    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Clorox (Alpharetta, GA).

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter for an initial screening.After answering all the questions they had , I was asked for a second interview . I was then asked for an in person interview. However I was out of state which is something I had mentioned to everyone I spoke with. Clorox after asking me to meet them then decided they didn't want someone out of state. After a few emails they agreed to interview me . I flew from Maryland to Georgia which I paid for myself. I met with three women, two of which acted as though they weren't interested from the time I walked in. They asked standard interview questions. One of the women acted very impressed with my knowledge about the position.After about two weeks I still hadn't heard anything. I called and emailed and no one responded. I found out through a friend that worked at the company that they we're finished with the hiring process . I never received my " thank you but no thank you" email. I felt as though the process was very unprofessional and a waste of time and money spent on the flight

    Interview

    Phone screen and in person. In person interview with the BI team was ...... One interviewer was difficult, in effect blackmailing. The interviewer was not a subject matter expert but using other techniques to extract knowledge for themselves. At the end they were convinced of my expertise and it was verbally confirmed. But when I followed up, I received an email stating no job offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Clorox.

    Interview

    The final round of interview consisted of 4 different interviews at the Clorox head quarters in Oakland, CA. There were two technical and two behavioral round. My first was a behavioral interview with a senior manager at Clorox. I felt quite comfortable during this interview and it seemed like a natural conversation to me. I appreciated the interviewer's patient and welcoming attitude. My second interview was a technical interview with a different interviewer. I felt that this interview was quite easy in terms of the technical questions. If you understand basic finance and accounting then this interview would have been easy for as well. My third interview (2nd behavioral) was with an employee who was younger than the other two. Surprisingly, this interview turned out to be pretty hard because I felt that I wasn't having a natural conversation. Moreover, the interviewer seemed unprepared and quite inarticulate. It felt more of an interrogation than an interview. I had the hardest time connecting to this interviewer. My fourth interview (2nd technical) was definitely harder than the first technical but it was still doable. The questions were not as straight forward so they required more critical thinking. The interviewer was willing to bounce off ideas and he encouraged me to think out loud.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Clorox (Alpharetta, GA) in December 2013.

    Interview

    I was contact via a HR rep who invited me in for an initial interview. Once the date and time was established I was sent a confirmation via email with the instructions on how to get to the office and names of the people I would be interviewed by. The initial interview was a group interview. There were several department managers present as well as an Order Management Specialist. Upon arriving to the office and waiting for the interview to begin, one of the interviewers walks you to the conference room where interviews are taken place; you are taken around the office, and able to see people and the office space, as you are led to the conference room. The questions were related to the skills needed for the role as well as related to the morals and values I had. The team was very interested in how I would mesh with possible peers and if I would uphold the values of the company. At one point in the interview, the team had a discussion together, in front of me, before answering the question I had presented. It was nice to see that even in the interview their daily collaboration and influence on one another was present. There were a variety of backgrounds in the room as well as ethnicities. This also showed that the company practiced what they preached and have a diverse work culture.
