    Supply Chain Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Montgomery, AL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Con-way Freight (Montgomery, AL).

    Interview

    I don't know how they do things now, but back in 2012 the interview process was quite intense. I had one phone and three on site interviews. The specific position I was applying for was Manager in Training. It's what everyone starts out at. 3 - 4 months of that you are promoted the actual position you applied for, which in my case was a Supply Chain Manager. Even though this is an entry level bachelor's degree position, you are going to want to be ready to recall solid work experiences that relate to you being in charge of a task; better yet, ones that involve you managing people well. Bring those referral letters!

    Interview

    It was pretty easy interview. In and out, really. I was recommended so that probably speeded the process. Classic questions about yourself, why are you interested in the company and the position and some randomly behavioral questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Con-way Freight in September 2015.

    Interview

    Recruiter was friendly and asked basic questions. Unfortunately, she was new to the company and unable to answer my questions about the company or position thoroughly. In the end, the recruiter emailed me two days after my interview and said they were no longer filling the position. In my opinion this should have been a call with more explanation.
