    Lean Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Swagelok.

    Interview

    Applied to positions that were a close fit, selected for a phone interview for lean leader. Phone interview had to be rescheduled twice due to HR being unable to commit to provided time slots. I waited for promised feedback based on input from their side, then followed up a week to hear "I have not heard anything so cant really tell you anything". This is similar to another collegues experience that had issues during an actual offer process. Be careful and keep another offer in your pocket just incase.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Swagelok (Solon, OH) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Basic phone screen from HR. The issue was that the interviewer had only been with Swagelok 2 months and knew nothing about the company. It was a very unprofessional interview. What compounded the problem was that the interviewer was freshly out of college and was very much lacking in knowledge of the position and industry.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Swagelok in July 2016.

    Interview

    Application process took ~2 weeks. Initial application through the website, received email next day from an outsourced recruiter. Given an initial phone screen, then invited to interview onsite a few days later. Following an SAT-style aptitude test, there was a rotational interview process, first with colleagues, then with hiring manager. Total process took ~ 4 hours. All were pleasant and professional, particularly the hiring manager. Followed up with recruiter and was told I'd have feedback for an additional onsite interview in the next couple of days.

    After a couple days had passed, I reached out to the recruiter via email and phone, but was unable to get any feedback for about a week, at which point I was informed that I did not get the position.

    Marketing Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Swagelok in June 2016.

    Interview

    The process took over two months from start to finish, with essentially no communication initiated by anyone at the company. HR is very impersonal and is a poor "face" of the company.

    I interviewed with three different people, in one-hour segments, all of whom had a different vision for the role. Without getting too detailed, it was clear that 2 out of the 3 didn't really want to be involved in the interview process. The third, a hiring manager, was a poor representative of the company's values. From bad mouthing his previous employer, to second guessing senior management decisions, his arrogance and disdain for his position in the company (and life) was evident.

    Not a good experience.

    Communications Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Swagelok (Cleveland, OH) in March 2016.

    Interview

    One phone interview with the hiring manager. Moved on to an onsite testing process and two one-hour panel interviews. I was onsite for a total of four hours. Despite multiple follow up contacts, I did not receive any response from the company on my candidacy or the status of the position (which is not very professional or respectful, in my opinion, considering the time commitment to the process).

    Interview Questions

    • Typical questions about my background, how I've handled situations, etc.   1 Answer

    Sourcing Specialist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Swagelok (Solon, OH) in February 2016.

    Interview

    It was a pretty straight forward phone interview with typical behavioral questions. They drove more into detail on specific experience with contracts and contract negotiation. Also asked for a specific example of difficulty with contract negotiations and how resolved it. Sourcing is divided into 3 groups: raw material, components, and then expense group. I wish they would supply a bit more detail on job descriptions so aware where the potion falls prior to interview.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    I interviewed with several people on a one to one basis, each one lasting 30 minutes. I thought the interviews went quite well. Sent thank you notes via email and by snail mail. Followed up every two weeks only to be told that I was still being considered.

    Gave up after 3 months. Company should determine if they're going to move forward before having people come in for a lengthy interview. Very time consuming for someone who is already employed.
