    Accounting Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Maria, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Maria, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at C&D Zodiac in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for the position. I was called for an interview. I was unable to make it to that interview appointment and the employer was kind enough to reschedule the interview to the following week when I called and reported my situation on the day of the interview. The interview itself was a realistic job preview, including the history of C&D Zodiac, their current situation, job duties, time requirements, and a tour of the facility. I was informed of the hiring process and the length of time likely before the company would schedule second interviews, including the notification process. I have not yet completed the hiring process and I do not yet know if I will be called back for a second interview. Accordingly, the answer to the offer question below may change.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ontario, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ontario, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at C&D Zodiac in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview was last minute. Threw together in 1 day, I had to review all the questions as well get ready for a 2 hr interview. Interview process asked questions FAR outside what is required. In the end they liked me, but stated that needed to hire another person in place. That was nearly 6 weeks ago with zero return in calls or update. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS LOCATION.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at C&D Zodiac.

    Interview Details

    Met at a campus career fair, didn't have any previous knowledge of the company. The recruiter took my resume and I heard back in a couple weeks about coming in for an on-site interview. They gave me a tour of their main facility in Huntington Beach and I had a brief one on one interview with the same guy who recruited me. Really relaxed interview almost entirely about my resume and past experience. Only about 30 minutes long. Got an offer via email a couple weeks later. Very friendly company, albeit quite small, with an open atmosphere for employees.
