    EHS Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Milgard Manufacturing in August 2017.

    Interview

    Unprofessional!!!! I received a phone call from a recruiter who spent 25-30 minutes with many questions about my experience and thoughts. The interviewer was nice in the phone and told me she would get back to me...That's when I got an automated email back from a machine!!! That's as unprofessional as it gets. I took a half hour to be emailed by a machine? I'm not mad about not being selected because after finding out more it truest wasn't a good fit but a company that treats anyone like this should be red flagged for certain.

    The interview process was very laid back. The manager and supervisor both interviewed me. They asked pretty basic questions about prior experience. I made sure to do my research on the company to know what I was getting into.

    Interview

    I found it to be an excellent interview process. The phone interviews went well. I was able to skip the face to face interview due to being out of state and having interviewed with the company previously.

    Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Simi Valley, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Milgard Manufacturing (Simi Valley, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I received a phone call from a recruiter and after a brief talk, she set up an in-person interview with her. She had an emergency the day before and my interview was rescheduled with the HR Manager.
    The interview lasted about 1.5 hrs. He was polite, professional, friendly, and took notes occasionally. At the end of the interview, he said: "you might be able to get along with your prospective boss." Well, I'm experienced and intelligent enough to know that this meant I wasn't the right fit to work with him, although I wonder how he got to that conclusion.
    It is disappointing that he promised to get back to me the following week, yet he never did and even the recruiter who asked me to let her know how my interview went, didn't bother to respond to my email.

    My conclusion:
    Before the interview, I researched the company's reputation and found on Yelp, that it's less than satisfactory. While it worried me a little, I pursued this job regardless because I saw an opportunity to help improve their online reputation. What I neglected to remember is this golden rule: if a company's online reputation is unsatisfactory (e.g. too many complaints of the same nature, and in this case, lack of communication and follow up with customers), their internal processes (including the hiring process, i.e. follow up with candidates), may reflect the very same problem. Just something to consider when applying to jobs.

    Purchasing Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Aurora, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Milgard Manufacturing (Aurora, CO) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I took 10 days process before they set up for phone interview via email. The HR personnel called and after phone interview she said she was going to forward my resume to the Hiring Manager for next interview. I wrote thank you note for the HR as courtesy and told her that I was very interested with the position and looking forward for personal interview. It has been a week, I've never heard from them again. Just yesterday they posted the same job again, probably I'm not what they are looking for. They should have sent me e-mail to notify me that they decided to pursue with other candidates as courtesy.
