Easy Interview

Application

I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Allied Building Products (San Jose, CA).

Unprofessional. The Manager and Regional Manager were not skilled interviewers. I met one individual and discussed sports and listened to him rant on about unrelated topics. Then I met with decision maker and watched a he just stared me down.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Allied Building Products.

    Interview

    It was actually a pretty simple process, the only thing that took forever was the background check, it seems like Allied digs down deep to try and find anything at all in your past in order to disqualify you. The interview with the branch manager was very funny due to the fact that I listened more than I spoke during the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Allied Building Products in June 2009.

    Interview

    I interviewed with the VP of Sales and the owner of the company. They both are excellent sales people, but they lack much in training. The entire company lacks an adequate training program. They rely on the new employee to get training from their customers...that doesn't make a lot of sense, right? Even on the job training with other sales people didn't work because they treat you like you're supposed to know as much as them already.
