Application

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at PrimeSource Building Products (Lebanon, TN) in Mar 2020

Interview

Applied online on their website. Passed to next step of personality assessment; next step was verbal and math assessments; next step was being invited to do a phone interview. I was told that the position was given to an internal candidate, so I didn't move on past the phone interview. Something to keep in mind that I may have failed at, the above may have been a tactic to see if I would "sell" myself or just take her explanation (like a customer saying they went with a competitor). I don't know, but maybe keep this in mind if it happens to you

Interview

The interview was fairly simple. Just the standard questions that you hear at every interview, there was nothing complicated or anything that stood out. i did find it odd that I interviewed with osme people that were not on the team or that I would even work with.

Interview Questions
  • Can you provide an example of how dealt with a difficult person on a previous project or company and how did you handle it.

I applied online. The process took 4 months. I interviewed at PrimeSource Building Products (United States)

Interview

Phone call and then a video conference which discussed my previous job experience, skills, know how, etc. There were very easy questions and if you have any experience at all, you'll feel it is easy. The testing process is a little more intense and you must understand collagr math in order to be picked for an interview.

One interview with an HR representative from Texas. Went very well. Then a week later an interview with the hiring manager. I have been waiting for 3 days since to hear back. Not sure if I am being impatient.

Interview

I applied online through LinkedIn and almost a week later was contacted by a recruiter from PrimeSource. The phone interview was brief and only lasted maybe 10 minutes, it was your standard phone interview where they just ask about your work experience and explain the job. The recruiter then said he would forward my information to the hiring manager, I was then contacted by the hiring manager several days later for a in person interview. The in person interview was done with two of the managers in the department I was applying for. The interview was very relaxed and they where both very nice and it didn't feel like your typical interview that can feel very stiff and uncomfortable. They didn't just ask me questions from a list, they actually seemed interested in getting to know me and why I was right for the job. I can honestly say it was the best interview I've ever experienced.

I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PrimeSource Building Products (Stockton, CA) in Jul 2018

Interview

Phone interviews, and multiple in-person interviews. Very misleading. Through the process, they were continually making comments like "Your a great fit", "When you start, we can quickly move on this...", "We have no concerns about you taking this position" and many others. I left each interview feeling like a million bucks! They said that I would hear from them about moving forward by such & such day. I was very excited about the new opportunity with PrimeSource. Then nothing! I am very disapointed.

Interview Questions
  • They Ghosted me! This is why employers are getting this type of action performed on them. Managers and Hiring departments, this is not the "Great Recession". Those of us in the industry see each other regularly and we talk to each other. If you wonder why you cannot find a good candidate, look in the mirror.

Interview

Weird. Interviewer started by asking about my childhood. And asked about little else. An outside recruiter was used who wasn't the most sophisticated recruiter I've ever engaged with.
