department seems a little disorganized and not real flow to get tasks done.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Schenker (Houston, TX) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Met with site GM & was asked ten standard interview questions about my experience. All very standard questions, nothing remarkable or difficult. I do know that site has grown substantially, and interviews are probably much more formal now, and most likely conducted by an HR professional now.

    There was a multi-page list of interview questions for new hires when I left the company, and these questions ranged from simple and expected skills based questions to more complex behavioral questions. There are far more behavioral questions than skills based in the packet.

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Schenker in November 2010.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of a very intense phone interview conducted by the Sales Manager, lasting 2 1/2hours long. The questions were taken from the "STARS" interview method. I finally received an offer after 3 months of waiting. The salary that was offered did not represent the fair market value for an Account Executive in the Los Angeles area. Although I tried negotiating a higher, more feasible salary, it was not open for discussion. It was a take it or leave it type scenario.
