    Inventory Planner Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at True Value (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    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!

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

    Interview

    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.

    • As long as you are prepared to answer any sort of questions, you'll be fine. I suggest thinking about how you were an impact on previous jobs or during group work in college.   Answer Question

    Retail Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Selah, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at True Value (Selah, WA) in December 2012.

    Interview

    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

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at True Value (Chicago, IL) in December 2012.

    Interview

    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.
