Account Executive Interview

Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at MSC Industrial Direct.

Interview Details

Recruiter call, phone interview, face to face interview with Branch Manager, phone interview with Market Manager. Background and credit rating check, but no drug test. They want metal working experience when they can get it - those with it will be ranked as more valuable. New trend os to hire younger people with less experience and low ball on salary with a Ford Focus. Experience is not valued. They are now trying to be like Fastenal, not MSC.

Negotiation Details
Messy, they tried lowballing on salary. Ask for what you want or you won't get much.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at MSC Industrial Direct in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Unrealistic picture of role as account executive. I was very excited when I interviewed for my position unfortunately the picture presented was not an accurate picture of reality. The interview and hiring process are similar to other companies I have worked for in the past.
