    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lexington-Fayette, KY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Messer Construction (Lexington-Fayette, KY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It was a brief 20 minute phone conversation to see if my work experience matched the positions needs. After that, HR gives a recommendation to the actual person that will conduct the interviews.
    The HR lady I spoke with was very nice and I felt my past experiences fell in line with the needs of this position. At the end of our conversation, She told me someone would be in touch to schedule an interview and if I had any questions to email her. Later that day, I did have a few questions, so I did as asked and emailed her. I waited over a week and had not heard back so I tried emailing again. Nothing!
    I find it rude and unprofessional to not respond to an email. If I'm not a candidate for a position tell me while I'm on the phone with you or email me back telling me I'm not. To leave people wondering if they will get a call back is rude. I was already a little leery about working for them since they are a smaller contractor with limited vertical movement. Even if I do get a call back at this point, I would probably decline.

    Interview Questions

    Product Management Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cincinnati, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Messer Construction (Cincinnati, OH).

    Interview

    Very slow! It was nearly 5 months and three interviews before I was finally offered the job! I called many times to check on status and never got an answer or returned call. I passed up other offers becauseof all the BS promises that never came to ffruition in the interview. Make sure EVERYTHING is in writing if you decide to risk your career taking on a position with this sinking company.
