    Interview

    Working through a recruiter, I began with a phone interview with the recruiter. That phone interview was followed by two more phone interviews, one with the VP of Central Materials (hiring manager) and the other with the Director of Supply Chain HR. I was invited to travel to corporate HQ to interview with multiple people, including the VP Central Materials, Director Supply Chain HR, the CEO, the SVP of Supply Chain and SVP of HR. The interviews were positive, but everything went quiet. After stringing my along almost two months, they finally admitted the open position had been withdrawn and they decided not to fill the opening this year.

    When an opening arises, BLY requires an application to be filled out. Many of our candidates come through recruiting firms. It may or may not be helpful to know someone on the team before the interview process begins. Most of the questions will probe for your prior experience with the systems you will be supporting, and your technical and functional knowledge. You will be interviewed by the hiring managers and also the peers on the team you will be working with. They will assess your technical abilities, fit, attitude and ability to communicate.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Boart Longyear (Salt Lake City, UT) in October 2009.

    Interview

    Received an invitation for a pre-screen phone interview with the HR Manager. Standard behavioral based questions about your career. This then setup a phone interview with the hiring manager. Received and email from an HR Associate setting up the date and time and who with. The time came around and noone called me. I sent an email and made a phone call to the person in HR but didn't hear anything. Then, I sent an email to the person that I would be interviewing with. Next day, I received a response and was told that I was suppose to be interviewing with another hiring manager. I finally setup another phone interview and proceeded with it. I waited for probably 15 minutes after the time they were suppose to call me and call the HR Associate to let them know that noone had called me again. Within 5 minutes, I was on the phone with the hiring manager. By this, I wasn't very impressed with the people that I was corresponding with. They were looking for someone with an extensive technical background in design more than manufacturing. The were really looking for someone that could interpret the designs to the supplier.
