    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at James Hardie (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process took 3 weeks. First a phone interview then two rounds of interviews. The first was with the team members and the second interview was with the TA manager. However, they included two IQ tests. I agree with another reviewer who said what does IQ testing have to do with HR. That method of testing is very old school and really can't measure a person's success on the job. According to the job description my skills matched and the recruiter even said if it was up to her she would hire me. Overall looking the interview reviews and company reviews i can now understand that i didn't match their culture. The caliper personality test will indicate if you are a culture fit. It was a really bummer because I loved the team. I rated the interview difficult because it was hard to tell about the culture fit.
