    Operations Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    Very much behind the curtain "oz-like" hiring approach. The position applied for was a professional / management level position requiring a college degree and several years of industry specific experience for which I am qualified. A few days after sending my resume I received an email (no reply to address) directing me to complete their on-line application which was very lengthy and intrusive. A few weeks later I received another email (again no reply to address) requesting I come to their office to complete their "plant application". When there I was given a 5th grade math quiz and asked for enough information to do a background check (no possible issues there). The receptionist said I should return the following Monday for an interview if the HR Manager was available. I asked her to set a time and let me know when to be there. I never received a call or email and became very annoyed with the whole process. After another month or so I received the don't call us we'll call you - thanks but no thanks email. For a company that plays so heavily off the "family business" image you would think a bit more personal approach to their hiring process would just be the natural thing to do.
