    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Orscheln Farm and Home (Higginsville, MO) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Very low key and laid back. Interview took place on folding chairs in the tire shop.The store manager conducted the interview and did not try to use trick questions, he just wanted to find out if i could perform the job, and if i would be a good employee for the company.

    Stock Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Centerville, IA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Orscheln Farm and Home (Centerville, IA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Meet with a manager and assistant manager, who are playing "good cop/bad cop". You get drilled with the whole "gotta keep the store clean, gotta keep the shelves stocked, gotta keep working every minute of every day" thing. The two of them asked questions of me, then tried to get me to contradict what I had said. It was almost like they didn't want to be there, and they did their best to make me feel like I wasn't wanted there, really.

    Interview Questions

    • "What benefit will the company see if they hire someone like you?"   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There wasn't one. They said they were "bound" by the company's guidelines as to what they could offer in wages.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Orscheln Farm and Home (Cresco, IA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Very interesting and detailed from a very experienced district manager. The district manager took his own time to come to my location in person to find out if I would be interested in the position as a store manager for Orschelns in Perry, Iowa. So I accepted, but it has been very hard on my family being apart for over a year. I moved a store from an old location to a new location in the same town. Did a grand opening, everything is good, but not enough labor hours to hire people to do all the jobs.

    Interview Questions

    • Where would you prefer to be located.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Strict, but I had the qualifications to meet my request.
