    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Monster Worldwide.

    Interview Details

    Applied through my school's career website and received a phone call from Monster the day after, to schedule a phone interview. A week later, she calls me the day before my scheduled interview saying they already filled the position and they're canceling my interview.

    EXTREMELY unprofessional and a rather underdeveloped style of recruiting. I was astonished

    Product Management Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Weston, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Weston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Monster Worldwide in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had applied through the company site, and followed it up with their technical recruiter via email. Got a call from them and I had to speak a bit about myself. They called me directly for an interview at their office premises in MA. They moved into the Weston office pretty recently and it seemed to be a really nice place to work. There were two other candidates on the same day. Apparently, there were 8 candidates who were shortlisted and only 1 or 2 were going to make the cut. We met with our tech recruiter and we had small tour of the place and then a brief discussion about Monster, the work culture, the company's plans for the future, etc.

    We were then met by people from the product team. There were 6 people in total and they were divided into three pairs. So, one pair for each candidate and we had to rotate after every 15 minutes. They spoke to me in detail about my experience and what I aspired to do by being a PM Intern. I was also asked to propose solutions or approaches towards a solution for certain specific issues related to Monster and job search sites in general. We also spoke at length about the company. Monster is trying to innovate and come up with new products that would take the company forwards. Also, I was told that there was something very big coming up for the summer and that it would be a very challenging and amazing internship if at all we made. It all looked pretty promising.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Monster Worldwide in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    1. Met the Recruiter at my school career fair.
    2. Got an email from the recruiter to setup an initial phone screening with the hiring manager. Very professional in setting up date and time.
    3. The phone screening went really well.
    4. Heard back from the recruiter that I was selected for the final round of in-person interviews, asking for availability. They have a really detailed process.
    5. I sent my availability but did not hear back for a few days.
    On following up again, I understood that they had held off the in-person interviewing.

    Very weird!

    Staff Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Milwaukee, WI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Monster Worldwide in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was called by a recruiter for a phone interview. She asked for me to go through my job history, knowledge of computer programs, strengths, weaknesses. My main point is that she said that she would contact me within three days of the interview, but never did. It is disappointing to receive a rejection letter but when a promise is broken, it is even more disappointing. Obviously she may contact me later but already I feel animosity towards the company.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Monster Worldwide in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed for a project management position. Initial phone call, then asked to meet in Maynard. Met with 5 people, including manager and manager's manager and some of the team. Was told they would be making a decision very quickly and would be back in touch. That was almost 3 weeks ago, and nothing. Nada. Zilch. Follow-up notes have been ignored. And these folks are in the recruitment business?

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Maynard, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Maynard, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Monster Worldwide in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had a 1/2 hour phone interview with the hiring manager. He asked me about some of my background as well as some basic technical questions. I was not well prepared and did not do well with the technical questions; as a result the interview did not go well but I learned a very valuable lesson. There are numerous sites with typical interview questions, use them to prepare for your interviews! I did and subsequent interviews have gone much better.
