    The process took 3 months - interviewed at Valspar.

    Interview Details

    Much selling about the great things offered. Not very challenging interview. Selling more as to how the company is growing. Seemed little desperate and not evaluative. Very easy interview that did not make me feel the job would be hard to get

    It's long. One to one face talk every hour. You will feel very tired especially when you are asked very tough questions. They are friendly at first, however, after they decided not to give an offer, everything changed.

    Distribution Center Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Valspar in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was initially contact by a staffing agency for the position. The screening process went very well. I had a phone screen and subsequent face to face interview with the HR manager who was wonderful to work with. The next step was a site interview with the hiring manger and company engineer. I was with both for about four hours total. Facility was great; engineer was very knowledgeable and considerate. I used the phrase "chain of command”. After a total of 8 hours of interviewing was told that made me sound to militaristic! Perhaps the 12 years of military service outlined on my resume would have given that away. A total waste of time. Hiring manager stated she encouraged me to join groups related to logistics as she would not be my mentor if she hired me as she would be too busy to lead teach and coach.
