Interview Details – I had 3 phone interviews that spanned about 5 months before they invited me to Wisconsin for a face to face interview. I was warned that it would be a behavioral interview, where they ask questions based upon your past experience and require examples and details. I was hoping to learn more about the job, because I thought since I had to give examples and details, they would give me details and examples. I wasn't looking for their secrets, but I was hoping to find out more about how I could help. They answered my questions with generalities and corporate buzzwords. They all had forms to fill out based on my answers. It seems that they found a way to create more bureaucracy instead of eliminate it. I left that place feeling like I wasted two days. I'm not looking to join a company that embraces the new philosophy of Charles Koch's Market Based Management to only add to their vocabulary and not their actions.
