    Internal Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Holland, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Haworth (Holland, MI).

    Interview

    I had a few phone interviews and then flew in for a full day of face-to-face interviews with several people, usually interviewing in pairs. Interestingly, after the very first contact, I was never interviewed by HR, only the business group that I would be working with. I would have appreciated more discussion with HR. A lot of time (too much time) elapsed between each phone interview, the onsite visit, and the job offer. When I questioned them about this, they explained it was because they were just soooo busy and also because they didn't think I'd accept an offer anyway because of the salary I was seeking. I actually had to explain them that it was customary to negotiate a salary.

    Interview Questions

    • I was very well-prepared and didn't find any of the questions particularly difficult or unexpected. However, they did ask for many examples of difficult or challenging situations I faced on previous jobs, how I handled them, and the outcomes. They asked many questions about my responses, seeming to dig deep in order to verify that I really did know what I was talking about and that I had the competence and experience that I claimed. I actually enjoyed the interview experience and appreciated that they took that much trouble to verify my qualifications.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It was awkward and difficult. I gave away too much during the negotiation. I was very impressed with some aspects of the company and the job, and probably appeared too eager. They offered the low end of the range we originally discussed. They said the range they initially mentioned was actually a mistake. The manager said that as a compromise, I would get a promotion and raise within the first year if I proved my worth. (I should have got that in writing...my mistake.) Despite excellent (and documented) performance reviews and ratings, my salary wasn't raised to the level we agreed. The manager explained that the "powers that be" wouldn't authorize it. I would have left, but the ups and downs in the economy over the years were too disconcerting. Instead, I adjusted my effort and performance level to match my compensation level. I am now actively seeking a new job.

    Interview

    Recruiter phone call for the first two interviews
    Flew me into Holland to interview with the team and management (half day)

    Sustainability Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Haworth in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email requesting a phone interview a week later. After the interview it took several weeks to hear a final answer whether or not I would be moving forward, even though the recruiter said that they would "be scheduling in-person interviews the next two weeks". I asked point-blank if the recruiter had any hesitations about moving forward and they said no, yet I felt I was led on to a final rejection. I was quite disappointed despite having similar qualifications to the person in this position prior.
