    Branch Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    The process took 4 months - interviewed at Labor Ready in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    After submitting my resume I had a phone interview with the District Manager (DM). Next was a call from HR, where I took an over the phone aptitude test. Then I had a face to face meeting with the DM, followed by phone interviews with an Area Sales Manager and then the Area Vice President. Finally I met the DM again to go out in the field and do presentations. I then had a full background check run and was finally offered the job.

    Branch Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Labor Ready in July 2008.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview, followed by face to face with hiring manager (area manager)...then interview with co-worker (branch manager from another branch). Drug test, credit check, background check, personality profile.

    The interview was laid back for me. They really wanted to see your personality and what you bring to the table.

    Interview Questions
    • What would you do if someone urinated on the branch floor?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Slightly...there is a base salary range for everyone coming into that role depending on location. I obtained the higher base and the other benefits were great so I didn't really have to negotiate anything that I wasn't happy with.

    • I did not find any of the questions difficult but I was surprised when the bonus structure was explained and didn't add up.   View Answer
    Reasons for Declining

    Management would not keep their word, they would tell you what you wanted to hear then your job turned into 24/7 on call positions. Always getting yelled at for others mistakes and written up when upper management got a call.
