    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at James Hardie.

    Interview Details

    Started off with phone interview with recruiter. Fairly simple questioning about past work history etc. After passing that I had to take several assessments online. After those scores were received, I was asked to do a video interview, where you record your questions. From there I had a phone interview with the regional sales manager. I found his line of questioning aggressive. I'm not sure if he was just seeing how I would react to the situation, or how I handled it, but it caught me off guard. The manager was 45 minutes late to the call, which wasn't a problem as it was in the evening, but when I asked if I had the correct time, he was aggressive in his response and made me feel bad for questioning him. The interview was more of the same, where he asked a lot of the same questions, different ways. I kept responding and I don't know if I was just not clear in my responses or again he wanted to see how I handled the questions, but I could sense some frustration from him. When it was my turn to ask questions at the end, I simply asked him why the position was open, trying to figure out if it was a new position or if the previous person had been promoted (showing me they promote their people and provide advancement opportunities). He took offense to that question and quickly snapped back asking why it matters? This was the final red flag to me. I thought the interview went horrible, one of the worst in my career, however yet again I got a call from the recruiter the next day letting me know I was on to the next round.

    I politely declined and withdrew from consideration for the job.
