Inside Sales Interview

Inside Sales
Gainesville, FL

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Ferguson Enterprises in September 2011.

Difficult Interview

Sales/Management Trainee Interview

Sales/Management Trainee
Cleveland, OH

The process took 6 months - interviewed at Ferguson Enterprises in April 2011.

Interview Details – Process took a really long time. Had to remain persistent to hear back from them. Cleveland branch seems to be growing and doing well. The people really care about what they are doing and want to help the customer. Ferguson seems like a great place to start a career. They want to make sure that you are ok with starting out in the warehouse and then open to relocation when opportunities open up.

Interview Questions

Negotiation Details – Hard to negotiate in tough times. I would not recommend negotiating but I do not think it would really hurt either.

Sales Training Program Interview

Sales Training Program
Houston, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Ferguson Enterprises in March 2011.

Interview Details – The interview process starts with a 1 on 1 interview, followed by a telephone interview, and then a office visit to the location where they are looking to place you. Very friendly and relaxed environment. Work environment is basically a cubicle or open area with a desk. Job would not be very challenging and you would have a decent work life balance.

Reason for Declining – The 401k and other benefits were lacking. A mandatory 50 hour work week for $42,000 is not quite enough for my needs.
