    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Shelby, OH
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cooper Industries (Shelby, OH) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Short, quick, and to the point. There were two people interviewing me, the head of HR and the head of Accounting. Both were asking simple and expected questions, but wanted very detailed answers. Everyone was extremely polite and helpful. I turned down the job for personal reasons.
