Inside Sales Interview

Inside Sales
Roseville, MN (US)

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Ferguson Enterprises in November 2013.

Interview Details Applied via LinkedIn during the beginning of Sept, heard back a week and a half later. First step was an online video recorded interview. Cool process as you can re-answer your question as many times as you'd like before submitting it. Basic procedural questions, ie. how you handled certain situations. Two weeks later I was invited to a phone interview scheduled the next week. They asked a lot of the same questions as the online recorded sessions. Was informed I'd know within the next two weeks if I'd be invited to the next step. HAD TO EMAIL THEM AFTER 2 1/2 WEEKS where I was informed I was invited to to their regional recruiting session at a Ferguson location. Cool. They paid for my Hotel and any expenses involved in the trip to their location. They even flew in other candidates from out of state. They quite literally rolled out the red carpet for us. The last step in the interview process was a basic introduction and "Thank You", followed by a tour of the Ferguson warehouse and Showroom, dinner with Ferguson Managers and the President of the company, with three rapid-fire interviews the following day with folks you met at Dinner. After the final 3 interviews, you are informed of another 2wk waiting time, in which you will either get an offer or a "Thank you for you interest in..." email. From start to finish, the process took almost 3 months. My region's starting salary was 48k, but considering the 50/hr/wk requirement, it was pretty low. Benefits are what you'd expect from a billion-dollar company; pretty good, nothing amazing.

Interview Question – None of the questions were overly difficult. Heck, McDonalds asks the same questions. The only main factor that makes them hard is who asks them, the head honcho's of the company. This can be very intimidating.   Answer Question

Development Program Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Washington, DC (US)

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Ferguson Enterprises in October 2013.

Interview Details First I had a video interview with mainly behavioral questions. This was very helpful because you got to rerecord your answers before submitting them. About two weeks later I got a phone called asking to do a phone interview. This was about 30-40 minutes of behavioral questions. Not too bad at all pretty easy. Because I started my job search pretty early I will have to wait until January to see if I will be getting called in for an onsite interview. So this process is taking a long time but I think that is because I started my search early.

Interview Question – Really nothing too hard. Just name a time when you have to persuade someone of something threw me off a little.   Answer Question
