    Corporate gardening leads to healthier communities and more engaged employees

    In the spring of 2007, a few IT employees at Blue Cross and Blue Shield persuaded executives to let them cultivate 1,600 square feet of lawn on the expansive Eagan corporate campus for a "community giving garden" to provide fresh vegetables and fruit for a local food shelf.

  • Recently, our Guadalajara office branched out and collaborated with the Comisión Nacional Forestal to plant 200 trees in San Juan. See how we support our communities around the world: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQcve

    Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Springfield, MO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at C.H. Robinson (Springfield, MO) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was longer than expected, but I believe it was necessary because of what they're investing in you as an employee. I first went through a series of phone interviews. The first was simply a debriefing of who C.H. Robinson is and what the position entails. The second phone interview was much more intense. I spoke to the Senior Recruiter at C.H. Robinson and she made the decision on whether or not I advanced to the next interview. A week or so later, I was told that I got an invite to the branch that I applied to. During that interview, I sat down with the GM for a few hours and then shadowed other Sales Executives. Finally, I got called back and was asked to interview with their Manager of Sales. The whole process took about four weeks.
