I applied online. I interviewed at Pentair in Jun 2021

Interview

There have been 2 phone interviews scheduled where I did not receive a call ~ ghosted on the phone interview. I emailed the contact 10 minutes into the first one. She apologized for "missing our appointment" and could reschedule, which she did about 10 days later and then never called again. Really strange.

I applied through an employee referral The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pentair (Raleigh, NC) in May 2021

Interview

First was the initial phone screen, followed by the hiring manager phone interview. I believe they have a more in-depth interview with the hiring manager as a 3rd round, and a phone interview with other team members as well, but I didn't make it that far.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Pentair (Minneapolis, MN) in May 2021

Interview

The interview process was extremely lengthy and included debrief conversations with the hiring manager between every step. A lot of interview questions focused on dealing with conflict. This was a very involved process for a seemingly junior level role.

Average Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Pentair (Milwaukee, WI) in Apr 2021

Interview

The interview process was long and repetitive. Over the course of about 8 weeks I had meetings with about 8 different people. Sometimes doubling back to meet with a hiring manager. Overall the communication between interviewers seemed to be missing. Towards the end of the process the recruiter shared information that suggested it was very likely I would get the position, but in the end they went with an internal candidate because she had more event planning experience, which was brought up only once ever during the entire process.

Easy Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Pentair (Minneapolis, MN) in Jan 2021

Interview

Contacted by company recruiter. Had six total interviews asking the same questions over and over. From start to finish the process lasted 6 weeks. I am sure they miss out on many recruits because they lose faith in the whole process. There is cautious hiring and their is just unnecessary waste of a candidates time. Very long process and pretty much a waste of time.
