    Supply Chain Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ProBuild (Denver, CO) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Process took 3 weeks. Applied online and received a phone call from the Recruiter the next day. Had a quick phone interview with the Recruiter and the next week a phone interview with the Hiring Manager. Made it to the on-site interview 2.5 weeks later. Interview was 3 hours long. 1:1 interviews with Hiring Manager, another Manager and VP of the Dept. Pretty casual/conversational interviews until the final interview. They were very intimidating, asked questions I felt were irrelevant and that set me up for failure. Asked me a "case question" (never had one of these before). Case was that I created a bulb to go in a lamp that was brighter and lasted longer than ones on the market. I was in Canada. What was my revenue going to be the first year. This is literally the only info he gave me. Had no clue where to go with this and he did reiterate he wanted a number. Then asked me to tell them a joke. Then at the end of the interview handed me a laptop with a large data set. Said I had 5 minutes to try to answer 3 questions about the data set and proceeded to watch me over my shoulder. There was no way to complete the analysis in 5 minutes let alone with someone hovering over you watching. Overall it was a horrible experience. Never felt so small in an interview before until this one.

    Field Position Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at ProBuild.

    Interview

    It was an average interview and they made me an offer. What happened after the offer is what was negative. They have a blanket exclusion if anything is found in your background check. They don't give you the chance to explain and/or dispute the accuracy of the background check. They immediately revoke their offer before you have the chance to dispute their findings.

    Interview

    Three consecutive interviews in person after a phone interview. Good strong interviewers. More a personality fit interview than a skills interview. Actually had a good time. The dept manager was friendly and welcoming. The other interviewers were also friendly and inviting. Made the two way conversation much easier to perform.

    Met with Store Manager and District Manager. Interview went smoothly as I was familiar with the company. They went over the expectations of the position and what I could expect in compensation.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at ProBuild.

    Interview

    Streamlined and easy. Met with management and signed a contract the same day. Afterwards trying to be implemented in the system was somewhat atrocious. Eventually everything smoothed out and any issues usually revolve around dysfunctional management.
