    Marketing Communications Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Montvale, NJ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Benjamin Moore (Montvale, NJ) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and almost immediately got an email from the HR recruiter for a phone interview. The initial phone screen interview lasted about an hour and was much more in depth than what I was told the interview was going to cover. Was incredibly uncomfortable and unfair. The HR screen interview should cover the basics and then when you meet with the people who are actually working on the team, the hard questions should come out. Very disappointed.

    Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Benjamin Moore (Montvale, NJ) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Interview was with Hiring Manager right away. There was not the typical interview with HR that larger organizations have. The comments about the turnover in the organization posted by others and the multiple CEO changes were confirmed in the interview.

    The role was interesting and there seems to be some opportunity.

    Some research about the organization led me to believe that there is a lot of young blood there. As someone who is young as well, this seemed promising. Although after my interview and more analysis of the situation, I don't feel that that would be a fit.

    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Benjamin Moore.

    Interview

    Average hiring process. Spoke to 4 stakeholders plus HR person. Nothing particularly interesting or insightful about the interview. Definitely got the feeling they were trying to get younger skewed (or at least fresher blood) staff. They were definitely not interested in negotiating salary or benefits. There were a few false starts and stops and I came away feeling the organization was a bit more confused than a first look lead me to believe.

    Staff Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Montvale, NJ
    No Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Benjamin Moore (Montvale, NJ).

    Interview

    They brought me in for 1:1 interview with hiring manager back in December, group interview with 3 people in January, turned me down. Contacted my agent in March for similar position stating they are still very interested in me, brought me in again for 1:1 interview in April, then group interview with 3 people in May, turned me down again. These people do not make any sense. All management is fairly new and seems like have no clue what they are doing.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any because it was standard stuff, what have you been doing, why interested, what is your skill set, do you understand the job, what qualifies you....   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Because they lied and offered, than re-nigged on offer, then accused me, horrifying experience. They don't like people wanting to know options before going in. I don't get that. Why not be able to ask questions about any perks and clarification and challenging the low salary? One must know what one is walking into.
