    Accounts Payable Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Harrison, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Altaquip (Harrison, OH) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online in first part of June and was called by the Accountant about three weeks later. We spoke for a couple of minutes and she informed me that the position was full time but seasonal (5-6 months a year). She asked me if I wanted to proceed and so we scheduled my interview. Went in several days later and met with the Accountant and a gentleman who worked there who was doing the actual interview. He asked me a few questions regarding my work history and nothing about my experience. Then he proceeded to inform me that the job was actually about 20 hours a week with 40 hours when they got busy. So about 4 hours a day. I had wondered why he asked if the location was too far for me to drive. Since the interview I have called to follow-up with the Accountant regarding the position and have since the ad reposted twice. Not a good sign from where I sit and to think that Warren Buffett himself is the CEO of this company.

    • Are you aware that this job is only part time seasonal (only 20 hours/wk)?   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Altaquip.

    Interview

    Easy job to apply. Company is main stream entry level positions. If you have minimal knowledge of Work,Excel and internet options, then its becomes basic experience. Learn the 10 key pad. Most part numbers are number based so 10 keying is important for speed necessity.

    All questions asked are pretty common interview questions. Always be honest, but most questions you can easily stretch the truth if needed.

    You will have to submit to a background and criminal check. And the company is slow on getting the results back and working through the hiring process, so if takes longer than a few days, keep in touch. It can take 2 weeks before the criminal check comes back.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you know how to 10 key? Like I said, know what a ten key is and how to do it. You won't be asked for a demonstration, but this is the most important part of the job.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Starting pay, with a performance pay after 90 days, with the opportunity for benefits also.
