- No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 5 days – interviewed at Benjamin Moore (Montvale, NJ) in February 2015.
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.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at Benjamin Moore in January 2015.
My interview was rescheduled several times. When I was finally seen, the hiring manager had a member of her team that had been there for a week interview me because she was busy. She couldn't tell me anything about the company or my potential boss.

- No OfferNeutral ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week – interviewed at Benjamin Moore (Montvale, NJ) in July 2014.
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.
- Questions were straightforward and Technical. Answer Question
- Accepted Offer
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at Benjamin Moore.
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.
- The old standby about how do you think your past experiences will help Benjamin Moore. lAs I said - nothing new or unique! Answer Question
Helpful (1)No OfferEasy Interview
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Benjamin Moore (Montvale, NJ).
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.

interviewed at Benjamin Moore (Rochester, NY) in May 2014.
Short interview talk mostly of past experiences. We spent what short time we did primarily going over my resume. I thought I did alright but i think I over shot the salary question.

- 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.

I applied online. The process took 4+ months – interviewed at Benjamin Moore (Gary, IN) in April 2014.
It was smooth and a comfortable move. Human Resources internally, outside recruiter support, hiring manager, and market director were all professional and very knowledgeable about the job at hand.
