    Assistant Controller Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Stanley Black & Decker.

    Interview Details

    I was introduced by a recruiter with a lot of experience with the company for this position which had been vacant for a significant period of time. I Had (what I thought was) a good discussion with the hiring manager covering business topics, current events, organizational structures and functions and the role of the A/C (with possible upward movement into the controller role). After that, I had a more casual conversation with HR, which didn't really cover much of the cultural aspects that I had intended to learn about.

    After the discussion, I didn't hear anything from the company or the recruiter for some time, and when I followed up with the recruiter, I learned that the controller didn't have the same impression of the interview, and didn't consider me suitable for the role. I learned later that the controller left the company about three months later.

    IT Interview

    Interview Details

    A bit disorganized from the recruiting angle. The first round was a breeze as it involved phone interviews and an office interview, which the interview process was actually interactive and unique. However, my second round interview involved the recruiter waking me up from bed on a particular morning asking me to come to their office in 3 hours. The recruiters are terrible at communicating sometimes, and have a one-sided way of relating with potential candidates.

    Global Sourcing Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Stanley Black & Decker in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied to the position via Linkedin. The interview process was set via telephone not by email. That did not allow me to get all the contact information of the HR recruiter at Black and Decker. The interview went well, I got pretty good information on the position. No details were shared on the salary range neither on benefits. We ended the call on the agreement that the HR recruiter would pass my resume to the Hiring Manager and would advise on next steps. I never received another call. I knew that my profile was not a perfect match to the position so it was not a surprise. My take out from this process is that you should always get confirmation via email and have all the contact details from HR.

    Interview Questions
    • It was a screening interview. This usually do not pose very difficult questions. They tend to evaluate your personal profile, the technical would be done by the HM.   Answer Question

    Market Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Stanley Black & Decker.

    Interview Details

    Applied on line, got a call w/i 2 days, phone interview 2 days later, asked to come in 3 days later. Received an offer after 2 days. The process was quick. The interview was mainly tell me about your experiences. No questions of substance and seemed desperate to get anyone.

    ACCEPTING THIS JOB WAS THE BIGGEST MISTAKE OF MY CAREER. I found out the previous person left in less than a year and many others went to other companies. The place is really dysfunctional.

    Interview Questions
    • How do you deal with conflict? ...I found out there is lots of finger pointing and managers yelling
      Are you dedicated to work long hours? ...people work 12-14 hrs/day, typically 11 hrs at work and 1-3hrs at home.
      Can you start immediately? ...the hiring manager looked exhausted since he had multple openings
       
      Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I didn't negotiate. Really negotiate for a high salary b/c the annual raises are max 2% (avg 1%) and promotions don't seem to be based on merit.

    Interview Details

    Brought me in for a 3 panel interview, ask me superficial questions, and called me back two days later. Lots of people quit and they were desperate. I probably would have refused the offer had I known. I was doing so much work when I started until people were hired to fill all the voids.
