    Interview

    good. It was through campus recruiting. They asked me only STAR questions. The interviewers were very polite and welcoming. It was a good experience overall. I did not get an offer however, I guess I did not match the position well.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SC Johnson (Chicago, IL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. Received email from a recruiter to schedule phone interview the following week. Interview was short. About 10 questions. Recruiter determined I was not going to be a good fit for the role based on previous salary. Recruiter suggest other titles to watch for possible open positions that would be a better fit.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SC Johnson in June 2017.

    Interview

    I received a phone interview request from the recruiter the day after I applied for the job asking to schedule a call with the hiring manager the following day. They understood it was very short notice but were at the end of the process and looking to wrap things up quickly (could have scheduled the following week if that was my only availability). The recruiter was super nice and helpful, great communication and provided a lot of information on the company and the hiring manager I’d be interviewing with.
    The phone interview with the hiring manager was good, very friendly and easy to talk to. Only exception was that I noticed he asked a lot of irrelevant questions unrelated to my experience that were more about the company I work for and departments I don’t even work with. I found that to be very odd and off-putting. Other than that it was a great experience, would apply for jobs at SCJ again.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at SC 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

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at SC Johnson (Waxdale, WI) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I was reached out to. Brought in, interviewed, and offered position. Could not close gap on salary for that position. 6 months later, was reached out to again personally by hiring manager for higher position on same team. Interviewed, and was ghosted afterwards. Followed up with team, not a single response. No salary could now draw me to work for a company that operates in that way.

    Interview Questions

    • "S.T.A.R." methodology. A template style array of questions. lack of connection to the actual candidate.   Answer Question

    Senior Director Marketing Innovation Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed at SC 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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at SC Johnson (White Plains, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    was brought in by headhunter. Had phone screen with headhunter than president two days later. Was flown into NY for a full day of interviews a week later. Got to the office around noon. was made to wait outside their office for 35 minutes without being offered anything to drink. brought into the presidents office to meet with him in-person. During our interview, he accepted multiple personal phone calls and was on email for a majority of the conversation. Halfway through he mentioned that the rest of the folks on my interview schedule were "busy" and there would be no more meetings.

    Headhunter wouldnt even return my phone call afterwards. Stay away. Very unprofessional
