I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Rust-Oleum in September 2014.Interview Details
-Applied online and was contacted a couple of weeks later for a phone screen with HR.
-Easy phone screen where I was asked about work history and told somewhat about the position but very vague about salary for some reason. After the phone screen HR will tell you about a "homework assignment" that you need to complete for the next step. I'm not kidding....
-You find out the homework assignment is to create a video about "what motivates you?" and send it in. At this point you'll probably be scratching your head and wondering what you've gotten yourself into here and why they don't just facebook friend you and have you make a youtube video on graffiti with their paint or something.
-Phone interview with hiring manager that's very easy and straightforward and just went over my background and the position. Here's where it went off the rails for me....The manager said he was impressed with my experience and was definitely inviting me to a face to face interview the following week and told me to clear my schedule because I would be getting call asap to schedule my trip from HR and get me flown out. He was emphatic about this....Then I heard nothing for a week until I emailed HR to find out what was going on and was immediately sent a form turndown email. The manager I interviewed with would not return my call and that was all I heard from them.
-Never again...Total waste of time, lies, weirdo video, and non responsive after they shut you out of the loop after lying to you. I will recommend fellow colleagues NOT to apply here.Interview Questions

He just wanted to keep his ship intact. That’s why, when he noticed that an accidental splash of fish oil had stopped the relentless spread of corrosion on his rusty metal deck, he immediately recognized it for what it was: A valuable solution.
The same passion that drove the Captain to spend his next few years creating the world’s first rust-preventative paint still drives us today. When we see a...
