    Research Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pleasanton, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Clorox in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    A recruiter initially contact me about the position. Took about 3 months before the recruiter contact me again for a phone interview. The interviewers was really nice and easy to talk to. Two mangers call at once. They told me to expect a decision in about 2 weeks, but got back to me in 3 days offering an in-person interview. In person interview was a One-on-One and then a Two-on-One. Lasted about 1:30 total. Again they told me to expect a decision in about 4 weeks and that they're looking at other people as well. But recruiter call me that evening and told me that there's an offer.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Clorox in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Average job interview. I went through my project history and strengths/weaknesses with the interview panel While the panel interviews were ok, the communication with HR was quite confusing and even rude. I called/emailed once a week to get an update but was mostly ignored. The worst part was the end, though. I received a voice mail with the good news saying that I had received an offer and to call back. I called back within an hour but it went to voice mail. I received another call back (same day but several hours later) with a voice mail saying that I was rejected. Again, I tried to call in to clarify the situation but was ignored with not even an apology. Luckily, got an offer with a much more professional company within a week.
