    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fontana, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Oldcastle (Fontana, CA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    I was first contacted by an HR administrator who set-up a 1:1 interview with the Area Sales Manager. After the interview with the ASM I received a call that I would be interviewing with his boss next. A few days later I had a phone interview with the Regional Sales Manager. After the phone interview I was called by a Outside Sales Rep. to schedule a day to "shadow" in the field. The day after working in the field I had a 1:1 interview with the President and General Manager. I was told I would hear from the Area Sales Manager by Friday and never did. Finally after calling and e-mailing I was told the other candidate received the offer.

    Claims Team Leader Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Oldcastle (Atlanta, GA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    I was contacted via e-mail by an admin. asst. in the HR department. She scheduled the interview via e-mail. i interviewed with 5 top level directors/executives. The interviews were one on one but because there were 5 separate interviews it took almost 4 hours. I'm not complaining because 1:1 interviews are much easier than group/panel interviews in my opinion. I was told that they would have a decision by the end of the week. I did not hear anything by the end of the week so I e-mailed a few of the interviewers the following week. My e-mails were ignored. After a couple weeks I assumed I did not get the job. Over a month after the interview I received a rejection e-mail from HR. I am a woman minority and I am not saying that's the reason why I did not get the job but I will say that I did not see much diversity in the people that work there. They are mostly all male and white.

    Marketing Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Oldcastle.

    Interview

    Phone screen and in person interview. In person interview was actually a group interview, which had not been communicated to me in advance. It was me and I interviewed with three people around a conference table. The people were incredibly smug and somewhat condescending although my credentials were more impressive then theirs. I was put off by their attitudes, location of the job, the lack of interview organization, and the total lack of follow up on their end after the interview.
