    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montvale, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montvale, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Benjamin Moore in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    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

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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 Interview Candidate in Montvale, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montvale, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Benjamin Moore.

    Interview Details

    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.

    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.

    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.

    MANY rounds of short meetings that didn't get to the heart of the role or day-to-day. It was easy to get through, but not really a good way for either side to see if it would be a fit.

    They were not very friendly or open to negotiation. Promises made by HR in the negotiation (but not put explicitly in writing) were NOT UPHELD.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montvale, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Benjamin Moore.

    Interview Details

    There was no pre-screening with HR, nor was I given any advance information about the company, benefits or the position - I was just scheduled for interviews.
    I met with 3 different people. All just kept their eye on the clock and kept reminding me I only had 1/2 hour with them. One didn't seem pleased to know that I had not met with HR.One spent half the interview trying to tell me why they joined Benjamin and how happy they were to be there. One person just kept yawning throughout the entire interview - didn't even try to cover it up or apologize for his behavior.
