I applied online. The process took 4 days – interviewed at PeopleScout (Chicago, IL) in August 2013.
The thing is this. I had passed all of the interview process. Did very will. Then they hit you with the "training class" All of it was packed into 4 days. They expect you to know everything. They REQUIRE you to pass the test with an 80 %. If you don't pass the test you have wasted your time. You are not eligible to apply for six months. Please don't get me all excited to have a position and make me go through everything. I studied for that test very hard. When I got to the test I froze and It was like I lost everything. They truly don't care if you get the position. I felt like a number. The instructors were nice. But in reality you are just another number and they are filling these positions with the numbers needed. I have honestly never felt more unintelligent in my life. The cherry on the cake is when they tell you "See You Tomarrow" after you finish the test. Really just means, we may or may not have a position for you. Again if you want this job. You can study all you want. But there are so many curveballs to this job. I really did study hard and I am generally good at these things. I failed because I'm not as smart as I thought. But yet I could handle all of the phone practice with ease. I once again am back at square one. Please just try your best. You have to have an 80 percent to pass.

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at PeopleScout (Chicago, IL) in April 2011.
I applied for the recruiter position thinking online. About 2 weeks later I had a follow up phone interview followed by an in person interview. Parking was HORRIBLE when I arrived for my interview, there were over 35 ppl in this interview (very little room). The interview consisted of us reading scripts in front of everyone as well as us telling everyone about ourselves (education, past work experience). It was a complete waste of time!!! The position is NOT a recruiter position, it is a telemarketing position pretty much. You are on the phone the entire time screening people like yourself on the phone by reading a script. They don't tell you that they only start you off at $8.75 per hour for the first 90 days which is unacceptable especially if you have a B.A or even a Masters which a lot of people had. You're treated more like a number than an individual. Though this job offers great flexibility, $8.75 is a low blow for those who have years of work experience and the education to back it. They really stress call center experience and if you do not have it, more than likely you won't get asked back like myself. Misleading Good Luck

I applied online. The process took 4 days – interviewed at PeopleScout (Chicago, IL) in April 2010.
First things first, the first contact will be made online ( filing out the application) then you receive a "job" number with instructions to call the 800 number within the predetermined tine frame ( within 24-48 hours) the first phone interview you will be asked general question but be prepared to read something for the "recruiter". The next step will be another phone interview to ask about your experiences and how you handle irate clients. The next step is the "open house" a group invitation where you fill out an pplication and read various scripts enthusiatcally. Next step is inerviewing with the manger.... Be prepared to bring your negoation skills ( this will be your salary after all) Know your skills weakness and strengths) Good Luck to you all
