    Internal Inside Sales - King of Prussia, PA Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Accounting Principals in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was first contacted by a recruiter for Accounting Principals in early November. Several days later I met with her to discuss the possibility of placement with one of their clients. A game plan was developed and I was lead to believe that I would be hearing from her in the very near future. Several weeks passed with no word so I followed up with a phone message.

    I received a phone call from the Area Managing Director who scheduled a personal interview with me to discuss an internal Inside Sales position working for Accounting Principals. I believe the interview went well...about 45 minutes...mostly a review of my work history. She told me that I would hear from her within one week. Twenty-one days passed...no word. I called and left her a phone message and received no response. Eight days later I left another message...still no word.

    I can't understand how this company can legitimately call themselves a recruiting firm and not have the systems and procedures in place to follow up with their resources...very unprofessional

    Based on my experience, I do not recommend using or working for this organization.

    The interview process was nice and smooth. On Day one, I found a job posted online that I applied for. I received a return call from a staffing agent at Accounting Principals by the end of day one and had scheduled an interview with them for Day 2 at which point I completed all paperwork associated with the hiring process. By Day 3 I had an interview scheduled for Day 4 with the outside company for the position I had originally inquired about. At the close of Day 4, I received an offer from the company and started working with them on Day 6!
