    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BlueLinx (Atlanta, GA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Unprofessional at first. The recruiter could not keep up with times and appointments nor did they understand the business of BlueLinx. The in-house interview was better but one individual I spoke with did not seem to believe BlueLinx would be around in the next 10 years due to loss of market share and increasing debt load.

    Inside Sales Representative II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Worth, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BlueLinx (Fort Worth, TX) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through LinkedIn and within a week was contacted by a recruiter for a phone interview. The phone interview went well and I was scheduled for an in person interview with the manager of the department. The interview was very laid back and lasted about 1 hour. During the interview I was told they would make a decision in about 2 weeks, but the whole process ended up taking about a month. The hiring manager did keep me updated during the process.

    Buyer I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Englewood, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BlueLinx (Englewood, CO) in May 2011.

    Interview

    My brother in law who is a software programmer for the lumber department got me an interview with the VP of metals at the time. 1 phone interview then 1 face to face then gave me the offer and waited 2 weeks to start the job from initial contact.

    Work culture was laid back, office people super laid back and not very bright (just there for the paycheck for most departments and most individuals).

    Advice... Don't work here if you get a similar or even a lower compensation offer elsewhere. Only come here as a last resort for a job...

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BlueLinx (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Two phone interviews and one in person. Hiring manager did both phone interviews and in person interview was himself, three would be coworkers and the CIO. No clue why the CIO was even there as his questions were ridiculous and really not relevant to the position.

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at BlueLinx (Chicago, IL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Basic interview; no surprises. HR interview portion was almost worthless. Probably the best thing about this process was just spending a few minutes discussing sales close strategy with the hiring manager.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BlueLinx in January 2013.

    Interview

    Overall good experience. Very lengthy though, interviewed with about 7-8 people. HR was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. Interview difficulty was average was more of a conversation rather than someone sitting there firing questions at you.
