    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in West Palm Beach, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Topco Associates (West Palm Beach, FL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    You go through either a recruiter or staffing agency, The Director will call you on the phone and speak with you briefly, then if they like you then you are asked to come in for a face to face. As you are interviewing, they show you only the good side ( of course ) but once you are there, it is a VERY DIFFERENT STORY.

    Strategic Sourcing Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Quincy, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Topco Associates (Quincy, MA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Two casual interviews, both with associates, both 30 min long, both asked questions just based off my resume. In the Quincy office, they have no HR, so associates conduct interviews.

    Their Quincy office is in a nice office park on a hill, and they are situated on the third floor of their building with a great view of Boston.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Topco Associates (Quincy, MA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    one in person interview and talked to multiple people. It was a simple interview with basic questions. Nothing that would question your skill level or make you take some type of test or present anything. I spoke with two managers and they were both very friendly. The interviews lasted a total of four hours but did not seem that long. It was a pleasant experience overall.

    Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Topco Associates (Elk Grove Village, IL).

    Interview

    Their interviewing process is extremely slow and they ended up going with internal candidate. Disappointed since it felt like I was strung along for over a month. My background and interviews went great so it felt like a obligatory move to go with someone internal.

    Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Topco Associates (Elk Grove Village, IL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    3 stage process- phone interview, interview with manager, interview with director and divisional president.

    The interview process was straightforward but the manager had unrealistic expectations for the role, especially for the salary offer.

    I think the company could improve its hiring process by being more transparent about the timing of the interview process, limiting their expectations to a realistic industry standard, and communicating with candidates consistently.

    Management Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Topco Associates (Skokie, IL) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Interesting interview process. I received a call from a friend who told me they were looking for outsiders to join the management ranks. Later the same week I was contacted and asked if I was interested in interviewing for the job. I interviewed with the hiring manager and another manager. Follow up interview the following week and then with HR VP. Offered and accepted the next week.

    Interview Questions

    • My interview was more of a discussion than a question and answer session. There were a few " how do you propose we change" questions that were difficult not knowing a lot about the internal structure.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Some negotiation. Salary seemed pretty fixed, with some latitude on start dates, transition timing, bonus payouts, etc..
