    Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at OEC Group (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Initial phone interview then office interview. Interview conducted by Dept head and HR rep. Very rude, laughing and smiling at responses that did not require follow up answers but they felt did. Still got the offer and declined. To be clear, this is a great company for job security, but not a place you want to work at in the Chicago office.

    Operations Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at OEC Group (Rosedale, NY) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and got an email from the recruiter to pick a time on her calendar to schedule a phone interview. The recruiter was extremely unorganized and emailed me the day before the interview asking me to pick a time on her calendar even though I already did and she never replied. On the day of the intended interview, I got a call 30 minutes after the scheduled interview time from the frantic recruiter who seemed to be in a rush to get me in. It didn't leave a good impression on me and she didn't think I was a good fit for the role after I told her about my work experience and major.

    Interview Questions

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at OEC Group (New York, NY) in August 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process took about 3 weeks - 1 month. The interview is a three step process: one over the phone (about 20 mins), two onsite (on site interviews with eight managers - four for each onsite interview from different departments). Each onsite interview can lasts anywhere from 15 mins to 30+ mins so don't feel intimidated if your interview is short.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at OEC Group (Itasca, IL) in June 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online, HR contacted me to schedule a phone interview with local office. A day & time were set, that day and time came and went without a phone call. Two days later I received a call with an apology for not calling me. We scheduled for 5 days later and that time also came and went and no one called. This company dropped the ball twice, HR emailed me asking how the interview went. I explained what had happen shortly after I received a call trying to deny, I asked to be removed from any openings they had.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at OEC Group (Rosedale, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Very simple process. Began with a phone interview followed up with an on-site interview. The people who interviewed me were very lenient and wasn't your traditional interview. If you plan on interviewing for the sales department, make sure you can fit their culture.

    Administrative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rosedale, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at OEC Group (Rosedale, NY).

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email the following day, expressing interest and with instructions on how to schedule an initial phone interview. I scheduled for the next available day and spoke with someone from HR for about 5 minutes discussing basic qualifications. I was invited the following week for a second interview which went well in my opinion. I was then contacted via email the following day to return for a 3rd interview in which I met which several managers from different departments. The last person I was introduced to, told me that he really didn't have any questions for me because of my rave reviews and that they had made a decision already. One would assume something like that would only be said to a candidate if it is them they are referring to. I gave it a week before sending a follow up email reiterating my strong interest in working with the company, only to receive a rejection email the following day. In my opinion my time was wasted. And I felt somewhat led on.

    Import Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at OEC Group (New York, NY) in April 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process was extremely inefficient. After applying, you get a phone call from HR where you introduce yourself and they explain the company, position, and ask some basic questions. An e-mail is then sent to schedule an in-person interview with three managers and an HR rep. The HR rep leads the interview by basically repeating the phone interview and asks if you have any questions. Each manager then asks a question each. The questions are the most generic interview questions and it seems like they're asked just for the sake of their presence there. You're then sent another e-mail to schedule the 2nd in-person interview which is the same interview AGAIN with other upper management. Note that each step occurs a week apart making the entire process last around a month long. Huge waste of time for a generic interview!!
