    District Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kalispell, MT
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Crescent Electric Supply (Kalispell, MT).

    Interview

    Applied online. 45 minute initial HR high level, followed by a face to face with District Manager. Districts were realigned midstream and the interviewing manager was demoted and the position was relocated. Very poor communication on their part considering the point of the process. Also, suprisingly low compensation package for the position title.

    Interview Questions

    • All general high level, non industry specific questions. Conflict management, etc..   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Crescent Electric Supply.

    Interview

    I had twenty years of experience and was applying for a lower job than what I was qualified for. I pretty much knew I would get the job. That is why there were no difficult questions during the interview process. The IQ test and the personality test where basic tests.

    I took what they offered because I needed a job.

    Manager Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Omaha, NE
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Crescent Electric Supply (Omaha, NE) in July 2011.

    Interview

    It took FOREVER!! I was told multiple times that I would have an answer and nothing would happen. I would call and they still claimed they were waiting on other factors. I was left in the dark through the whole thing. I get it if a company is too busy, but wait until a slow down to hire then. The HR lady has something to say about every answer you give during the interview as well.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you had to tell someone you work with something you knew they wouldn't want to hear, but did anyway. What was their response?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Too much time had went by and I needed to make a move. The way I was given the run-around made me second guess my desire to work for them as well. Other locations are probably different.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Crescent Electric Supply (Golden Valley, MN) in December 2010.

    Interview

    FIrst interview was at the end of October. Nearly 2 months later, no decision regarding the position I applied for has been made.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Crescent Electric Supply (DeKalb, IL) in November 2010.

    Interview

    There were two interviews for this position. The first was with the local manager and consisted mostly of resume review and personality probing (i.e, why did you leave this job?; what did you like best about that job?; what did you not like?...) The second interview was with the District Operations Manager. That was more probing. The questions were much more difficult to answer.

    Interview Questions

    • What can you bring to the table that the others applying for this position cannot?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Very smooth. They asked how much I wanted. I told them and three days later they offered the position.
