    Management Trainee Program Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Associated Materials (Cuyahoga Falls, OH).

    Interview

    Applied online through Indeed. Began with a video interview. Asked a few questions then you were given an allotted time to answer. Next had to answer a personality test and skills related test to see if you are a fit in the organization. After this moved to in person panel interview with a few tours on site. The whole process took roughly one month. Response from the in-person interview was very quick. Very friendly, actually had a presentation about the program, detailed tours and I left with all my questions answered. Actually felt the interview panel was prepared so I wasn't being asked the same questions or being fact-checked on my resume in the final interview.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Associated Materials (Cleveland, OH) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The smoothest and quickest phone interview process ever. Great communication and feedback. Submitted online application on Saturday, contacted by a Recruiter on Monday to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview went well, the Recruiter was very pleasant and polite. Questions were standard. I was also asked about my current salary and my salary expectations. At the end she informed me that they were looking for more of a RPG programmer than an as400 analyst and that she was not sure if I was the best fit, but that she would let me know either way. The next day I received an e-mail informing me that they have decided to proceed with another candidate.
