    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at American Woodmark in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had a first round interview on my school's campus and then was emailed (i think- might have been called) for a second round interview where they paid for me to drive to Cumberland MD, and stay in a hotel the night before. The interview was a tour of the facility, interview with management and then question and answers with someone who had just been through the training process.

    Software Developer Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Winchester, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Winchester, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at American Woodmark.

    Interview Details

    They started by giving me a detailed tour of the building, introducing me to people along the way. I took a sort of IQ test on a computer. I then met with three separate managers for one hour each, they all asked me pretty much the same questions (got pretty tedious!) and talked a lot about the process of cabinet making. They paid for my lunch and travel (ended up being quite a lot since I live kind of far away) and got back to me quickly. They gave me my offer over the phone, very nice, and unexpected touch.

    Interview Questions
    • Very run of the mill questions, "Tell me about yourself", "Where do you see yourself in 5 years?", etc..   Answer Question

    IT Support Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Humboldt, TN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Humboldt, TN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at American Woodmark.

    Interview Details

    I had four separate interviews and that included the Plant leadership team as well as others from Corporate. The company did not pay for my travel going to the interview. After completing all interviews, it took them 3 months to select a candidate. Once selected, the company sends you to Winchester, VA for a week for orientation. After orientation, the company makes you complete an on-boarding process in which you have to pay for initially before getting reimbursed. The amount is around $500+ so make sure you are not broke before you get hired.

    Interview Questions
    • Some technical questions coming from the corporate team are strange but if you have experience, you can get through them.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They do not give a lot of room to negotiate. With all the different systems the company requires you to know, one would think that they'd offer about 15% -20% more.

    COD Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Moorefield, WV
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at American Woodmark in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    First communication was when I stopped by their booth at a career fair and they set me up for a next-day interview. The first interview was pretty relaxed. Questions were very conversational and I don't remember there being any behavioral questions. It was me and two other interviewers: one a little older and one recently graduated from college. Two days later, I was invited for an on-site interview which would take place about 6 weeks later. The on-site interview was in a small town in WV, and I had to make a 6 hour drive there because there was no airport nearby. The interview itself lasted about 45 minutes, then there was a tour of the plant, and then a Q&A session with a former COD program participant. The interview was incredibly simple and no questions that would reflect any sort of talent or work ethic were asked. I was very disappointed that I spent 12 hours total travelling for about 2 hours spent at the plant. It was a huge waste of my time and I was unimpressed by the experience overall.

    Cod Training Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cumberland, MD
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at American Woodmark in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I got an on campus interview from a career fair. It was with a plant manager and current cod. It was very easy, pretty much just went over my résumé. I was invited to an onsite interview in Cumberland md. We flew into dc and had to drive 2.5 hours to get to the hotel. The interview consisted of a plant tour, two on one interview and a q&a with hr and former cod. The two on one was relaxed with no unexpected questions. I didn't get much of a chance to ask questions in the q&a because they talked most of the time. I was looking for a job in a larger city with a higher salary.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at American Woodmark in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had 2 interviews in total. One on campus and one at their plant in WV. I would say both were fairly straightforward and the company represents a very family oriented culture.

    Interview Questions
    • I dont remember specific questions, most of them are similar to what the people say over here. I would just say be yourself. They tell you in advance that they dont negotiate so just say ok and go from there, they will take into account your background before making an offer. It is usually mid-mid range.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate because I did not have any other offers.
