    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Crown Equipment (New Bremen, OH) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by two different people in the fleet management department at Crown. It seemed to be an analytical type administration position but they were looking for people with accounting degrees because they tend to do well with numbers. Fairly laid back interview with basic questions. I did have to take an excel test after the interview.

    Receptionist Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Crown Equipment (Lenexa, KS) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I was called by a staffing agency to interview for this company as the receptionist. There was barely anyone in the office when I arrived at Crown in Lenexa. The interviewer was pretty quiet and just asked basic questions about my resume. It didn't seem to be an impressive company and I could tell it wasn't really a place I desired to work.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked how my attendance was in previous positions. I answered with "I think..." and the interviewer called me out on it. It was difficult to tell what was an acceptable answer to that question. Don't answer anything in an interview with "I think."   Answer Question

    Manufacturing Engineering Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kinston, NC

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Crown Equipment (Kinston, NC) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume online on Dec 15 and was contacted for a telephone interview two days later. The telephone interview was conducted with the hiring manager on Dec 22. Telephone interview went well and a trip to the facility was coordinated on Jan 7th. The trip was on Jan 17th with the interview on Jan 18th.

    In the interview at the facility, there were some red flags that came out immediately. The issues were not with the facility or the location (of which was in Kinston, NC) but rather with how the business was operated. Some of the questions I was asked focused on how do you handle a subordinate who does good work but will not work well with people and is verbally abusive. I explained the method used in every company I worked for where you put the person on a PIP (Personal Improvement Plan) and if they are unable to improve then you have to manage them out of the business. This did not go over well...the interviewer replied with "We do not fire people here" I knew at that point I could not work there. Some employees who know beyond a shadow of a doubt that they can do ANYTHING and not get fired will abuse that knowledge...and they do there.

    This sentiment was later reinforced by another of the interviewers. He said "I never fear for my job....take that as you want" This is not a culture that I want to work in...I will go crazy knowing that the dead weight will drag everyone down and they absolutely will not fire people.

    The travel expense reimbursement took over 10 weeks to get a check and I still do not know if I got the job because I have not heard anything back from them. I am confident that I did not get the job since they have posted the position twice on the job boards. On the bright side I did not have to turn down an offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Crown Equipment (Celina, OH) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Had an interview with HR and then had a second interview with HR and the operations manager. Interview process went very well over all. No hard or stressful questions. Pretty straight forward. Just be honest with them and act casual, they aren't out to get you lol.

    Interview Questions

    • One thing that the operations manager asked me that Ive never been asked before was: If you could chose anything in the world to do, from collecting stamps to being a doctor what would it be? I thought that was kind of different but neat.   1 Answer

    Account Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Crown Equipment (Akron, OH) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Very turned off. Interview started with 3 people in a hotel lobby, all 3 people seemed unprepared for the interview and one of the 3 people were not even asking questions. Also, I was planning on 30 -45 minute interview and after they asked me to complete an hour long test! Complete joke, the test was redundant and asked the same questions dozens and dozens of times over again along with math formulas. I ended up just clicking to get through, 161 questions. Finally they gave me a urine cup and told me that if they called me I would have to take a drug screening. Seemed like a circus and clown show and I hope they don't call me. Interview for me was a waste of time and uninformative.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing that would be helpful for a screening candidate.   Answer Question
