    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Consolidated Electrical Distributors (Springdale, AR) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Met at career fair, had formal interview the following day. Recruiter/Manager directed me to sit at a small table in his office then walked back to his desk so we had a good 15+ feet in between us... weird but not as weird when he took 2 phone calls even putting one of them on loudspeaker via his cell phone mid interview... unprofessional environment and lost interest after the face to face meeting. PS. at the end you take the Wonderlic test followed by 190 question personality assessment.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Consolidated Electrical Distributors (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I interviewed for the Management Trainee Program with CED recently. The interview begins with them asking you for questions about the position and and company, and they are clearly evaluating you to gauge your interest in the position. Several other candidates interviewing that day seemed to have little interest in actually taking the position (it was shortly after a job fair and they gave out interviews to almost all who showed any interest). They followed with general personality questions and finished with the Wonderlic Test (50 questions, 12 minutes to answer).

    Had an initial interview and then further assessments, which were pretty extensive. I was told that I would hear back from them, regardless of whether or not I got the position and I never did. I found this very inconsiderate.
