    Marketing Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Columbus McKinnon (Amherst, NY).

    Interview

    The initial communication included a direct contact on LinkedIn from the recruiter. From here we moved to a series of phone interviews followed by a face to face interview with the recruiter and department manager. The recruiter was very personable and welcoming. She seemed very sincere in everything we discussed and was one of the nicest recruiters I’ve ever been contacted by in my professional career.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Columbus McKinnon (Chicago, IL) in March 2014.

    Interview

    extremely tedious. Many questions asked have no bearing on the job itself. It felt like they are trying to trick you. some of the same questions are asked , just in a different manor. management / interviewer looked " down " on you - they really came across as being better than you.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Columbus McKinnon (Amherst, NY).

    Interview

    Got approached by the HR recruiter. Had phone interview. Then brought onsite for an interview with HR and the hiring manager. Was then invited to complete a Top-Grading Interview online and then onsite. Unfortunately it turns out there was a misrepresentation of the roll and the company, which turned out to be very different from what I was told originally.

    • Top-Grading Interview - very long process! Too many questions to recall.   Answer Question

    General Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Columbus McKinnon.

    Interview

    Initialing screen(s) with recruiter led to phone interview with the hiring manager in Germany, followed by a face to face with the hiring manager and his boss here in the US. All the arrangements were efficient and top knotch, but the interview was a full FOUR months after the phone screen. That would not have been an issue, but the hiring manager claimed in front of his boss that he had talked to me 2 weeks prior. The lie was so outrageous that it beggared belief - he was emphatic about it and even tried to insert details about the phone interview into the interview in front of his boss.

    Interview Questions

    • Hiring manager asked leading questions to "insert" answers to questions into the interview that were not true and did not reflect my qualifications. I have never felt so openly disrespected and sabotaged in an interview. His feedback to the recruiter did not accurately represent the interview - as though he was recounting a different interview with a different person. Had he acted less certain, I might have attributed it to a misunderstanding and confusion, but in this case, there was clearly something else going on and I did not appreciate being drawn into it.   1 Answer
