    Just normal standard behavior questions, practice in advance you will be fine. Completely remote interview process. Fast-paced reviewing. But the recruiter is lack of enthusiastic and profession, even call me wrong name at all.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at XPO Logistics (Charlotte, NC (US)) in November 2020.

    Interview

    Talked with an internal recruiter first to cover salary and job details such as location and hours. Next I was scheduled to talk with the manager at the site I would be working at. Zoom interview that was scheduled for 1 hour and lasted less than that. Casual conversation covering expectations and several interview style questions.

    Customs Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ann Arbor, MI (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at XPO Logistics (Ann Arbor, MI (US)) in November 2020.

    Interview

    I did two phone interviews. Then met in person with my manager. The manager was very nice and the location seemed nice but the recruiter was horrible. It took two months to get a second phone interview. Then I got an offer and and it was all the normal stuff. I did not hear back from anyone for about 11 days after I accepted the offer, so I just decided to take another offer with a company that was better run and more organized. I finally got a call back and I was like ok I will give them one more chance. They gave me a new start date. I did not hear back from thrm until the night before my start date and by then I thought they were just playing games and I already took the other offer. I read about how numerous recruiters have ghosted people and all this bad stuff about their labor practices and it made me nervous. Maybe Ann Arbor is a great office to work out of. The manager was nice but the recruiter was a joke. I did not want to put my fate in the hands of a recruiter that takes 2 months to return an email. Something about this company just did not feel right. I went off of instinct but I could be wrong. I will say very unorganized for sure.

    Senior Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at XPO Logistics.

    Interview

    I had a really terrible recruiter for my interview experience. After coming on board, it was apparent that it was mainly the recruiter. However, I still think that XPO should develop a more robust interview and hiring process. It was clear to me, this process could be a focus for a positive candidate experience and also to hire good talent.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at XPO Logistics.

    Interview

    Spoke to the recruiter and then the hiring manager. Both were informational interviews to find out if I would be interested in working for the company and to explain more about the role structure. No questions were asked about my background or competencies. After hiring manager interview, was told I would move to next steps and interview with a peer. Never heard back from the recruiter or the HM again. Left a poor impression on how this company treats its job applicants and no care placed on overall candidate experience.
