    Vice President Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Worth, TX

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Trinity Industries (Fort Worth, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    This has to be one of the worst processes I have ever experienced. Not the interview itself, but actually getting to the interview. This process started in January with a headhunter. Trinity had changed the parameters of the position so many times along the way, the job was on, off, on, off. Even the headhunting team was frustrated. I had other headhunters calling me on the same role. There was so many Trinity people to be involved in the recruiting process it made no sense and according to the headhunter, he had lost quite a few good candidates over this long drawn out process. I think once Trinity figures out what they want, they may be able to hire someone. In fact, I think HR's involvement is hurting this process. If the President who is the boss for this position could interview one or two people, the position would be filled. The Trinity recruiter told me I was a great candidate with an exception of total FTE experience but it shouldn't be a showstopper. Then, I didn't get the role.
