    Director Continuous Improvement/Lean Leader Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Belden (Saint Louis, MO) in April 2015.

    Interview

    HR screen first, followed by a personality test that tests logic, reasoning and reading comprehension. Followed by phone interview with a member of the team, then a seperate interview with the hiring manager, then the Sales Exec. 4 hour interview with an industrial psychologist was the last step - did not move past this round. Lengthiest process I have ever experienced with any company. Little feedback on how you're doing throughout process and certainly at the end the feedback why I was eliminated was vague with little detail. Very negative experience as the job requirements changed while in the process. I was slated to go in for an interview but was told the CEO decided the candidate should have specific skills not part of the original job post requirements which changed everything and hence made several candidates waste their time. Be cautious if a job has been open for months (mine was open for 6 months) they most likely dont know what theyre doing or what they want in a candidate

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Belden in February 2015.

    Interview

    Screening through recruiter, written answers to list of questions, formal application on website, phone interview. I was initially told by the recruiter the job would not require travel, but during the phone interview I found out this was not the case. I also learned that, although they wanted someone with SAP experience, many of their sites are on a legacy system and that is what I would initially be supporting.

    Vice President Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Belden (Saint Louis, MO) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Standard interview process in person - they relied heavily on computerized and in person testing including a psych exam, IQ and other tests. The process was very fast relatively speaking so you will know where you stand as you move thru the hurdles. Do not underestimate any component - they are very concerned about not having a work life balance. Work is the priority.

    Interview

    Interviewed on campus. Interview questions were all behavioral. Also, asked about resume and background. Not too hard of an interview but looking for experience most of all. Belden has been acquiring companies in the last 8 years and seems like they will have massive growth in the next 5 years.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Belden in October 2013.

    Interview

    I met Belden at our campus recruiting creed fair. Recruiters were nice and friendly throughout the expo. I got selected and called in for an interview the next day on campus. Interview went fairly well. Did not get ask to come back for a 2nd round interview though after receiving a letter in the mail thanking me for taking the time to interview with the company (they made a mistake and said i went to another university in the mail).

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Richmond, IN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Belden (Richmond, IN) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Phone screening - early March Personality testing online - took 2.5 hours Panel Interview in late April - Interview schedule listed three people, only two showed up 15 mins late (didn't apologize for being late) and didn't mention the third person that was suppose to join. The two interviewees shook my hand, told me their names, and launched into the interview without explaining the position or what they were looking for. They never spoke about the position until I asked at the end of the interview. During the interview it felt like a waste of time. I knew I didn't want the position simply because of the culture betrayed during the interview and the rude approach in conducting the interview.

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Clayton, MO
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Belden (Clayton, MO) in January 2012.

    Interview

    The interview was very intricate. I first was interviewed by the staffing agency to assure I was a good fit. I was then offered a 2nd interview with the Hiring Manager. After that second interview my references were contacted. Finally a 3rd interview consists of 4 interviews in one individually where I met with the remaining staff I would support as well as the Executive Assistant above me. It was a very engaging experience, very detailed questions were asked. However they described their work environment as "cold" and "results-oriented" and I believe may have thought I was too "social" for the environment they are accustomed to.

    Leadership Development Program Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Belden (Richmond, IN) in October 2010.

    Interview

    I got this interview through a career fair at school. The first part of the process was an on-campus 1-on-1 interview with a recruiter and was asked standard interview questions: strengths, weaknesses, what I would bring to the position, etc. For the next step I was flown up to a 2-day recruiting event in Indianapolis with about 12 other candidates. We all went out to dinner with candidates and employees and talked with them. Formal interviews were held the next day. There were two rooms, each with a panel of 2-3 interviewers. This interview was mostly a personality profile, they would ask you to talk about your life and then ask questions about it, to learn more about you and your personality and see if you were a good fit for the team. An intelligence test was taken and we went out to dinner again that night with candidates and employees.
