    IT Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Steelcase.

    Interview

    Got contacted after submitting my resume. There is two rounds of interviews but they don’t ask technical questions. Entirely behavioral based. Average interview.. The recruiter seems a little aloof and I didn’t really click with him so the result is kind of expected.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Steelcase in February 2020.

    Interview

    It was very thoughtful, pointed and professional. The first round was mainly behavioral questions and was followed up by a second interview before an offer was made. The whole process moved along rather quickly.

    Second Shift Zone Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Grand Rapids, MI (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Steelcase (Grand Rapids, MI (US)) in December 2019.

    Interview

    began ok, then went horribly; HR canceled first interview evening before it was scheduled by sending email after hours (no phone call). Then rescheduled, but hiring manager had wrong time for the interview and declined to interview as he had wrong time and I was early. He never came to door and opened it. As you stand outside a locked door in the wind, you are to call a hiring manager on your cell who tells you you're late and there wont be an interview but in fact you are early. Even though you drove 2 hours for the interview the week of Christmas, it matters not. His erroneous calendar trumps your organizational skills and punctuality. Interview declined. All this after a personality assessment and a phone screen. Stay clear of this if your time means something to you.

    First of all, thank you for the feedback. I am very disappointed to learn that you had such a negative experience. Our goal is to make these processes as smooth and as candidate friendly as possible. In this case, it appears that we fell short of that goal. Learning from feedback like this is one of the best ways for us to improve so we really appreciate you taking the time.
