    Service Technician Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pella Windows & Doors (Grand Rapids, MI) in January 2014.

    Interview

    I attended a first interview with HR and the supervisor for the position which I was being considered. During the interview, I was asked if I was willing to be considered for a warehouse and a driver position. I responded that I would if it was very close in starting hourly pay. I was told I did a very good job after the interview, and was called shortly afterward for a panel interview. I scheduled the interview, and prepared diligently for it. I arrived early, and was asked to fill out a formal application. When I was almost completed, HR came to me and told me that unfortunately they had just hired someone for the service technician position. She asked if I wanted to interview for the other two positions. When I asked what the starting pay for them was, I discovered that it was much lower earning potential than the tech position. I was surprised at the unprofessional nature of this company.
