    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Ferguson Enterprises (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Applied through a campus recruiting. I received a call within the day to complete a video interview. The interview had 9 questions and you were allowed to re record your answers if needed. After completed, I had a phone interview with the recruiter and I was invited to the final interview in Houston, TX. The final interview was 2 days. The first day we toured the facility and had dinner with executives and current employees of each department. The second day had three back to back interviews. Very unique and awesome interview experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Ferguson Enterprises (Denver, CO) in May 2017.

    Interview

    A 3-step process. 1. Video recorded interview that you could re-take multiple times. 2. Phone interview with a recruiter 3. Paid for your transportation either flight or drive to a location for a 2-day final recruiting event.
    Incredible interview process. The entire experience shows the Ferguson values and their family-like culture. You are truly appreciated as a candidate and they try to accommodate you best as possible. They look for my conversational type skills because it's a sales role and to see how well you fit in. They ask the typical situational/behavioral questions.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Ferguson Enterprises.

    Interview

    3 Interviews. 1 - Online Video 2 - Phone Interview 3 - Fly out. The first one asks basic interview questions. The second one is where you get into a few tougher questions as to why you should get another interview. The final one is 3 interviewers, but it is supposed to help figure out if your personality really works with the company and where you might work best if offered a job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ferguson Enterprises in April 2017.

    Interview

    First I received a phone call asking for a good time to set up a phone interview. The phone interview went well. They took awhile to get back to me, but then I received an email to set up a video interview. The video interview was very casual and the interviewer made jokes and smiled a lot. Two weeks later he called with an offer.

    Sales Trainee Program Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ferguson Enterprises.

    Interview

    Well the hiring process seemed to be going pretty quick at the beginning but you will probably get old by the time you hear back from the HR. I was first contacted by Ferguson recruiter 3-4 days after I applied on their online portal. Then, I sent a pre-recorded video and got a request to set a date for phone interview the next day. I had a phone interview on the following week and that was in mid Jan. At this point, mind as well forget about even applying at this company. So, beside the lengthy weary process, all the interview questions were fairly easy.

    Warehouse Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McFarland, WI

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Ferguson Enterprises (McFarland, WI) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The branch manager interviewed me. It seemed like they had high turnover and current employees were overworked. When I asked why the current/previous manager had left, she said that he had worked there for 5 years and recently decided he wanted less responsibility so was now the warehouse supervisor instead of manager. When I told her that i had kids and was a family man, she seemed discouraged. All in all, I didn't get the job, I was very qualified, but my impression was that they were just looking for someone that they could overwork and underpay. Had I been offered the job, I wouldn't have taken it. So glad I read so many reviews on glassdoor prior to my interview, as this seems to be the norm across the board with warehouse workers for this company.

    Interview Questions

    • If you got this job, would you need to be the one that drops your kids off at school in the morning? (totally irrevelent and illegal question to ask during an interview process, btw)   2 Answers

    Finance Trainee Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ferguson Enterprises (Newport News, VA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Completed a standard phone screening then went into their headquarters for an in-person interview. The interview process was six separate sit downs, the last being with the current finance trainees. The interviews themselves were pretty generic and relaxed, more of a conversational interview than an interrogation.
    The hiring process took almost a month because someone left for vacation in the middle of it and they couldn't do interviews. When I do get a call back about the job, the recruiter cited "inexplicable laughter" during interviews and that I "belched and didn't excuse myself" as some reasons for going with other candidates. Both of these are completely false and simply ridiculous. Don't waste your time.
