    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at H.B. Fuller (Aurora, IL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out to my via LinkedIn. Company had person in position and wanted confidential search. Met via phone with HB Fuller HR. Interview went well. HR Manager said she would set up interview with hiring manager within the next week. No call or e-mail for the next month from HB Fuller. Sent e-mail to HR manager, no reply #fail. Five weeks after phone interview, recruiter calls me and says HB Fuller still interested in interviewing me. I declined. If your company gives a bad first impression to candidates, then the culture must be bad. I don't need their job, they needed my skill. HB Fuller #fail.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at H.B. Fuller (Saint Paul, MN) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Just simple behavioral questions (conflict, goal in 5 years,...)
    They were very nice in answering all your questions about the company or the position you applied for. I had 2 interviews with them, one was average length, roughly +30mins, one was pretty fast. They did not ask much about your technical skills, probably just wanted to see if you were the right fit for the group and qualified for the position

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at H.B. Fuller in March 2015.

    Interview

    One-way Video Interview followed by an on-site interview.
    Since I'm don't really like one on one interviews, having the option to do the one-way video interview was very relaxing! Some of the questions allowed unlimited records for the answer (behavioral questions) while a couple questions only allowed two recordings before submitting (personal information). It was really helpful to be able to hear yourself at least once to notice the pacing of the answer as well as notice bad habits such as looking away from the camera and fidgeting.

    Regulatory Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at H.B. Fuller (Vadnais Heights, MN) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Was recruited to interview by an employee. I had previously worked at the same company as this person prior to us both going to separate companies and he was now in a leadership position within the group I was interviewing with at HB Fuller. Went through two rounds of phone interviews as well as two rounds of in person interviews. All in total I devoted a full work day to interviewing for this position. I had good conversations and received generally good feedback from all 8 interviewers that day. I was told that a decision would be reached within a week and that I would be notified personally. Sent my thank you notes and waited. Two weeks later I received a generic form email from HR stating that I wasn't chosen. Fine except for that five days later when the department head calls me and tells me the same thing and I thank him for having the courtesy to call me even though HR has already notified me, he has no clue that HR already had already sent that email. Alarm bells about bad communication start to go off in my head but I take it in stride.

    Fast forward a month and a half and another position in the regulatory group opens up. The Department Head calls me personally to invite me to apply, telling me I was a close second during the last round. I apply and then a week and half passes. I get email from him saying that since they had already interviewed me extensively last round, they would let me skip the first round and then bring me in with their final round of candidates in another week. Great, except that two weeks later I receive a form email from HR saying that I'm out. Two and a half months later I get a phone call from the department supervisor apologizing for never bringing me in, saying they'd opted not to fill the role until the next quarter, and apologizing for never letting me know about the job. When I mention the form email from HR, he's deeply embarrassed having no clue about it but mentions that this role will be opening up again "very soon".

    Two weeks after this I'm again invited to apply and interview for a very different position in the group. Now I'm suspicious that the only reason they'd bothered to call me at all after that failed second application was because they wanted me to appease me so I'd apply for this role. At this point I'm fielding other invitations to interview and so I decide not to reply. Maybe it's a mistake but after months of bad communication and basically feeling like I'm just being brought in to pad their candidate pool so that they will look good to the higher ups I just can't think of a reason to continue to let them take up more of my time. No thanks. Third time was definitely not going to be the charm for me!
