    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wolseley in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was smooth. My interviewer asked about past work experience, but also wanted to know more about me as a person, my family, and personal interest. The interview was more like a friendly conversation. I was also given a lot of information about Wolseley and how company operates and its benefits.

    Management Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Wolseley in April 2007.

    Interview

    Met the company at a job fair where there was a pre-screen with HR. After that there was a 1:1 with Regional HR and a reference check. After that there was a 1:1 with Market-level management and finally a 1:1 with District Manager.

    Open email communication with the regional HR manager that I was working with.

    Perceptions were good, everyone was a straight-shooter and there weren't any of the 'interview games'.

    As with any job interview -- be confident, be prepared, prove that you want it.
