    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took 3 months - interviewed at A-dec.

    Interview Details

    A headhunter contacted me, asked if I was interested, then submitted my resume. After that, I worked directly with the recruiter:
    1. Phone screen with recruiter
    2. On site with hiring manager and one of her colleagues
    3. Second on site with hiring manager, then a consultant, then two managers from the business that I'd be working on a project with
    4. Third on site to give 20-minute training to group of employees from HR, including hiring manager and VP
    The entire process from application to offer took 3 months.

    Interview Questions

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at A-dec in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    We started with an hour long phone interview, followed by a panel interview with (4) seperate teams, including a facility tour. The final interview was a personal interview over lunch, lasting 2 hours. All interviews were great, providing great feedback and volunteering innovative ideas for the net new position. I was offered and accepted the position, following the third interview. A written offer letter, providing commitment of salary, position, manager, start date, etc. My start date was delayed because I was pregnant and planning a 6 week maternity leave. Everyone was supportive and on board with this delay, until my baby was born early and I offered to start a couple weeks early. I was called the next day and told that they were pulling the job from me, with absolutely no explanation. I tried to reach out to the immediate supervisor, as well as the background reference firm, and noone was allowed to provide me a reason as to the change. I assume it was a budget cut, as this was a net new position for their company, but I could not say for certain. All I did hear was that my final employment screening, as drug screening and feedback from references had nothing to do with this decision.
    This was one of the most unproffesional business encounters that I had ever experienced! That a written offer letter and all subsequent arrangements were made, then to pull the position, with no explanation. Unheard of!

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Newberg, OR
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at A-dec in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    The managers in this company were some of the finest people I ever met. They were clearly searching for compatibility and a team oriented person. I did 1/2 day interviews twice, about a month apart each time. The interviews were friendly and I actually enjoyed doing them. If you come across as knowledgeable in your field you will do fine.

    Reasons for Declining

    I already had taken a job. Due to the long process at A-dec I didn't think that they were serious about me even though I called and let them know that I had another offer. Could they please speed up their decision making process? Unfortunately, they were so process bound that they could not deviate and so I was left with no option.
