Account Executive Interview

Account Executive

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed 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.
