    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Interlake Mecalux in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I used a temp agency to secure this interview. The 1st was a phone interview with a Recruiter, Robin, she was very nice and upbeat. Then I had a face-to face interview, which turned into 3. The first was with the HR person, she wasn't mean but she also had NO expressions at all. The 2nd was with the "Sales Director", she was great and very friendly but she looked like her job stresses her out. The 3rd was with the Customer Service lead, Sharita, she was AWESOME, very friendly, very happy, she actually said she loves her job. Everyone else in the office did not look that happy walking in. I went through a recruiter and I am still waiting to hear back.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Interlake Mecalux in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Had initial phone interview, then 3 Skype interviews. First phone and first Skype interview went well, no problems. Next Skype interview was with individual that would be my immediate supervisor. Went ok until it was my turn to ask questions, then he became very evasive with answers, and when he did answer, he was quite vague. Made me wonder what he was hiding. Last Skype interview was with Director of HR - she was even more evasive, and downright rude. It was like pulling teeth to get her to answer my questions. My mental alarm bells were going off, wondering why these folks were being so rude and evasive, and the only answer I could come up with is that they are hiding some unpleasant facts about working for the company. Consequently, 30 minutes after my last interview ended, I sent an e-mail to HR asking them to remove my name from their list of candidates, as I no longer wished to be considered for the position.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Interlake Mecalux in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    The most strange and unprofessional interview process that I have ever encountered. First off, I walked into this interview very positive and optimistic, I was a good match for the job. That was quickly stopped when I was interviewed by HR. Her questions (which were redundant and very basic), her demeanor was unprofessional (giving me blank stares and giggling at my questions to her) and there were inconsistencies in her responses to my questions (basic stuff). The whole time she just stared off into space, it was obvious she was not interested in anything I had to say, it was very uncomfortable and left me feeling disappointed.

    After the interview, the recruiter came back to me with bad news. The reason given was that HR stated I didn't provide a resume. This was a blatant lie. She had my resume, in front of her and took notes at the interview. She then said my last employer discharged me, which is not factual. I was laid off, which I explicitly told her numerous times (redundancy) that it was a lay off. I encouraged her to check my references, but she shrugged me off. These false statements reflect the poor quality of this organizations' HR - totally bush league and unethical. I would advise not to pursue employment opportunities at this company.
