    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Wilbur-Ellis.

    Interview Details

    Had 15-20 phone interview. Asked questions like: What are your strengths & weaknesses? Where do you see yourself 5 years from now? Give an example of goal you have recently achieved or greatest achievement? Why do you want to work for this company?
    Two weeks later had a in-person interview. Asked questions like: (Including above questions) Where do you see yourself 5-10 years from now? Why should we hire you? Tell us something that is not on your resume? How would you respond to issues with other employees and/or customers? How do you manage your schedule? What do you know about the company?

    My suggestion is to learn everything you can about the company, director, channels, distribution network, etc.

    Interview Details

    I talked with them at my school's career fair and got a call that night to come in the next day to interview. The interview went very well. It was two men who were very nice. Typical questions, none that really surprised me. Very interested in hearing about my experience and talents. I am waiting to hear back, but they openly said they were very impressed with me.
    Examples:
    Tell me about yourself.
    Tell me about your current job.

    Management Training Program Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Wilbur-Ellis in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    I found out about the company through a recruiter, and was able to learn more about their products and what they are active in on their website.
    the first step was a personally test and IQ test, both done online, then was a interview with 3 people on the phone from their end, the Division manager, HR manager and senior sales manager. The phone conversation was about an hour long. They already had a copy of my resume however I went through it again and clarified a few things. Keep time spent going over your resume to a minimum, it’s just a waste of their time. They then asked me about travel (yes you will travel). They were all easy to talk to and liked well-formulated responses. After this phone interview the next week I was scheduled to have a 30 min talk to another manager, keeping answers focused and well rehearsed is advised.

    Almost everyone in the company comes from an agro background and many used to work on farm’s. a salt of the earth type personality is quite everywhere. However the office structure is also very present.

    I was always responded to quickly, usually in less then one day if I was moving forward or not.
