    Lead Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at SAM Companies (Dallas, TX) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Great Interview had an interview with senior management and mid level manager about skill and what I could bring to the table if hired. I was offered a job on the spot and promised additional duties and responsibility even though my resume specifically stated I had already pasted the level they wanted to hire me at. I was in a dead end job and took the job to prove my worth.

    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at SAM Companies (Austin, TX) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Entry HR staff to Senior staff phone and in person interviews. Managers where not well versed in interviewing nor was a Senior Associate forthright when asked questions why the reviews on glassdoor were so low. The reviews were dismissed as being several years old and not relevant. Not the case, many recent well-rounded reviews. By the time a decision was made I had moved on.

    Engineering CAD Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at SAM Companies in October 2018.

    Interview

    The entire process took about 4-6 weeks. From initial contact to job offer. It was very slow moving. In the actual interview the job description was different from how it was originally described, so the interview went differently then was expected. They asked my salary requirements and I gave them a number, they also asked if I would be flexible and I told them potentially and gave them a range in which I could flex. They offered me lower than both numbers. I very politely declined the offer since they offered me much lower than both numbers I have them. I then never heard back from them, not so much as a sorry to hear that or trying to offer me more. Less than 24 hours later I got a notification that they had reposted the job opening. This just goes to show you that this company doesn’t not value you as a person, just an employee. They don’t care about finding the proper candidate they just care about finding someone who will work for what they want them to work for and nothing more. The company gets bad reviews but I decided to give them a chance anyway and I think I dodged a bullet.

    real brief about the job. Comes off strict thinking he may know what he’s hiring for but in all he’s never surveyed and let’s you know he could have been a district judge but he turned it down. BS
