    Plant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Seattle, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Arclin in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Through the process of transitioning from military to civilian, I have employed a headhunter to assist in finding a job. Arclin was one of the companies presented by the headhunter's hiring conference. The interview went well. It was more of a conversation than an interview-very laid back. I answered the "tell me about yourself" question and we discussed what the company provided and the position. In the end, the company was looking for more supervision in an industrial environment.

    Logistics Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Arclin in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had three screening interviews. Later, I was invited on site to interview with the FM, Process Supervisor, Logistics Manager, and HR Manager.

    The staff made certain I understood the role of the position and the skills required. Also, they talked about their plans for the future and the skills needed to make those plans happen.

    The team reviewed my resume and had a number of reasonable questions about my skills and abilities. The team spent all morning walking through the plant and making certain I understood I knew what my role was, what was expected, and they took time to ask additional questions during our tour. Also, they allowed ample time for me to ask a lot of questions and they offered detailed answers.

    The team was VERY professional! I enjoyed the process. I felt I was able to share all my skills and they got to tell me everything about the company, the position, their management style, the working conditions, their future needs, and those I would work with.

    The hiring experience AND interview experience was one of the best I had in several years.

    Reasons for Declining

    My family was concerned about the safety aspects for working for a chemical company. Although Arclin has an excellent safety record (I toured the plant and saw for myself they are very safety conscious in every way), I failed to sell my family. Also, the cost of living is very high in OR although they offered a good pay/benefit package. I think if the pay was a "blow me away" one it night have pushed family to approve.
