    All out- of-state. All over the phone. Manager lied about the entire job description. One phone call interview with the job offer included. One call from me to accept. Managet should be more honest during this process.

    OUTSIDE SALES Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Declined Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at ABC Supply Co..

    Interview

    I was approached by a manager as I am getting well known in the industry. Had a few face to face meetings. Didnt seem to go anywhere then Iwas approached by another branch. Questions were standard, but yet trying to get information on company and contractors that I'm with. What I found to be totally unethical is wanting my W2's. Really? If you see a value in something or someone, its not in your best intetest to demean...make an offer solely on what you believe they are worth. If you want to be viewed as a "class act company" You definitely were NOT this time.

    Reasons for Declining

    Offer was less than average. Why leave current position that pays more?

    was told one salary but it was far lower than was told;also told that there was good commissions; no contract or employment or salary agreement. Tried to get something in writing ;but they lied and said that they didn't have a contract when they turned out to have one;a complete deception of employment.This was clearly against the law.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ABC Supply Co. (Indianapolis, IN) in June 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online by resume and was contacted maybe a week later for an interview. The interview was very professional and the interviewer was very down to earth, direct, and let me know exactly what he was looking for. After I left the interview which lasted over an hour, I was contacted later on the same day and asked to come in for a second interview and speak with the manager and warehouse manager. The second interview went well and before I left they walked me through the warehouse, then asked me to take a urine screen. A week later I received a call with an offer.

    Marketing Executive Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 12+ monthsinterviewed at ABC Supply Co. (Beloit, WI) in March 2013.

    Interview

    The company has no set hiring process down. They have no consistency or etiquette to how they hire employees. Not only did I not hear back from the initial interview until 4 weeks later, they prolonged the interview process for over a year. After I went to the last interview, I had to reach out to the Director to receive a response. With saying that, I reached out to the director after seeing the job post again on 'job seeker' websites. The interview process was horrible and so was their customer service. Not only did I have a bad impression but I now have a skewed message about their core values and being a "flat" organization.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at ABC Supply Co. (Harrisburg, PA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I had three interviews. The first interview was with a woman from HR and was very easy going. We basically just talked and got to know eachother and she told me about the company and the position. My second interview was a group interview/information session followed by one on one interview with a district manager. This was a short interview with behavioral type questions. My third interview was with the Vice President of the N.E. region of ABC. This interview was about a half hour and many behavioral questions were asked. However, I was also asked about myself.

    They told me I would be making $17 an hour, and said I would work atleast 50 hours a week amassing a minimum of $48000. I did not negotiate as I was pleased. I have rarely gotten more than 40 hours a week which amount to about $35000 a year.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at ABC Supply Co. (Maple Plain, MN) in April 2009.

    Interview

    They will have you fill out an application. Then you will have a phone call to come in. You may have to fill out yet another application then an interview.This is the critical time to ask for the amount you want to be paid because after this you may not receive a raise for quite awhile. And when you do its about .25 cents a year folks.

    Negotiation

    Yes I was. The negotiation left me wondering if they were going to hire me. I got hired during a storm year so they really needed someone.
