    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Henkels & McCoy.

    Interview

    Several video prescreens and video conference interview. Didn't seem to take time to understand level of expertise in industry and technologies clearly evident on resume. Clearly had the skills, but wanted to isolate one are - professional services - which I had prior experience in. No one appears to have been selected since it has been re-posted and assigned to outsourced recruiter who called given experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Henkels & McCoy (Pomona, CA).

    Interview

    Applied online in January, called for a phone interview in March, an in-person interview late March, and offered in April.

    The phone interview was very informal. The hiring manager/supervisor and HR manager spoke to me about the position, talked about previous work experience, and didn't ask any difficult, technical questions.

    The in-person interview had the same two along with two regional executives. That interview was much more detailed on previous work experience, once again went over the position, and what I studied in school. Overall pretty easy interviews.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Henkels & McCoy (Pomona, CA).

    Interview

    Steve from HR called me about a month after I applied, very nice, thorough and helpful as well as in his follow up emails. He set up two interviews and gave a good information about people I would be meeting with. Interview explained job role well.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked a question that was somewhat confusing at the time but made a lot of sense later. They asked how I would deal with monitoring the work done by payroll administrators even as I was not their supervisor but was still responsible for the accuracy and quality of their work. Ironically, this question rang in my ears for a long time--it was definitely a dilemma.   2 Answers

    Negotiation

    In my application I didn't ask for much of a raise from what I was making elsewhere due to the great need for a new job, during the interview I answered I would entertain any fair offer, when the offer letter came they offered me a considerable raise but with salary exempt status--previously I was hourly non-exempt.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Henkels & McCoy (Renovo, PA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Hiring process was very short and over the phone. They needed someone fast to cover a job in Pennsylvania and they hired me sight unseen. At first, it seemed very legit. The man I spoke with seemed very well spoken and intelligent. I later saw the real side of the company. Their project and company planning was as disastrous as their hiring process. A bunch of people doing different things using dated technology that all just argue constantly.

    Interview Questions

    • None...they asked no difficult questions. Maybe "Where did you go to college and what degree did you receive?" Literally, that was it.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate. The money was great starting out ($2,000/week). I was thrilled. I thought I would receive this 52 weeks out of the year. I got cut wayyy back once they sent me back to the estimating office.
