Leadership Development Program Associate Interview

Leadership Development Program Associate

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Consolidated Graphics in May 2011.

Interview Details – I was recruited and interviewed at a college job fair, screened for relocation on a 1:1 phone interview, and completed a site visit for a panel interview. I was interviewed mostly by other LDP associates, and spent only 10 minutes with members of management. They read questions off a sheet, and they are mostly all standard behavioral questions.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you had to work with people that are different from you.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation--standard base salary across the board.

Leadership Development Program Interview

Leadership Development Program

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Consolidated Graphics in February 2013.

Interview Details – I met current 'associates' at my schools career fair and was invited to interview. There were several interviews with salesmen and current employees in the leadership development program. The sales staff seemed unintelligent and full of BS and the associates there seemed very unenthusiastic. The questions were easy and most employees just asked me to ask them questions. How unprofessional.

Reason for Declining – Facility seemed to be trash, and the employees seemed to dislike their job.

Leadership Development Program Associate Interview

Streamwood, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Consolidated Graphics.

Interview Details – I first met them at a career fair at my school. Very friendly and encouraging. Then I had a one on one interview. Immediately they told me that I would be receiving an email to schedule an onsite interview. I met with several different people at the onsite interview. Going into it I was concerned because of the reviews online. Also, my degree in school was everything I would be taught while there. Meaning I didn't know if I wanted to "relearn" everything when I just went to school for that. They told me I would fly through it and I was offered a position early on during the day of the onsite interview. 6 or so mini interviews later (with different people) I was finished. Yes they answered all of my questions, but they did stress that this position is for someone willing to relocate. They also told me that the pay is not great, after receiving the offer details, it wasn't that great, but not awful. The people there are friendly, however, I am not so sure that the program is 100% suitable for a lot of people. Many people do quit, it's a different type of job. Great company, great people, but iffy program.

Reason for Declining – At this point in my life, relocation isn't an option.
