    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Crane Co. (Atlanta, GA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Not too stiff of a process. It was at a conference in Atlanta and felt informal, but still serious. We sat down at the conference for a one on one interview. It was very much about my goals and my vision for my future. I could tell the company wants people who will be great assets and stick around.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Crane Co. (Stamford, CT) in August 2014.

    Interview

    1st Round Phone Interview
    2nd Round "roundtable" Interview

    Mostly behavioral questions to assess whether or not interviewee fits within the culture at the corporate HQ. The entire interview is really just an open discussion with a member of HR and individuals within the department the interviewee will be working for should he/she get hired. There are a few questions to assess your experience level but for the most part they use this "group" interview to determine how the interviewee will fare in a team environment.

    IT Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Crane Co. (Blue Ash, OH) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Things will seem like any other company. They take a while get through a process and make a decision. It is not until you get to the in person interview, that you truly get an impression of what kind of company Crane is. It is like there is some secret code you need to "fit" into their organization, regardless of experience.

    Interview Questions

    • The in person interview process is like a combination of CSI and this is your life. I have been out of school over 20 years and they started in High School and College. Then, they start going through jobs that you had, that were not even on your resume. Having you carefully walk through each one. What did you do? What did you like? What didn't you like? When did you fail? When did you succeed? What didn't you like about your boss? What would your boss say about you? Can we call your old boss? It went on like this for 4 hours, each time asking if they can call your old bosses, to see your reaction. Hoping to dig up some rotten corpse in your background, that will give them some idea of who you were 15 years ago, regardless of who you are now. Leads one to wonder if it is just as tedious to work there, and try to get anything accomplished. Complete and utter waste of time. Instead of trying to build trust and have an honest progression towards a possible offer, it instead turned into a life audit. Very unimpressed.   Answer Question
