Marketing Coordinator Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a staffing agency and interviewed at Ajilon Staffing.
Interview Details – Interviewed with one person who really wanted to get to know me and make sure the position was a right fit for me. After the interview he discussed the job description and wanted to make sure it was a good fit for both sides. Then I was required to fill out paper work.
Interview Question – 3 things you look for in a company View Answer
Very Easy Interview
Staffing Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Ajilon Staffing.
Interview Details – Networking is key when getting into this company, but since they are all recruiters it's not hard to find them and reach out. They are always on the lookout for someone who will be a good fit for the office since they seem to hire and fire frequently, as well as have a high turnover rate due to employee burnout.
Interview Question – The interview was very candid and no formal interview questions were asked. It was conversational, they will ask about your background and what you like to do professionally and personally then will tell you all about how great their company is. They will then bring you back for a 2nd interview where they will put you on the phones to see how well you do in a live environment. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – They offer two base salaries, one for a candidate with a degree and one for a candidate without a degree. There isn't much room for negotiation as the rest of your compensation is based on a commission structure.
Interview Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Ajilon Staffing.
Interview Details – My recruiter asked me to detail all my past experiences and it felt more casual then an interview. The recruiter I met with was very nice and I felt that we could work together well. I was told that there would be a followup email with tests to be completed but I never received that email. I haven't heard back in three weeks. However, it was a good interview experience to practice how I would describe my responsibilities from previous jobs.
Interview Question – Most questions seemed aimed at whether I had supervisory experience. Answer Question

Interview Question – What's your salary expectations? View Answer
Reason for Declining – This is a staffing firm, everything is temp or contract, still waiting for them to call me about an opportunity. I'm currently employed full time, I'm not leaving this job without something great waiting for me.

Very Easy Interview
Business Development Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Ajilon Staffing.
Interview Details – I responded to a "contract recruiter" position, but was transitioned into considering a position in-house with Ajilon as a Business Development Manager. 1st interview was for the "contract" position which seemed to be a bait and switch tactic to bring people in, following my interest I took a personality test, 2nd interview involved an "audition" (detailed below), 2nd personality/skill test (by the end of this test I was frustrated with recalling high school algebra), 3rd interview with VP. I was told several times that they have a very lengthy interview process.
Interview Question – The audition was unexpected but not difficult. I was asked to look up companies in careerbuilder, monster, craigslist, etc. who are hiring, and then to call on those potential clients. This was simply a test to determine if I was capable of making a cold call and getting the name of the correct person. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I did not feel the I was a good match with the hiring manager.
Account Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Ajilon Staffing in July 2010.
Interview Details – I originally called the office to see if they were hiring on the business development side. Their Branch Manager, aware of my affiliation with a competitor, brought me in the next day for an in-person interview.
They had me meet with the team and discuss what I had been doing at my current employer. The interview questions were very straight-forward:
1) What attracted you to work for Ajilon?
2) Why would you be a good fit for the team?
After the in-person interview, they had me take a personality assessment online. This was probably the worst part of the interview process. Very boring, repetitive questions that are supposed to gauge your ability to function in the role that you're applying for.
After that, I was asked to come in for an audition. This took about an hour. They had me on the phones, making cold calls to prospective clients while the Branch Manager listens.
Afterward, I had a brief phone interview with the Regional VP. After that, there was an offer made. The process wasn't terribly painful.
