Operations Supervisor Interview

Anonymous Employee in Alsip, IL

Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Anixter International (Alsip, IL).

Interview

If you are applying for a Operatios Supervisor position at the Alsip, IL facility, you better think long and hard if you really need this job.

During your interview here are a few questions to ask:

1) how did this position become available? The real answer is probably that they fired someone.
2) how many supervisors have you gone through in the last 24 months? The real answer is no less than 12! They go through supervisors like water. Corporate can't seem to question why so many supervisors are being let go. Some of these people were with the company for many years and were very smart/talented, but the managers will always make you the fall guy/gal so they keep their jobs.
3) what will my hours be? The real answer will be: take whatever hours they give you and add AT LEAST 2 hours to that.
4) so my pay plan includes a bonus? How many times in the last 5 years have the bonuses been paid out 100%? Real answer is once, most of the time you will get about 50% of your bonus. Subtract taxes from it and you are lucky to be just over $1000.
5) what is the ratio of managers to supervisors? Truthful answer is almost 1:1. What company has 1 manager to watch over 1 or 2 supervisors? This is a "$5 billion a year" company not a Wendy's franchise.

Anyways, if that doesn't scare you away at least you can put on your resume that you work for a Fortune 500 company. Maybe that will help you when you look for your next job...hopefully not because you were number 13.
