Associate Health and Wellness Service Delivery Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Saint Petersburg, FL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Ceridian in April 2013.

Interview Details – I was contacted for a pre-screening interview as a result of an employee referral. The interviewer was professional and passed my information to the hiring manager. It has been a week, and I have not been contacted for an in-person interview.

Interview Question – There were not difficult or unexpected questions in this pre-screen.   Answer Question

Account Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Saint Petersburg, FL

I applied online and interviewed at Ceridian.

Interview Details – The in-house recruiter for this position lacks adequate interviewing skills. You would meet with the senior management team in a 2nd interview. This team tends to ask behavioral questions -- Tell me about a time where you had to deal with an unhappy client and how you solved the situation. The same question will be asked several different ways throughout the interview.

Interview Question – Be advised the behavioral questions become redundant throughout the interview process.   Answer Question

Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst
Atlanta, GA

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Ceridian in September 2008.

Interview Details – Varies with HR and Manager. There is no specific process for contractors, new hires or consultants. Be prepared for anything. Patience will probably be the most notable skill that will be used.

Interview Question – Benefits and opportunity for advancement might be the most awkware question from both sides.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – What were you able to negotiate? What advice would you give others considering an offer?

Easy Interview

Sales Interview

Sales
Minneapolis, MN

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Ceridian in June 2012.

Interview Details – Three phone screens, intelligence/logic and personality type tests online, in person interview and presentation. Think the tests were important, never got to know results. Read the directions as they are timed. Prep for interview and ask HR rep for tips. I think process is flexible in some ways but not in others. Background check was extensive and took ages. Don't quit your current role until you have it all in writing as they pushed back my start date due to background check delays.

Interview Question – Nothing surprising or tricky, but this will depend on your hiring manager I suspect.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not much negotiation possible. I scored a few extra bennies. Asked for more salary and was turned down flat. Total package was decent but their benefits aren't great.

Customer Service Representative Interview

Customer Service Representative
Blue Bell, PA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Ceridian in July 2010.

Interview Details – I was called by a recruiter after I applied online and asked questions about my past work experience, what my career plans were at the time, and was later contacted to come in for a 1:1 interview. I met with the manager of the customer service department for a 1:1 interview and was asked about my past work experience, given further information about the role, asked about my future career plans and was able to ask questions in return. I was told that I would hear back in 2 weeks if I received the job and did hear back within 2 weeks by the initial recruiter that first contacted me.

The office in Blue Bell was set up with rows of cubicles and I observed employees on the phones taking calls. The office was clean and employees walking around greeted me and seemed to be nice.
