    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Leggett & Platt (Monroe, GA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Interview and testing went well and was not difficult. I was hired but then fired immediately following the physical, which asked of medical history. Do not apply here if you cannot lift heavy boxes ,50+ lbs, over your head and walk around the room. I was told this was going to be a range of motion test and was very easy.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Leggett & Platt (Tarján (Hungary)) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Very slow as normally with huge companies. There are more rounds (2-3) when you need to travel to the company, talk to local supervisor and HR representative. First I handed in my CV to local HR advisor and in a couple of weeks got a phone invitation to the interview. First it was only HR presence then again a couple of weeks and had the next round with Branch manager. Again some time and I was the chosen one

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Leggett & Platt in February 2015.

    Interview

    After initially applying on their website, they sent an email requesting a detailed employment history form be filled out (though almost all of these questions were answered with the initial application). After submitting that information, there was an email to set up a phone screening shortly thereafter. Questions were very basic, and it was kept to 30 minutes on the dot. After that, they set up an in-person interview that was scheduled for a few weeks later, which was fairly lengthy. Final contact came a few weeks after that.

    Interview Questions

    • Very detailed break-down of resume and education/employment history. There were some general industry questions and specific questions about L&P, but mostly it was background-specific.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Leggett & Platt (Carthage, MO) in December 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was straight forward. I first had a phone interview and then few days later was called for a second interview. The second interview was two weeks later. That interview lasted about an hour and a half. I was told at the end of the interview I would receive an email to attach my references to. I never received that email. I was called a week later and told they gave the job to someone else.

    • They asked me to describe my previous positions and how they compared to the internal auditor position.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Leggett & Platt.

    Interview

    Apply online through an applicant tracking system. Resume is very important since that is your first opportunity to be noticed. If they are interested, they will request more information or a Career History Form. Next will be a phone interview (about an hour). The top 2-3 candidates will get a 1:1 interview (2-3 hours). Finally, reference checks, drug screen. Don't be afraid to call the Talent Advisor and inquire about your status or the process. They can be very helpful.

    Negotiation

    Don't be afraid to negotiate. Don't ask for the moon and back up your request. They want to be able to pay you the best salary they can offer you out of the gate.
