    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

    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.

    Interview Questions
