Branch Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Anonymous Interview Candidate
Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at College Works Painting.

Interview Details

The interview process was very solid, it challenged me all the way through the process. The District Manager was there to help me along the way of the interview process. After meeting with them, they helped me prep for my next interview where I met with the VP. The VP, Tom was very down to earth, and it was a rewarding experience to meet with him. They definitely did not sugar coat the program, they made sure that they let me know it was made for students that want to do more than the average internship. The best part was talking to alumni, having the opportunity to see where the alumni are today and how the program helped their career goals.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at College Works Painting in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I got a random call from someone with College Works Painting because my resume was on my university's resume database. The interview process included an information session, a formal meeting, and a final interview. The information session was an opportunity for me to get some information about the program to see if I was interested in it. I was interested in it and was invited to a formal meeting. The formal meeting was a reverse interview setting and I got to ask Austin O'Donnell any questions I wanted to about the program. He was very honest with me and answered everything directly. After the formal meeting I was given a phone list with past interns. I was able to call through the list and talked to interns who were successful, average, and below average. I liked that because I was able to see how people got their results. I talked to Austin again after I called through the phone list and he set me up for a final interview. The final interview was great to experience because I was challenged on my work history and my character which I feel like prepared me for future interviews.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult situation during the interview process occurred during the final interview. I had been very successful thus far in my life and Austin said he thought once I struggled at something I would quit. It wasn't really a question but I was able to respond to him.   View Answer

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Madison, WI
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at College Works Painting in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Comprehensive, four step process that begins with an "informational" meeting with a District Manager. Made up of three or four students, weeded down to one or two that are sent to the next step.
    The second step consists of a "reverse interview" with the VP. You ask him some questions, and then he asks you some questions, while explaining the internship more in depth than at the initial meeting.
    The third step is a short phone interview, professing three reasons why you would be the best man or woman for the job. Seemed like a basic check-up to make sure you were ready for the fourth step.
    The fourth and final step is a interview with the president of the company. This interview is very high-stakes, high-anxiety and high-pressure. They will grill you to make sure you will work hard, not give up in the face of adversity, etc.
