    EHS Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Urbana, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Rittal (Urbana, OH) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Fairly standard interview with several rounds of 1-2 on one. No real pressure interview tactics. A lot of "Do you know this?" questions. One of the interviewers considered herself a subject matter expert. Although never truly showed this later. They were looking to replace a person that was currently in the role and trying to be fairly sneaky about it. It turns out he did know what they were up to, which is pretty typical of the Rittal management. Big plans, terrible execution.
