Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC

Easy Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Enviva (Raleigh, NC) in Jun 2022

Interview

I applied on indeed then had a phone screen with the hiring manager then was invited to a panel interview with 4 different people from different departments. The first was the hiring manager again virtually then virtually with an HR director then with the current office manager and finally virtually with the HR Partner. Everyone was professional for the most part the HR Partner was very condescending towards me which just didn’t seem necessary. I think she might have been nervous because she just had started her position. I was shocked that after spending my time going through a four person panel interview that no one could take time to send me a rejection email. I was ghosted by this company. I definitely believe I dodged a bullet though by not moving forward with them.

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Enviva (Roanoke Rapids, NC)

Interview

A bit repetitive. Spoke to 7-8 people who all asked the same questions. I understand the need for extensive vetting given the pay range they offer, but they could improve the process via better organization of their interviewing process (ex: who asks what questions). Otherwise they were welcoming and warmly professional.

Interview Questions
  • Please describe a difficult scenario you faced as your current role's site HR manager, and describe how you handled it?

I applied online. I interviewed at Enviva

Interview

I was initially approached by a recruiter who I completed a quick call with. Eventually I was invited to an interview with the hiring manager, and lastly, an interview with the hiring manager plus the rest of the team. I don't recall the interview questions being particularly hard, but they did have a strong emphasis on willingness to travel... I clarified the number on the job description (80% travel), and they confirmed that the position would be mostly traveling, with occasional periods at home. I asked if I at least expect to be home on the weekends, and they couldn't confirm that. The interviewers also mentioned that this was not a good position for someone who was also studying on the side or planning to start a family soon.

Interview

Why it is so difficult for companies to effectively communicate the full way through? I did three rounds of interviews with Enviva (it was down to me and one other person) and they just left me hanging. It's obvious they went with the other person but is it really that hard to let me know? Or respond to my thank you email?

Interview

I interviewed with enviva, though I was more than qualified they waisted my time. They told me to call on a Friday I did Fri sat mon Tues wed Thurs , they never answered my calls they never even returned my calls . I was sure the job was mine as the interview went well but I can't set by the phone without knowing anything 25 years in industrial maintenance, and every crew I've been on was short handed and this is why ,cooperate people that don't, return calls or even answer the phone. Though the questions I was ask easy questions it was obvious the individual making the query wasn't a mechanic and didn't know any more than he had read from his desk. Pillar block bearings come in many sizes , this is day one info he was in aware of.

Interview Questions
  • Walk me through the process of replacing a pillar block bearing. ( He gave no size no info beyond ) he clearly had one particular bearing in mind yet was unable to articulate any specific pillar block bearing. Some fit in you hand some wouldn't fit in my truck. He was ignorant to this .
  • Explain how to regrease a bearing
  • What do you know about EDM technology.
