Getting an Interview
Purchasing Manager Interview (Negative Experience)
I applied online and interviewed at Factory Motor Parts.
Interview Details – Even though I have many years of experience and applied many times, I was rejected each time without even a phone screen. Opinion: They are looking for inexperienced (read: Youthful) people that they don't need to pay too much to.
Interview Question – I bet that I applied at least six times for various supply chain positions and was never phone screened, not even once - very strange. b Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
Warehouse Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Factory Motor Parts.
Interview Details – IF, and I mean IF, they decide NOT to go through a temp agency as they almost exclusively do now, the interview process is simple. IF they're interviewing you then you pretty much have the job as long as you are polite and speak proper English. There will be a background check-they do NOT hire people with felonies on their record. Hence the temp agency. Despite whatever equal opportunities they claim. Then you will go for a drug test. That part is obvious. Dont do illegal drugs and you're fine. Once all the results come back then you're in! Then you start interviewing yourself-asking why did I apply here? There's no room for growth unless the 1 or 2 guys above you is firwd/quits or tragedy happens. So you're pretty much there to get warehouse experience/ forklift "training" and try to apply somewhere else. Rinse. Repeat.
Interview Question – Why do you want to work with FMP? View Answer
Negotiation Details – When they discuss pay-you better hope you have a degree or lots of previous experience cause then you MIGHT be able to negotiate a higher starting rate. Which is highly recommended because there are NO RAISES! and haven't been in atleast 4 years. FMP lost their biggest money making Delco stock orders so money is out of the question. They didnt have $ even when they had all that business-certainly dont have it now and wont for a long time because someone higher up-screwed up royally losing that business with no backup plan in site. So my advice, ask for as mich as possible in the beginning cause it'll be a great while till you see anymore...
