Part-Time Sales Support Interview

Part-Time Sales Support

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Fastenal.

Interview Details – First off just for part time at Fastenal, you have to take an online assessment. It isnt that hard, but you only get 2 minutes to answer each question, and they take almost the whole 2 minutes. It is just a lot of thinking and comparing. If you pass that, then your results and resume get sent to the district manager. He or she can then decide whether they call you in for an interview.
-The first interview is with the district manager. Basically ask you the typical questions like what do you know about Fastenal, why did you chose Fastenal and so on and so forth
-Then I met with the district manager for another district (why? I dont know? I wasnt going to be working in his district) I had to drive 45 mins to meet with him for literally 10 mins just for him to ask me THE EXACT same questions as the other DM did.
-The third part was meeting with the stores Manager at the store with whom they were hiring. He asked the same questions as the other 2 and then told me they would get back to me. I believe I heard back within a week.

Part-Time Sales Support Interview

Part-Time Sales Support
Parsippany, NJ

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Fastenal in May 2011.

Interview Details – The interview was as basic as possible; the behavioral questions such as "tell me about yourself, why do you want to work here?, why should we hire you?" - those questions were ones people seeking employment should prepare for. A simple preparation for addressing these types of questions would make any interviewee a stand out candidate.

Interview Question – "Can you think of a time where you had an issue with a colleague and how the matter was resolved?"   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There wasn't much to negotiate; the pay was good and the hours were balanced to meet my school schedule.
