    Leadership Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Casella Waste Systems (Philadelphia, PA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Two interviewers that generally alternated questions. It was a very weird/awkward interview as if they had it all scripted from an "how to interview" book. It came off as very amateurish amd I was completely turned off by the interview from the company and was partially insulted. Lots of novice questions meant for a mid level manager.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Casella Waste Systems in January 2011.

    Interview

    Interviewed by a sales person who knows the job/territory and a regional recruiter. Very nice, but I believe not very good at interviewing. "Please write down your 5 strengths" , "which one is the best and why"-write down your 5 weaknesses" " which needs the most work" Who was your worst boss why? Who was your best boss why? Basically, alot of questions that seemed like the were torn out of a manual: "HOW TO INTERVIEW AN APPLICANT" No real thought or originality. I got the impression from the regional person that she thought she was a lot smarter than she really was. We did role play! I was a salesperson selling the other interviewer. I had to go through how I run a meeting and attempt to close them. They want to know what you say and how you say it rather than can you get beaten up and still come back. It's like they wanted style over "can you keep digging, keep grinding, are you hungry???!!!!!!!" Not impressed!
