    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Johnson Controls (Milwaukee, WI) in December 2012.

    Interview

    I received an email from a recruiter in Milwaukee requesting my availability to setup a phone interview. I emailed her my availability but did not get a response after a week. I then called her and she scheduled the interview. She took my number down and said she will call me. On the day and time of the phone interview, she did not call. I called her and left her a message to see if the interview will still take place. I also emailed her but she never got back to me to explain why the interview did not take place or if she was going to reschedule. I left her another message after then but she never responded.

    I'm appauled by the negative experience and extremely poor communication by this recruiter. The marketing recruiter is either overwhelmed by the workload or is incompetent. I would have expected much better from a company like Johnson Controls.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Johnson Controls.

    Interview

    The phone interview seemed typical. The in person interview was several 1/2 hour meetings that seemed completely unstructured except the interaction with the human resources consultant. I was not given much time at all with the actual hiring leader. I had to follow up post offer to ask questions of the leader about the role from their perspective and their management style.

    Reasons for Declining

    The offer did not include all the information needed to make a decision. I had to drive to get information about relocation and benefits.The offer was different than discussed in the interview and was less as an overall compensation package than my current position for a promotional role. There was NO room for negotiation and it seemed like an inconvenience that I asked. The hiring process was not at all like the reputation of the organization as an employer. I really wanted the position based on what I had heard about the company being employee friendly...but the selection process was not candidate friendly or focused.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Johnson Controls (Milwaukee, WI) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Three-plus hours of interviews were held in a 12x12 windowless room on the first floor of the building. Met with the HR representative, hiring manager and a manager whom I would work with. First two interviews felt like an interrogation, with questions about whom I knew at certain companies/organizations, why I left certain jobs, etc., as opposed to a skill or personality-based interview/discussion. HR representative walked through each career experience on my resume dating back more than 20 years ago. The level of enthusiasm for the company was very low; indicated a lot of change was taking place.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Johnson Controls.

    Interview

    Straight forward and easy, not complicated. Final decision made by the senior management, HR advices only. Customer focus and sales is highly appreciated as a skill.
    Recruiters are very professional. They are former headhunters, know their job very well.

    Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Johnson Controls (Zürich (Switzerland)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Bad experience and process. They kept me on hold for more than 3 months. Imagine if this would have happen to your customers... would you treat them in the same way, despite all challenges that you can have internally I would have at least informed and kept the candidate updated regularly... Not a good impression of the company that is going through significant change, starting with merge and new CEO.
