Desktop Support Technician L2 Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at 21st Century in March 2013.
Interview Details – Wilmington location contracts new hires through a temporary agency. In general, manager (very pleasant) likes to interview at least several applicants face to face before committing to on-boarding for 3 months. Technical interview questions were quite easy and the slant seems to be towards soft skills where many applicants seem to fail. Company strives to hire those applicants they think will stay long term as the compensation is not overly competitive. Interviewer was a very laid back and personable guy! (The recruiting agency on the other hand seemed very aggressive to get the deal done like placing you was tantamount to selling a Malibu mansion with a golden commission!) Best advice is to avoid the company if you are a managerial type, overqualified or if actively interviewing elsewhere seeking higher compensation. I believe in honesty and made both the interviewer and agency aware I still had interviews scheduled over the coming week.
Interview Question – No difficult or unexpected questions at all! Answer Question
