    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Stanley Black & Decker (Towson, MD) in January 2014.

    Interview

    A recruiter contacted me via LinkedIn. After a brief discussion, I was handed off to the main recruiter who works directly with SB&D. He was friendly and knowledgeable - a CPA. Apparently he is the only guy that SB&D uses for Finance recruitment. And he works with the CFO on the Finance staff development plans/reviews.

    He liked me and I visited the campus for an onsite interview. Nice location but I was struck with their mission statement - "A numbers organization with values". I heard some negative comments about B&D. Specifically, that they would fur low their staff to hit a quarterly number - not good management. As a Finance professional, I value hitting your numbers but not at the expense of your staff.

    Throughout the interview, I also got the sense there were other parts of their culture that did not match with me. The interviewers all mentioned a sense of competition among the staff. Competition, not excellence, this was strange. I felt SB&D pushes their staff to excel by feeding on other team member's failures.

    I lost my enthusiasm for the position mid-way through the interview process, and did not continue.
