    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – 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.

    Senior Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Buyer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood, CO
    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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 Questions
    • The questions were very standard "tell me about yourself" questions.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Arrow Electronics in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interview and hiring process went very smoothly and it was only a single interview. I'm guessing it was because they thought I was a great match and was just going through the formal process. I also think they were rushed because they had a deadline date to meet and they were aware of the competing offer on the table.

    Interview Questions
    • There were really nothing difficult nor unexpected that stands out.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Offer is negotiable if you feel you have a strong hand and they want you.

    Entry Level Staff Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Arrow Electronics in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    Was interviewed by 5 different people all at different times. The interview started with the Director of the position I applied for and worked down to lower level employees. The Director interview was very difficult because he was asking specific accounting questions and wanting specific answers and I was apparently answering them in a way that did not suffice. After that, all the other interviewers asked very basic style questions and they all gave job specific information. Interview took about 2 hours and after the interview with the Director I had already assumed that I would not receive an offer.
