    Security Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Klamath Falls, OR (US)
    Anonymous Employee in Klamath Falls, OR (US)
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. 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 Questions
    • Specific technical questions about how to fix and IT problem without any insight to their systems or structure.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. 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 Questions
    • 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.
