    Production Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newark, NJ

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Benjamin Moore (Newark, NJ) in September 2010.

    Interview

    Began with multiple phone interviews - HR generalist and National Manager. Both were brief, and focused on generalities of employment history. Then two on site interviews with Plant Manager and National Manager - both took a little over one hour and was a basic STAR style interview. Plant tour allowed for some interaction with plant employees - who seemed to be invested in both their job and the company. As the position was new-ish (an extension of an existing job), the role was not completely defined yet.
    The fact that multiple sources (including a throw-away comment at the interview) mention free lunch as an amazing perk raises concerns about professionalism and the incentive structure within the company.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Benjamin Moore (Montvale, NJ) in March 2009.

    Interview

    Hiring process was slow. Started off with phone interview, followed by interview at headquarters with about seven people. The company sat me in a room and then I had three rounds of interviews with 2 people at time. The last interview was with the hiring manager who spent some more time with me than the previous rounds. After this I waited two months to get an offer. Background and drug tests required.
