I applied online and interviewed at WIS International.

Interview Details – Not much of an interview. She briefed me on the job description and then proceeded to put my info in the database. Then scheduled me for my first day. Which sounds great when you don't have any other options

Negotiation Details – Don't work here unless you have to

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at WIS International in February 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online and got an email back from WIS the next morning to call a number to schedule an interview. I got a brief job description on the phone and was asked my availability, if I'm able to stand for long hours, and where and when to meet with an employee. Once I got there, there was a short video, a more detailed description of the job and environment, and a quick rundown of the machine you use to count. I assumed I had the job then, but I had to call them back for them to inform me they had over interviewed. How disorganized of them. Speaks much of the way the company runs.

Interview Question – No difficult questions. I was asked my availability and whether I submit to a background check.   Answer Question

Inventory Associate Interview

Inventory Associate
Charleston, WV

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at WIS International in June 2013.

Interview Details – I got a phone interview and then an in person interview after that. The phone was a screener from a call center asking if I'd been convicted of any felonies and if I was a U.S. citizen or had a work visa. The in person interview was easy--basically, since I was there, and showed a willingness to start working, I had the job.

Interview Question – There were no difficult questions. She asked, "What are you looking for?" and I was honest with her, and that was that.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. They start you out at 9.50/hr for counting and if you don't call off and always show up on time for the first 30 days of work you automatically get a .25 raise. If you get certified to be a driver, you get $10/hr when driving, otherwise travel time is minimum wage.

Inventory Associate Interview

Inventory Associate
Bakersfield, CA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at WIS International in December 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online. It took about a week for a call back. The woman who called me asked a few simple questions like: Do you have reliable transportation?, Are you willing to travel?, What's your avaliablity?. After that she told me to meet with her at a location 2 weeks from the call. The day of the interview there were about 6 people there in a room and she asked us to state our name and how we heard about the job along with the previous job we held. After that she had us watch a video. When it was over she let us have a 5 min break and if she weren't interested we could leave. Once we got back from the 5 min break she taught us how to us the scanner. After that she gave us one on one interview. I was first and she offered me a job. The questions she asked are very simple. Don't worry. Good luck!
