I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Graybar Electric in May 2012.
Interview Details – Process was easy, but I had to chase down the Director to get him to return my calls. Interviewing was easy, and the on boarding was smooth. Hiring process didn't take long either. I was surprised how quickly it went once it started.
Interview Question – There were no real difficult questions asked. Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Graybar Electric in December 2011.
Interview Details – Upon being contacted by a Graybar HR rep through indeed.com, I was impressed with how fast results were accumulating. It took less than a week and one phone interview to make it to stage 2 which involved a sales assessment & background check. After passing both tests, a face-to-face interview took place between myself, the Branch Manager, and a District Sales Manager who were both extremely friendly. We discussed initiatives, scope of the market, expectations for 2012, and the life of an outside sales representative leaving the mood in high spirits. It seemed a fruitful partnership was definitely coming together until the second interview with the branch manager where about half-way through I was told "Just remember, don't screw with me," which I felt was very unprofessional. Unfortunately this set the tone of who would ultimately be my boss and quickly decided not to pursue anything further with Graybar.
Reason for Declining – The pay was low compared to other sales jobs and was not thrilled with the direction of the company after number crunching their 2010 financial statement.
The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Graybar Electric in July 2009.
Interview Details – Met with the hiring manager first. Then a second meeting was set up with the hiring manager's boss. Whole process took about a month. Drug test and background check. I hear they may have added a IQ/Intelligence Test.
