    Lean Leader Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Swagelok (Solon, OH) in August 2017.

    Interview

    A Swagelok representative contacted me via LinkedIn to discuss an opportunity that they believed my background was tailor suited for. After a quick phone screening with the recruiter, and filling out an application online, I was brought onsite for an interview within 3 weeks. The interview consisted of a Watterson Test and interviews with the site director and corporate support. Interview questions were conversational in nature, and did not appear to come from prefabricated behavioral based screenings.

    The structure of the interviews was fairly standard, but the coordination of the process was poorly executed. Many little issues presented themselves through the process, such as the recruiter consistently failing to spell check emails and the automated application system getting stuck in a loop as I tried to submit (bringing me back to the home screen). The recruiter also changed the date and time for the interview no less than 3 times (including not notifying me of a change until less than 24 hours prior).

    Upon arriving, there was no point of contact for the interview, and no way to contact anyone at the site. I ended up calling the recruiter who apologized for not having anyone there to greet me. After a fairly engaged conversation during the segment with the final interviewer, he told me I could show myself out, and that the recruiter would get in contact with me. Finally, the recruiter ghosted me, ignoring emails and phone calls after promising feedback within the day.

    Overall, professionalism and courtesy were lacking, even if they knew they didn't want to offer me the role. The role ultimately was reposted, and I received an automated email informing me that I was not selected, shortly after the recruiter finally returned communication nearly 3 weeks after the interview.
