    Project Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Stanley Black & Decker (Atlanta, GA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an HR representative by email and a couple of days later had a phone interview. I was contacted a week later for a face-to-face interview with Hiring Manager and 2 other employees. Interview was straightforward and everyone was nice. I was told I would hear back. I sent a thank you email the same day to HR, but didn't hear anything back for a couple of weeks. So then I called the HR representative and left a message for an update on the job status. They never called back. I guess its safe to say that I didn't get the position, but I was at least expecting to hear back with a "yes" or "no" or some sort of rejection email or something! I thought that was very unprofessional for HR to not follow-up considering I took time out of my day to come and interview in person. Not impressed with HR at all.

    Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Stanley Black & Decker (Austin, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for this position online and heard back about an interview fairly quickly. The first interview was a phone screen done by the hiring manager. The next phase of the interview process, which took place the next day, was a technical interview by phone. This portion of the interview covered questions relating to statistics, machine learning, and relational databases and lasted about 45 minutes. After this part of the interview I was asked to complete a data science project. I was told that the data science project needed to be turned in within 2 days. After completing the assignment (which took around 3-4 hours) I heard back within a few days from the hiring manager. I was told that I had done well on the assignment, and then I was asked to interview with the CIO of the Tools Department. This is when the interview process became frustrating. The CIO of the Tools Department cancelled and rescheduled my interview several times. One of the times the CIO didn't even bother canceling ahead of time. I received an email 30 minutes after our scheduled phone call that he would have to reschedule. It took over a month and a half of the CIO rescheduling to actually have a 15-minute conversation with him about the position. Our phone call consisted of him asking me perfunctory questions such as: "What is your background?" and "Why did you apply to this position?" After the call I followed up with the CIO by email thanking him for his time. I never heard from Stanley Black and Decker again.
