    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Holcim (US) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Several steps for interview including 2 phone interviews, one pre-interview on site, another 4 hour interview in the TSI style where 3 high level managers asked pointed questions that had to be answered in the STAR format: Situation, Task, Action, Result. This interview was followed up with an interview with the SVP of Manufacturing. Then I was called back for an interview with the entire Management Team, who then made a decision as to whether I was a good fit for the company.

    Senior IT Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dundee, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Holcim (US) (Dundee, MI) in April 2012.

    Interview

    General answers to questions on type of person you were. Technical questions were average. Would have expected more questions on what I would have done in a given situation. Wasn't concerned with certifications, versus real world experiences. Internal promotions were less than satisfying. Promoting from within should be more prevalent, and promote teamwork and dedication to Holcim.

    • Nothing unexpected was asked or even difficult. Was satisfied with the questions and weren't difficult to respond to.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation on salary.
