    Very well managed company with institutionalized focus on process improvement and application of best practices. Financially disciplined and efficiently operated. Strategically focused; strong and astute M&A activity.


    Can be slow to innovate; limited investment in new product development.

    Advice to Management

    The team is solid and the formula works -- keep doing what you're doing.

    Service Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Virginia Beach, VA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Colfax (Virginia Beach, VA).


    The service manager was clearly disappointed in my lack of Navy experience. It sounds like they are trying to only hire vets. This is fine, but they're limiting their talent. The description makes it sound like I'd be a really good fit but I guess I don't know. The service manager was very informal and cursed a lot. It was not like most interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • Literally nothing, service manager would rather talk about the Navy than any experience or skills I had. He was talking about how long it would take me to catch up because I was not Navy. I've worked with Navy vets. I don't think they actually receive any training. This service manager would not move past this.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The offer wasn't even considerable. In an industry offering 20 25 and hour, they offered 15.
