    Human Resources Compliance Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakland, CA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Matson (Oakland, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    After submitting an application on Matson's career site, an HR Manager contacted me via email and scheduled a phone screen. It doesn't appear that the company has recruiters. I never spoke with one.

    On the day the phone screen was scheduled, I never received a call. I emailed the HR Manager and she responded that she would like to reschedule to another day and time. After speaking with the HR Manager for around 30 minutes, she said that she would reach out to me to schedule an in-person interview with the team.

    The day of the in-person interview, the HR Manager contacted me via email and said that she would not be there for my interview and that I would instead meet with the hiring manager and two other team members.

    The interview went well. It was mostly informal and conversational. The company has nice offices in Oakland, and the atmosphere was relaxed. My impression, though, was that the HR Department is stretched extremely thin, is almost frantically disorganized, and doesn't really know what they needed in an HR Compliance Manager role, which was a new role for the department and company.

    The final word from last of three interviewers was that they would contact me regarding potential next steps. The HR Manager knew that I was an active candidate, so she asked that I keep her updated regarding my status with other potential employers. A week after the interview, I sent a follow-up email to the HR Manager to update her, but I never received a response. The job posting I had applied to was removed from the company's career site for a couple weeks, and was then republished.

    I have never had a potential employer, especially one where I had been invited in for an in-person interview, not send me any update regarding the status of my candidacy. This experience has left me with the impression that Matson is disorganized, unprofessional, and unsophisticated. I've likely been spared a truly terrible employment experience.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Matson (Oakland, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Phone screen with recruiter then face-to-face with recruiter then phone screen with hiring manager then face-to-face with hiring manager and another manager then another face-to-face group panel interview with various managers. Process took about 2 months. Slow process. Fickle-minded. Don't waste your time with this company. If you've applied with them and it has taken more than 2 weeks since the process begun without even the slightest of a decision, withdraw your application because they are just wasting your time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Matson (Phoenix, AZ) in February 2012.

    Interview

    I was hired after talking to someone for less than 3 minutes. They did not ask many questions of me gave me a start date and that was it. Although to be fair they use a temp agency to hire so that may be why the interview process was so slight because the agency prescreen applicants for them which enables them to spend less time interviewing candidates.
