Cost Analyst Interview

Cost Analyst
Bel-Ridge, MO

I applied online and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Graybar Electric in July 2010.

Interview Details – A phone screen and interview. Nothing terribly difficult, they'll ask basic questions about experience and some difficult things you've had to do. They look for people who question things, but be wary that you'll need to differentiate between what you can question. If you're too enterprising or a curious personality, then this would not be a good place for you too work.

Interview Question – Typical interview questions. The hardest part would be the excel test, assuming they still do it.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Non-existent as far as I know.

Inside Sales Representative Interview

Inside Sales Representative
Saint Louis, MO

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Graybar Electric in August 2011.

Interview Details – Business professional. Go through a series of "on-the-spot" questions to see how you handle thinking on your feet.

Interview Question – List these three topics in level of importance to you. 1 - Product Knowledge. 2 - Building Relationships. 3 - Customer Service   View Answer

Reason for Declining – I countered asking for a higher salary. Risky, but if they really want you it pays off.

Account Manager Interview

Account Manager
Indianapolis, IN

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Graybar Electric.

Interview Details – Applied online. Was contacted by Manager for a brief phone interview, was then asked to come in for a face to face with the same manager. Went in for the face to face with the hiring manager, interview lasted maybe 45 minutes. Seemed as if he had interviewed maybe 10 people throughout the day, back to back. Fairly laid back.

Interview Question – Nothing was difficult or unexpected. General questions about sales strategy, sales achievements, etc.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not much negotiation. Was a take it or leave it style job, with a set in stone salary, vacation time, etc.
