    Compensation Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at McLane Company (Austin, TX) in March 2020.

    Interview

    I interviewed with the recruiter who was helpful and pleasant. Then I was setup for a skype interview with the hiring manager. After setting time aside on my calendar and taking time off from my contract assignment the hiring manager did not show for the 1st interview appointment and I had to initiate contact to find out if the hiring manager was going to join the skype meeting. I was told due to Covid-19 the hiring manager was busy but at no time did anyone from the company reach out to make me aware that there was an unexpected emergency, Things happen I thought, so I went ahead and agreed to another appointment 5 days later. About an hour prior to the interview I received a call to push it out by 30 minutes. At this point I declined to continue the interview process because I felt this was a bell weather of how they would treat me as an employee. Just as when dating, interviewing is an opportunity to make a great 1st impression. My big take away is that if they did not value my time nor me as a candidate they surely wouldn't treat me better as an employee. And my last point is that this was an HR interview so if this is how the HR team operates, I can only imagine how the rest of the company treats candidates and employees.

    Purchasing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Temple, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at McLane Company (Temple, TX) in February 2019.

    Interview

    First step is a phone interview. After passing that stage, be prepared to give a 10 minute PowerPoint presentation about yourself and what you can learn about the company. This is used to weed out applicants that don’t want to put in the effort. After giving your presentation you will be asked questions by various Category Managers and Product Directors. Questions are mostly about past experiences and knowledge of the job. If given a second interview, you will meet with various CMs and PDs again and be given more information about the job. The info given is very cryptic. Seems that for a buyer, McLane wants fresh people...usually right out of college. This is so they can mold them and keep them here. Salary is non-negotiable as well. Overall it’s a very easy interview. Tell them what they want to hear and your in.

    Vice President Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at McLane Company in November 2018.

    Interview

    First phase interview was a "get to know you," and a skills review with senior internal HR/recruiter. They seemed very friendly and connected to me on LinkedIn. After the interview, I sent a thank you email and also addressed a question the person had raised at the end of the discussion. They never responded to the email or acknowledged it. I got no follow up from them until the canned "thanks for no thanks" email. So much for respecting potential "teammates"!
