    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at David J. Joseph in May 2016.

    Interview

    Their hiring process is terrible. This company is a joke. They will give you a phone interview then reassure that they will get back to you after a week or two. Then, two months later, they will arrange another phone interview , after that they will send you a "Thank you for your interest " email to inform that you have not being selected. What a waste of time and life!! I felt like there was never an open position to begin with.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at David J. Joseph (Cincinnati, OH) in February 2014.

    Interview

    There was fist contact via phone to set up another 20 minute phone interview the next week. After that, they scheduled another phone interview for the following week. On the day of (or perhaps, one day before) the phone interview they sent an e-mail letting me know they were going to skip the phone interview and would just bring me in the next week. The in-person interview was relaxed and took roughly 2 hours (30 minutes per person). Two weeks from the in-person interview they sent a final e-mail informing me that they chose another candidate.
    Seems like a fantastic company. Everyone was super friendly and respectful. I loved the place so much that if they made even a decent offer, I would have accepted.

    Interview Questions

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at David J. Joseph (Cincinnati, OH) in December 2011.

    Interview

    Initial contact was 30 minute phone interview with the recruiter. Next interview consisted of interview with person with whom I would directly report. The interview was approximately 1.5 hours and was relatively relaxed. They are big on cultural fit within the Company so I feel like the primary purpose was trying to determine this. This was followed up the following week by a meeting with both the head of the HR department and another person within the department in which I was interviewing. Another 2 hour interview. The following week I was asked to come in and meet with another Division Head for lunch. The following week I was asked to to tour one of their local facilities in the morning and then meet with the CEO. The following week I was asked to come in again and take a battery of tests- personality, Wunderlich, etc. I was told I performed very well on these and an offer was imminent. A couple of days later I was told that there was one other last minute candidate who was referred by an a company affiliate, and they felt they needed to interview him to cover their bases. Needless to say they met with him once and made an offer. Very frustrating experience in light of what they put they through, only to make a hire based on one interview. I will say they were very straight-forward and honest throughout the process. Basically, I think they are good people who are painfully slow and meticulous in their hiring process.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at David J. Joseph (Cincinnati, OH) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Met with the Infrastructure Manager and the CIO. Toured the facility. Discussed the mood which was that it was an aging IT staff that didn't look kindly to change. Turns out the staff weren't very friendly with the new manager because he liked to be aggressive in monitoring his staff. He meant well and was very smart, but his aggressive nature didn't earn him respect.
