    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.

    Recruitment Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chipping Sodbury, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hanson Building Products (Chipping Sodbury, England) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Initial interview with two senior members of HR. Online OPQ followed by
    second Interview with HR team members/colleagues of the person who will be taking this role.

    The first interview was fine, easy questions and friendly setting. The interviewers were very professional, polite and listened to my answers. The second interview was completely different. One of the interviewers was very rude and aggressive, cut me off repeatedly (as well as her colleague) and focused all of her questions on one job I did over 10 years ago. It was evident within 30 seconds of her opening her mouth that I was not going to get the job as she had clearly made her mind up (based on the outcome of the OPQ) that I was not the right person. The rest of the interview was merely killing time until she could get me out of the room.

    This was one job I was glad not to have got as I would not have wanted to work in a team where this behaviour at interview was considered acceptable.
