When looking to apply at C.H. Robinson, I would advise first to have professional dress attire. Although the company is relaxed in terms of dress once hired, looking the part of a traditional sales person is key. Secondly, logistics is a very competitive industry and C.H. Robinson is the largest 3PL in the United States currently. That being said, they are constantly looking to defend and increase their market share. They expect new hires to be eager to learn, aggressive, and have “thick skin” as you will have difficult conversations daily. It is a fast pace environment and to be successful, you have to study and educate yourself on the industry outside of the normal 40 hour work week.

Like with most sales roles you need to be a self starter and a go getter. There is a solid “team” mentality at C.H. Robinson as well as an entreprenuerial spirit. Quick thinking/attention are important day to day operational skills that will serve you well.
