    District Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EMCOR (Connecticut) (Saint Louis, MO) in June 2015.

    Interview

    A series of 3 different in-person interviews over the course of about 10 days. During the last interview I received a verbal offer which I accepted. I then turned in my two-week notice at my other job. Big mistake!

    Unfortunately, when I received my written offer, it was for 5 thousand dollars less than what I shook hands over. And it didn't specify that I would be getting my own company car as verbally promised.

    On my first day on the job they informed me they were sorry but the hiring manager made a mistake and they don't supply company cars anymore.

    Lesson learned...never quit your job until you have an iron-clad written offer in hand.

    Buyer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norristown, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at EMCOR (Connecticut) (Norristown, PA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Knowing what I now know, I would think twice about ever applying for a position with this company.

    The HR Staffing Specialist first contacted me to schedule our phone interview. Next he emailed me a link to fill out a company on line application, and then scheduled me for a face-to-face interview with (4) of the Senior Buyers on site. That interview lasted 1.5 hrs. I should also mention that the HR agent who told me he'd introduce himself prior to my interview, never even bothered to stop by to meet me or offer any apology for not doing so.

    I came prepared for my interview. Extra copies of my resume in hand, dressed professionally and I had arrived ten minutes early. After the interview had ended I thanked all 4 interviewers for their time, and also followed up with the group via email.

    Following this, the same HR agent sent me one more email, asking me about my salary requirements. I replied to his email that same day, and have NEVER HEARD BACK since...

    Despite my polite requests weeks ago for some update on my candidacy, EMCOR never even bothered to respond. I sent an email as well as a telephone message to the HR agent. Both have gone unanswered Quite unprofessional protocol in my opinion. If that's how they treat non-employees, including those like myself who happen to be applying for a position with their company, I can only imagine what their culture is internally.

     EMCOR should understand and appreciate how much time and preparation candidates spend as they navigate through the interview process. My approach throughout had remained professional. I was very disappointed that this company sets such low expectations for themselves. I'm not in Sales or Marketing..but even I know that "image is everything".
