    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at AmerisourceBergen.

    Interview Details

    Applied on- line on their site. In a day or two got a phone call that i did not answer, so they left a voice message and an e-mail that they want to do a phone interview with me. Si I scheduled one. The phone interview was 100% typical HR thing. First they introduce the company briefly and then ask some typical questions - can u work in a team?, give an example u handled frustrated customer?, How do u treat problematic and troublesome colleagues?, They pass through your previous employers and ask about your responsibilities there?, Why do you want to leave your current job and why did u choose their company?, What do u think will be your contribution to the company once u enter it? and etc.
    After that you have to wait a day or two so if u passed u get appointment for another onsite interview with the supervisor in charge there.
    The interview on site is not much different than the one on the phone - it is more responsibilities related as they explain to u what u are supposed to do, I got not HR questions what so ever, just a tiny winy discussion on my current employer. My interview ended pretty quickly the moment salary was mentioned - 11.20 for regular shift, 11.80 for night shift. That wage can not offset my current salary and as I was told it is non negotiable so I said I am not interested. Out of courtesy we kept on our discussion for a couple of minutes - benefits for the company are really good - medical, dental 401 K plan - really better than my current ones, u get 20 vacation days but there is a catch every time you are sick or need personal day off it is taken from them, they offer some kind of incentive that if u save the company 2 hours of work it will pay u one of those hours extra, but as the time to pick up order is like 8 seconds on an item it is almost impossible to make real money out of it, the company is union based so u must calculate union payment on every check - i do not know how much that is, there is 30 minutes break, 90 days probation period. They seemed to me to be in a desperate need of employees which is not surprising considering that the pay is really low in comparison of their demands. I read from glassdoor that Amerisorce employees get plenty of overtime and that was the main reason for me to apply as i want to switch my two jobs for one but i was told during the interview that there will be limited overtime, so it is either things changed, I was not told the truth during the interview or the reviews are wrong. My personal advice is if u want to do such a job and are ready to be treated like a working dog u better go to Kroger warehouse where the pay at least starts from 13.50 otherwise it sucks as well but u can swallow that if u really need money.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at AmerisourceBergen.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and I would like to say the process is over, but they still have not given a final determination.

    After I applied online, I received an email for an interview with HR. This was painless we reviewed my resume and she evaluated me for the level of position I was applying for. She told me in the interview I was to be advanced to next level.

    A week later I received an email telling me that a Sr. Manager would like to speak with me the next morning. [Okay, I was very interested in the position, but really if someone is a professional in the field do they really call at the end of the day and expect a candidate to take a call the next morning?]
    That aside I quickly rearranged my AM schedule at work and took the call.

    This meeting delved more into what I could offer the company, why I was applying and why I wanted to leave my current employer. At the end of the call she said she would like to move me to a panel interview.

    Two weeks later, I finally received an invite for a 2 part panel interview. They wanted to have the panel interview the next day! I declined, as I was out of town on business. We set the interview for the day I came back. This was to be a 4 person panel interview, but only 2 were available. I went to the interview, more of the same questions -- how would you handle people, how do you handle stress.

    I was then moved on to interview with the Hiring Manager. This interview was short with the topic of are you a fit for us. She said I was more than qualified and asked if the team size and responsibilities were to my liking. I said yes, She said they would get back to me on the next day, Tuesday, with their decision.

    On Wednesday, I got an email stating that the HR person was not able to attend the 4 person panel interview and would like to interview me. I was asked to pick times that I was available that week. I gave times for Wed, Th and Fri. All of my available times were declined; we settled on Tuesday of the next week.

    We met and I answered more of the same questions. Are you a fit, how would you handle a difficult team member. I asked when I would hear back and HR said by the end of the week.

    Well three weeks later still no response. I have emailed the recruiter.
    She apologized for not getting back with me and set up a meet date for feedback. That day and time came and went. I understand I do not have the job, but after 5 interviews and me rearranging my schedule they should at least send a 'dear thanks but no thanks letter.' Very disappointing.
    Be warned that if you apply your time and effort will not be respected.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at AmerisourceBergen.

    Interview Details

    Applied Online. Received a call from HR within a couple of days. Phone screen setup with hiring manager. I was told on the phone that the wrong job description had been posted. I found that to be very strange. 2 weeks later, I was brought in for what I thought would be a face to face interview. I met the manager and was brought into an office. I was told to fill out a word document with skill assessment questions, an Excel spreadsheet and create a Power Point presentation. No interaction with the hiring manager. No questions. Nothing except to fill out the document. I was not given enough time to complete due to being sent to the wrong building initially and having to wait for the hiring manager another 10 minutes. I felt I was nothing more than a check box in the process. I felt what a waste of time.d

    Reasons for Declining

    I felt I was a cog more than a person to this company. I also felt that the hiring manager wanted me to do all the work and take all of the credit. Kept on telling me about his vision and how I was supposed to figure it all out.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted the day after I applied online via phone. We scheduled a date and time for my phone screen with a Sr. Recruiter. The day and time came and went. I followed up with the Recruitment Coordinator and she said she would follow up with the Sr. Recruiter. I never heard back. I thought it was very unprofessional and showed they do not care about their candidates.
