    Management Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Armstrong World Industries.

    Interview Details

    I had two phone interviews before a half day in-person interview at the work location. In-person interviews were panel/group and then a 1:1 with the manager of the work site.

    Interview Questions
    • I knew I'd wasted my time when the work location manager started his interview asking me why I would be interested in the job given all my years of experience and previously higher salary.

      This is code for "why would I want to hire someone your age?." If the company does not want to hire older workers (I'm 46), reject them early in the process vs. insulting the candidate in the final round.

    Interview Details

    I wouldn't waste my time on a company that doesn't respect potential candidates enough to notify them of their decision. After 2 phone interviews, 2 site visits, and a follow up call with add'l questions, I've haven't heard anything but I noticed the position has been reposted.

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lancaster, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lancaster, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Armstrong World Industries in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    After filling out the very involved online application in mid-July I received a phone call from an HR person. Was asked a series of questions concerning salary requirements and references and set up an interview time. First interview (late July) was actually 5 individual meetings. First with the HR contact in the main building (corporate headquarters – very sterile and unwelcoming in my opinion). This was followed by 3 separate meetings with individual managers in another building. The last meeting was with a second HR representative. The interviews with HR seemed very methodical and disengaged. The interviews with the managers were impromptu but the people were very nice and knowledgable. I left the interview confident I would get a call back. Which didn't happen until almost a month later when a new HR person called me (the original had left for another company) to set up a 2nd interview in late August. I met with two additional managers (in separate buildings) and was informed that HR would be in touch. 20 days later I found out there was a split decision between myself and another candidate who got the job offer. But HR never contacted me. I was told by one of the manager's I interviewed with. I had my suspicions about large corporations being overly bureaucratic and slow to act but this process (over 2 months) was almost unbearable. And the fact that 3 product managers involved with this position reside in entirely different buildings doesn't seem to foster much of a collaborative environment.
