    Purchasing Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at CertainTeed in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Filled out application on-line for position. Took them about 1-2 months to call me. Got an invite to virtual interview. Downloaded app for Interview Stream to phone. Signed on with password and got to first screen and app froze. This was the case with the whole process it was very frustrating. Was a total of 6 questions and a banner covered questions you really couldn't see whole question. I reloaded app and it crashed. Finally finished all questions (So I thought) and completed interview. Left message with HR person and he said oh the app for the phone doesn't work well. You need to use your computer and it needs to be an updated one or it will not work.

    This is a way to weed out who they don't want. Who can afford an updated computer with all updated equipment if you don't have the money?

    Architectural Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Valley Forge, PA
    Anonymous Employee in Valley Forge, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at CertainTeed in May 2009.

    Interview Details

    I received a phone call from a very nice person at CertainTeed headquarters in Valley Forge, PA. She talked to me about my background, my expectations of this job, etc. She also gave me a very good idea of what the hiring process was. After a couple of weeks, the same person called to set up a face-to-face interview with the area manager.
    I met the regional manager in the lobby of an area hotel. He was running a little late. Once we started talking, he asked about my experience selling to area architects. He also asked me in-depth about my current job duties. He explained very completely what the duties of this job entailed and explained that the final 3 people who were being considered would be flown to Valley Forge headquarters for an interview there. He also was very clear on the time line of filling the job.
    I did not hear from them about whether I was one of the 3 finalists. I finally phoned my initial contact in HR and found out that I was not among them.

    Construction Science Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at CertainTeed in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    I recently graduated. I was contacted by certainteed and asked if I would be interested in an interview for this position. We had a phone interview less than a week later. The interview was brief and ended with the hiring manager telling me that if I was hired, I would be required to attend 14 weeks of training in PA. After the training is over there is no guarantee of where in the country I would end up. I was reluctant to proceed after hearing that, however the next day I called back and told them that I was still willing to proceed with the opportunity. I was then asked to do a personality test online. After that, I did not hear anything back for about a month. Then I got a call and was told the position was filled.
