    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at WD-40 Company (San Diego, CA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Very slow, but good people.

    HR phone screen, several weeks later hiring manager phone interview. HR was never able to determine next steps or get feedback from the manager.

    2 weeks after nothing from HR I get a package, hand written note and product samples. Not moving forward with the process but a very classy move, hopefully it means they're a good company.

    Very standard questions, only one that was unique was "Example of a time you were in a situation where someone was doing something unethical".

    Interview Questions

    • Example of a time you were in a situation where someone was doing something unethical.   Answer Question

    Customer Service Representative Sydney Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Epping, New South Wales (Australia)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at WD-40 Company (Epping, New South Wales (Australia)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through Linked in on a Monday, had a call and phone interview, about 20 mins, from a recruitment agency two days later. The next week I spoke again to the recruitment agency on the Tuesday, secured an interview with the company for the next day. -That was 90 mins and after the first hour I met three of the people that would be working with the person who eventually accepted the role. And I received feedback the next day. All up it was a quick process for me, less than two weeks, but the interview was very long and the questions weren't great.
    Also, weirdly, they kept saying repeatedly in the interview and also from what they promote on their company websites, that they wanted to hire someone that fit really well with their company and that they would hire more based on that than experience necessarily. However that was not the case in practice as the feedback I received was that they liked me, but they chose to go with someone with more exact experience, as they didn't want to wait for me to learn the software they use.
