    I have been working at ScanSource full-time (More than 5 years)


    -The people you work with are awesome, they make coming to work more fun
    -Lots of perks like a gym, cafe, fitness classes, nice campus, and many times free food
    -You gain a lot of experience


    -No clear path upward to management...or none at all
    -Seems like you need to work there at least 8 years before being considered for a management level promotion
    -The workload is VERY heavy, they recognize your good work as a an opportunity to give you more work without increasing pay or changing your job title.

    Advice to Management

    -Create more management layers and give your employees more than just a cost of living raise
    -If you can't afford to give a raise, try providing other non-monetary benefits like increased time off or work-from-home options

    Account Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greenville, SC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ScanSource (Greenville, SC) in April 2016.


    I didn't apply for anything. I filled out a general job application on their website. Was called a week later about the Account Analyst position. Phone interview was about 10 minutes. Basic questions about my resume and brief info about financial stuff. Very easy. Was asked to come in a week later for an in person interview. I was excited. I came in 30 minutes early before my scheduled interview. I waited over an hour for my interview after my interview was supposed to have started. Apparently no one knew I was supposed to be interviewed and the guy interviewing me took that day off. I was speechless. Eventually, two guys interviewed me but they weren't prepared for it at all. Random interview questions were asked and everything was not organized. Overall, I know I answered all the questions correctly because I pretty much know a lot about financial statements, how to read them, what to look for, and so on. After the interview with the two men, they told me to stay put so they can find other people to interview me. I was so confused at this point. Why are they trying to find other people to interview me, AGAIN!? 5 minutes later, I was told I was done and that I could go home.

    I felt good about the interview but the whole process and making me wait gave me a negative impression on what was originally a positive take on the company. For a company that many college graduates wants to work for, they sure are sloppy and unprofessional. It's been over a month now and they haven't even contacted me if I got the job or not. But it doesn't matter anymore, I've found a job that has better benefits and a HIGHER starting pay. Good luck to whoever wants to work at ScanSource. Oh yeah, they're a flat/horizontal organization. That means if you are looking for a career advancement, this isn't the place for you. Just work there for experience then go somewhere else where you can move up the ladder.
