Manager Trainee Interview

Manager Trainee
Denver, SC

I applied through other source - interviewed at Waterway Gas & Wash in February 2014.

Interview Details – I met with the manager in south Denver and he told me to get back to him. He told me to get a test done the next week. I interviewed on Friday and was told to call another manager to set up a working interview. I called the other manager on Monday and he never called me back. I called again on Tuesday and Wednesday he finally called me back and told me I waited to long to take test when the manager before told me it was not a rush.

Negotiation Details – I was told it was around 40k a year but negotiable, however when I spoke to the other manager he was rude and declined me for employment because I did not get the drug test on the Friday that I interviewed. The communication line was terrible and they were not upfront about expectations.

Went to the first interview where I was interviewed by a senior manager. This interview took about an hour.

Operations Manager Interview

Operations Manager
Kansas City, MO

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Waterway Gas & Wash in January 2013.

Interview Details – You initially start out with a phone call with the company's recruiting manager. He does a good job going over the resume you submitted before even calling you. So there is some pre-screening involved.

During the phone call he was very laid back, and just talked about the company. This isn't your traditional job after college, and he kind of tries to sell the position to you, but also does an impromptu interview with you. I was hooked after seeing all the similarities from the pros of the job with my wishes for a job. So we decided to set up an in person interview with a Senior Manager of the Region. I will keep names out of this, due to privacy.

The interview with the Senior Manager was your typical set up. Situation-based questions, questions about your past experiences, weaknesses, etc. Normal Interview kind of set-up. The Senior Manager liked me enough and sent me through to the General Manager's interview.

The GM's was more of the same, and offered for myself to come in for a job-shadow with herself and the Senior Manager. It was just another kind of interview, but I got to see the store ran and see myself in the shoes of the other managers there. It was a pretty good process.

Interview Question – Where do you see yourself in 12 months?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Just happy to get my foot in the door after 2 years of interviews and nothing beyond that.

I called with no response and eventually had to just show up and they gave me the first of three interviews. it was mainly just talking back and forth about availability, can you do this and that. just to make sure that I was a normal person and could handle the work.

Interview Question – You are stranded on an island. You have one book, one song on your ipod, one food and one beverage for the rest of your days. what are they?   Answer Question
