    IT Generalist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Columbia Distributing Company (Portland, OR) in August 2020.

    Interview

    The interview took a really long time to schedule. The first interview was with the director and it was ok, seemed like she just wanted to make sure I wouldn’t leave once hiring picked back up. The second interview was supposed to be a technical interview but there weren’t any technical questions, it was also a “culture fit” not sure what that meant but but culture is apparently not the same as theirs.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Columbia Distributing Company in October 2014.

    Interview

    Online application process is a tedious and not user friendly. Beware it does not auto-save, I took a minute phone call and the system timed out and I lost everything. The application process took over 3 hours to complete. I have been unable to access my previous application and use for new postings.

    The in-person interview was with 2 District Managers. Very nice, polite and professional.
