    Purchasing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at TPC Group (Houston, TX) in February 2012.

    Interview

    I initially did a phone interview with an HR-rep and the VP of Purchasing. Both seemed friendly at the time and quite determined to flll the position. However, when I showed up for the actual face to face interview, I was interviewed by four people, and the interview was more like elementary and interrogating in nature. I could tell that they were looking for someone who could do grunge work, clean up messes and make them look good at the end of the day. I found this organization to be very weak in nature and searching for some Pie in the Sky stuff that not even the folks in the interview was capable of. I would suggest that anyone looking at this company, keep looking, not worth the interview or agony of having to sit through it.

    Reasons for Declining

    The oranization seemed to be one that wasn't really sure of itself, and the managers seemed a little sketchy at best. I remember in the iterview process, seemed like they were holding back some improtant details about the job, or their answers to certain questions were "guarded". I just didn't feel comfortable with this company.

    Communications Intern Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at TPC Group (Houston, TX) in March 2009.

    Interview

    My first interview was on campus at the career center. I was interviewed by engineers who had no idea what they were looking for, but that seemed pleased with my resume and GPA. I was later invited to their office in Houston for a second interview. I met separately with the two individuals I would be working with in their communication department. I come from a marketing background, but they seemed to really want someone with more of a communication/PR background and constantly pushed writing skills. I felt as though my interview was just them telling me what I should be and was therefor a complete waste of time.

    I did not get the job, but I felt as though I did not want to work in that environment anyway.
