Desktop Support Interview

Desktop Support
Grapevine, TX

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Buchanan Technologies in February 2014.

Interview Details – When initially getting first phone interview, I was highly impressed with the how professional the Interviewer was. We covered my skill set, Technical questions, education, work history, Salary requirements, and criminal background. I explained it has been over 20 years ago and that shouldnt be a problem due to the light nature of the offense ( non-violent ). I was contacted 2 days after for a second interview over the phone that lasted 45 mins. Same questions same results, I was a good candidate for the position. I then got contacted for a face to face interview where everthing went downward. The Vice president of Field services decided to discourage me with remarks such as: 1. "I'll determine if you are a fit not saying you are but we will see". 2. "yeah, your hitting all the questions right but that doesnt mean your the one". And lastly after almost a hour ask me after the first 2 phone interviews about my croiminal background that was exactly 23 years 10 months old possesion charge (I was 18 now 42 years old). His response after the other 2 interviewers told him was: " Yes your not getting this position. I'm gonna be honest but we do hire with people with a background depending. I believe because he didnt have a face from the first 2 interviews, then found out that the one with the exact skill set and old criminal background is "Black" that was the final deciding factor in him knowing he was not going to hire me.. My thoughts. With that said I would NEVER refer anyone to this company!! That guy needs a class on Sensitivity Training, Managing Workplace Diversity

SharePoint Administrator Developer Interview

SharePoint Administrator Developer

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Buchanan Technologies.

Interview Details – Everything was handled via phone interview..

Negotiation Details – They offered the position at one amount and then when the company I would be performing work for came back and said they wanted me they lowered the amount they (Buchanan) would pay me. Pretty cheesy move and I've heard from one other person that they did the same to them
