Vice President Finance & Strategy Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at NCH.
Interview Details I took time off of work to fly to Dallas and interview but I did not get the agenda until the last minute. Most of the interviews seemed normal. An HR director asked some questions which I promptly gave answers to and then she kept telling me that there is no right answer like I needed her assurance even though I answered the questions promptly and with confidence. It was odd.
When I first decided to take the interview I told NCH that I would need a quick response or they should not bother with me because I would want my son to start school at the beginning of the year. When the process stalled I pulled out and then it was a hassle to get reimbursed for my miscellaneous expenses.
Interview Question – Why would I want to move to Texas. I has already told them I lived there previously and would welcome an opportunity to return. Answer Question
Graphic Designer Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at NCH in May 2013.
Interview Details Received a telephone interview first, went very well. I interviewed and discussed my experience and qualifications for the job. The immediately scheduled an in-person interview for the next day.
I met with the Creative Director. He was friendly and asked good questions. We spoke at length about the position and he said it appears that I have a good understanding and qualifications for the position. He did say they wanted to interview more people, yet were having a problem getting them in.
I sent the Creative Director a personalized greeting card thanking him for his time, and again stated that I was interested in the position and hoped for the opportunity to work with him & his team. I also followed it up with an email as well. I heard nothing for a week and a half, so I emailed again and also emailed the HR person who did the initial phone interview.
I got a very bizarrely written "generic" response with a "do not reply" email. It said that they were going to hire "more experienced" individuals. Now granted, if there's something I lacked, I can't think of it. In fact, I have been in the business just as long as the Creative Director and worked for as many companies as he has.
I emailed the HR person and the Creative Director again, to get a clarification on what I can do to improve my attractiveness to future employers (a standard business 101 request) and I get no response.
Just found their lack of comments highly unprofessional. I can't help but think its either an age issue or an insecurity issue but needless to say, very weird experience.
Interview Question – No unexpected questions, your standard designer interview. Looked through my portfolio. Answer Question
IT Business Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at NCH in February 2011.
Interview Details To make a quality decision it is necessary to get as much quality data as possible. View your list of questions as the starting point. Each question should generate many probing questions. The purpose of your probing questions is to get more and better information.
Interview Question – What are your passions? Answer Question
Supply Chain Position Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at NCH.
Interview Details I applied for the position and was called back the next day to set up a phone screen interview with the recruiter. After another phone interview with a business manager, I had 5 on-site interviews, which I thought all went very well. Up until then, it was a very quick and efficient process. After the on-site interviews, however, the recruiter would not answer any email inquiries into the status of the position. Five weeks later I finally heard from the company through a standard rejection email. I do wish the recruiter had been more helpful post-interview. Five weeks is a long time to wait when you're not currently employed.
Interview Question – One manager asked questions about the logic used in making decisions - i.e. Why did you choose that university? Why that major? Why that first job? Answer Question
Supply Chain Intern Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at NCH in April 2012.
Interview Details The interview process consisted of a phone interview and a face-to-face interview with the supervisor that is over the internship. The interviewer mostly talked, and he didn't ask many questions. He talked about the position without trying to figure out if I fit the needs of the organization. I felt like the position was pretty basic, but he talked at length about it.
Interview Question – What experience do you have with MRP? Answer Question
Senior Forecasting Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at NCH in August 2012.
Interview Details Efficient hiring process - got a call to schedule an HR interview within a couple of days of applying online. Had a positive HR interview, but did not receive offer because I wasn't from the CPG industry. Seems like the company has a good culture (Danco Inc., subsidiary of NCH), and might have been a great place to work for, had I been the right fit. Gracious HR manager, and very helpful, even took the time to give me feedback once I called after receiving the note that they were going with someone else.
