    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Total Quality Logistics (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    The phone interview was very easy. There is an in-office assessment on the computer which is easy. The in person interview we went through my resume A THIRD TIME. Then she asked me the same questions we went over on the phone. Thought that was weird and made it seem like they weren't interested.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Total Quality Logistics (Anderson, OH).

    Interview

    I was called before I even was looking for a job by a recruiter. I told her then that I wasn't entirely interested in the position and she continued to push for me to apply. I went ahead and applied and after the initial phone interview (more like a sales pitch) I made it clear to her that I was not interested in the job. They have continued to call almost daily to try and recruit. Recruiters are only out for their best interest not yours.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Total Quality Logistics (Charlotte, NC) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Average interview, they called to make sure I was still interested in the position about a day or two after applying and setup a phone interview. After 2 phone interviews they had me do a skype interview and after that I was offered a position. I accepted because it sounds like a decent position to start at within the company.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Total Quality Logistics (Orlando, FL) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online. First had a phone screening with recruiter that lasted about 20 minutes. Then was asked to do an in person interview. Went in to the office and first had to complete an online assessment which had questions on the company (when it started, the name of the CEO, etc) and many time zone and state related questions and some math questions. They also have you watch a video where you get to hear real sales calls. The recruiter mentioned the average score of the assessment is somewhere in the 70s - can't remember the exact percentage. The assessment is done at a computer desk/station around other reps. Music was blaring and people were loud and goofing off with each other which made it a little difficult to hear the video and concentrate. After the assessment I met with the recruiter from the phone screening and had an in person interview. Simple interview, however I was told I wasn't mean enough for this job (except for that she used a word I can't post on Glassdoor). Not a ton of professionalism in this office - this is definitely a place for very easy-going people. The next step was an in person interview with the Group Sales Manager. When scheduling this, they also ask you to complete an assignment finding manufactures (see a full description in the interview question below). The manager asked if I completed this and I gave it to him, but we never discussed the assignment. I also had a chance to shadow two fairly new reps. Very normal interview questions and nothing out of the ordinary. They are very open about the negative reviews of the job. Work/life balance is not important to this office - they have you work late nights and Saturdays - all they care about is making money.

    Interview Questions

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Total Quality Logistics (San Antonio, TX) in December 2016.

    Interview

    First met a recruiter, scheduled a phone interview where they were really nice, and then the first in person interview. Took a geography quiz, nice interview, scheduled a final one. Final interviewer used scare tactics from the 80s to test my reaction to being uncomfortable. He was so rude and said I had a day to respond to the offer and said I didn't have the personality for the job.

    Reasons for Declining

    The final interview was the ONLY aggressive one. I didn't appreciate the misleading cute and cuddly first stages of the process. They gave me one day to decide on my offer and treated me like a crazy person for wanting time to deliberate.
