    Sales Operations Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Brightstar.

    Interview Details

    Typical process, Phone, Skye, P2P. For a global company, I would expect their HR department to be more seasoned. They found an issue with my application, and when I was able to send supporting data that corrected the issue, they did not acknowledge it, nor did they even try to discuss with me the supporting documentation. One HR person actually called me a Liar! This was after I received an offer for employment. Totally unprofessional, and sad for a any company. I would be very cautious before looking at a position at Brightstar.

    Interview Questions
    • Most were very easy. One stand out "How do you make friends?"   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The HR department REFUSED to discuss a perceived error on my application, after I submitted supporting documentation showing otherwise.

    Director Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Brightstar.

    Interview Details

    I was pretty much disappointed. It took long time to have an interview scheduled. Phone interview was OK, face-face interview instead ended up to a very general interview instead of going deeper in the job specifications. After spending quite some time in this process, no feedback was given by the company, which for a senior (Director) level job is not that fair, even if you did not like the candidate. HR must be able to say why your profile did not fit, especially when recruiting for senior roles.

    Senior Manager, Transportation Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Libertyville, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Libertyville, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Brightstar in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    So I get a call from a Brightstar recruiter who has an open position to fill. He said he found my resume on CareerBuilder and wanted to know if I was interested in talking to him about an open position he thought would be a good fit. Knowing that Brightstar is only five miles from where I live and that nothing ventured, nothing gained, I said of course I'll talk to you. The recruiter goes over the basics of the job very briefly and tells me he'll send me an email with files on the job description, application, the hiring process and the company. He was very good throughout the entire process. So I went home and read the job description and it was not well written at all. The job appeared to be rather tactical, and not strategic. I wasn’t interested in what I read but agreed to interview for the position anyhow. I met with a very lovely woman from Brightstar HR who spent about 30 minutes with me asking me a few basic clarifying questions about my work history. There was also an application that I filled out in advance of the interview. Then came my interview with the hiring manager, the Director of Supply Chain. As a prelude, I will tell you that I looked up this person on LinkedIn prior to the interview and to my dismay, was surprised to find out that this person averaged a new job about every two years over the previous 15 years. Not promotions within the same company, new jobs at different employers, with widely varying job titles from one job to the next. This concerned me a great deal. Struck me as a job hopper. Anyhow, I meet the hiring manager and get a bad vibe. Maybe I had already made up my mind I was not going to like this person. But then again, maybe not because five minutes into the job interview, the hiring manager jumped up and ran outside and down the sidewalk. No lie! Apparently the hiring manager saw someone out the window that they just had to talk to. I’m thinking WTF! Five minutes later the interview resumes, but I’m still thinking, WTF. The hiring manager’s first question was about something the recruiter told me did not apply to this job. Now I’m thinking the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing. As I’m answering the question, the hiring manager starts to read Facebook. Again, still, I’m thinking WTF. The second question of a two question interview was semi-retarded. As I’m answering, the hiring manager gets a text message from their boss and then she texts him back! Can you believe this! As much as I wish it hadn’t happened, it did! I thought I was on candid camera. I then met with three other direct reports to the Director of Supply Chain. Nice guys. Not an interview process at all but more of a, hey, if I (Director of Supply Chain) hire this guy, will you underlings be ok with it type of process. One last thing, everyone asked me pretty much the same question, Why are you looking for a new job. I had to tell everyone that I wasn't looking for a new job, that Brightstar recruited me. I called the recruiter back the next day and politely said, WTF. He was very apologetic.
