    I worked at Fletcher Building full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    DECRA brand
    Local Decra managers and ceo
    Manufacturing excellence team
    Sales people

    Cons

    The roof corporate group especially the human resource department.
    They just moved to one of the most expensive areas in one of the most expensive buildings.

    Advice to Management

    The US leaders of DECRA are the ones who instruct us, train us and inspire us. We hate these Irvine guys and our leaders don't need them. I hear rumors of our head of sales and our president getting ready to leave. The president helped me find a job as soon as he heard I needed to move for my wife's job. He's a good guy. He's paid for people's college from his own bank account and treats us all with the same respect. So does sales Vice President and most of the OPEx group.
    Patricia in hr is nice and helpful.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Fletcher Building (Auckland (New Zealand)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Thorough hiring process, with full references, psychometric testing, and a two stage interview process with various key stakeholders. Guidance was given around how best to prepare and the hiring managers were involved throughout.

  • Here are the most influential people in the world right now, accordingly to Time magazine. They have been split in to 5 categories: Titans, Pioneers, Artists, Leaders, and Icons. What are your thoughts on the 'chosen' 100? Is there a distinction between power and influence?

    At Fletcher Building we have our own Titans, Pioneers, Artists (of design and product development!), Leaders, and Icons - and you can hear from some of them here: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vI6u6

    Time 100: Here are the 100 most influential people in the world

    Beyonce was top of the titans last year but she has been knocked off the top spot by Kanye West. In a short bio, written by engineer and entrepreneur Elon Musk, it explains how Kanye the 'pop culture juggernaut' is not afraid of believing in himself, shunning 'false modesty'.
