    Trainee Territory Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ritchie Bros. (Miami, FL) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I could tell that I was speaking to an HR representative that had zero idea about the industries that Ritchie Brothers serves. Very frustrating for those that are knowledgeable. The personality test is the all seeing eye is considered holy scripture at Ritchie Brothers. Be careful not to spend too much time hung up on a single question because that too is recorded.
