    Contract Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Masco Contractor Services.

    Interview

    I applied for one position, was asked by HR if I would consider a Contract Manager position as I am better suited for that role and they had an opening coming up, I agreed outlining my salary requirements. I had a phone pre-interview with HR. From there I met with the person who was going to run the Division, we had a successful interview and was told once they sorted some things out I would be called to interview with the CFO and Attorney. I was told it would be for the Contract Manager position or a Negotiator position should a current employee who was being transferred to the new division decide to become the Manager. I could appreciate this and was prepared for either position, knowing they knew my salary requirements already. In the meantime, he suggested I attend events the HR person was going to invite me to so I could meet other employees. I was invited to a Networking event, the HR woman knew I was driving an hour and half, arrived to discover there was in fact no meeting and ended up at a dinner with the HR personal and another candidate, which was more than a little awkward. I then drove again up to the area to meet with the CFO and Attorney. In my first meeting of the day I discovered the Contract Manager position was not in fact an option, not because the other woman took it, but because they decided against hiring one (information that I should have been told prior to taking the drive, as this changed a lot of things for me). And that they would require all hires to start as Reviewers, which is unusual, I could understand requiring some reviewer training and demonstration of reviewing capabilities but to hire an experienced Negotiator and require them to Review for 3 months would again have been nice to know and saved me the drive given the salary requirements I already laid out from the start. I had two lovely interviews, both ending with I would be going to the next step, I liked the people I met with and was willing to continue on knowing they knew my salary expectations. You could imagine my shock receiving a terse email the following afternoon dismissing me as a candidate with no explanation, except to say they could provide no further encouragement or feedback. Given all I received was positive feedback and tons of encouragement, this was disappointing and frustrating to say the least. It was bad enough they did a bait and switch as to the actual job they were prepared to offer, and didn't properly keep me informed as to the huge switch in the positions, that they had me drive twice over 3 hours round trip knowing full well they had not been honest with me, but then to be given nothing useful as feedback, knowing I left both of the last interviews on positive notes is more than a little upsetting. I should mention this process took over a month. It was a complete and total waste of my time, energy, and funds going to and from the three sets of meetings. They should have been honest and kept in better communication with me about the change in their needs, and not wasted my time.

    Senior Manager, Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Daytona Beach, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Masco Contractor Services (Daytona Beach, FL) in June 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process at MCS was quick and efficient. Initial contact to offer took less than month, and involved a trip to sunny Central Florida. The process started with an HR phone screen; followed by two video interviews; ending with a day-long marathon interview. The interviews were typical behaviorally based questions, with conversation woven throughout. I got a great sense of the company, the people and the future outlook. Everyone involved was professional and passionate about MCS. It was intense, but an enjoyable experience.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    An initial offer was present slightly below my initial salary requirement, but they were open to negotiation and we were able to find common ground within the day. The hiring manager presented the offer (more rare than you may think), and the recruiter handled most of the negotiations. It was a smooth and well defined process.

    Reasons for Declining

    They seem really full of themselves and all the neurotic security made me nervous because really? What kind of contracting business needs that unless they make a lot of people really angry. I mean, its not like they are a top secret government agency
