Retail Sales Representative Interview

Retail Sales Representative

I applied through other source and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Snyder's-Lance in January 2013.

Interview Details – This company just bought out The Snack Factory that makes Pretzel Crisps. I has a Sales/Division Manager call me from The Snack Factory and interviewed me on the phone. She did not respond. I eventually called her and she said that she would interview me in person. I drove four hours to the interview (THEY DO NOT REIMBURSE CANDIDATES FOR TRAVEL-VERY CHEAP). The lady that interviewed me said she would let me know within a few days if I was going to be offered or not offered the job. Months went by and finally I called the lady and she said that she already hired someone. I asked her why she did not return my emails or phone calls and she said it was a mistake. I wished her the best of luck to be professional. I would hope that this company and other companies would be respectful enough to update candidates after interviews, but that's the way some of these companies are. I WOULD RECOMMEND THAT ANYONE READING THIS STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY. THAT IS MY OPINION ONLY.

Interview Question – No tough questions. Pretty straight forward.   View Answer

Data Architect Consultant Interview

Data Architect Consultant
Charlotte, NC

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Snyder's-Lance in August 2009.

Interview Details – Teleconference with the hiring manager, and four members of the team. I was asked questions round robin in all technical areas of the job that included SQL Server, Dimensional Modeling, analysis, design, and business intelligence.

Having the team involved was to make sure there were no personality conflicts.

The interview process gave me a good understanding of the requirements of the job and the work environment.

I enjoyed the work environment and everyone I met was extremely helpful and a pleasure to work with.

My work environment was set up the first day and I was immediately productive.

I would gladly accept a perminant position with the company should one be offered.

Interview Question – Explain the most complicated function or procedure you've written with TSQL.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – You will be talked down on salary, regardless of what you request, so ask for $10 and hour more than what you want.

Materials Manager Interview

Materials Manager
Charlotte, NC

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Snyder's-Lance in February 2010.

Interview Details – Candidate selection process has been thought out. Interviews are too long in between, this has been based on the availablity of the interviewers. Phone interviews (several) have been inciteful and lengthy. On site interview was positive and impressive. People were interested and engaged. Repeat questions from phone interviews and lack of interviewer knowledge about the position were disappointing. Interviewers who were knowledgeable about the position were fantastic and asked pointed questions. Interviewed with Directors, VP, and plant manager. Culture was professional and serious. Seem to be in the process of BPA and restructuring. Would love to work for them.
