    I have been working at Allied Building Products full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Started in the warehouse back in the 90's driving a forklift for $7 an hour. Now I have the honor of running multiple locations for them. A big company consisting of two hundred small "Ma & Pa" locations. The security of scale and the entrepreneurial freedom at the local level make for the best balance in the industry.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a 9 to 5 job keep looking. If you come from a place where everyone gets a trophy move on. If you have a sense of entitlement and can not deal with a meritocracy this isn't for you.

    Project Manager - IT Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  East Rutherford, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in East Rutherford, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Allied Building Products in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by the HR function through LinkedIn. After a few emails I got onto a call that was the HR interview. This was towards the end of the week and I was called in twice the following week for interviews with the hiring manager and the manager of the hiring manager. There were several follow up calls with the HR function - mostly to get clarifications from me on my experience, expectations and the references I had provided. The final phone interview was with the hiring manager. After we went through some additional questions and expectation setting I was offered the position. The process went through remarkably quickly.

    Interview Questions
    • I was coming in from a outsourcing consulting firm with a major offshore presence. I felt that a lot of detailed questions that we went over multiple times were to do with my background and events in such an industry that Allied Building Products did not seem familiar with at a granular level.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The firm was very clear on the budget for the role for the beginning of the conversation.
