Recruiting Consultant Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Accolo in April 2012.
Interview Details – I applied on-line for the position. I was then contacted by a Hiring Consultant Manager and her assistant by email and phone. Both seemed very nice. I had my phone interview with the Hiring Consultant Manager. the next day. She (the interviewer) seemed lukewarm during the interview (not the usual upbeat type most of us in Talent Acquisition are!) and the questions were clearly from a script. The script is routine but nothing was asked beyond that. She answered all my questions and then said she'd get back to me within the next week. I wrote my thank you note within 24 hours to which she responded immediately (unusual) and again stated she would be in touch soon. I didn't hear anything so followed up again. I never heard another word from her or even received an ATS generated rejection letter. Very unprofessional.
Interview Question – Nothing was asked that was unexpected or difficult. Answer Question

Recruiting Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Accolo in July 2009.
Interview Details – I was only involved in the online interview process with Accolo. I loved what the company talked about on it's website regarding the "Candidate Bill of Rights" which consistently emphasizes "communication" and "follow up". After applying for a position however, for which I was indeed qualified for, I never heard a thing one way or another. Upon logging back in to the site and to my profile, I finally saw the statement "other candidates better fit". Competition is fierce right now and I understand that part. But if you're going to make claims on your website about follow up and communication, then do it. In this job market, people will realize quickly that while the company makes great claims about consideration and follow up, it does not deliver.
Interview Question – The online interview simply covered basics such as experience and salary. Answer Question
