    Sales Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Arrow Electronics in March 2017.

    Interview

    After submitting an application I was contacted by a campus recruiter and we set up a phone interview, which was pleasant. A few weeks later I got a generic email saying they were moving forward with other applicants, which was fine, but then I was contacted over a month later by a recruiter who provided the worst experience I've ever had with an interview process. She sent an email asking if I had time to talk with her about the sales internship in Boston, so after informing her I'd already heard back she proceeded anyway. I prepared for the phone interview, but 15 minutes after the scheduled time had passed I left her a voicemail and sent an email saying when I was free if another time worked better for her. I got a call back well after I had left the quiet interview space, at which time she seemed annoyed and claimed she had called me. She asked which internship I was interested in and was generally unprepared, and the call kept cutting in and out because her line was bad. The cherry on top was when that night at 7:30pm my phone rang. It was the recruiter, thinking she was calling a friend, and when I said who I was she responded with a laugh and a quick "sorry, wrong number!" Truly the most unprofessional and strange interview I've ever had, and I would never want to work with that recruiter again.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Arrow Electronics.

    Interview

    Phone screening with recruiter and then individual interviews with the managers who I potentially would have worked with. The recruiter was really nice, and was easy to communicate with. I asked her a lot of question. I ended up doing several interviews after that though.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Arrow Electronics.

    Interview

    phone call with no in person intervene all all the questions asked in the phone call were basic how much experience do you have when i told them i had 3 years building computers it sounded like she was salivated they asked me to come in in three days whole process seamed kind of odd to me my first day i found that no one had even told them i was coming it worked out in the end and its a good place to start if you have no experience but you would have to be able to put up with the work and most times its relay boring and grueling at times and they can let you go at any point if you a temp even if its just because they have no work to give you

    Interview

    Interviews consisted of a phone screen and then onsite interviews in Colorado. The company never followed up after the onsite interviews. They had committed to reimbursing me for travel expenses but after I submitted them to the Talent Acq. contact they chose to ignore my follow up calls and emails and I have never received reimbursement.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Arrow Electronics (Reno, NV) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by phone and then scheduled for an interview. They called a second time to ask if I could come in earlier because they wanted to let people go early to Christmas shop. I let her know at that time that I had already accepted a job and wouldn't be interviewing with Arrow. She insisted that I give them a try...she was sure I'd love the company and they could place me. So I agreed to the earlier time and wasted my gas and time (75 miles round trip) to go to their job fair. 3 days later I received their email saying I hadn't been selected. I'm thankful they didn't select me....I would have turned it down anyway.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Arrow Electronics in November 2016.

    Interview

    A phone screen that lasted 12 minutes. Job discussed did not match the posting. No skills were assessed, the only questions were why I left my past jobs over a 25 year period! Recruiter was unable to answer basic questions I asked based on the posting (she hadn't read it). No follow up. The applicant experience was very poor.
