Very Easy Interview

Assistant Project Manager Interview

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at GAF in July 2010.

Interview Details – Communication was easy. Mark was great. My boss was amazing. I got the job immediately, and started working the next week, part-time. Went over the resume, asked a few questions about travel and explained benefits, paid time off, and talked about my kids and the job. Got the job, easy as pie.

Customer Care Associate Interview

Customer Care Associate
Wayne, NJ

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at GAF.

Interview Details – Soon after applying (possibly because of my employee referral,) I was contacted by an admin assistant in HR to schedule a screening call with a human resources rep. The phone screening was short and sweet, and I enjoyed our conversation over the phone. They scheduled me for an interview a few days later. The "interview" consisted of a skills test- verbal, math, and applied math. Pretty easy. I then met with the HR rep for a few minutes, and interviewed with three managers in the department.

Interview Question – Something to the effect of... What would you do if you strongly disagreed with a company policy?   View Answer

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at GAF.
