    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sun Products Corporation (Wilton, CT) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and received notification of interest by HR. There was a form to fill out to further the application. Initial phone screen was with the head of the department which went well. After going back and forth to set up additional phone screens, one of the key interviewers didn't call. There wasn't any reason provided nor apology. (I felt that was unprofessional.) Next step was on-site interview with several people. Again another key interviewer was not available. No reason was given. The ones that did not meet their interview schedule at their appointed time I had to reschedule with them later that week. Neither apologized, even out of courtesy, for missing the original times though I had given the opportunity to do so. The coordinators did their best to schedule the interviews but the interviewers are responsible for being available when scheduled. The interviews were generally less than an hour and asked some questions not so much on your skills but on the cultural fit. I read that to mean that if you have a good personality then you'd do well. However, as a previous poster mentioned there didn't seem to be much diversity. It made me wonder what that meant until I got to the interviews. I agree that the interviews were unstructured and it was more of a conversation. (My take is that this company is a large [private] company but still acts like it is a small company. It's a commodity business - laundry detergent - and there are a lot of cost and market share pressures.) After sending followup messages to the hiring manager(s) I finally got an automated message that they were proceeding with another candidate. It just goes to show the level of professionalism that they have.

    Interview Questions

    • Unstructured and depending on the interviewer asked a lot about one's background. There was a lot of emphasis of how each person worked with each other and the rationalization of why each person was on the interview list. A lot of mention of "cultural fit" and seriously how can one person really assess the culture of a company until one is in the environment. A dog and pony show for a morning of interviews can pull a lot of wool over a person's eyes.   Answer Question
