I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at MSC Industrial Direct in August 2009.
Interview Details – The company is very old school and is expanding into the west coast they sell MRO products. They have been in the Seattle area for about 5 years and have very little market share. They are a siloed company with the GSA sales reps reporting to the branch managers and not the GSA national account sales manager. The interview with the HR lady went well and she was very professional. Next I meet with the GSA National account manager for about an hour and 30 minutes. He was professional and asked some good questions. They interviewed 3 people for the position and did not move on with any of them. They are a company that needs to hire a lot of good sales people because their competition is eating their lunch. They did not give any reasons for not moving on with me and just sent me a letter in the mail.
