    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Palm Beach, FL
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at CEMEX (USA) (West Palm Beach, FL) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Started with an hour long phone Interview the week before Thanksgiving with HR. The call was a casual 2-way conversation and we both learned quite a bit about each other.

    Two weeks later they contacted me to schedule a phone interview with the hiring manager on December 1st. We spoke for an hour and the manager did most of the talking. The conversation flowed well and he provided a strong breakdown of the position and what they were looking for. A week and a half later they called to schedule an on site interview in 3.5 weeks on January 5th.

    Onsite interview lasted several hours and included discussions with hiring manager, his boss, one of his coworkers and HR. Questions were mostly aimed directly at the job and they provided an overview of the company’s beliefs/philosophy. Interview also included lunch at a restaurant and a quick tour of the area. Everyone was friendly and interviews were well organized. 2.5 weeks later I got a call.

    Safety Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at CEMEX (USA) (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    My experience and resume was so great for them, I would not accept their offer because of lack of communication and organization. They invited me quickly for onsite interview, upon seeing me, they are discouraged because over the phone and by my name they taught I was Mexican or Japanese American - affirmation from their HR--- Oops. Also, I look younger than my age, they were worried that all my team members would be older - poor judgment by them - Deng it! The hiring manager took me to a fast food restaurant for lunch ... OOCH! They actually shown interest. It took more than three months before they pay my interview reimbursement, they did after I threaten a small claim court. The service and treatment was too shabby.

    Interview Questions

    • They aren't prepared for interview, very unorganized company. Good questions and answers session. Gave them few insight on how to improve their safety program. They wrote them down.   1 Answer
