Logistics Sales Account Executive Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Schneider in June 2014.
Interview Details Initial phone interview was a basic behavioral interview. Next day was invited for face-to-face. 2 panel interview: more basic behavioral questions. Then I spent time with an employee on the call floor. He explained how things worked, didn't really seem to dig his job. Following day was offered job.
Reason for Declining – 35k base salary with no negotiations
Supply Chain Specialist Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Schneider.
Interview Details Hour phone interview and hour in-person interview at office. The managers interviewing me seems pretty unprofessional. The woman refused to answer any of my questions and directed her manager to do so. The entire time he was putting down his team saying some of them are "not so smart". I heard back a response fairly quickly because they were looking to hire someone asap. Overall, I found the experience extremely negative and this office seems to be a place where I would be unhappy to work at.
Interview Question – None really. I was told the interview would be behavioral based and it was not. Answer Question

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Schneider.

Very standard interview questions.

Inside Sales Account Executive Interview (Positive Experience)
I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Schneider.
Interview Details Met a sales manager and sales representative at my school's career fair. The next day I had am interview scheduled with the two gentleman that I met the previous day. They then asked me at the end of the interview if I wanted to continue with the process to then submit my resume and information through their online careers website. I did that and an HR person contacted me within a few days after that. I was at Schneider's office in Chicago for my final interview about two weeks later. I interviewed with two account managers. They were somewhat standoffish, very serious and very professional. And after an hour and a half interview I left and a few days later the HR person called me and offered me the job.
Interview Question – The questions were just really normal behavioral questions. The most unexpected question was when you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up? Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I had other opportunities available at my disposal.
Customer Service Representative Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Schneider in September 2013.
Interview Details Schneider contacted me a couple days after applying and scheduled a phone interview. Phone interview went great and lasted about 30 minutes! A couple days later received a call from a recruiter to come back for an in person interview.
The in person interview was awful. It's a panel interview with 3 "middle" management individuals that lasted an hour. Their questions were ridiculous! Who asks something like "what do you do to motivate people"? I'm interviewing for a Customer Service position, not a managment position. I have never had to motivate people!
Anyway, the interview was very intimidating and it felt like they were trying to break me. They weren't even interested in getting to know me as a worker or individual...just supid behavioral questions that are not related to the job.
I ended up accepting another position with a better Company for more pay.
Schneider also never got back to me.
