    Loss Prevention Officer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Maumelle, AR
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ace Hardware (Maumelle, AR) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I received a call within 2 or 3 days of applying to come in for an interview. I was interviewed by just one person. I was pretty straightforward and nothing unusual. It lasted approximately 30 minutes and he then took me on a tour of the facility. I received a phone call two days later offering me the position pending the outcome of a drug screen and background check. I had to go in and submit to a drug test as well as provide information for a third party background check. Three business days later I was officially offered the position and had to go in a third time to complete HR paperwork and do a simple physical agility test. So the time from applying to start date was approximately 3 weeks.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ace Hardware in May 2017.

    Interview

    There was one 30-minute screening with an HR representative followed by a video conference interview with two members of the team. The first interview was comprehensive about my background and skills as it related to the position. And 9 days later, I got an email about conducting a second round interview with two people on the team. I believe the second interview would have been in person if I were in the area.

    Interview Questions

    • The first interview was comprehensive about my background and skills applicable to the role. I can remember only two questions from the second interview: what is your background, and would you be okay working at the associate level? I walked away from the interview very surprised I wasn't asked more questions; the interviewers did most the talking. It wasn't very conversational for that reason. It was a well organized process, however, and I received a nice and professional email from the HR rep informing me they had chosen another candidate.   Answer Question
