    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at S.P. Richards in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    I have worked with this company for quite awhile doing the multiple duties that the warehouse has. When the previous supervisor was fired, the company started teaching me the a lot of the duties of the supervisor position. I worked my butt off and learned a lot of new stuff just to be let down by the GM saying "the outside competition is tough". Come to find out they brought in a new person from the outside. I feel like i was a horse with a carrot dangling in front of me. The management here has always talked about the great oppurtunities in the company, and yet they would rather bring someone else in with no experience in the company or years of hard work put in. It is very frustrating and i don't think the upper management know what these kind of decisions make the employees think of them.

    • The GM asked several unrelated questions off the topic about my schooling, and then went on in detail how he had to move so the GM at the warehouse he used to work at could keep himself planted where he was.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at S.P. Richards in April 2008.

    Interview Details

    I first met with a recruiter at the University's career fair. I then set up an interview for the following day. The interview was a normal one on one interview with mostly routine interview questions. After the one on one interview, you complete an assessment. If you posses certain traits common to their top performing employees they will consider you. This particular position was a two year program.

    Interview Details

    After applying on-line, I received a phone call from the hiring manager to set up an in person interview. I interviewed with the Supply Chain Manager and the Purchasing Manager. Both were very likeable and easy to talk to. The interviews lasted about 30 min. each and they were mostly behavioral type interview questions.
