LaFrance Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Very Easy Interview
Applications Developer Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at LaFrance in February 2008.
Interview Details – Applied to job posting online. Company HR got in touch with me within 24 hours to set up a time for an on-site interview. During interview, met with HR person, immediate supervisor and department director. I expected to be grilled about my technical experience and answer sample questions posed by the hiring manager however none of that was brought up. Interview questions mostly consisted of usual "Tell me about youself"/"What are you looking for in this position" type of questions. The people were very professional and courteous during the interview.
Interview Question – Nothing asked during interview was unusual. Consisted of typical tell me about yourself type of questions. View Answer
Negotiation Details – Effortlessly raised the starting salary by 6k by stating that the original salary offered was far less than what was being given on the job market. Gave statistics to backup claim by citing industry recognized salary survey.
