    Finance Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at KaVo Kerr Group (Orange, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Phone Interview then
    1st round In-person Interview then
    2nd round In-person interview

    Before I got to my 1st In-person interview the HR department wanted to vet all 5 of my references. I had to send an email to each of the 5 references and have them fill out a questionnaire regarding my work performance and overall personality.

    A note to the HR department- If you are to have such a thorough reference check, that is fine, but you might want to save it for the last round of interviews AFTER I have had the chance to meet all the interviewers. Can you imagine if I had to send a reference questionnaire during 1st round interviews for each job I was interested in? My references would tire of it and no longer fill them out!

    You have a really bad process regarding your reference checks. Please save your reference checks to the last step and only if you're going to offer me the position. This is no way to treat potential employees or people....period!

    I applied through a college career fair and had a phone interview a few days later. I did a couple phone interviews then was invited out to NC for the last round of interviews. I had five on-site interviews and also did a sales role play for about 11 people who worked for the company. It was a nerve-racking interview process, but I enjoyed it.

    Interview

    They bring the final people out to Charlotte, NC for an in depth interview process. There are multiple interviews back to back. They, also, as that you do a role play with with someone you haven't met while the people you interviewed with watch. This gives them a chance to critique your skills, and it gives them a better idea of how you do what you do.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at KaVo Kerr Group (Orange, CA).

    Interview

    HR phone interview, online references, 1:1 manger interview, panel interview

    They have a ridiculous online reference process that you're supposed to fill out before the interview. It requires you to provide contact information of 2 previous supervisors and 3 other people. References are checked with a skills survey prior to the panel.

    I interviewed with the panel and they were all very nice people. However, HR calls me back 2 weeks later asking me to give them my current manger's contact info before they make a decision. I refused to jeopardize my current job and have them contact my boss in the "hope" they'd extend an offer.

    Reference checks should be completed after you've selected your candidate, nobody wants to risk their current position and have their boss contacted by another company prior to an offer. This is obviously a poor reflection on their archaic interview process.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at KaVo Kerr Group (Orange, CA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Met with 3 mid level managers and the Plant Manager. Spent 30-45 minutes with each discussing my experience and getting to know their expectations for the role. None of the questions were all that hard. Seemed like the managers were unsure about the purpose of the role. Once hired, I actually did things very different than discussed in interview.
