Interview Details – Face to face interview with the director of business development
Yes. I'm applying for supply chain analyst but had an interview the director of business development. He asked questions about my current jobs a lot. Like what's the culture there, what do you sell, what's the annual volume, what's the org structure. When I asked him about the position. He only said, " the job description is very easy. Just like what you saw on the website." He didn't even want to answer wetter this is a newly created position or a replacement. I felt he was trying to get information of my current job not looking for a now hire.
Interview Question – No difficult questions at all. View Answer

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at SYNNEX in April 2013.
Interview Details – Initially, the hiring manager reached out to me by phone and was very rude and cut me off several times while trying to answer his questions. I was very surprised when he offered to bring me in for an onsite interview, but I went anyway. He proceeded to tell me how unqualified I was but offered me a job with a compensation package at half the going rate for this region, which was about 30% less than the somewhat low range he mentioned on the phone screen.
Interview Question – Actually, the interviewer did most of the talking and really did not ask me any questions other than some very basic ones. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – The offer was extremely low and out of line with the scope of responsibility for this position.
