    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at True Value.

    Interview Details

    I was an Intern at True Value for about 12 weeks. Towards the end of the internship, I was able to interview for a full-time position after graduation. There was only one interview with a few of the directors of the department.

    The Talent Management Team was very helpful throughtout the process. They gave me the necessary tools that were needed in order to be successful in the interview. The questions were mostly behavior based, and if you have any retail and/or leadership experience in college, then you shouldn't have any worries!

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at True Value.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was great. True Value asked me behavorial questions, and were very straight forward on what they expected. The HR staff here is extremely helpful and answers questions completely without being evasive. Great company to work for without a doubt. Take full advantage of the college recruiting and DO NOT pass up mock interviews at your college.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Selah, WA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at True Value in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Generally you're interviewed by the owner and the "HR" manager, they ask very broad and general questions that anyone can answer if you've had any kind of experience. Be sure to talk to only the "HR" manager as the other managers will blow you off. Be sure to talk to him personally or your application will get lost on his desk

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, you either take their offer or you wont get the job. They assume they can find anyone to do the job and quality doesn't matter to them.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at True Value in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Initially chosen for an interview through college recruiting. Went through a 1-on-1 interview with HR on campus, entirely behavioral questions, and was then contacted several weeks later for a day of interviewing at corporate. I interviewed with several directors in inventory planning, followed by several business process managers - everyone was very clear about their expectations and what they were looking for. They were also honest with opportunities for movement within the company and the structure of the job. Overall pleasant experience! I received a call a week later with an offer and accepted.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at True Value in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Campus Interview: They scheduled me for a campus interview and they had 13 interview slots on-campus. Interview lasted about 45 minutes (6-7 behavioral questions) with the director and another inventory planner in the room. At the end of the interview I was told they will let me know within 1-2 weeks if they want me to go further in the interviewing process. 3 Weeks went by and I had to contact them to ask if they had decided on me. They should let candidates know if they want them or not.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at True Value in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    2 interviews, one on campus and one at the corporate headquarters. 3 panel interviews at corporate, had to basically say the same thing to each group of people. No skills test or anything objective. Also got a tour of the building and met a recent grad who was working at the position I was applying for

    Reasons for Declining

    They offered me 43,000 per year and refused to negotiate. That is honestly pretty insulting considering what the typical offer is for that position in other companies (usually between 55,000 and 60,000) and the extremely high standard of living in Chicago and Cook County in general.
