    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Ace Hardware in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, was contacted a couple of weeks later by the store manager. Interviewed with Store Manager and HR Representative. Asked standard interview questions about what I do, what I am going to school for, where I live, reliable transportation, how I have handled customers in the past, etc.
    A week after the initial interview, received an email asking to complete an online customer service course, which was very easy, but took almost an hour to complete. After completion of the online course, called store manager back who set up a second interview with himself and the Regional/District Manager.

    Pretty straight forward phone interview where a woman asked about my resume and asked about how my skills would work with the job. She was very friendly during the interview and told me that she would let me know about a potential in-person interview within a week. I got an email a couple days later saying that she regretted to say they were going forward with different candidates although I was very qualified

    Program Manager of Consumer Insights Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oak Brook, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Oak Brook, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Ace Hardware in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and within a couple of weeks I had an interview set up with HR. After that interview, I was asked to come in for an in-person interview with the hiring manager. When I arrived, HR met with me first, asked me a couple of questions and even told me she does this to help calm any nerves that a candidate might have before they actually meet with the hiring manager. She then shared some background about the hiring manager which might be useful for the interview. Then I met with the hiring manager and we talked for around 1.5 hours (much longer than I had expected, which led me to believe that the interview went very well). I will say that the hiring manager actually talked more than I did ... which later on I feel was a detriment for me. I was told this job was only set up for two interviews (unlike a prior 3-interview process for a different position). After a bit, I checked back in with HR and was told they were pursuing a different candidate.

    I really loved the corporate culture that I experienced during this interview process. I was made to feel welcome and not just 'another candidate'. I would reapply for an open position I'm qualified for in a heart beat.
