    Corporate Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Total Quality Logistics (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Applied for multiple positions. Recruiter called within a week reviewed company culture and job positions and pay. Decided on which ones would be best fit then she forwarded my info to main recruiter over position I decided to pursue. From there that recruiter had a phone conversation with me again, explaining nature of job, the industry and allowing questions. She then invited me for a formal phone interview. Had phone interview with more formal questions like. What do we do as a company? What qualities do you think you need to have for this position? Where do you want to be in 5 years? And then allowed for me to ask questions. Took about 45 minutes. She said it would be up to management who would go forward to the in person interview. After about a week I heard back from recruiter via email that they decided to pursue other candidates.

    Analyst Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Total Quality Logistics (Cincinnati, OH (US)).

    Interview

    I applied online and got reached out to by a recruiter within a week. Within the next week, I had a phone interview with the recruiter. It was all well until this point. The recruiter didn't respond to my emails for over a month before asking me in for an interview. After the first in person interview, it took a couple of ignored emails/calls and another month and a half to get invited in for a second interview. About a week after the second interview, they called me to tell me they hired an internal applicant, because internal hires are usually preferred to outside hires. It's understandable, but I would have vastly preferred to not get strung along for about 3 and a half months to find out about it.

    The interview questions were really easy, though. Barely anything technical. A lot of 'why did you apply?', etc.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Total Quality Logistics (Charlotte, NC (US)) in July 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call fairly quickly, we scheduled an interview. On the first day I took a four part test on TQL knowledge, map of the United States, Logistic math and a typing section. Once I passed the test I was taken to do a shadow of one of the Account Executives. Afterwards I spoke with the recruiter for 15-20 minutes. Then scheduled another interview with the hiring manager.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Total Quality Logistics in October 2017.

    Interview

    Had several interviews. Office is located in high-rise downtown. Wore a suit to the interview yet all employees wore sweat pants. There was no privacy since everyone sat close together in one big room. 22 weeks of training and working on Saturdays. Advice to Management: provide office elsewhere and add cubicles with free parking.

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Total Quality Logistics (Chicago, IL (US)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The woman interviewing me was evasive and somewhat mean. I understand that getting grilled is just a tactic for sales interviews but this woman straight up tore my resume apart, said that I have never worked hard or long hours, criticized me for not making enough money (I am a college student) and overall just made me feel like she did not want me in this role.

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Total Quality Logistics (Cleveland, OH (US)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter after submitting my resume. We had a few different conversations where he was just getting a feel for my personality and whether I would be a good fit at TQL. I eventually got brought in to the Cleveland (Independence) branch where I met with a couple sales representatives to get a better feel for the position before meeting with the branch manager. Overall TQL seems like a great place to work but they expect you to put in 60 hours a week including Saturdays without properly paying you for it.

    In addition, they did not mention the non-compete that you must sign. I only found out about through my recruiter/reading through the offer
