Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Recall Corporation in April 2008.
Interview Details – One phone interview. All day panel interviews with multiple individuals. My position was an urgent need, so they seemed to expedite the process. Some individuals I met with did not seem excited or passionate about their job or the company. I found out why after I went to work there.
Interview Question – Soembody asked me what my opinion was of the last person I had met with. That was really strange. That had certainly never happened before. It was like they wanted me to say that person didn't seem very bright or something. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – They don't negotiate. They are inflexible in dealing with employees, not just in the interview process.

Senior Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Recall Corporation in June 2009.
Interview Details – phone then in person interviews, panel interviews used for office visit, very warm and friendly recruiting staff, slow between stages of interview process and weak on communication of status throughout,
seemed unsure of what they were looking for in the role, questions were all over the place and not very focused on a single role
The role has been open for a long time and this lack of focus on what they are really looking for is indicative of that gap
Reason for Declining – culture, communication or lack thereof, low energy level of HQ, not impressive leadership team, unrealistic business plan
not sure they can continue to grow in their industry. most of recent growth has been thru acquisition and those opportunities are dried up
Courier Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Recall Corporation in November 2013.
Interview Details – Takes forever to get you on board, HR is a joke.
Interview Question – Usual interview questions, except found it odd that they ask you if you ever been hurt on the job...what are they trying to get at? Answer Question
Reason for Declining – The manager who interviewed me didn't seem honest, was trying to ask you things that shouldn't be asked according to labor laws, looked sneaky too.
Sales Executive Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Recall Corporation in January 2009.
Interview Details – Most everyone at the Vancouver office works hard. I liked the products & solutions. As Recall consolidated their call centers to 1 or 2 locations this caused big layoffs in the region. Initially I was managed by people located in Vancouver. Great relationships and synergy occurred with the regionally focused team. After a couple of years I started reporting to managers from the USA not familiar with the region. The value of what I was doing was not recognized as much. This created a difficult working environment.
Interview Question – Are you familiar with Recall's 4 main document management services? View Answer
Negotiation Details – Started conversation by phone with HR in Ontario. Then met local manager in Vancouver. Went back and forth a couple of times and then agreed on a starting base salary. This was increased after a couple of years based on excellent new sales performance.

Project Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Recall Corporation in August 2010.
Interview Details – I am extremely impressed with Recall's interview process. I interviewed with the initial HR screen, the account manager for the recruiting agency, the HR manager, one of my potential peers, my potential boss, a peer of my potential boss, the operations manager and the CIO. The interview process is very thorough and shows that the organization is concerned about who they hire. The questions that I was asked are pertinent to my job and profession. Each person I met with was personable, and answered my questions to the best of their ability.
