    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Flowserve.

    Interview

    I was told by the hiring manager that there is a job position open and they are looking for people with my skill set. I filled up the online application and one of the recruiter II contacted me for initial screening. Apparently he has some kind of check list in front of him. I did not have one of the qualification in his check list and he turned me down. After a month later, the hiring manager called me to follow up. I told him the recruiter II rejected me because i never use the software before. On the next day, I get a call from another HR person about face to face interview. They set up a time and I went in for the interview. I interviewed with 3 different managers. The questions were easy, mostly about the project i have done in the past. I knew what i was doing and i was able to answer their questions. I raised my concern about i never use one of the software before. They told me the software is not a major skill they are looking for. After face to face interview, I got the offer letter within 2 days. Flowserve is losing a lot of talented potential employee because of the Recruiter. Recruiter filter the candidates based on the qualification and not the right attitude. I have see a lot of employee with lazy attitude and get hired because of their certification.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly behavior questions and the project i have done in the past. No curve ball. Everything straight forward.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate at all. The offer was good enough and provide me a good career path.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Flowserve.

    Interview

    The Interview process is slow, after a round of interview , one has to wait for sometime to find out whether it is moving any further. The company needs someone with B2B experience, so there is low chances to get hired if you are coming from the consumer industry.

    Manufacturing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Allentown, PA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Flowserve (Allentown, PA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Recruiter screening by phone then interviewed in person. Recruiter questions were pretty basic at first then got REALLY detailed and specific. Hiring manager seemed distracted and busy DURING the interview, which made me concerned about what it would be like having them as my boss. The work location was cool and the projects we discussed were very much like what I had hope for. I met a few people there that seemed to be enjoying their jobs.

    Reasons for Declining

    I had another offer that had a higher salary and better benefits. The manager there seemed more excited about having me join the team.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Irving, TX
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Flowserve (Irving, TX).

    Interview

    Very unorganized interview process. It is an embarrassing process having candidates return four and five times to interview with 10-12 people due to the inability for hiring managers and leaders to make a decision. They string people along and make candidates take full days away from current careers or responsibilities to wait hours to meet with people once they do often never hear back or receive responded. No planned organized schedule. Unprofessional and embarrassing. Not a culture that cares about time commitments and respect one's personal integrity.

    Interview Questions

    • What questions do you have? First person I was meant to interview with cancelled. Second person answered calls and emails during my interview that lasted 8 minutes. Said she was too busy. Said she was not happy and told me I would be overwhelmed.   1 Answer
