    Area Purchasing Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Lafarge North America in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    3 phone calls...2 with different HR staff and one within target department. One on-site interview with total of 5 people over two interview periods. All the people I spoke to were great. The results of my company research on past and current performance looks good, and from my standpoint appear to be looking to the future. After the on-site interview, I'm not sure if I'm the best fit for this position, but not for reasons of doubting the company, potential colleagues, or my ability to perform the job. I received a follow up from HR on my impressions. I would not hesitate to talk to them about other opportunities.

    Sales Support Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sun City, AZ
    Anonymous Employee in Sun City, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Lafarge North America in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Received a phone call in response to my online application and an invitation to interview. The first interview went well, and I was called back for a second interview to meet with two other department heads. The second interview also went well, although the meeting with the two other individuals was rather short in duration. The second interview concluded with more time spent with the main department head. The conversation headed into "offer letter, drug test, background check" territory without any discussion of salary being mentioned. When I did bring it up, that was when I learned the salary range was $10,000/yr less than what I was looking to make.

    Interview Questions
    • The question wasn't difficult, but it was posed more than once, and it was "How comfortable are you with placing collection calls?"   View Answer

    Human Resources Generalist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Alpharetta, GA
    Anonymous Employee in Alpharetta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Lafarge North America in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    The 1:1 consisted of interviewing with each member of the team (3 one on ones); approx. 3 hours long. The HR Manager was boring and uninviting. He asked questions irrelevant to the position, seemed very judgmental, and uninterested in what I was saying. Other 2 interviewers were great! Know your stuff with this company. The interviewers ask a great deal of industry specific questions. They also conduct a vocabulary test -- asked me the definitions of words that I would say such as Human Capital -- this is definitely not standard procedure. Also, be prepared to answer the same questions multiple times seeing as how you will interview with each person separately. They also ask if you have any other questions several times, even after you have asked questions throughout the interview. So prepare to ask a lot of questions I guess. Overall, not the best experience and I was not happy about interviewing for 3 hours.

    NOTE: I was told that after the 1:1, I would be asked to interview with the Regional Director as well. This is a bit too lengthy for an HR Generalist position. They did, however, send an email 2 weeks later stating I was not moving on to the next round.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Lafarge North America in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    My interview was with the Finance Manager and was very straightforward and casual with no surprises. It lasted about an hour. The overall interview went well and all signs indicated that he liked me and was ready to proceed to the next step. However it was two months before Lafarge got back to me and by then I had already found a job somewhere else.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Lafarge North America in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    I didn't have that first phone interview with HR that most candidates get. Instead, I was asked to come in for a 1:1 interview. The people I interviewed with were very courteous, and I thought I did well in the interview. Unfortunately I didn't get the job.
