    Regional Human Resources Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at XPO Logistics (High Point, NC).

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter for the regional HR manager position. The recruiter was very thorough and engaging during our initial conversation, which lasted over an hour. She kept in touch with me on a regular basis and scheduled a phone screen with the hiring manager as a next step. The hiring manager was equally engaging and very easy to talk to. After interviewing with the hiring manager I was scheduled to come onsite and meet with three more people including the head of HR. All three interviews were informative and encouraging. A couple of weeks later I was contacted by the recruiter who informed me that they decided to go with an internal candidate. I was very appreciative of the fact that she took the time to call me versus just sending me a rejection email. This made me realize this was definitely a team I wanted to work with one day. I would highly recommend this company and I admire how they handled the interview process from start to finish.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at XPO Logistics.

    Interview

    Entered building and not greeted by the receptionist. Waited 15 minutes past interview time to be taken back. Interview was interrupted multiple times. Overall a very different interview experience and felt as though I was a burden.

    HR Generalist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at XPO Logistics.

    Interview

    Brief 20-30 minute phone call with a recruiter. However, "on-site" experience sounded like it was a absolutely necessary. The recruiter wasn't able to articulate clearly why on-site experience was mandatory. On-site experience could be recreated in many ways. After the call was over, I followed up for an update. Imagine being a senior recruiter based out of North Carolina for over 2 years and not having the ability to follow up. Great follow up skills buddy (sarcasm). Anyway, I'm glad I was ghosted, as the recruiter had a dull personality, most likely a reflection of the company as a whole.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at XPO Logistics.

    Interview

    First came the phone interview with the recruiter. Very easy interview, chat. Then the interview with hiring manager that also flowed well. HR interview to follow. Recruiter called to tell me things went well to expect a call to set up the final interview. I sent two follow up emails and they completely ghosted me. Wouldn’t be such a big deal except the recruiter led me on. What kind of person/company does that?

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at XPO Logistics.

    Interview

    I was asked to describe my competencies in the warehouse/logistics field. This was good, because it allowed me to describe abilities relevant to other, better jobs than the one for which I applied, of which I was not aware. It must be said about XPO: candidates considered for one position are not strictly considered for only that position.
