    Fire Protection Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at J. F. Ahern (Saint Louis, MO) in July 2019.

    Interview

    I had a very positive experience with the interview and hiring process, it was very streamlined and better than companies I had interviewed with in the past. There were three stages of interviews for me: a phone interview with HR, an interview with two managers, and a final video interview with a general manger. I always heard back from my recruiter within a week of each step of the process, and received an offer within days of the final interview. I was very happy with the offered compensation package (base pay, benefits, time off, bonuses, etc).

    Each interview was very straightforward - the goal of the interviewers was always to get a better understanding of my experience, abilities, etc. Additionally, every person with the company that I spoke to had nothing but good things to say about the company and how employees were treated and valued. This, along with the excellent communication throughout the whole process, really made me feel excited about the opportunity to join the company.

    Supply Chain Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fond du Lac, WI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at J. F. Ahern (Fond du Lac, WI).

    Interview

    The start of the hiring process went well. They where very attentive and actually approached me about the position. The first 2 groups of the in-person interview went well; the last part did not go well. The person was extremely critical of me and my abilities, questioned my desire for success because I chose to have a family, and basically said that I am not the person he is looking for, which is fine but throughtout the time I spent with him, my self esteem went down because of the things he said and implied. I left the building and cried on the way home from being hurt. All of the interviewers made it very clear that the company is transparent regarding their business but the last gentleman said that transparent really means direct, assertive, and rude.
    I was also told by the HR Manager that I would be contacted within the next 2 days and 4 days later I still haven't heard from them...not that it matters because I do not want to work for them anymore anyway.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at J. F. Ahern (Fond du Lac, WI).

    Interview

    The interview process was incredibly quick and I was very impressed with the overall communication that I received. The recruiter was very responsive and let me know during the phone interview what the different steps in the interview process would look like.

    I applied online and had an e-mail from the recruiter to set up a phone interview within a day. I had the phone interview a few days later and a personal interview within the same week! After that, there was one final interview and I received an offer two days later. I happily accepted the offer and I can honestly say that this was the best interviewing experience I have ever had. I had applied at other companies around the same time and I received requests for phone interviews from them weeks later. They were not nearly as fast in getting back to me.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at J. F. Ahern (Fond du Lac, WI) in April 2019.

    Interview

    Had a telephone interview. The person interviewing was very kind and seemed interested, she was also very forth coming as to how long she had been with the company and how very much she enjoyed her position. She "sold" the company as far as I was concerned, made me more excited about my choice to apply. Understood that culture is important.

    Office Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at J. F. Ahern (Fort Worth, TX) in March 2019.

    Interview

    I applied online for a position out of the state at that time. The process began with a phone interview which was very positive and conversational. A video interview followed which was a little more stressful, only because I had never interviewed that way, but it went smoothly. I was willing to travel for a face to face interview, but it didn't prove necessary. After I took a personality test, they scheduled a second video interview to ask another question or two and then an offer was made.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at J. F. Ahern.

    Interview

    Slow, methodical process. 3 interviews following a phone interview, first with division VP and HR, 2nd with VP and EVP, third with VP and his subordinate manager. Interviewers are quite polished, and present the company in a great light. Upper level managers are pleasant to interview with, lower level managers can be the real bad cops in the process.

    Interview Questions

    • They had me take a personality test and were asking me about the results of that test without me having seen them. They wanted to see if I saw myself in an honest way, not biased.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was minimal in my case.
