    Operations Manager - Archives Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sterling, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at JK Moving Services (Sterling, VA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    After submitting a resume and applying on their site on 08/15/17 it only took two days for me to get a call from a gentleman asking to setup an interview when the General Manager returned from being out of town and I had completed a PI survey. I informed them that being that I was currently employed I would need a specific day and time before I could commit to an interview. I was told that would be fine and they would be in touch to setup a time. Previously I had applied for a different position at JK and had already taken a PI survey. I never received an email with the link to a new PI survey. Realizing that I had already filled out a survey I decided to call their HR to find out if my previous survey would be valid or if I needed to complete a new one since I was applying for a different position. Calls were placed daily for three days to reach HR and each time it went straight to voicemail. The third day I spoke to the operator to find out if HR was also out of town since none of my calls had been returned. She was able to transfer me to Marco in HR. Marco was also unsure if my previous PI survey would still work and said he'd need to look into it, but would email me back as soon as he had an answer. He was prompt in getting back to me to let me know that my PI would still be fine. That email was received on 08/18/17. That was the last time I heard from anyone. I continued to check back on the website to see the status of my application. Today, 08/29/17 the application status was finally changed from "review" to "closed". I have handled the hiring process from start to finish at several of my occupations previously. The fact that it took three days to even reach an actual person from HR was unacceptable. The fact that there was a call placed in regards to setting up an interview pending the PI survey was also senseless when there was already a survey from me in their possession. Finally, the fact that a phone call wasn't made or email sent to inform me or other applicants that the position had been filed was also rather unprofessional, especially when that status wasn't changed until nearly two weeks later.

    Director of Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at JK Moving Services (Orlando, FL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted to take an assessment test. After I completed the test I was informed my results were sent to the hiring team. A day later I was contact for an interview for a far lower position than I applied for. Operations Manager / Dispatch. I informed the GM who contacted me about he error. Tom was good about it. I followed up with HR to inform them that I was offered up to a position that I have 8 similar reporting to me and asked if I was still being considered for the proper position. I was then informed I didn't have the skills they were looking for in that position....Definitely some confusion.

    I applied online. I interviewed at JK Moving Services in February 2017.

    Interview

    Didn't interview for original position. They actually reviewed y qualifications and offered me another position that more closely matches my background. I was blown away that somebody actually read my resume and took my skill set to apply to a position rather than a computer making assumptions based on words.

    Customer Service Coordinator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at JK Moving Services (Sterling, VA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    HR coordinated my interview to be with my direct Supervisor. She was friendly and welcoming. Very good conversation. Not stilted, not formal HR type questions read from a printed list. She was getting a feel for my natural behavior and making sure I'd be a good member of the TEAM. Exactly how an interview should be. Then, I had a 2nd interview with a VP, a big, friendly, helpful guy that just about anyone in this world would want as a boss or father. Then, my 3rd interview was with the big boss GM. I told my wife after that interview that I may not have gotten the job.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at JK Moving Services in May 2015.

    Interview

    I was presented with the International Operations Manager. She was very serious and sought out professional responses but also kept it rather light and easy going. At first, I was discouraged as I thought I was rambling on about myself and my qualifications, but then I began to ask questions about JK Moving and I believed my curiosity assisted me in acquiring a job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at JK Moving Services (Sterling, VA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted via telephone by one of the company's HR reps. A date and time was established for the interview. The HR rep was very friendly and polite.

    I interviewed with the Comptroller and A/R Manager. Both individuals seemed like decent people. I was made to feel at ease for the interview. I was provided an overview about the company, the makeup of the accounting team, and the busy periods of time. Both individuals were open to questions that I had and seemed to provide honest responses.

    I loved the office environment. The cubicles were very nice and each work space had a dual monitor setup.

    I was surprised that the position was hourly, not salaried.

    Interview

    Per interview surveys used to assess intelligence, logic, behavior. Actual interview with CXO level disappointing! They were old fashioned in approach and method. HR and CEO impressive. Glad I didn't get an offer, would not have had support from president or vice.
