Security Analyst Interview

Security Analyst
Klamath Falls, OR (US)

I applied online and the process took 6 days - interviewed at JELD-WEN.

Interview Details 1. Interview by recruiter via manpower (Jeld-Wen's contracted recruiting partner) 2. Personality test online 3. Interview by supervisor on-site at Jeld-Wen

The interview by the supervisor was poorly executed. The agreed upon call time was missed two times in a row by the supervisor. Once on the phone and interviewing it felt like I was being interviewed for a similarly titled job with a much different description than the position I had applied for. The process felt unorganized and wasteful of an applicants time.

Interview Question – Specific technical questions about how to fix and IT problem without any insight to their systems or structure.   Answer Question

Special Order Door Assembler Interview

Special Order Door Assembler
Chiloquin, OR (US)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at JELD-WEN.

Interview Details There wasn't much of an interview, they don't hire internally they hire through a temp to hire company. They mainly hire people at a bottom level and weed people on the production lines. If you can pee in a cup and stack doors you'll probably get hired on full time.

Interview Question – There weren't a lot of questions when I get called in. When I did get hired on full time though they do make you do a personality test and a basic fractions and math test.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was none since it was through a temp agency.
