    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Paramus, NJ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at United Water (New Jersey) (Paramus, NJ).

    Interview

    You first go through a phone screening then meet with multiple people in person. When I reached the final round, there was ambiguity as to what my role would be at the company. Then they said the job would require 25% travel when there was no mention of it during the process. When I expressed my concern about it they took back their word and said they would only make it 10% travel. They added that they would decide on my responsibilities on the first day I started. If a company is lying about the job responsibilities already then I don't see it as a good place to work.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at United Water (New Jersey) (Harrington Park, NJ) in April 2013.

    Interview

    I applied to a job via the company's website. A week later I received an email from a human resources and they wanted to conduct an initial phone interview to discuss my qualifications and level of interest in this role. During the phone conversation, the human resource professional asked me what I was looking to make in terms of salary.

    Following the phone interview, I was told they would like to arrange for me to come in for a 1:1 interview with the Hiring Manager. During the interview, the Hiring Manager asked me to walk him through my resume from my college to present. Overall, the Hiring Manager asked general questions. I sent a thank you letter within 24 hours of of the interview to show my interest in the position.

    I did not hear anything for 2 weeks, so I called the Hiring Manager to follow up if the position was still available and if so, was I still under consideration. After my follow up phone call, I was invited back to meet with the Hiring Manager's boss. Within a few days after the second 1:1 interview I received a verbal offer from human resources.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at United Water (New Jersey) in June 2010.

    Interview

    I was first contacted by telephone by an intern to ask me some basic questions (degree status, interview availability, etc). I was then contacted by a recruiter to schedule my interview. The interview was pretty laid back. We discussed my previous experience and what I felt were my strongest skills.
