I have been working at James Hardie full-time (Less than a year)
I had a very positive experience in the recruiting and hiring processes. Although it was a rigorous and time consuming vetting, I think it was appropriate on both sides to ensure the right fit. There were open lines of communication with both HR and the hiring staff throughout.
I learned about the opportunity through a recruiter contacting me on LinkedIn. I wasn't actively looking at the time. At times, it was frustrating working "through" the recruiter. Since I've started, the orientation and onboarding processes have been well developed and thorough.
I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at James Hardie (Chicago, IL).
I applied through campus OCR. First interview was a phone/video interview. Second onsite interview was a case presentation to management and HR folks. Case was provided 5 days before the interview and had to make a presentation. Criteria for selection was not very clear, seemed like some interviewers knew the people who work there and may have been given some preference. I would suggest network before interview. Case presentation was simple and straight forward so I guess they looked at relations with the recruiters before interviews.
