    Category Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at BuildDirect in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    1st round is a call with HR. Your basic first phone interview... here's the company, here's the role, tell me about yourself,

    2nd round is interview with HR, a current employee in a similar role and a Director. Pretty structured but essentially it consisted of 4 questions for each position listed on your resume: i) what was your biggest accomplishment ii) what was the result iii) what was your challenge iv) what would your boss (at that time) say about you.

    3rd round is a meeting with your potential new boss/team.

    Perception of culture is a high-energy start-up. The office is buzzing with activity. The only thing I could see as a challenge is that it's set up like a classroom, meaning rows of tables and several employees sitting side-by-side in close proximity at each table. Probably good for collaboration but bad for getting any type of privacy.
