    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at John Crane (Chicago, IL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online, and then was emailed to set up a brief phone screen with the recruiter. I was then emailed a week later to come in for an hour, onsite interview. Everyone was very nice and easy to talk to. The interviews were very informal and conversational. The only downside might be that with such short interviews, you don't get a great feel of the company/ position.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at John Crane in September 2015.

    Interview

    1. Multiple emails and phone screen from HR about 3 weeks after I applied.
    2. After successful phone screen I was scheduled for an in-person interview. This interview time was changed twice after I agreed to the time (to accommodate the interviewer's boss who actually didn't show up in person) so I had to take the day off work. If I didn't fit both interviewer's schedules, it was made very clear that I probably wouldn't be considered.
    3. Interviewer that showed up was falling asleep during the interview. Obviously seemed disengaged.
