    Sales Management Trainee Interview

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Ferguson Enterprises in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Started with online application via their website. Then, they send you a link to record answers to some questions. After that, there was a phone interview. Finally, a visit to the site to discuss program and get a tour of the facilities.

    Overall, the interview process was fine. A little drawn out, in my opinion, but this position is not necessarily a high priority for them. I went through the entire process and then they told me they were not hiring the position at this time. Seems like a waste of time for everyone, but good to get a little interview experience.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Ferguson Enterprises in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I obtained the interview by visiting a location, who referred me to the company website to apply. A recruiter contacted me afterward for a phone interview, which led to an in-person interview at the location. Pre-offer, a drug screen and personality test were given. They were very open and honest through the process, and made me feel quite comfortable through the process.

    I found out about them through my school's career fair. I sent in my application, and was contacted for a video interview a few days later.

    The process took 6 months - interviewed at Ferguson Enterprises in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Process took a really long time. Had to remain persistent to hear back from them. Cleveland branch seems to be growing and doing well. The people really care about what they are doing and want to help the customer. Ferguson seems like a great place to start a career. They want to make sure that you are ok with starting out in the warehouse and then open to relocation when opportunities open up.

    Hard to negotiate in tough times. I would not recommend negotiating but I do not think it would really hurt either.

    The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Ferguson Enterprises in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    I had 2 phone interviews in a span of 4 days where they asked basic behavioral questions (what are your goals?, Why did you choose to go to XYZ University?, Tell me about I time where you went over and above to help a customer, etc.) I received the offer exactly 6 weeks from the date of the first interview. The process was a little too drawn out.

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Ferguson Enterprises.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with two different HR reps. Both were very nice, and asked pretty basic questions. I asked what the next step of the interview process was and she replied with the common, "we'll contact you in about 1-2 weeks." Three weeks later I got a call saying they would like a third interview and they were scheduling a time with the Houston office. In my opinion it was a very drawn out interview process.
