    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Alro (Tonawanda, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Easy interview. Office was very cold. I felt more so like I was interviewing them, then they were interviewing me. Make sure you have a lot of time because they make you take a math test, logic test, drug test, and alcohol test. They do not offer room for negotiating salary.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Alro (Clare, MI) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Slide of hand . They have you apply and interview for one thing and put you where needed. You meet the management queen of deciet and her minions. You get a tour of the growing facility and be promised potential opportunities that will have you on the hook. But speak to someone "working" that wears a blue uniform. They will tell you the truth.....most of the time. If you are an outdoorsmen\woman and are willing to be unfaithful in your relationship. You could go far at this location!

    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

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Alro (Jackson, MI) in November 2010.

    Interview

    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.

    • The question was regarding what I would do in a certain political decision.   1 Answer

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.
