    Social Media Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Overland Park, KS
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Compass Minerals (Overland Park, KS) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Had an initial phone screening with member from HR. I advanced to next stage and had a phone interview with the hiring manager for the position. I then was told I had advanced to the in-person stage. I traveled out for an in-person interview and everything went great. I met with four to five individuals, all of whom gave positive feedback. I returned home and got a call four to five days later saying the position had been put on hold and did not meet the business needs at this time.

    Operations Leader Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Compass Minerals.

    Interview

    From initial contact to offer letter was approximately three weeks, so this company is obviously reasonably efficient. There were three phone interviews, each approximately an hour. Two were fairly casual, one much more structured. The proposed start date was two weeks out. Compass Minerals seems to know what they want to do, how to do it, and execute efficiently.

    Interview Questions

    • The most unexpected question was "Why are you better qualified than any of the internal candidates?" It was unexpected because it assumed that I felt I **was** better qualified, when in fact I couldn't speak to the qualifications of internal candidates.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    the first offer was solid in every way.

    Corporate Development Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Overland Park, KS

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Compass Minerals (Overland Park, KS) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I had a phone screen with HR which went great. I was invited to come in for a meeting with the Sr. Vps which I would report. When I arrived, it was another meeting with HR which repeated the phone screen. That also went well and they told me they would set up the meeting with the VPs, but then they refused to return my calls. As it turned out, they did not want to pay a recruiting fee and the outside recruiter sent in a dud before me. So HR was hesitant to review any more candidates from the recruiter.
