    I have been working at QUIKRETE full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Steady work and good interpersonal relationships with employees

    Cons

    Nothing negative really to report, Some company politics as is with any corporate job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If possibel, Raise pay to a more competitive wage that is equal to that of other similar positions in the industry. Start with 90 trial period with lower pay to see how the employee will fair and after a relationship is built with the employee give the person a substantial raise

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fremont, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fremont, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at QUIKRETE in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very professional and comfortable no pressure at all. About 30 minutes if they like you. Pre-scripted questions and situations of previous employers. "What is an example of going out of your way for a customer?" "What would you do if you did not get along with a co-worker and how would you deal with it?" During interview you are asked for salary expectations and wow you have to be in the $12-16 an hour to be considered if you ask for more forget it your resume will get tossed and interview I am sure will be short.

    Interview Questions
    • They will make you come back for a round 2 with the plant manager and he will casually ask about your background and if you are responsible. "Are you going to show up on time." Then they have you sit in an empty conference room and fill out an application while they talk to HR in Atlanta.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They negotiate on salary without you and they offer you the amount and have you talk to HR in Atlanta through telephone speaker again very causal easy going friendly guy and asks about your background and builds some rapport with you and welcomes you to the team once you accept the offer.
