    Production Operator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kent, WA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Rexam (Kent, WA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was brief. The hiring manager gave a good overview of the company and its operations. I did get the sense that the company has grown quite fast in recent years, and is having some difficulties managing its operations. I also got the impression that there is a relentless focus on cost reduction, which may or may not lead to a good work environment.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Rexam.

    Interview

    On site group interview with Plant, HR, and Production Managers. Each manager took turns asking questions from a script. Most questions were basic behavioral based interview questions which led to more specific questions about KPI's and experience with various manufacturing equipment and tools. The questions I asked were answered completely.

    Project Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Rexam (Buffalo Grove, IL).

    Interview

    Did a phone screen with the recruiter followed by an onsite 1:1 with the hiring manager. I was supposed to meet with another person that was a key relationship to the open position during my onsite, but he/she was a no show that day. The onsite ended up being a complete waste of time. I drove a long way to get to the worksite and the interview was over in 30 minutes. The hiring manager spent 15 minutes telling me about herself and her career with the company and the last 15 minutes drilling me about why I had left my previous companies. When he/she was done with questioning my job changes, he/she asked if I had any questions, and then walked me out of the building. During our walk out he/she told me that there was an internal candidate they were considering and that he/she just wanted me to have a heads up. About a week later I received a phone call from the recruiter explaining that they decided to go in a different direction. I appreciated that he/she actually took the time to deliver the news over the phone, but that didn't make up for the complete waste of my time on the part of the hiring manager, who by the way was very high up in the company.
