    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Cardinal Health.

    Interview

    The Interview process was very basic. It involved two thirty minute back to back interviews that was behavior based. The interviews had a basic template to go off and they stuck to it. They were very friendly and open to questions. It was a good time.

    Interview

    One phone interview and then one face to face. Offer made next day. Very quick process. Less than a week. The HR person on the phone was very nice and helped me prepare for the face to face interview. Then the face to face was with two people, who were both very nice. It was very straight forward and professional but not super overwhelming.

    Interview Questions

    • Just depends on who you interview with and what the role is. My experience was very simple.   Answer Question

    One day - done.

    Interview

    Face to face interview with vp level and above. Presentation of supply chain assessments. Relatively easy process. Process took a couple weeks in length. Typically Hugh performing reps get the job so upper management knows the individual well going into the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a time in which you had to deal with ambiguity. How did you handle it and why did you handle it that way?   Answer Question

    Warehouse Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kansas City, MO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Cardinal Health (Kansas City, MO).

    Interview

    After two months and four interviews, they decided to go with an internal candidate even after stating that if they had internal candidates worthy of the job they wouldn't have opened it up for outside applicants. Very frustrating to say the least. Since I was an out-of-town applicant, my process involved two phone interviews with recruiters (seemingly the same interview), a conference call interview with three managers at the Kansas City site, and then another phone interview with the regional HR director. All interviews, according to them, went very well and I was 1 of 3 prospects left.

    Interview Questions

    • During my 3rd interview I was asked behavioral interview questions which I really don't like. They aren't difficult if you prepare.   Answer Question

    Inside Sales Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Cardinal Health.

    Interview

    Cardinal Health has an extensive hiring process. Recruiter (internal) will contact and do a brief phone interview. They will refer candidates to hiring manager that will usually result in 3-4 candidates brought in for initial interviews. After initial interviews, there are usually interviews with several team members. Although their input is considered, your real decision maker is the hiring manager. I've seen a hiring manager chose a candidate when all others involved suggested another candidate be hired.

    Interview Questions

    • Depends on the manager. Expect some kind of off the wall question at some point though....just to see how you think on your feet.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They will have their salary range and almost always have plenty of room to go up......for the right candidate. If you feel they REALLY want you and NEED you.....YOU.....then definitely counter for more. For my first/second level supervisor/manager, I'd counter for $3-$5k more.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Cardinal Health.

    Interview

    The interview process of very simple. They asked questions very specific to the job requirements. If you read the requirements, you should be able to answer the questions asked. Once I finished the interview, I received a call the same from the staffing agency to come in and finish the paperwork to begin work on the following Wednesday.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Cardinal Health.

    Interview

    Pretty basic process. Screening now for females and periodically minorities. Don't count on this helping as this really only fulfills an EOE requirement. These guys are not the brightest bunch of people in HR and most of their hiring managers have very little experience in interview tactics and screening.

    Interview Questions

    • Fairly typical questions, nothing out of the ordinary.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Simple. Made counter, and they had to regroup. Benefits and compensation not really what I would call stellar.
