Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Aquent.
Interview Details – It's been a while since I interviewed initially for them. Back then I worked for Sakson & Taylor which was bought out by Aquent some years ago. It started off with an initial email application for a job I was interested in. After that I did a phone interview with the company. It was all very relaxed and everyone seemed nice. Once the phone interview was complete then I had to interview for my actual job with Aquent's client (which is a totally different story). Once I got that job I went into Aquent's office for an orientation and that was pretty much it.
Interview Question – There weren't really any difficult questions as this is a staffing agency. The real interview questions come when you interview with their client. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Since this is a staffing agency the negotiations were short. The client has a certain budget and they try to meet that. They usually offer you a dollar amount and you can accept or decline. I also gave them a target salary that I'd like. Typically Aquent has been pretty good about hitting my targets.
