    Branch Merchandiser Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Blue Bell Creameries.

    Interview Details

    I saw an ad for a branch merchandiser position with the local depot. Full time position, love BB ice cream so of course I applied. Submitted my application through CareerBuilder, received a call a couple days later (on a Thursday, I believe) from the Area Manager telling me that the manager of the depot wouldn't be back until the following week and at that time he would interview me. So I waited. Got a call from the depot manager that Monday and he asked me to come in at 9:00am on Tuesday. So I did. The interview lasted a little longer than an hour and mostly pertained to the position itself. I left the interview feeling pretty good about it. I called him a couple times throughout the week the check up on the status, he told me he would make a decision the following week and let me know. I don't get another call from him until Thursday at 10:40am, he asked me if I could come in at 1:00pm for a second interview. Of course I obliged, I had never wanted a job this badly. This interview lasted an hour and twenty minutes and mostly pertained to me and why I thought I would be a good fit for this position. I left feeling VERY good after that interview.

    Negotiation Details
    There really weren't any negotiations to be had. Blue Bell offers a 401(k) with company match, an employee stock option and an pension plan. The salary is decent, the commission structure is great and you get all the free ice cream you can handle (on the job, and a hefty discount on ice cream to take home to the wife and kids). I would have been a fool to try and bargain with the man, and I would be a fool not to retire from this great company.
