    Designer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Allied Building Products (Jersey City, NJ) in June 2016.

    Interview

    • Applied online when it was advertised on LinkedIn.
    • Spoke with recruiter on phone.
    • Scheduled a phone interview with the manager.
    • On day of phone interview the recruiter calls me up to say that the manager has to cancel due to another appointment. So the interview was re-scheduled.
    • On 2nd try for the phone interview, the manager tells me that he has to cancel in order to run a last-minute errand. So the interview was re-scheduled yet again.
    • On 3rd try for the phone interview, we actually get to talk -- it went well, and he wanted to set up a date/time to come in for an in-person interview. He said he would get back to me regarding that.
    • As previously directed, I forwarded the details of the interview to the recruiter.
    • Many, many weeks passed without any word about an in-person interview.
    • Finally, I reached out to the recruiter to see what was going on. She then tells me she "just received" word from the manager that they have to cancel all hiring as the company was undergoing some "organizational changes".

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty easy and straight-forward. Mainly questions about my skills and background, etc.   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Allied Building Products (Clearwater, FL).

    Interview

    Unprofessional and disorganized. No one seemed happy there and said hello when walking in. My resume was not reviewed prior to my appointment.. And my calls/email/texts were not returned for three weeks. I may have interviewed during a transition time for them, but the experience left me with a negative feeling.

    Interview Questions

    • It was more of conversation rather than answer / question. A very casual interview.   Answer Question

    Interview

    ma great interview so I thought. They seemed really nice, it was more of a get to know you kind of thing. They said they would be back with me later to let me know. I interviewed a month ago and still they say they are in the evaluation process. Basically no communication through the process not even a simple email reply.

    Bank Reconciliation Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rutherford, NJ
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Allied Building Products (Rutherford, NJ) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewer was nice. I was asked two or so questions but 99% of the interview was just to tell me about the company. The process took slightly over an hour and I got the impression that I was just called in so that they could say that they did look at "outside candidates". It seems that this company only hires from within and seldom outside.
