I interviewed at Oldcastle

Interview

I actually didn't interview with them per se as I was part of the staff of the company they took over. They were very professional, gave annual reviews, training, feedback and had an open door policy between staff and management.

I applied online. I interviewed at Oldcastle (Perrysburg, OH) in Sep 2020

Interview

I was told I'd be interviewing in front of 4 people. When I arrived I could tell they weren't expecting me, and it was nearly 15 minutes after the scheduled start time of the interview before they were ready. There were 3 people. An HR manager, a maintenance shift supervisor and a maintenance manager. The maintenance manager looked unimpressed and bland from the moment I walked in. He asked vague questions and clearly had no interest. It didn't even look like he was interested in being there period. The maintenance shift supervisor was much more interested. He asked questions in depth and inquired about my skills. He was very enthusiastic. The HR manager was really nice and had a neutral attitude. She asked HR related questions like "how many days calling off a month would i consider being excessive". The shift supervisor offered a walkthrough and I accepted. The building was dirtier than average with a LOT of hydraulic leaks. Especially considering they boasted their on-site hydraulic hose construction caps capabilities. The workers seemed lifeless and robotic and the environment did not seem pleasant. The last part of the interview REALLY confused me. (For reference, I've got two degrees in engineering. An associate in mechanical engineering technology and another in electrical. I also explained i know my way around multimeters and oscilloscopes. Also how I installed new 240v subpanels, 480v bus distributions, installed 480v central chillers and air compressors, and ran an entire facility by myself for 3 years. I correctly identified various potentiometers, SSR's, "ice cube" relays and other spare parts on the shelf as he tested my knowledge. Do you know after all this and more, one of the last questions this guy asked me- was "so you're familiar with the difference between a normally open switch and a normally closed one?" I really don't know what happened and at that point I was a loss for words. They never called back and a few weeks later I seen the position reposted. Went on to pass two in-depth assessments for the biggest soft drink producer in the world and they hired me less than a week later.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Oldcastle (Phoenix, AZ) in Mar 2019

Interview

It was an in-depth process, multiple rounds of phone screens, speaking with the recruiter, Regional HR Manager, followed by in person with 3 person manager panel. The panel interview was heavy on behavior type questions, with follow up/clarifying questions. The whole process was great, the recruiter always returned my messages in a timely manner, met great people in the panel. Even after i wasnt selected, the recruiter kept in touch and was helpful.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Oldcastle (Atlanta, GA) in Nov 2018

Interview

The interview took place on-campus. I submitted the job application and received notification for interview in a week. The interview was not nerve-wrecking, they just asked you about your major, how you heard about Oldcastle, your related experiences and how you think you could contribute your skills to the company, etc. Most of them are behavioral questions and there was no technical question for this job's first round of interview particularly.
