    Solutions Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pleasanton, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at The Clorox Company (Pleasanton, CA) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Manager described position then I detailed my experience, education, and fit. Then two P2P team analysts discussed position for an additional hour. Detailed P2P Clorox Enterprise Issues: users not understanding new tools, application usability, poor app release qualification methods, low or no help-resources availability, scheduling issues, unresolved process exceptions, lack of training, lack of process auditing, lack of process enforcement, low process maturity and capability in some Finance areas, not understood support roles or process ownership, unresolved U.S. financial tax exception issues with W9s, supplier database security breach issues, and management-admitted communication and notification issues. Not hired even with MBA, Master in CS, Bachelors in technical writing, complete knowledge of Clorox SCM, and 40 years in business development and process quality development. 100% interview was NOT based on skills, expertise, or education, apparently. I closed with not just how to solve business problems, but to ensure prevention of problems and work toward ensuring business excellence that would be recognized by senior management.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at The Clorox Company.

    Interview

    Started with a phone call from a mutual contact. The call had accounting and finance technical questions and then moved on to the behavioral questions. The behavioral questions were not difficult so it won't be hard as long as you nail the technical questions.

    Finance Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Clorox Company.

    Interview

    I was interviewed 3 times for a total of 5 hours. First was the basic phone interview, second was a phone interview with hiring manager and third was a 3 hour face-to-face interview with 4 separate people, including VP of sales. I thought it went well, however I NEVER heard one word back. Not even a "thanks for your time". I thought it was disgraceful, considering I spent nearly 5 hours interviewing, and took half a day of vacation for the interview. I'm fine if I don't receive an offer, however it's only professional to contact someone who has taken their time to interview numerous times.

    Senior Process Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kennesaw, GA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at The Clorox Company (Kennesaw, GA) in July 2019.

    Interview

    This position seems to be continually available. I've seen the opening for years now, and it is quite close to home for me so eventually I accepted recruiter invitation to apply. HR Phone screen, Hiring manager Phone Screen, and lastly a half day on-site in Kennesaw, GA. At each stage they insisted on a number, what was my minimum desired salary. I told them same as current, same as average for the position, and same as the anonymously reported salary from within their company. Each time I was told no problem. During the on-site, I was told I had a unique skill set that they currently lacked and would need with a recent acquisition. They made me an offer the morning after the on-site, for more than 20% under the previously discussed number - not a reduction in title, just salary. I was puzzled by the disconnect, but when I questioned it, I was told to compose a justification for requesting the amount they pay current employees, and that we'd already discussed in the 3 interview steps. After wasting my time playing that game, they still refused to budge. I guess I understand why that position always seems to remain unfilled...

    I have since heard from someone in the position who tells me I dodged a bullet. According to him, they work you very hard, but do not like to pay up to par. Overall a waste of time to apply.
