    I worked at Fairbanks Scales full-time (More than a year)


    Understand of real world events. Worked with me when I had crisis in my life to allow me to attend to it and still maintain a stable a realisic work/life balance. Patient and understanding leadership.


    Dated manufacturing facility, desperately needing a remodel or a new factory for increased production.

    Advice to Management

    Probably less expensive to develop a new plant in the same/similar area to not interrupt work but allow for a complete revamp of the facilities.

    Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Indianapolis, IN

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Fairbanks Scales (Indianapolis, IN) in February 2017.


    Great phone interviews with human resources, and they were very encouraging. Scheduled meeting with regional manager in Indy. He was late, dressed in sweats, was playing on his phone the entire interview, was rude, and had no interest in the interview. He said he would call those who he interviewed by March 3, and never called or answered calls to check in. Neither did the home office. How unprofessional! They hired no one, and re-posted the job a few days later. Still no one hired. Either the are clueless as to what they want, or the word is out how poorly they are run. My wife is doing a story on this nightmare interview to help others who might waste their time with this process.
