    Marketing Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Advantage Resourcing in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone only - no physical meeting face to face with agency- only with contracted client. Very easy on boarding- but rule in favor of the company hiring- not so much dual advocacy for the applicants and hand. No resourceing of talent that has been placed from my experience

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Advantage Resourcing in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Started with a phone interview with pretty standard questions, "What did you do when you didn't get along with an employee?" "What was a time you had to deal with an irate customer?" then I was asked to come in for a face-to-face interview with very similar questions but with the Director of the company rather the person I had spoken to before.

    Project Manager V Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Advantage Resourcing in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Initial screening by recruiter with 4 progressive rounds of interviews with the client. Met everyone from hiring manager to peers to 3 levels up. Advantage does not have much of an influence on the hiring process. The decision is made entirely by the client.

    Interview Questions
    • Proving relevance for a role. Most clients are looking for even contractor PMs who come in to be able to hit the ground running and to know how to navigate the organization. If you do not have prior experience working at the client, make sure you demonstrate that byou are quick study with concrete examples in the interview.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Nothing I did not accept. The trick is to stall negotiation until after you have impressed the client and they want you. If you can agree to a range vs a number and get them to setup client interviews, you can definitely get them to settle at the higher end of the range if the client likes you.

    Investment Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Ana, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Ana, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Advantage Resourcing in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    My first step in this process was a bait and switch. They put a more desirable position on the advertisement and then told me, "It's been filled internally but, there is a lower level job that you are qualified for." This is a staffing agency but, they never explain how that system works. The woman I encountered was difficult to reach by phone and took several days to respond to email. I've seen the "bait" job that was "filled internally" advertised on a regular basis since my interview. I would stay clear of this company.
