    Operations Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at 1-800-GOT-JUNK? in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for Operations Manager and they called within a few days. The telephone interview went well so I was asked to come in for a "real" interview. When I got there I was told that the position I had applied for, Operations Manager, was not available but they would consider me for a Truck Team Member at half the salary we had talked about for the Ops position. I figured why not, I need a job so I said OK. I was told to accept the position in writing via email. I did that the same day. A few days later they responded that all positions had been filled. This was the first time I was ever declined after accepting an offer. Something made me suspicious of them from the beginning. I don't think they value the truth. It's like when a salesman says, "Trust me," you know not to trust them.

    Interview Questions
    • They put me on the spot to give a short presentation based on a short video that I had been shown and what I knew about the company.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    After being told the original job I applied for was not available and being offered a lower-paying job and accepting that offer I was told the position was not available and thanks for my time. Nothing like this has ever happened to me in over 30 years in the job force. I wouldn't trust these guys.

    Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days - interviewed at 1-800-GOT-JUNK?.

    Interview Details

    One to two interviews with current management and franchise owner. Reference checks from previous employment. Ride along with an employee or management as well to see how you perform for one day. Also may include an online personality test. Overall fairly lax interview. May be in a warehouse or office of the junk office so don't be surprised if it isn't much or very fancy.

    Interview Questions
    • None really just the personality test may be challenging.   Answer Question

    Director of Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at 1-800-GOT-JUNK? in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by an in-house recruiter who invited me in for an interview with the VP of Sales after a brief phone interview. Met with the VP at their office which was basically a screening interview to see if I fit their basic requirements. This meeting was relatively brief and although the recruiter mentioned they may attend, they did not. I was only asked a few questions and it seems I did not fit the profile they were looking for. From what I understand, they have a very thorough hiring process and I only made it the first step
