    I have been working at CertainTeed as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    As an intern, I was expected to accomplish less than the full-time staff. However, my group still included me in all meetings and discussions and gave me responsibility. I enjoyed the staff members and would be happy to return full time and work with the ones I knew.

    Cons

    I recognize that internal bureaucracy is necessary and common to many companies, but it is definitely present at CertainTeed and can be painful.

    Purchasing Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at CertainTeed in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Filled out application on-line for position. Took them about 1-2 months to call me. Got an invite to virtual interview. Downloaded app for Interview Stream to phone. Signed on with password and got to first screen and app froze. This was the case with the whole process it was very frustrating. Was a total of 6 questions and a banner covered questions you really couldn't see whole question. I reloaded app and it crashed. Finally finished all questions (So I thought) and completed interview. Left message with HR person and he said oh the app for the phone doesn't work well. You need to use your computer and it needs to be an updated one or it will not work.

    This is a way to weed out who they don't want. Who can afford an updated computer with all updated equipment if you don't have the money?
