    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at McMaster-Carr (Atlanta, GA) in October 2010.

    Phone Interview, Office Tour, 4 1 on 1 Interviews, overall interview took about 3 hours to complete. Recruiter failed to mention in phone interview that it would take this long, but luckily after reading reviews on glassdoor i figured out this is standard regardless what position you apply for. Advised to wait 1 or 2 weeks to hear response, got letter in mail dated 5 days after interview regarding rejection.

    Warehouse Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Aurora, OH
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at McMaster-Carr (Aurora, OH) in June 2011.

    Interview

    get a walk around, then two 1:1 interviews. It was made clear that there was no opportunity for advancement from the lowly warehouse worker position. There were no questions about my resume, they were much more concerned with my personality and whether I would fit in... I had trouble hiding my contempt.

    Reasons for Declining

    The buisness model was just too odd. pay 50K/year for a warehouse worker, normally paid 14$/hr... the interviewers seemed like they were on crack, they were so high strung and excited about the company in an intense agressive kind of way . Aurora is in the middle of nowhere

    Warehouse Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at McMaster-Carr (Atlanta, GA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    I have previously interviewed with the company and replied to another posting on CareerBuilder. Within 24 hours, I was contacted and a phone interview was set. I believe this to be their policy.
    The interviewer asks simple standard questions and, overall, is an enjoyable experience - as much as any interview can be.

    Warehouse Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Fe Springs, Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at McMaster-Carr (Santa Fe Springs, Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Someone texts you and then you phone interview. Then I was offered an interview on site. It was with three people and long. Very friendly people. I think my desire for career grow really limited my chances here so my suggestion would be to hide that somehow. The good thing is you get to practice interviewing a few times. I do not expect an offer as I didn't take it too seriously. The benefits are amazing. Once you get the tour, you'll get a feeling of what it's like. They don't hide what's it like. If you don't get an offer, it's a blessing in disguise. You will see once you go there but I recommend going to see. It could be a fit for some but I would think it's not a fit for most. If you just want a job, then definitely go.
