Operations Supervisor Interview

Operations Supervisor
Cedar Rapids, IA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at AmeriCold Logistics in September 2011.

Interview Details – I was hired as an LTO, within 3 months I was promoted to Operations Supervisor, wasn't much of a interview process as they alredy interviewed me before the posting went up for the position. Our hiring process is generic as it contains a predetermined set of quetions we ask each person. Also contains a math test. You are then sent for a background and drug test, if you pass your hired within 2 weeks.

Interview Question – I see that you are going to college, how do you plan on scheduling this around your work hours ?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Very one - sided, I have 14 years experience in this field and pursued other compensation ideas to make up for lack of pay and was told it was not fair to the other operation Supervisors.

FSM Interview

FSM
Atlanta, GA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at AmeriCold Logistics in December 2011.

Interview Details – It is a long process. Started with several questions by a recruiter. Next was a telephone interview which was several more questions. Then a face to face with my current supervisor. More questions and a facility tour. Then had a face to face with a VP at corporate. Drug test / Back ground check, wait a couple more weeks then finally start.

Interview Question – Can't really think of any. All questions pertained to the position, none were very difficult, they are just looking for a general overview of your back ground and how you would fit in.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was not one. Had to take the job for less than it was advertised for. Basically it was take it or leave it.

Account Representative Interview

Account Representative
Atlanta, GA

The process took a day - interviewed at AmeriCold Logistics in January 2009.

Interview Details – I actually applied and interviewed for this job in 2005-2006. Interview process was easy. The HR person they had at the time was very nice and we spent most of the time talking about personal and family stuff. So of course we connected and she wanted me to interview with the VP(someone different at that time) and a manager. I aced that and the very next day, I was contacted and offered a position.

Interview Question – I absolutely do not remember any questions from this interview...this was 5 years ago.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I didn't need to negotiate...the salary at the time was satisfactory. I am quite sure they would not pay what they paid me at that time if they were hiring for this same position now.
