    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at ARCO (Saint Louis, MO) in March 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process was very long. I had five total interviews split into two separate days. They did not do group interviews, but about an hour of time with each person. The people I interviewed with were great, but there was an air of falseness around them. It seemed like the pleasantries were forced, like they were talking through a screen of false happiness. Furthermore, they kept talking up their benefits (which are amazing, btw), but after the initial discussion of this with the HR person on the phone, I don't think it should have been brought up. It almost felt like they were trying to convince me of how awesome of a place it is, but this made me suspicious that they were hiding something.

    Also, they gave me a printed packet which contained all of their benefits, then I didn't hear from them for weeks. I've never been given a benefits packet at an interview before. Needless to say, it lead me to believe that I was successful in the interview. I was not. I think they shouldn't hand this out, it's very misleading.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at ARCO in June 2017.

    Interview

    Hiring process was very positive for me-- I heard back from the recruiter who posted the job only a couple days after applying. We spoke on the phone for a brief interview and the following I was invited to come in and meet the team for a formal interview. Everyone seems genuinely happy to be at this company and all had great things to say.

    Interview Questions

    • Interview questions were pretty standard and went a lot more like a conversation. They asked about my past experience and how I see it relating to the position. I was also given many opportunities to ask questions of my own about the company.   Answer Question

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ARCO.

    Interview

    An internal recruiter reached out to me via LinkedIn and scheduled a phone screen. A few weeks later I completed a second phone interview with one of the hiring managers. The in-person interview was in front of their senior team and I was asked to present my process/ideas. After all this, I received no replies to my follow up call and emails. Instead I received a system generated rejection email. Poor experience - they were not flexible scheduling the interview and then how they closed it out reflected terribly on their HR team.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at ARCO (Downers Grove, IL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The call to schedule interview. You go to office and have 2 interviews with the partners of the company. They pretty much just want to have a conversation with you about who you are as a person. Based off who they hired, the interview is mostly used to gauge if you would fit into the environment of the company. The test is used to see if you have the intelligence required.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at ARCO (New York, NY).

    Interview

    After 3 interviews I was told I had to take a personality and critical thinking test. I was also told only about 20% of people do well enough on the tests to be considered for the job. After taking the test I didn't get much feedback and felt as if I was mislead during the process.
