    Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Hanson Building Products (Irving, TX).

    Interview

    The Recruiter initially contacted me by phone to pre-screen for the position. The Recruiter brought up the salary for the position and indicated that it was a non-exempt salary position at $35/hour or about $73,000/year. It was within my expectations, so I agreed to pursue the position. The process went quickly, and from the time I had my first interview to an offer letter was one week. The offer given to me was $65,000/year with bear bones benefits - employee paid health, vision, and dental insurance. No HSA, no minimum life insurance, no 401K match, no professional education reimbursement, no bonus potential. The General Counsel who offered me the position acknowledged the low compensation and "guaranteed" 5 hours a week OT to raise compensation closer to $75,000/year. I did not immediately accept the offer, but instead questioned the $8,000 base discrepancy between what the Recruiter represented and the offer salary. She had no explanation for it. Instead of doing the right thing and sticking to what their Human Resources represented, the General Counsel called me on a Sunday afternoon to withdraw the offer. Showed me that this company is not as good as its word and would make misrepresentations during the interview process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hanson Building Products (Dallas, TX) in May 2014.

    Interview

    It was a pretty simple interview. You go in and they may give you a tour around the plant to see all the operations and what exactly the company does. They allow you to see exactly what you will be doing and they give you a short 20 interview.

    GRADUATE POSITION Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hanson Building Products in June 2016.

    Interview

    The video interview has an avatar that is extremely off putting. Getting through it is easy enough though. The assessment day was a good experience. Although I did not know to expect an interview. The presentation to "sell yourself" is an outdated form of interview in my opinion. There's a quick written test as well. It was good to see the group exercise actually being relevant to the role.
