    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Exide Technologies.

    Interview

    One of the most unorganized interview experiences I have had. Had a conversation with an HR Manager and she asked if I would be interested in speaking with the hiring manager. I told her I would be interested and she said she would get back to me with times for a phone conversation. The following day I got a phone call from her saying the interview has to be rescheduled the only thing was I was never informed that an interview had been scheduled. On the day of the interview the hiring manager called over 30 minutes late for our conversation. We spoke for about 45 minutes and he said he would be flying out within the next week or so and he would call me with his travel info and we would set up a time to meet. A week went by and I never heard anything so I emailed my HR contact and she said he would probably be out the following week. Another week went by another email sent to HR she said the interview was handed off to another individual and not sure when he would be coming out. Couple more weeks went by and the interview yet again got handed off to another person. HR called me and we set up a time and date for the interview. Got an email confirmation and the email had a different meeting time that what was discussed on the phone. Emailed her back and she got the meeting times mixed up. Went to the interview and the facility is in a newer area and looks nice on the outside but it looks pretty run down on the inside. Pretty standard interview lots of "normal" interview questions. Interviewer mentioned at her location she has to buy her employees breakfast to get them to come in on Saturdays but one them she has to give money for beer because he doesn't want the breakfast. It was somewhat odd hearing that. Week or so after the interview I emailed the HR contact and never got a response back and from what I have read that is how they operate.
