    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Hearth & Home Technologies.

    Interview

    Took over 2 months to complete interview/hiring process. They move very slow for being a multi billion dollar company. The interview itself was easy, easy questions, basic "tell me about your strengths/weaknesses/how you overcame them". Drug test, mouth swap.

    Maintenance Technician Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Hearth & Home Technologies (Iowa City, IA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    It was straight forward and very informative. Dave Walsh did a great job and answered all my questions. I sounds like a great place to work. Looking forward to an offer very soon. The job sounds like one I would enjoy and look forward to. There seems to be a thirty word minimum so I'm not sure what more they want from me on this.

    Manufacturing Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hearth & Home Technologies (Lake City, MN).

    Interview

    Interviewer called late. Questions were behavioral asking for examples primarily.

    The interview left me thinking they did not want a woman in the position. There were persistent questions asking me why I would want to deal with working as a manufacturing engineering on a factory floor dealing with conflict (ignoring the fact that I always have). Only one was asking for an example of how I dealt with conflict which the interviewer liked. There were also comments about how I'd have to be dirty and on the factory floor (something I've also always done). These tend to be code for not believing a woman is the right fit.

    This coupled with the fact that my name couldn’t be included in the rejection letter (it just said Dear Candidate_name) and the fact the interviewer even called late left a feeling of potential systemic discrimination.

    Interview Questions

    • Give an example of a conflict you dealt with on the factory floor when you had a seemingly intractable problem with people and what did you do to resolve it.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hearth & Home Technologies (Lake City, MN) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I met the recruiter at a job fair at my University. Within a few weeks of applying, I had an interview. They paid for my travels, gave me a tour of the plant, and provided lunch. Everything about this experience was amazing. I was welcomed immediately and everyone was so friendly. There were 4 people who interviewed me (all at once). Each one asked me questions about how I would handle certain situations or what made me want to be a part of Hearth and Home Technologies.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hearth & Home Technologies (Kettle Falls, WA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online. Interview was scheduled about 2 weeks later. They emailed on a Tuesday and asked when I could come in that week. They could only do it certain hours and required a 3-4 hour time slot. Hard to do so last minute when you are currently working. Interviewed with three separate people.

    Production Tech I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lake City, MN
    Accepted Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Hearth & Home Technologies (Lake City, MN) in November 2012.

    Interview

    Initial interview was with a member of staff from an employment company who had been stationed at the company of employment. This lasted all of half an hour through all the questions, eventually leading to a tour of the building and three options for placement.

    Hire by H&H was about twice as long and was conducted with my (then) supervisor and manager both. The questions were rather basic, as they'd been asking similar ones for over a week.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Applied 2 months prior, had a phone interview, in person interview which lasted about an hour, then 3 interviews which lasted two hours. Took place over a period of 1 month. Very disorganized and fragmented responses to questions which I asked, was basically told that they don't know what they are looking for. Tried to put me in different boxes, wasn't impressed. I had my Hearth and Home Fireplace ripped out at my house the next day.
