    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Scotts Miracle-Gro in September 2016.

    Interview

    i applied via the website for the position. surprisingly, i received an email from a corporate recruiter requesting a phone screen and my availability to discuss the position in more detail. within the week we spoke and it was the typical phone screen with some behavioral based questions. the only thing i found peculiar was the the HR rep stated that this plant manager position would be "training" an older operations manager. my question is and was: why do you need plant manager if i was going to be training a replacement? sounded real fishy to me. i got the typical politically correct answer "...scotts is a very large company with many opportunities for plant managers..." okay. so why not interview for those particular plants?
    at the end of phone screen i got the proverbial "you will hear from us within a week in regards to next steps...."
    of course i have heard nothing.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Scotts Miracle-Gro (Marysville, OH) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I had multiple interviews with various levels within the Marketing department. The interview questions were fairly common as with any interview. One of the higher level directors acted like she did not want to be there. It seemed to be a waste of time for her.

    The panel presentation lasted about an hour and the same director acted disinterested and did not offer any visual feedback. It seemed like she already had her person selected..

    Interview

    People from HR dept are very effective giving answers and they accommodate you in a timely manner. Then you have the opportunity to do a Hireview interview which was something new for me and it was OK.
    Then you've got to be interviewed by the job's position boss which also was a great guy.
