Design/Manufacturing Engineer Interview

Design/Manufacturing Engineer
Cortland, NY

I applied online and the process took 12 months - interviewed at Pall.

Interview Details – I interviewed for several openings. I never got an answer to any of the them. I left countless phone messages with the HR manager. None of them were ever returned. The only time I received a follow up notice was when I received an offer for one of the openings.

Interview Question – Pleasant and informative with two way approach. No difficult or unexpected questions were asked.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – It was no room for negotiation. When I tried to negotiate the HR cancelled the offer. My negotiation attempt was viewed as a disrespectful act to the hiring process.

Service Representative Interview

Service Representative
New York, NY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Pall in April 2014.

Interview Details – There were 2 Phone interviews, one with the recruiter and then with the hiring manager.
This was followed by 1:1 with HR & Hiring manager again. Too much time was spent between the 2 inter\views.

Reason for Declining – Received the offer, I accepted it but Pall pulled the offer back in a week time even before joining. No reason, no discussions!!
The hiring manager and recruiters suddenly stopped communicating.

This company made a Cruel joke in offering me a job!!!

I will NOT trust Pall corp anymore.
I request you as well from the bottom of my heart to think million times. PLEASE DO NOT believe in the offer. They may play games with you.
I cannot believe Pall corp, In my opinion, this company has NO credit & values.

Very Difficult Interview

Customer Service Representative Interview

Customer Service Representative
Port Washington, NY

I applied through other source - interviewed at Pall in July 2013.

Interview Details – I had a short phone interview on my way to my work since I cannot talk in private at my office. My time is tight and whatever schedule I had they were willing to work with me and we set a time up. Unfortuanately after seeing many of the posts by current and former employees on this website I am not going in. I always saw Pall post jobs frequently during my previous search and had a feeling the jobs here may be a 'hot seat'. I then told a friend about this (who worked in health benefits) and she said "OMG", they were my former client. She confirmed the benefits were good (first day) but they treat their employees like **** and the turnover is very high. The HR also made a glaring error and sent me the questions the staff is supposed to ask me, not the applicaton that I was supposed to receive.

Very Easy Interview

Recruitment Manager Interview

Recruitment Manager
Portsmouth, South East England, England (UK)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Pall in April 2010.

Interview Details – Initially I was approached by an agent who couldn't tell me who their client was. Then I underwent an interview with their client, but at the agency's premises. Once I knew the company I grew to realise that Pall Europe was an unknown, but very successful giant sitting in Portsmouth, England. The second interview was then held with the MD of the company in their premises.

Interview Question – There was nothing too hard are unexpected about their questions. However, I learnt that the secrecy was because they were simply going to move the previous incumbent out and move me in, in their place. If anythinig the interviews were a little too easy and I should have taken that as a warning, as the two men that took me on had an agenda that was not entirely in keeping with the agenda that was understood by those in Head Office back in the States.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Very straight forward. The company seemed very keen to take me on as soon as possible.
