Average Interview

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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ferguson Enterprises (La Crosse, WI) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The first screening interview is a video interview. It is used by an online application so you are not speaking with a real person. You answer about 10 basic questions, and you have the opportunity to redo them as many times as you would like. They were basic screening questions, none of them were surprising.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call back the same day to complete a video interview online. The video interview was 6 questions including location preferences and basic questions. You could re record your answers which was great as I can get nervous and talk too fast. I was contacted by email about a week later for a phone interview. The interviewer was very easygoing and upbeat. About a week after the phone interview, I was contact by phone for a face to face interview at the branch. When I got to the location, I met with 2 people seperately, the sales manager and the operations manager. The sales manager went over my experience again and told me a little bit more about the position. The operations manager spent the whole I interview talking! He barely asked me 2 questions and the questions he did ask he would interrupt me before I could finish speaking. I guess he had already decided I wasn't a good fit because he was very vague when I asked when I should expect to hear back.

    Not too bad. Two interviews so far with nice recruiters. On to the third and final step of a two-day event at a central location. If all goes well I hope to get an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ferguson Enterprises (Blacksburg, VA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Spoke to a recruiter at a campus event. I filled out the online application, and was then contacted for a short phone interview, then completed an online video interview, and then my interview process was put on hold until I got closer to Graduation.

    The interview process was very extensive, but it seemed like getting a job was not too difficult. I was offered the position, but ended up accepting a position with another company. Overall, I think Ferguson is a great company with a good culture.
