    Broker Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Total Quality Logistics.

    Interview

    It's a pretty intense process that can last 1-3 weeks depending on when you get everything done. First is just a basic phone interview with the recruiter and you'll have to pretend sell something. Then you'll have a couple short tests you'll do on site- state abbreviation and locate on map, basic math calculations, a typing test- words/min, and one or two others but they let you know in advance and you can review. They aren't difficult. You'll have a homework assignment that varies from person to person, but mine was take a company or product and break it down into the most simple items that can be shipped. (Like even breaking down the components it takes to make an ink cartridge.) The last is the in-person interview with 1-3 managers. They can be intimidating, but they do it on purpose to see how you respond. Be prepared to defend your answers or give examples/explanations for things they bring up or challenge on your resume. They love to hear people are money-motivated and competitive, if you can work that in, and someone who is good with working as long/hard as possible to be the best. Basically willing to go above and beyond, and keep at it when things get challenging. Multiple people who I worked with didn't get it their first time applying. You can reapply every 6 mos, and they did, and obviously got it at some point. One girl said it actually took her 4 times applying for them to hire her.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Total Quality Logistics.

    Interview

    I was contacted by one of their HR people and she said they liked my resume, then I didn't hear from her for a while and she said she was out of the country, she seemed like a nice lady, we scheduled a phone interview which I thought went well, the hardest thing was the sales pitch, after that, I got an email from someone else from the company telling me I didn't get the job. Kind of a waste of time since it took almost a month. But it's ok because their training takes too long (6 months, during which you get no commission) and the work schedule is 5 am to 4 pm. That would've been impossible for me.

    It consists of multiple interviews and some tests they have you take that you have to pass as well. I highly suggest taking advantage of the job shadow there so youunderstand what their work looks like.
