    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Direct Supply (Milwaukee, WI).

    Interview

    Focus was more on who you were and how you relate to customers more than products or services. There was a round table discussion and then there were individual group meetings with several different partners. They give you the company tour and observe your questions and observations. Afterwards I was asked about different things that I observed.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Direct Supply (Milwaukee, WI).

    Interview

    Very long process. It took over four months of phone interviews, a marathon session with seven back-to-back, face-to-face interviews, and then waiting around for weeks with very little to go on. Made it difficult to decide whether to wait it out for a potential offer or move on to other opportunities.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Direct Supply (Milwaukee, WI) in May 2015.

    Interview

    As others mentioned, this is a lengthy interview process. Anticipate a few hours to meet with a minimum of 5 people. Everyone asked the same questions over and over again, which made it frustrating. They never left you feeling with a positive feeling. The second round was a job shadow and another interview with the Director of Customer Service.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Direct Supply.

    Interview

    Pretty straight forward process, phone interview followed by onsite, followed by an hour or so shadowing an employee. Had to take a wonderlic test, but nothing out of the ordinary. Everybody I meet with was very nice and straight forward on their job role, only negative thing was offer came in under my current salary which I disclosed in advance.

    Interview

    Single Behavioral and Case Interview. Case was conversational and free form, relying on the applicant to drive the conversation and the solution. Interviewer made no effort to steer case in a particular direction. Behavioral interview was composed of straight forward fit questions. Direct Supply is very concerned with finding someone with a perfect fit for them.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Direct Supply (Milwaukee, WI) in October 2014.

    Interview

    For those of you that thought this process was long and tedious, you probably were not a very good candidate for the job. I was offered the job at the interview before I left there facilities. After working there for a month I found that a lot of other people were contacted the day after their interviews. I only had one interview and most people I know working there did as well. If you apply for a job and can't answer their questions with ease your process WILL take longer. Don't apply for a job without doing your homework. They only hire people that they know will succeed. DS has done a great job hiring great talent. If you had a lengthy interview process and your frustrated by that then 1. It is because you suck at interviews and it took 7 interviews for them to make a decision on you or 2. They interviewed a lot of people for that position and you WON. Don't right a review that is negative about your interview process when you got the job, there is a reason your process took so long, and it could have been because of YOU.
