    Inside Sales/Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at BlueLinx.

    Interview Details

    I was sold by management on a position. What I did once I took the position was not what I was sold. Complete misrepresentation. Alot of broken promises. That being said during the interview process they made it a very appealing opportunity. The problem once getting hired was the whole opportunity. There wasn't one.

    Negotiation Details
    I should have negotiated more but I was sold on something completely different that what came to fruition pay wise. Had those promises been met, it would have been different.

    Database Administrator Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at BlueLinx in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    Excessive nonsense about my contract work history and then they got seriously annoyed when I indicated using the interview to check them out rather than being deeply in love with them. Got the feeling they were doing me a favor by talking to me. When they got the feeling I was not a young puppy eager to do whatever they asked they quickly told me they would not be making an offer. Given the reviews I've seen of them here I am vastly relieved.

    IT Postion At Atlanta Headquarters Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at BlueLinx in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    This was a long interview process. 7 hours over several weeks and at least 10 different employees. Still have not heard from them either way. I would say that this company is a big time waster. Staff seemed very aggressive in the interview questioning (unnecessarily) and unskilled in interviewing. Several admitted to not reading my resume prior to meeting with me. No meeting with HR either... Seemed juvenile in the questioning as if they were doing me a favor rather than meeting on common ground.

    Buyer I Interview

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

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at BlueLinx in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    My brother in law who is a software programmer for the lumber department got me an interview with the VP of metals at the time. 1 phone interview then 1 face to face then gave me the offer and waited 2 weeks to start the job from initial contact.

    Work culture was laid back, office people super laid back and not very bright (just there for the paycheck for most departments and most individuals).

    Advice... Don't work here if you get a similar or even a lower compensation offer elsewhere. Only come here as a last resort for a job...
