    Trainee Territory Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ritchie Bros. (Miami, FL (US)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I could tell that I was speaking to an HR representative that had zero idea about the industries that Ritchie Brothers serves. Very frustrating for those that are knowledgeable. The personality test is the all seeing eye is considered holy scripture at Ritchie Brothers. Be careful not to spend too much time hung up on a single question because that too is recorded.

    Payroll Reviewer Interview

    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Ritchie Bros. (Lincoln, NE (US)) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I got a call about 3 weeks after submitting my resume on their online Careers page. The recruiter and I spoke for about 1 hour on our initial call and she asked some very well rounded questions, not just the normal general questions that you are asked over the phone. She thanked me for my time and said she would forward her notes onto the hiring manager and would be in touch if she was interested. I got a call later in the week to go in for a face to face interview and that went very well also.
