    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ferguson Enterprises.

    Interview

    Ferguson was looking to hire for two IT position, so there was 2 managers interviewing me. The lady was drilling me about things in the administrative panel in microsoft. Most of her questions were nonsense questions, very hard to answer if you were not sitting in front of a server to reference. Seems like a person had to be "book smart" to get this job. Ridiculous.
    The male counterpart was more logical, asked real world questions in reference to the job.

    Inside Sales Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Ferguson Enterprises (Roseville, MN) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Applied via LinkedIn during the beginning of Sept, heard back a week and a half later. First step was an online video recorded interview. Cool process as you can re-answer your question as many times as you'd like before submitting it. Basic procedural questions, ie. how you handled certain situations. Two weeks later I was invited to a phone interview scheduled the next week. They asked a lot of the same questions as the online recorded sessions. Was informed I'd know within the next two weeks if I'd be invited to the next step. HAD TO EMAIL THEM AFTER 2 1/2 WEEKS where I was informed I was invited to to their regional recruiting session at a Ferguson location. Cool. They paid for my Hotel and any expenses involved in the trip to their location. They even flew in other candidates from out of state. They quite literally rolled out the red carpet for us. The last step in the interview process was a basic introduction and "Thank You", followed by a tour of the Ferguson warehouse and Showroom, dinner with Ferguson Managers and the President of the company, with three rapid-fire interviews the following day with folks you met at Dinner. After the final 3 interviews, you are informed of another 2wk waiting time, in which you will either get an offer or a "Thank you for you interest in..." email. From start to finish, the process took almost 3 months. My region's starting salary was 48k, but considering the 50/hr/wk requirement, it was pretty low. Benefits are what you'd expect from a billion-dollar company; pretty good, nothing amazing.

    Interview Questions

    • None of the questions were overly difficult. Heck, McDonalds asks the same questions. The only main factor that makes them hard is who asks them, the head honcho's of the company. This can be very intimidating.   Answer Question

    They lay out the red carpet for you, but then expect you to contribute at least 50 hours a week at subpar pay. Good opportunity to get foot in the door.
