    Revenue Account Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at Watco Companies in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received a call back 7 weeks later. I was at work when I got the call so I scheduled the phone interview later that afternoon during my lunch break at 1 pm. The interviewer called at 1:07 pm

    It was explained to me that they were slow to respond because of someone being on maternity leave. They asked if I was still interested in the position. I told them that I had already been hired, so it would depend on the salary being offered. I was informed that the position was an entry level position and they were offering $32,000. As this was less than what I was making I informed them that I was not interested and thanked them for the opportunity.

    Note to Management: Since there is no room for negotiations in your salaries, might I suggest that you include the salary information in your job posting. It would save your people and those looking for employment time and effort.

    Process is well thought out, get to meet lots of upper mgmt, good travel arrangements if they need to fly you in. They use behavioral interviewing techniques and panel interviews, if you can break thru and get them to be personal you will get a good picture of their management style.

    Director of Recruiting Interview

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was very long. Very drawn out with absolutely no communication or feedback. The Corporate HR Manager was helpful but the SVP of HR was unprofessional and did not follow through on timelines. Communication- None. Setting Expectations- None. Professionalism- None. Very disappointed in the process given the fact the company is strong and has good people working. Would recommend the company, but avoid interviewing with SVP of HR if at all possible.
