Supervisor Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Indianapolis, IN

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.

I applied through college or university and 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.
