    Fast Paced Environment, but if you've got the skills, you can go very far, and recruiters bang down your door

    Former Employee - Operations Manager in Springdale, AR

    I worked at Apex Tool Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent foundation in Toyota Production System. High caliber coworkers. You will learn a lot, and it's very transferable to other companies.

    Cons

    Very stressful. You can't turn it off - Managers are required to know everything happening in their department, 24-7. That's not a bad thing, but it can wear on you after a while

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A bit more transparency would be appreciated. Too much secrecy in the upper ranks; more than needed to accomplish the task.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Apex Tool Group.

    Interview Details

    Contacted after resume submittal. Phone screened multiple times, then in-person interview. Fairly standard interview process but generally disorganized, with multiple schedule changes due to poor management of the process by HR. Salary was competitive and negotiable. Know your resume and be able to speak to specific examples of accomplishments that are relevant to the interview questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Many questions seemed to be canned and around process. Study up on lean process or google DBS or CBS business system.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Definitely negotiate.
