    Plant Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Clean Harbors (New Orleans, LA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied via linkedin. I received a rather quick response time in regards to a prelim phone screen with an individual in HR. That interview went quite well, and i was passed onto the hiring manager for the position. That interview went so well that the manager was ready to "pull the trigger" to fly me out for an onsite visit to the plant.
    But here's where the niceties end.
    Once the hiring manager found out my plans for a previous site visit to Corning, he seemed a bit taken a back which is strange, as top talent is always going to be in demand, and like the applicant pool, "you aint the only one..." but i digress.... At first the following week seemed okay, and i even mentioned the week after that, and he seemed agreeable in trying to set up the schedule.
    So i left a voicemail over the weekend trying to set up some tentative dates etc. He did respond rather quickly, acknowledging my email and stated that "...i will get back to you with some dates, thanks..."
    this NEVER happened. in fact, i received about a week later, a rejection email, and get this, FOR THE WRONG POSITION?
    you have got to be kidding me.
    when i followed up with a phone call to HR to see if an error was made, of course i received no response.
    if this is ANY indication of the company culture, i would advise any professional to stay away, especially when its a career in oil refining. that is a very dangerous chemical process.
    the reviews on glassdoor were truth telling.
