    I worked at Hanson Building Products full-time

    Pros

    The business managers were great to work with on projects.

    Cons

    Horrible leadership skills and communication from IT management. Not able to clearly assign projects and roles. Major communication problems and little knowledge of processes in own environment.

    Advice to Management

    It management needs to study the art of communication and leading people or just go back to being a worker bee and get out of leadership.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hanson Building Products in June 2016.

    Interview

    The video interview has an avatar that is extremely off putting. Getting through it is easy enough though. The assessment day was a good experience. Although I did not know to expect an interview. The presentation to "sell yourself" is an outdated form of interview in my opinion. There's a quick written test as well. It was good to see the group exercise actually being relevant to the role.
