    Interview Details

    The interview process was pretty straight forward. I met with the the CEO as he said he likes to see the faces of the young people they bring in to potentially work for the company. I was asked the standard series of interview questions, and ended up having to take a series of analytic tests that were almost identical to what I had to fill out online when I was applying.

    Interview Details

    Initial contact with recruiter went very well. Talked with local district manager to set up interview. After the interview I was asked to go on a ride along day with another account manager to see the position. This was very helpful to see the position first hand. I liked what I saw and was offered the position and accepted the position.

    Interview Details

    I applied then received a phone call about a week later. I had three interviews (Telephone, In-Person, Field Ride) The phone interview lasted about 10 minutes with general questions. The in-person interview lasted 20 more minutes and was a lot more in-depth. The field ride was for me to see the day to day situations that I would be faced with as well as a behavioral test.

    Interview Questions
    • I have no idea how to answer this because the interview was about a year ago. The hardest question was, Where do you see yourself in 5 years? because this was my first outside sales job and I did not know what to expect.   Answer Question

    Tax Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mayfield Heights, Cuyahoga, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days - interviewed at State Industrial Products in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    They have an extensive application and test that must be taken before you can have an interview. The test took nearly 3 hours and asked pretty invasive questions including political beliefs. There was also a timed portion with a large number of questions with a very small amount of time to answer them. If you do not have the desired results on the test you will not proceed to an interview. None of the questions had anything to do with the position.

    Interview Questions
    • I don't remember any specific questions but I do remember wondering how it was acceptable for them to ask such questions on the test   Answer Question
