    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Oldcastle.

    Interview

    Interviewed via phone with recruiter based in New York. Mind you, I was sourced for this position and had not heard of this company before being contacted by the recruiter.
    After the phone screen, I had a face to face. Then I was asked to spend 6 hours on a separate day to meet "office staff". Basically I was contacted the next week regarding my salary, but I was not willing to accept this position for the same amount of money with a less flexible schedule. I was not offered the job over because of a $5,000 difference. Everyone please note, I was honest in my initial interview with the recruiter and did not mention that my salary requirement were negotiable. The recruiter stated that my salary request was just fine. After the recruiter reached out to me, and I stated that my salary request was firm I didn't hear from anyone again. Keep in mind, I took a vacation day to sit with these people and didn't even get a decent email to state that we have moved on. Don't ever work for a company like this.

They answered all of my questions and I left the interview feeling like a million bucks. A week later or so I had a second interview. During the waiting period, I never felt lost in the process. Everything was very transparent and professional with open communication. A couple of days later I was offered the role. Very easy process!

    Too easy, wondered what was wrong, found out the hard way. I was curious why the interviewer was more cryptic than most and only wanted to discuss pay and benefits

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Oldcastle.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email several days later from a member of the talent acquisition team to schedule a phone interview - once we finally were able to find a time that worked for both of us, the phone interview lasted about 40 minutes. After the interview, the person I spoke with said that he wants to move forward with me and was going to pass my information along to his manager so that they could review my resume and connect with me. I never got a follow up email (even after sending a thank you one to the interviewer that I spoke with) and never heard from them again. This didn't seem really professional to me - if the talent acquisition person was not interested in me, then he shouldn't have told me that he would pass along my information and let me know via phone or email that he wasn't moving forward.
