Branch Manager Interview

Branch Manager

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PoolCorp.

Interview Details – I was recruited at a job fair in Orlando, FL. the recruiter took my information and about a week later I got a call back. first was a phone interview. pretty much just telling me about the position and what working for PoolCorp entailed. Willing to relocate is a requirement for the MIT fast track program. After that round, about three weeks later I went in for a formal interview with a Regional Manager in the Orlando area. after about a week, HR called and told me I got the job. two weeks later I was on a plane to Dallas, TX for training.

Interview Question – no one is trying to fool you in their interview. softball questions basically. they are trying to gage your communication skills and your personality. this company's biggest asset is its employees. they do not want someone who will be a cancer.   Answer Question
