    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in East Greenville, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Knoll (East Greenville, PA) in July 2019.

    Interview

    Nothing out of the ordinary - a couple phone screens and a couple in-person interviews. All went pretty smooth. What really sold me on the position was the focus on organic conversation (not scripted) and making sure the position is a two-way fit. This company seems very interested in hiring the right people, and has minimal red tape so they can make reasonable offers quickly. The process made me genuinely excited to work here.

    My offer took a while, but Knoll communicated clearly throughout the whole process, so it was not a big deal to me. When it came, it was exactly what we discussed up front, so they did not try to low ball me. Overall A+ experience.

    Intern Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Knoll (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Fairly simple. They're really just trying to get a feel for you and see if you'd fit in. Everyone there kind of fits in with each other. The department I interned for had a panel of the 4 people working in that department. The interview wasn't so bad. Got an offer on the spot, although I'm not sure that's always the case.

    Marketing Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Knoll (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Everyone seems to like working there, with lots of people who have been there for over 10 years. Clear opportunities to break down silos, drive more cross-portfolio selling. Some interviews were much more conversational, while one was a clear stress interview. Not sure if it was the person's personality or it was done for the sake of doing a "tough interview" under stress. Engaging CEO.

    Marketing Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Knoll.

    Interview

    Someone at Knoll contacted me via email after I'd applied. They asked me to come into NYC for an initial interview. That meant I'd have to take the afternoon off work to get there, but wanting the job, I agreed. We met for an hour, and that was it. Never heard from them again.

    I don't mind that they thought I wasn't a fit. But not even an email saying "No thank you" does rankle, especially since they met me in person, and I had to haul my butt all the way into the city for this one. My suggestion: if you are doing initial screenings, do them by phone, to save time and etc. for all parties involved. And do please at least send an auto email "thanks but no thanks" to those you've brought into the office, just to be polite.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Knoll.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly quick, however the interview itself was very tough to manage. It was almost like a test with an individual who was tough to read and have a conversation with. After taking time to travel to interview, over a month later and still no response.

    Technical Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in East Greenville, PA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Knoll (East Greenville, PA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    HR initiation, followed by IT and Business Interviews, where initial screening happens on phone followed by IT and Business Interviews. The people were great, however the big downside was the time consuming hiring process where each stage had couple of weeks waiting period. Hence I did not like the lag, and made up my mind to decline their offer.

    Temp. Agency called and asked if I was still looking for work? She asked me a few questions of my previous experience and told me that they would submit my resume to the hiring manager.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Knoll (East Greenville, PA).

    Interview

    Had to reschedule multiple times. Interview with many people several different times. As if working there was not enough already I was forced to interview with people that already knew me. People that thought it was ridiculous that I even had to "formally" sit down with them. At the end I was given a "we don't think you're a good fit" without detail.

    Dispatcher Interview

    Anonymous Employee in East Greenville, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Knoll (East Greenville, PA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    I applied through a temp service for a job with another company, but was sent for an interview based upon the experience listed on my resume. I interviewed with the temp service representative first, then the manager of the department to which I was applying. Was hired the same day, but that is most likely because the job had been vacant for a long time, and my experience and education were relevant. Hiring process usually takes 2-4 weeks. All candidates subject to drug testing.
