    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at FREIGHTQUOTE (Kansas City, MO) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Three people interviewed me for the job and it took 2.5 hrs. They repeated a lot of the same questions and put me out on the floor with one of the sales representatives. This job is mostly cold calling. There's a pool for leads but every other employee has access to it. If you have connections with someone in CR you'll d great here if not, it's every man for itself. Different work environment and doesn't really have much privacy. Extremely diverse
