    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PoolCorp.

    Interview

    I was recruited at a job fair in Orlando, FL. the recruiter took my information and about a week later I got a call back. first was a phone interview. pretty much just telling me about the position and what working for PoolCorp entailed. Willing to relocate is a requirement for the MIT fast track program. After that round, about three weeks later I went in for a formal interview with a Regional Manager in the Orlando area. after about a week, HR called and told me I got the job. two weeks later I was on a plane to Dallas, TX for training.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PoolCorp (Pittsburgh, PA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    The recruiter contacted me and conducted a phone screen. Questions about the company seemed to be especially emphasized. The recruiter seemed realistic and polite. A few weeks later there is a one on one interview with a district manager. Again many questions on experience and the company knowledge.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PoolCorp (Covington, LA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    I found the company on a university posting site. I applied and was refered to an upcoming career fair. After the fair I followed up with the recruiter over the phone for 2 interviews, an additional interview with a divisional manager and finally an interview with the branch manager. The process took a while but was pretty straight forward. I wish it would have been quicker and more transparent but it got the job done. Prior to hire I took a drug screen and post hire I took a personality test. Recruiter was knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful.

    Manager In Training Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PoolCorp (Denver, CO) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Generally it will be an initial phone interview with an HR recruiter followed by multiple interviews at a sales center location with either a general manager, regional manager, branch manager or sometimes both. The phone interview is your standard professional HR interview. The in person interviews are much less formal and sometimes the managers just shoot from the hip with questioning. DO NOT WEAR A TIE. Wear a polo. Suit and tie will be frowned upon.

    Interview Questions

    • Behavioral questions. Entrepreneurial spirit is very important.   Answer Question
