    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at The HON Company (Muscatine, IA).

    Interview

    The supervisors during two separate interviews either late or extremely late, very rude, disorganized, lacked enthusiasm, waste of time . They seemed like they did not want to be there and had an air of exclusivity, superiority and entitlement which are the worst factors and characteristics in ANY company period. I feel sorry for the company not only because of it's supervisory team but of the fact they are obviously going to miss out on so many great people and doomed to a failing future with representatives and supervisors such as the ones that I've seen

The I had to report out to another management team, many of whom I had already interviewed with. I had to tell them a little about myself and then what i observed on the floor.
