Distribution Center Manager Interview

Distribution Center Manager
Romeoville, IL

I applied through a staffing agency and 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.

Interview Question – Questions were standard. Nothing out of the ordinary.   Answer Question
