    Human Resources Generalist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Boise Cascade (Raleigh, NC) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I had an initial phone screen, a face to face interview, and then 2 panel interviews, 1 in South Carolina and 1 in North Carolina. The company seemed very professional, polite, caring, and interested. However, despite my follow up, including an email, a phone call to the recruiter in charge, and written thank you notes, I never heard anything back from them (either positive or negative). It would have been great to just get a standard rejection email, at least, especially since I drove 2 1/2 hours for one of the interviews......

    Interview Questions

    • The interview questions were pretty standard, and not situational at all.   Answer Question

    Assistant Operations Manager Distribution Center Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Delran, NJ
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Boise Cascade (Delran, NJ) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I submitted a resume through a job posting website. Received an email one week later from the General Manager requesting an in person interview. Made it past the interview phase and then you take a Caliper Assessment on line at home, then they make a decision. The whole process takes about two to three weeks. This was over the Christmas holiday so the process may have taken longer the normal. The GM gave you a timeline which was quite accurate, except they did not make that final communication. The GM stated he would communicate either way if there was a job offer or not. Overall, a positive experience.
