    Contract Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Barnhart Crane & Rigging (Memphis, TN) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I first was called by HR for a video interview. The questions were about my previous experience and they were extremely generic and open ended. My second interview was with the hiring manager, who explained me in detail the responsibilities inherent to my potential position and made me a number of questions on my education and background.

    Administrator Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Barnhart Crane & Rigging in January 2016.

    Interview

    There were two interviews. One with the Branch Mgr, and one a few days later with that same Mgr and the (then) administrator. I was made aware that if Barnhart 'higher-ups' were in town, they would be in on the next interview and would ask me a lot of questions to test how much I knew...scary! Lots of questions were asked of me: how I operate, my integrity, my organizational skills, can I multitask, how do I handle pressure, my work ethic.

    I was quizzed on what I knew of the crane business, particularly Barnhart. I knew little to nothing, and said as much. When I was informed I would return for a second interview. I was told to do my homework because I would be tested verbally on what I knew the next time. I learned everything I could...how they started, where they started, who owned it, who the business was gifted to, their mission statement, their purpose, etc...And I WAS asked, as promised. Because I knew so much, I think it really showed that I was the person who really wanted the job badly. I was also asked a lot of the same questions I was asked the first time, to see if I would answer consistently, proving my honesty.

    I did end up getting the job, and am presently working there. They really keep a fast, constantly busy pace. Much faster than places I've worked at in the past. There's little time to chit chat, and no time for goofing around. I feel like I'm constantly behind, and never take my lunch break because of that. I think that has more to do with me and my standards than it does with them, though. I just need to learn to slow down and realize the work will still be there tomorrow. A lot is expected of their employees, but pay is good, and my boss is totally AWESOME! He is so nice and down to earth. He's easy to talk to, trusts me implicitly, and is very kind. Numbers, and keeping them in good shape, is very important in this business. There is a lot of pressure to make sure the numbers are good, and stay that way. My boss seems to be under a lot of pressure about that, but handles it like a pro.

    As a side note, this company is built on religious beliefs, which I personally like. No one goes around preaching to you, but it may be important for you to know if that's an issue somehow. If you are female and used to working in a more frou frou environment, it may be useful to know that this is a man's world. I don't mean that like you don't have importance or credibility. I mean that it can come with attitudes/behaviors you may not be used to. I didn't have a problem with it because I worked with truck drivers and farmers for years. There's not always a lot of 'niceties' you may be used to, that's all. Over all, I would say it is a VERY GOOD place to work, and I see myself working here for a long time.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you handle anger? What would you do if someone made you really mad? This made me worry because I wondered if people would be really mean, or perhaps even go 'off' on me. Looking back, I realize it was a bit of a gentle warning. Because I tend to be happy and upbeat, it is possible that people will consider me a pushover and eat me for lunch, so to speak.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Barnhart Crane & Rigging (Memphis, TN) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Poorly done - irrelevant questions. Very unusual questions for the role I planned to take with the company. Recruiting team dis organized.
    I was not kept in the loop on the process or informed of the next step in the process until the very last minute.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Barnhart Crane & Rigging in October 2016.

    Interview

    2 tests, 1 phone interview for 15 minutes, second phone interview for 45 minutes, then another test. One test was 2 hours long and tough. They asked me to role play. Didn't back down from price objection. Was told I did great however, didn't move on. Interviews are taped and I guess I was so awesome that someone was worried about competition at the next level. Also, a bunch of corn again Christians.
