    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Suburban Propane (Syracuse, NY) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The process was very brief as I have a lot of customer service in my background.I didn't have call center experience though. I will say that there was a huge focus on the attendance policy. I was told that even if I am going to be a minute late I have to let the employer know.

    Interview

    Contact was by phone to set up a personal interview. Directions and a confirmation are emailed. The HR department is in a separate building and you are first screened and questioned by a recruiter there. If you pass that you are sent to the main building to meet with various managers from the department you are applying to. Everyone is very team oriented. A little nerve racking waiting in the lobby to be seen.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Suburban Propane in October 2009.

    Interview

    I was called by an HR member who found my resume on Monster. He gave me a bout a 20 minute phone interview and then invited me to a one day panel interview to be held at a local hotel a few days later. The panel interview consisted of 2 different panels with 3 interviewers each. You only advanced to the second interview if the panel decided you 'passed' the first one. The second panel asked more precise questions about experience related to the job and also 'what would you do' type questions. They presented a sample one page P&L document and asked if I knew what that was and whether or not I could go over it with them on a surface level. Finally after I passed that I was directed to still another room where a series of skills assessments were conducted on a computer. Skills were basic business math and also Excel. A personality test was also given.... A few days later I was offered the job!

    Interview Questions

    • Do you know what this P& L statement is? Can you tell us what line X is used for and whether or not it is positive to the company's bottom line or negative?   Answer Question
