    Corporate Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Main Street Renewal (Austin, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The hiring manager was professional, well prepared and had vetted my background thoroughly. Even after we agreed it was not the right fit monetarily the manager was willing to help support my job search efforts with referrals to his network. I got the impression whoever works with this gentleman will be well taken care of and have an excellent career opportunity that challenges the individual while still considering work-life balance.

    Construction Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Main Street Renewal (Seattle, WA) in January 2019.

    Interview

    I initially applied for a Construction Superintendent position at Main Street Renewal at the beginning of December. I was then contacted by a recruiting coordinator about a week later to set up a 30 minute phone screening. This screening was informative; we went over the company, position, and benefits. We then briefly went over my background and since it seemed to be a good fit we moved forward to a 30 minute phone interview with the VP of Construction. Before this phone screen I was directed to take a couple exams online that took maybe an hour in total to completed. The next step was an in-person interview about 2 weeks later with the VP of Construction who flew into Seattle to conduct the interview. The interview was very casual, more of a conversation and lasted about an hour. I received an offer of employment less then 24 hours later.

    The whole process was very quick, even with the holidays right in the middle, and everyone at Main Street Renewal was helpful, informative, and decisive.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Main Street Renewal (Austin, TX) in September 2018.

    Interview

    I was contacted for a phone interview and setup a time to talk. I was already a bit weary - their Glassdoor reviews are high but their Google and Indeed reviews are pretty low with some pretty alarming things on them. I had my phone interview and the guy was extremely arrogant and abrasive. Would not consider this company to be a place I would want to work!
