    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MBS Textbook Exchange in April-2017.

    Interview

    Fairly informal, I talked a recruiter at a job fair, told her I was looking for a summer internship. A week later I got a call and came in for an interview. At the interview we went over my resume. After a couple weeks without a response I emailed them. They called me the next day and offered me the internship.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MBS Textbook Exchange (Columbia, MO (US)) in May-2017.

    Interview

    I had two interviews. First one was with an HR employee, it was very straightforward, was more a review of the company, why I applied, if I would be a good fit for the position. Second interview was with a supervisor and employee, this was more of them asking me questions. Fairly basic interview questions for the most part. Very nice people though, and really easy to talk to.

    Interview Questions

    Account Manager Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at MBS Textbook Exchange (Columbia, MO (US)) in May-2012.

    Interview

    The interview process was a bit more tedious than it needed to be. At first I thought that they were doing their due diligence, but soon realized they were just a bit unorganized. After my phone interview, I came in for a face to face. I was interviewed by a total of 4 people. That is not too weird except they all interviewed me separately back to back. The entire ordeal took about 2 hours and by the end of it I was thirsty and hungry. All of that didn't really bother me except they all asked the same questions over and over. I would have much more preferred a panel if they felt that all the people needed to be involved to make an informed decision.

    Systems Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at MBS Textbook Exchange (Columbia, MO (US)) in March-2009.

    Interview

    Interviewing process is usually two steps. The first will be with HR. The HR department is wonderful and honestly a pleasure to talk to. They are very good at assessing what jobs you might do well at and if they like you, will often look for another position for you if you do not get the one you originally applied for.

    The second interview will usually be with the manager you will be working under and possibly with the director of the department. This interview will usually be more technical in nature and will specifically apply to the job you are applying for. Depending on who interviews you, the questions can range from cooperate culture type questions to work ethic questions and almost always there will be a few customer support related questions, specifically "how would you deal with X" type questions.

    Interview Questions

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MBS Textbook Exchange (Columbia, MO (US)) in October-2009.

    Interview

    I applied online. I was called in for an interview with human resources within a day of placing the application. The human resources professional seemed very nice. He asked me about my qualifications while he reviewed my resume, and why I was interested in the position. He then told me that I would probably be bored, and asked if I was sure I wanted to interview for this position. I respectfully said that yes, I would. He gave me a short overview of the position, the benefits and the wage, and proceeded to set up the interview with the hiring manager.

    I met with the hiring manager a few days later. The manager was very respectful, knowledgeable and nice (no longer with the company). The manager asked for details on my qualifications, explained the job in more detail, and asked about how I handle stress and multitasking.

    I was offered the position about a week or two later, however, the salary was lower than previously discussed.
