    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Crown Equipment (Akron, OH) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Very turned off. Interview started with 3 people in a hotel lobby, all 3 people seemed unprepared for the interview and one of the 3 people were not even asking questions. Also, I was planning on 30 -45 minute interview and after they asked me to complete an hour long test! Complete joke, the test was redundant and asked the same questions dozens and dozens of times over again along with math formulas. I ended up just clicking to get through, 161 questions. Finally they gave me a urine cup and told me that if they called me I would have to take a drug screening. Seemed like a circus and clown show and I hope they don't call me. Interview for me was a waste of time and uninformative.

    Interview Questions

    • there was no difficult question, it was a sincere conversation   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I got an offer way below the amount I was expecting, so I've asked for what I was expecting, and justified what I was asking, and they accepted it, most probably because it was for a temp position.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Crown Equipment in September 2013.

    Interview

    I was given a phone interview which lasted about 20 minutes or so. The hiring manager seemed nice enough, but a little impatient. I was asked about my job history, why I was looking for a new position, etc. She asked when I could start and I told her that I would like to give 2 weeks notice, and then be onsite. She said she was fine with that, but that she did not like it when someone told her they needed a month. Afterwards the recruiter from told me that they wanted to do an onsite interview.
    The following week I was called by the recruiter and he seemed very anxious to get me onsite within a few days. I told him that even though my current contract was supposed to end within a few months that I could not interview that week because the company had just gone live with SAP, and I needed to be onsite for support. Next Crown's HR department called me to discuss times for the onsite interview. I ASKED when was the latest that I could come onsite for an interview, but still keep a chance at being hired. She said that the following week(11 days later) would be fine. She told me that she would email me with a list of possible flight times.
    I have not heard back from her or the recruiter. And the position has been reposted. My gut feeling is that the hiring manager is so impatient that she decided to toss me aside to look for another candidate. I think that she was more interested in getting a body onsite, rather than finding the most qualified candidate.

    Office Cleaning Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Crown Equipment (New Bremen, OH) in August 2010.

    Interview

    3 people panel to interview in front of. NEVER turn down a offer from Crown, they only offer once. If you turn down a offer, they will not hire you, ever. They asked a lot of questions and look for people desperate enough to tolerate the horrible management that plagues Crown's cleaning services. If you flatter them enough in your interview i.e. praise of the town, company and ask enough questions, they will likely hire you. Interviewing for cleaning does NOT require that you know or are related to someone, but to leave this department you do need these things.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you feel about the possibility of being promoted to supervision?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Nothing is negotiable at this level, heavy cleaning starts at 12/hr and office cleaning starts at 8/hr. Heavy cleaners top at 17/hr after 18 months and cleaners top at 10/hr after 9 months.
