    I have been working at Carmeuse North America full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Carmeuse North America provides its employees with a very generous benefits package including an HSA option that has a nice employer contribution, really good vacation policy, and competitive salary.

    For me, I think the best thing about working for Carmeuse is the company's commitment to their employees. Carmeuse focuses on employee training and development, and encourages each of their employees to drive their own development. This summer, we were even given the opportunity to participate in a pilot program for an Alternative Work Schedule, showing their commitment to focus on promoting a work/life balance.

    Cons

    The organization is like most other organizations, a little on the lean side.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for making Carmeuse a great place to work. My one suggestion or bit of advice would be to focus a little more on Employee Recognition throughout the company.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Carmeuse North America in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had several interviews with VP of Sales and also traveled to HQ to meet with SR. VP of Sales/Marketing. It was an extensive process considering I had no previous aggregate sales experience. The entire process took about 3 weeks.

    Interview Questions
    • I had started a business 10 years prior that ultimately had failed. The interviewer, a high level VP, kept pounding me on WHY it had failed.   View Answer
