    Dispatcher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irwindale, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Vulcan Materials (Irwindale, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I went to the first interview which seemed to go well. Panel of three, all very nice and made me feel comfortable. Heard nothing for about three weeks and then called back for a second interview with another panel of three. It seemed very promising. I was told that I would hear back from them by Wednesday (5 days). It has now been going on three weeks and I have heard nothing. If they would have followed up with an email stating I did not get the position, I would have given the overall experience a thumbs up. That is the least a company can do after taking the time to interview twice. I did find that many of the employees there have at least 15 years with the company which is a good sign.

    Interview Questions

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Vulcan Materials (Weatherford, TX) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Did a pretty in depth telephone screening about 3 ,weeks after submitting resume. Was invited in for an interview following week. Was impressed by mutual respect of mgmt team and the high regard they held for their direct reports. Is a large Corp. But decentralized such that it functions as a family business at local level. Was offered job day after interview. Salary a little on the low side but I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt that rewards will follow performance

    Interview

    Was held at the main office in Irwindale with the operations manager, sales manager and dispatch manager with a representative with human resources on conference call. The operations manager was the person who I would answer to so he did most of the questioning and the sales manager asked questions about my customer interactions and familiarity with particular companies. Very low key and semi-informal. The HR rep only asked one question. The whole interview lasted approximately a half hour.
