    Most of the hiring peeps have not been in the industry or sales for that matter to ask questions that are relevant to the position. Ask how long the manager has been there and how many years they have in the electronic industry

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Newark Element 14 in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Everyone I interviewed with seemed miserable at the company. Management seemed disinterested in the whole process but yet offered me a job. It just didn't feel right so I took another offer.

    If you do not know someone important that currently works there you can easily be overlooked and not considered or even given a letter to inform the applicant of the decision. Numerous recruiters have been let go for this very reason.

    Job Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Newark Element 14 in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    This is not the place you want to work. The building is a total dump and the people I met with were just plain weird. You walk in and the building honestly feels like the 70's show - with bathrooms that haven't been updated in 40 years and people who honestly behave like they're from another era. This may have been the strangest interview to date. It was clear that management had no clue what they were doing and were bringing someone to help them pick up the mess they created. The recruiter seemed a little off center too. As strange as this interview was I got an offer but there was no way I was going to take it. The reviews on this site are truthful. This is not a place you want to be. Two words to describe the company would be dysfunctional and shady.

    Marketing/Sales Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Newark Element 14 in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed for over 3 months for a management level position. The interview process seemed unorganized and longer than it needed to be. By the 10th interview I had the impression that most people interviewing me didn't really understand why they were selected to interview me or how the position fit into organization's strategic goals.

    The Hiring Manager and Human Resource Manager didn't follow up with me between interviews and each provided me with a date that the interview process would be completed. The dates were incorrect and neither one followed up with me on either occasion. Each time I assumed another candidate was selected but after a few days the Human Resource Admin called to schedule another interview with a different manager.

    The entire interview process was time consuming and unorganized. After 3 months of interviewing I didn't hear back from anyone within the company. When I called to talk to the HR Manager he said "The hiring manager didn't follow up with me, and I don't know where we are at in the process. I will get back to back to you by the end of the week". That was over 3 weeks ago.

    Through out the entire interview process each person I talked to emphasized that the company recognized that employee moral was low due to lay-offs, management style, and declining business. But they were focused on turning the business around and changing the organizational culture. If the interview process is a reflection of that change, they have a long way to go.
