    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at First Alert in August 2019.

    Interview

    Recruiter and hiring manager were very courteous, but there was a lot of miscommunication along the way. The recruiter did not receive my resume with the application, and did not really review it before setting up the screener call. My interview with the hiring manager did not occur when scheduled. The recruiter was very clear that this was a contracted position, but the hiring manager said that there was a potential for long term. The position was to be set up through a third party contractor, but the contractor's name or involvement was not at all specified. The manager did not adequately answer all safety concerns with this vacancy.

    Interview Questions

    • Hiring manager asked only about employment history and if I was aware of the details about the position.   Answer Question
