    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Amherst, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Amherst, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Columbus McKinnon.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Amherst, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Columbus McKinnon.

    Interview Details

    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.

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

    General Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.   View Answer
