    OUTSIDE SALES Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Honolulu Landing, HI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gexpro (Honolulu Landing, HI) in January 2014.

    Interview

    It was long but very worthwhile. There were a total of three interviews all lasted at least half an hour. The Sales Manager was very nice and polite. I would say it was overall a casual, but in depth interview.

    OUTSIDE SALES Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Gexpro (Atlanta, GA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Up front and basic interviews mostly directed at past experiences and comfort level driving sales to meet or exceed goals set by management. Started with phone interviews then progressed to face to face interviews. I was given four phone interviews. One with an HR recruiter then one with a manager of HR, then the local branch manager and finally the area manager. Face to face interviews followed with the local branch manager and operations manager. Then the final one was with the area manager. All were pretty up front about expectations and focused on what I could bring to the company.

    Warehouse Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cincinnati, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Gexpro (Cincinnati, OH) in February 2018.

    Interview

    They do not hire directly on. You must go through a Staffing Service. Once you interview with staffing, you interview with management. They then hire you on through staffing agency. If you are working out well they will keep you on. But beware, I lost a dollar on the hour when I became a direct employee.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Shelton, CT
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Gexpro (Shelton, CT) in March 2010.

    Interview

    It was a very positive experience for me. They asked a multitude of technical accounting and finance questions that were fairly simple and straightforward. They are looking for people who are interested in finance, who have business or internship experience and leadership ability. This position is focused for people who will continue to grow within the company.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview consisted of situational and behavioral questions. Following the phone interview I was told there would be a second interview with a different Gexpro executive. Never got the opportunity to interview that second time. After minimal contact for a period of two weeks, I received word that they were moving forward with another candidate.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Gexpro.

    Interview

    Though I have heard of some pretty advanced interview processes for DSLP candidates, there was none for interns; most likely because there is not much competition for interns.

    Interview Questions

    • For a possible follow-up internship next year, I was asked, "What could you bring to Gexpro." The reason that this question is so complicated is because first you have to analyze exactly WHICH field you plan to go into. This being both a supply-chain, sales, solutions, and electrical distribution company, there are many many different paths to take.

      Once you determine the path you think will be for you in the future, really consider what it is about you that makes you the ideal candidate for an asset in that area.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The negotiation stage is NOT a pass/fail. Don't worry about this phase at all. If someone asks for too much as a startup, the worst answer they are going to get is "no", but they are not going to get turned away. Obviously the company wants you, or they wouldn't be asking you about pay rate anyways. For interns in their first year, expect $15-$16 hourly. For inside sales, expect $38.5k annual. DSLP ~$34 annual.
