    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Johns Manville.

    Interview Details

    This was a phone interview and was the initial screening interview. I had applied to Johns Manville through their online system. For the most part it was a review of my background, but there were a few behavioral type interview questions included.

    Employee Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Johns Manville in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Hiring manager was very genuine and a pleasure to interview with. Everyone else was either cold or acted as though they were uninterested in the interview or had no idea what they should talk about in the interview. The entire process - from the online application to the last step - was over 4 months. They do take their time! The company seems like a very good outfit. I rated this interview as "Difficult" because it took such a long time, and because several people I was to interview with were obviously unprepared, perhaps even caught off-guard and had no idea how to interview a candidate.

    Interview Questions
    • "What do you want to talk about with HR?" (Really? You set up this interview - don't you have any idea yourself?)   Answer Question

    Marketing Assistant/Technical Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Johns Manville in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Overall, the interview process took about a month. After I sent in my application, I heard back from a recruiter within a week and scheduled a phone interview for the following week. After our twenty minute phone conversation, I was contacted once again (from a different recruiter) who scheduled my in-person interview at the Denver headquarters. During that interview I was interviewed one-on-one by three different people in the department, for thirty minutes each. The questions asked were pretty standard interview questions, which I had previously prepared for.

    Interview Questions
    • While there weren't many unexpected questions, I was surprised to learn I wouldn't be talking with the head of the Marketing department at the end of interview. I was under the impression s/he would want to meet me towards the end of the interview (based on something each of the three interviewers had mentioned previously), but that never happened.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Johns Manville in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    It was a longer interview process (application, first interview, and three interviews on site the same day) but everyone was extremely nice and the site in Littleton was cool to tour after interviews. Each interviewer had their own different set of questions although most were very general form questions. Interviewers were also very excited to let you know more about Johns Manville and show off products. A long but fun process.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Johns Manville in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    Received a call from a company-affiliated recruiter to interview for a production/ process position; after a phone interview with Plant manager, company paid to fly to Toledo for the interview, car rental, expenses. Interview went well - people were friendly, and did a good job of answering my questions and explaining the job.
    Received re-imbursement from company for interview, but in spite of following up repeatedly via paper mail, e-mail, and phone calls, never heard another word from the company - no thank-you letter, no rejection.....nothing.
