    Computer Operator I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tempe, AZ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Avnet (Tempe, AZ) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Interviewed with Operations Manager and he was fantastic. Took his time to explain
    the operations department function and its customer service goals which they are proud of. I was also impressed by his job description for the position but understood that no one could come into a company knowing all functions without having a learning curve. His only expectation was to have a candidate who was willing to learn and adapt to change.
