    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Baker & Taylor (Sacramento, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The District Manager contacted me soon after I filled out my application - within 2 days. We met at the location where the job would be. She was very professional. After discussing my work experiences, and discussing the job details, including wage, we walked around the store so I could have a better understanding of operations. After, we spoke a little on a personal level about our families, and said our goodbyes. She said she would contact me that afternoon after she conducted more interviews.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Baker & Taylor.

    Interview

    Went through a recruiter and ended up doing two interviews on two different days with three managers. Pretty straightforward - met with each manager individually and they each asked me questions and described the position they were hiring for. This took place in the Charlotte office and luckily, unlike other jobs, the wait time was not too long.

    Interview Questions

    • "Tell me a time when you...." (I forget the rest, but most of the questions were like this - which I hate!) Also strengths/weaknesses.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Baker & Taylor in April 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process went very smoothly. I was called by the Human Resource Manager, and she was very professional. I came in for my interview with Human Resources and the department Supervisor. The interview lasted about an hour. It was moreso handled by HR that the Supervisor, which was unexpected in my opinion. I was offered the position a week later.

    • The most unexpected was the HR lady conducting most of the interview, with little input from the supervisor. I had a lot of questions directed towards to the position.   Answer Question
