    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at JELD-WEN (Charlotte, NC) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I first got a call from Jeld-Wen's Talent Acquisition Manager, Tom, for a phone interview. Then another phone interview was given by the Project Managers. After that, I was invited into the office for a face to face interview with the Project Managers. A week later, I was asked to come in and interview with the hiring manager and another member of the team.

    Tom, was on point and was in constant communication with me along the process. The entire team was very personable and easy to get along with. I am excited for my new career and the opportunities ahead of me. It truly seems like a great team and I am proud to be a part of it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at JELD-WEN (Bend, OR) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I first had a 30 minute phone interview with a talent acquisition specialist from Charlotte. The next week I had a 45 minute interview with the two manager and the supervisor for the position. They sent me two assessments to complete online, one was a personality test and the other included grammar, simple mathematics and pattern recognition. In total the assessments took about 70 minutes. After they reviewed the results I was invited for a 3 hour onsite interview in Bend, OR. This interview included a face to face interview with the two supervisors and another test. This one was a programming aptitude test, it was timed and took 75 minutes to complete. After completing the test I was told that they would get back to me in a week. After a week and a half of not hearing back I attempted to get a hold of them via both phone and email for an update, both of which were ignored. After another week I yet again tried to get contact them, this attempt was also ignored. Three weeks after the face to face interview I received a generic rejection email saying that i had not been selected for the position. The entire process took about two months. I would not recommend applying to the company.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult questions in the interview were very vague questions about how I would act in certain situations, however there were not sufficient information to answer them effectively. It was obvious that the interviewers were unprepared for the interview, at one point in the interview they even said that they had not even prepared any questions.   Answer Question

    Application

    Interview

    It wasn't a brief process. First a phone screen with a recruiter, then a phone interview with the hiring manager, then the divisional director. Then they flew me out to the site to meet with the hiring manager again, the benefits manager, the VP of compensation and the plant manager. The day after I returned home I interviewed by phone with the VP of HR. Two days later I got a blanket "no thank you" email. No feedback or phone call.

    Application

    I was contacted by HR rep after submitting online. Short screening interview with HR. Next was phone screen with hiring manager. Hard to get a word in edge wise. Weeks waiting for next step. Invited to headquarters for face to face. HR rep barely had time time to say hello. Offered nothing about the company. Good interview but hiring manager did most of the talking. Told there was two other candidates. Presented a 30-60-90 day plan and a template for policy. Hiring manager asked me to stay and participate on a team call regarding a project. Had good interaction. Waited weeks again for next step. Told there will be interview with 2nd level VP supervisor. Waited week for call. Just rehashed hiring manager questions. HR rep was virtually absent during the process. Didn't get invited to 2nd face to face with General Counsel. Process seemed to be made up as it moved along.
