I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Stanley Works in November 2009.
Interview Details – Human resources people seem uninformed about the job. So many steps in the process and so many meetings or phone calls where you seemed to cover the same topics over and over again, like everyone needed to hear the same answer 50 times. Layer upon layer of management and I don't believe that they ever filled the position. One boss said he was looking for someone with 10 years experience and another said he was looking for someone he could mold.
Interview Question – The company needs to move in a new direction, what do you think we should be doing differently in terms of our internal processes? View Answer
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Stanley Works in May 2010.
Interview Details – Very brief 1:1 interviews with several staff members. Very direct and to the point.
Interview Question – Nothing sticks out, just your basic interview questions. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Worked through the 3rd Party recruiter. Be open and honest about what your expectations are, and have reasons why you feel that way.
The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Stanley Works in February 2010.
Interview Details –
The interviewers seemed hardly interested in hiring anyone for the position. It appeared that no one really read my resume/ qualifications apart from the HR. It consisted of a phone interview with the HR first who was the only one who seemed knowledgeable. She got back in a week inviting me for a 1-on-1 interview and sent out some forms for me to complete.
Quite a few of the people I had to interview didn't even show up
Interview Question – If you were a gear, what kind of gear would you be? View Answer
The process took a day - interviewed at Stanley Works in November 2009.
Interview Details – Basic Phone Interview with HR. They responded within 2 days of posting my resume to their ad on an alumni network. The interview consisted of the usual questions about a time you had a problem, lead, etc. It became clear throughout the process that they were looking more for operations types with focus on 6-sigma and kaizen buzz words. By the end I think we both realized that it wasn't going to be a good fit.
Interview Question – Tell me about a Kaizen activity you lead, what was the result? Answer Question
