Human Resources Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at Arrow Electronics.

Interview Details – It took some time to get an interview scheduled. However, the interview process was very positive with the interviewers acting very friendly. A lot on my background and previous experience was discussed as well as my future goals. Overall, the interview was more conversational and not in a direct question-answer form.

Interview Question – Can you tell me a time where you have dealt with conflict with a colleague?   Answer Question

Buyer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Englewood, CO

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Arrow Electronics in May 2012.

Interview Details – I received an email from the recruiter within days of submitting my resume. I interviewed with a supervisor the next week. Got a call back the next day for a 2nd interview. The 2nd interview was with the same supervisor and his manager. The manager came in late and proceeded to tell me how awful the position was. He wouldn't answer direct questions and spent a considerable time just staring at my resume. I was told I would hear something within a week. 4 weeks later I got the generic rejection email. Beginning with the 2nd interview, the feeling was very unprofessional. The office environment was a maze of cubicles and very drab though the lady at the front desk made you feel welcome.

Interview Question – The questions were very standard "tell me about yourself" questions.   Answer Question

Difficult Interview

Senior Systems Engineer Interview

Senior Systems Engineer
Englewood, CO

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Arrow Electronics in May 2012.

Interview Details – Applied for job online and received call back the same day from the recruiter. I had every skill they were looking for so he called me back within the hour to schedule a 1:1 with the hiring manager the next day.

Hiring Manager was nice and interview went excellent. We discussed salary/benefits/etc. Half way through the interview he brought out his calendar and asked when I could come in for a tech interview with the team. He wanted me to come in the following day but the main technical person was out for the rest of the week so scheduled it for the following Monday (this was a Tuesday).

Came in the following Monday and felt like I aced the technical piece and was a great fit personality wise. Was told they had some more interviews scheduled and that I'd hear back by Friday.

Never heard back or get an email as to what happened.

Interview Question – What are the differences between XenApp 5 and XA5 SP1 (this was representative of the tedious questions that were asked)   Answer Question

Purchasing Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Solon, OH

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Arrow Electronics in September 2010.

Interview Details – I was interviewed by 4 people in 1 day. Interviewers asked some difficult questions and took notes. HR seems to have a lot to do with the managers getting applications and are moderately involved in the hiring process. They will run background, education and drug testing.
