Interview

Just Bizzare - Stood Up at the Interview

I submitted a resume to Rain Bird back in 2007. Apparently it was still on file. This May (2012) I recieved a call from an internal recruiter at Rain Bird. He found my old resume and passed it on to the director of the business unit. She wanted to interview me. He was calling to see if I had interest, sent me the job description etc. etc. All normal stuff.

Over the course of a couple of phone calls we set up a time for a phone interview. The time comes and passes. I have now contacted the company via email and phone...yes, the people do work there. No answer. The lack of professionalism is amazing. It sure fits with everything people have written. Wow.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Rain Bird (Tucson, AZ) in October 2008.

    Interview

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was done with head hunter.
    My advice is do not work here if you do not want to sell your soul. It is a burn and churn place where employees are expected to leave their dignity and respect at the metal detector door.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Rain Bird (Tucson, AZ) in May 2008.

    Interview

    Spoke to recruiter, then to hiring manager. Flew in for interviews with 1) Hiring manager, 2) her manager (was only on the job for 4 days), 3) Director of Commercial. The interview was a sales pitch, very little useful information gained on my part.

    Perception of work culture
    - silence in the cubical areas - no meetings in offices, discussions/brainstorming, laughter

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Rain Bird (Tucson, AZ) in May 2008.

    Interview

    I was contacted and interviewed by a corporate recruiter.

    I had a first round interview with the Senior Product Manager over the phone, and was invited to Tucson to meet with the Marketing Manager, SBU director, and a fellow product manager.

    Job offer came pretty quick with two weeks to decide.

    The place gave me a strange feeling from the beginning. Way too serious for a company that makes plastic tubing and valves. The metal detector and bag inspection at the front desk raised a red flag. I used to work for a high tech communications company and we had less security at the front desk.

    Negotiation

    I was between jobs, the offer was fair so I didn't negotiate.

    I should have pushed for more vacation.

    The process was to involve 2 interviews, but I was told in the 1st interview that the guy who gave the 2nd interview was impossible. He was to be the boss. When leaving I met him and he was a real jerk. I declined the 2nd interview.
