    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tracy, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tracy, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Staff Management SMX in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online for the Tracy, CA fulfillment center. After application was filled in, I was given time slots to pick for a interview with up to 20 others. I chose one for the next day.

    At interview, we first took an easy, 10-minute skills tests. Then we waited to be called in for individual interviews. My interviewer was super sweet and we laughed about stuff. Not many questions, mostly just discussed job. She said she was putting me through, so I filled out some tax documents online while taking a cheek swab drug test. I was given choices of times to come back the next day fora one-hour orientation.

    Orientation was just watching a video, verifying our documents, taking our picture for our badge, and telling us about the job. Pretty simple, and all of the staff were very friendly.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. They confirm hours and pay after drug and background check results come back in 7-10 days, then your two days of training are scheduled. You do, however, get to tell them which shifts you can work on your initial application, so hopefully that's what I'll get confirmed.

    This is a simple interview. If you can read and write a little, don't have drugs in your system, and can speak a little English, you're good.

    Temp Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Staff Management SMX.

    Interview Details

    Incredibly unprofessional. Staff is all over the place. I was dressed more professionally than any of the staff. They were yelling across tables at each other etc. They just want a body. All about the numbers. I guess this is what is to be expected of a company hiring only seasonal temp employees for Amazon. However If I were Amazon, I would be embarrassed, it may be seasonal/temp, however a bit more regard in the hiring process I believe would save them time and money in obtaining quality employee's for recruitment.

    Warehouse Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Staff Management SMX in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I found their contact info on a job board. Emailed them, gave me a link to the application, and filled it out. A few days later I received a call telling me they were interviewing candidates in the Downtown office. Once I got there, they gave me this "assessment" in which you match products with their designated code (this resembles the coding used in the handheld device the warehouse workers use). If you pass that in the time allotted (10 min), they interview you, asking about previous work history, whether or not you're physically able to handle the job, and they ask you some "safety" questions which is really just based on common sense. Once you pass that, you'll be given an oral drug test while you watch an introductory video. After that, they give you a handbook with all the company policies and what not, and they tell you they'll call you/contact you for the orientation

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    They asked me to choose a shift, only to later be told that it was no longer available. I told them I couldn't work certain times because of school, and the recruiter responded by saying "I'll make note of that". They didn't. They're very unorganized.

    Initial phone interview discussed vague concepts and benefits. Had face to face interview oneweek later and it was only 5 minutes long. Was told that I would know about the position in a few days, and was given a tour of the facility before offered the job. However, the hiring and onboarding process took nearly 3 weeks.I

    Interview Questions
    • There were really no questions asked, which probably should have been a red flag. Instead, they told me that the job was hard and the peoplebwere tough.   View Answer

    Interview Details

    They will ask you about your management experience. Any is great to them. My boss used to be a taxi driver! If you are warehouse, as long as you can pass a drug test and you do not have too much on your record, you'll get hired. Must pass a simple test and lift up to 50 lbs.

    Interview Questions
    • There is none. Just do not spend a lot of time talking. Each interview has to be short, they are just hiring whoever they can. They need the people. Amazon is telling them how many they need, SMX must fill it.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I have a masters degree, I just needed a job to keep a float. I was told they would make me a salary position right away. Instead they hired me for seasonal work and then just kept me around for a while. I just had to basically answer some questions over a phone. If you want a warehouse position, you just have to apply on line and then pass the very simple test and a background/drug test.
