    Interview Details

    Applied online and got a call about a week later. Came in for an interview, was shown the warehouse and introduced to a few senior warehouse employees who explained that as long as I showed up for work on time I'd always have a job. Then was introduced to a senior manager who interviewed me and warned me that I wouldn't see my family much while working at Alro. I said when can I start, the rest is history.

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jackson, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jackson, MI
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Alro in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview process at Alro seemed thorough at first, but I was disappointed with the follow through after my first and second interview. My first interview was over the phone with two friendly employees, the interview was about a half an hr. My second interview took 4 hours long. It included a drug test, personality test, math test, IQ/Intelligence test, and meeting with about 8 different employees at the company. The most disappointing aspect of the interview process was that they never contacted me regarding the position after my interview.

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Alro.

    Interview Details

    Experienced 4 interviews in 4 months from GM, Regional Sales, VP Sales and EVP from Michigan Headquarters. Several assessment tests including a math test. Drug Test and MVA Drivers report. Was made to feel like you are the man until GM gets let go and new process is started. Seems like a lot of control comes from upper management and some arrogance on how their business is run. Don't hold on here over any other opportunities as they obviously let headquarters make the final decisions. Thorouoghly terrible experience. Michigan guys coming into the area trying to compete in the Philly area. Don't feel compfortable at all. Do not look for good career here.
