    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Empire Southwest.

    Interview

    Initial contact from HR was great. Interviews were almost militant but the office seems less rigid. The hiring manager made false statements, dangling the golden carrot with no regard for the applicants.

    Interview Questions

    • questions regarding cross-departmental working styles.   Answer Question
    • lots of personal questions masked as leading "get to know you" chit-chat   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I did not appreciate the lack of respect. If this is how they treat prospective employees, I cannot imagine as an employee. Good thing too, since the company has been in the news regarding serious financial losses.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Empire Southwest.

    Interview

    Three long interviews with the same questions multiple times. The priority seemed to be more character rather than ability. The overall experience seemed as if each department makes up its own rules rather than follow corporate culture. I got the feeling that Empire rather not have to deal with Caterpillar as a product line.

    Interview Questions
