    Operations/Sales Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Hajoca Corporation (Atlanta, GA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process took about a month. Once I received the initial response to my application, I was invited to take a couple of short tests. A week later a phone interview followed. After completing those, about 2 weeks later the actual hiring manger called. Expect the process to take some time if you are applying for a management position. They are really want to make sure that you are a good fit both for the position and the company.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Hajoca Corporation.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an existing Profit Center Manager about a mid-level job at his branch. Upon interviewing me (which was considered my Profit Center interview, where I took wonderlic), he though I'd be more fit for the management training program lead me to speak with their corporate recruiter over the phone, which was more of a pre-screening. For this recruited interview, I recommend being very positive, well spoken and speak with high ambition. Next, I was sent a series of 3 different aptitude & psychological tests to take online (not wonderlic). Apparently you are only contacted further if you pass these, which I did. I then had a 1-hour interview with their corporate physiologist. This was easy, but you've got to remember that she was looking between the lines of your responses, while looking at the results of your psychological test results on her end. If you keep advancing past all that, the next step is to interview with the regional managers and division managers. This was the hardest and more important interview. 3 one-hour sessions back to back. They are all very likable and intelligent. They are looking to hire people they see themselves in, so be just as personable and responsive as they are. Somewhere in this step, I must have tripped up and was not offered the job. Front day one, this felt like an amazing organization to be a part of. Very professional despite the blue-collar industry. Their hospitality at the stores and the regional office is second to none. I honestly do wish I was offered the opportunity to join the team. My only complaints are: 1) The process took FOREVER! From initial contact to final phone call was 2.5 months! I believe they loose quality candidates sometimes due to their process being too long. 2) Their standards are high, almost to a fault. they complain over the phone and in person that they can't find good people and it is holding THEM back, then they have one like me (and the others I interviewed with a the regional office that day) sitting right in front of them, qualified to the moon and they don't take us. It's hard to argue that they lower the standards, since their retention is so great, but you either NEED to lower those standards a tiny bit, or stop telling candidates that you are desperate for talent like that. It sends the wrong message. 3) It appears the application process is a one-and-done situation. If you don't get an offer, then you won't get another chance to apply for a different job. Along those same lines, if you get a lower job, you likely won't ever get promoted to Profit Center Manager, since they hire those most of those people externally through the training program. I'd recommend promoting from within a little more.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Hajoca Corporation (Houston, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Submit Resume for Review, then a phone interview, Online Testing, 2nd Phone interview. If you make it past all this then you are offered an opportunity to interview in person. The online testing was 3 separate online tests, they didn't take that long to complete due to the fact that they were timed, but they were intense. The on-site interview was a series of interviews with 3 different directors.

    Interview Questions

    • Much of the interview centered on Leadership and Financial Analysis. These questions were presented in all aspects of the interview process. Also, asked about personal strengths and weaknesses and your leadership style.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hajoca Corporation.

    Interview

    Spoke with someone in HR. Took 3 tests for company. Stated after I completed the tests that they would be following up with candidates who made the next step. No call, and no response to email asking about status. Understand I was not selected for next step but after the time and effort put in to the process you would think HR would have the humility to respond that they were moving on without me...

    Interview

    This phone interview was lengthy. The interviewer was nice and went into great detail about the job. Afterwards, the job seems better after hearing him describe it. The questions were good and it seemed like a real conversation, not just one person reading a list of questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hajoca Corporation.

    Interview

    Initial contact was an invite to take the Wonderlic test. I passed that I am assuming because a recruiter contacted me for an interview. During the interview he asked a question about my prior work experience. Once he figured out I was a non-traditional bachelor's degree recipient (I went back to school after a layoff and I'm not in my twenties), the entire tone of the interview changed. He explained that they only pick 50 candidates a year and that they are not able to share the results of the Wonderlic with you. He also alluded to the fact that my school wasn't a big name. He tried to be nice and send me an "update" email to let me know that he selected the "perfect candidate" who wasn't me.

    • The Wonderlic was a common sense test for me. He asked typical interview questions.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hajoca Corporation.

    Interview

    1st. Wunderlic Test which was easy. Then about a 45 minute phone interview which went very well. So well in fact that the interviewer was talking about speeding up the process of the training program. Then they mail you a bunch of personality profile tests. The strange thing is, during the interview they talk about technology, yet a major portion of the initial process is done through Fed-ex overnight. Strange, considering there are a variety of web-based tests out there. Not to mention the waste of money with Fed-ex. I didn't make it past the tests. I found it very strange that the company puts so much weight on the personality tests. Stellar interview, crushed the Wunderlic, Exceptional work history, impeccable references, high GPA...didn't matter.

    Interview Questions

    • The profile test said you are xxxxxx, and the profile test is always 100%, so you must have lied.   1 Answer
