    Principal Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at S.C. Johnson (Racine, WI).

    Interview

    STAR process - one or two people would sit and ask a series of predetermined questions that they didn't veer from ... when the questions didn't apply, it was very awkward. There were 7 hour long interviews and one over lunch that was supposed to be just "natural conversation" but of course there were predetermined questions in there too

    Senior Director Marketing Innovation Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed at S.C. Johnson (Racine, WI) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I was surprised by the poorly ran recruiting process I experienced from this company with an excellent reputation. I think anybody that takes the time to spend a day interviewing on site deserves to be contacted with feedback and a notification of a decision, especially for an executive role like this. People were polite (for the most part), but a timeline like this can put most people off, it didn't to me because I had the belief this was a right choice. This is the timeline of my communications:

    7/12/16 - Applied to job on line directly at SCJ's site
    9/20/16 - Contacted by third party recruiter asking if I was interested in a confidential job, turns out it was a job I had applied to two months before
    10/27 - Phone screen with hiring manager

    radio silence - no feedback from anyone

    11/19/16 - External recruiter confirms on-site interviews for 12/20/16
    12/18/16 - Call from SJC to postpone interviews for 1/12/17
    1/10/17 - Call from SCJ recruiter to reschedule for 2/2
    2/2/17 - on-site interviews, thank you notes sent

    Radio silence from recruiter and from SJC

    3/2 Still no feedback from anybody

    Associate Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at S.C. Johnson (Racine, WI) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted on LInkedIn by a recruiter for SCJ. I had 3 phone interviews (Recruiter, HR Manager, Hiring Manager) within 3 weeks during the Holidays which is generally an impossible time for interviews. I was then brought onsite for a final interview. I had an offer in hand two days later. I was so impressed with how responsive everyone at SCJ was, from the recruiter to the Hiring manager. Everyone was very professional!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at S.C. Johnson (Racine, WI).

    Interview

    I was very excited to interview at SC Johnson, having had a great internship experience. This interview process was incredibly disappointing, however, and ended my career interests with SC Johnson. The interviewers were not professional, with all of them but one checking and manipulating their cell phones during the interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at S.C. Johnson (East Lansing, MI) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I got the interview through a career fair at my college and was asked a series of questions from three recruiters. The questions were mostly behavioral and I was asked to stem those answers from work experience. Overall the interview was not too stressful and the recruiters did a good job at making me comfortable throughout the interview

    Screening phone interview: the interviewer wants to know what you have done in your previous job. He will ask about what you listed in your resume.
