    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Collaborative Solutions (Pleasanton, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Great interview process! I had a phone screen with the recruiting manager and then went in for an in person interview the next week. Questions asked were very relevant to the position and some behavioral questions were asked as well. Very friendly interviewers - I met with three different people. Unfortunately I was not offered the position but the communication was very timely and overall a great interview experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Collaborative Solutions in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of 1) phone interview with an HR representative; 2) phone interview with a Technical Analyst in my prospective team; and 3) Skype interview with a senior Consultant in my prospective team. This was one of the best interview experience I've had, for the HR person quickly responded to any questions I had, and by speaking with the people whose team I might be joining, I was able to gain a firm grasp of the culture and the kind of tasks I will be handling. I'm highly satisfied with the job offer, and believe that the company is genuinely interested in my professional development. I can't wait to start working here!

    Standard Interview Process. Had a few minor issues with the recruiter but overall pretty good and very fast follow-up. I interviewed with the recruiter, another HCM consultant, manager and then director. They also checked 3 references. I was told I had excellent feedback from everyone but ended up not receiving an offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Collaborative Solutions (Reston, VA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    This was my best interview experience as I was job searching! The process was very straight forward and I was always able to get in touch with my recruiter.The communication was open and the questions I was asked were relevant to what I would be doing in the position. During my second interview I was supposed to have a phone call with a team member that ended up having a family matter they had to step away for at the last minute so the President & COO of the company jumped on the phone with me, while he was traveling, to conduct my second interview. How cool! I felt really valued and it was great to see that Collaborative really cares about their candidates and respects their time. Overall, my recruiter did an amazing job communicating with me on where I was in the process and each interview felt like a conversation where they were getting to know me and my skills vs. question after question feeling like I was being quizzed. Great interview experience!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Collaborative Solutions in April 2015.

    Interview

    Very fast and straight-forward interview process; I was contacted the day after applying and had four interviews over the course of a few weeks. I had a phone screen with a recruiter first, then had Skype interviews with members of the marketing team, and ended with an interview with the VP of Marketing. The recruiter was so friendly and informative, and especially quick to respond. Nothing out of the ordinary in terms of questions, just be yourself! Everyone was extremely inviting and it seemed to be a great culture fit along with awesome benefits, so my decision to accept was easy.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Collaborative Solutions in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was straightforward, I had about 4 phone/skype interviews. They didn't ask any questions out of the ordinary. Everyone I spoke to gave insight into the company and details as to what they expected of the role. They also spoke highly of their culture and executive team. They definitely wanted to find the right fit for both the organization and myself. The recruiter I worked with was amazing! She was respectful and always got back to me in a reasonable amount of time.

    Interview

    The interview process was very pleasant and concise. It began with an online application followed by an initial phone screen which was very basic and straightforward. Following the phone screen, there were two more phone interviews with two different levels of management. After the second phone interview, the initial recruiter reached back out to me with on offer.

    Engagement Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Collaborative Solutions in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for an engagement manager role. The HR recruiter called and asked if I would be interested in a change management consultant role. I was really looking for a manager role but I agreed to the interview. It went pretty well, the HR rep knew her stuff as she asked some very targeted questions. When we discussed salary is where things got kinda awkward. As we were pretty far apart. I asked about a manager role in CM area and she told me that they don't hire managers from the outside. I would have take a consultant role and prove myself. That sounded crazy to me as I have over 10 years of CM experience. Anyway, she said she would present me to the hiring mgr. A few days later I got an email saying thanks but no thanks. I was fine with that because it didn't feel like a good for me anyway.

    Workday HCM Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Collaborative Solutions.

    Interview

    In person interview was set up, and went well. Most questions were behavioral such as: what experience have you had leading a team, what about your past would benefit you in a consulting career, how would your major (mine is Mathematics) apply to the field, etc. The interview seemed to go well, but there was no correspondence afterwards. After weeks of waiting and sending a couple follow-up emails, there was not any note as to whether my process had been forgotten, whether I had not been selected to continue, or any notice that my emails had been received. Genuinely seemed like great people in person, but there may simply be a lack of communication within the company, at least was my experience.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Collaborative Solutions in February 2015.

    Interview

    Phone screening interview request within one week of application submittal and received a cancellation email 7 minutes the interview. Once the interview was finally rescheduled, the recruiter said I would be a better fit for another position but I would have to reapply since she wasn't the recruiter for it. Why would an applicant have to start the process over if the recruiter has found the perfect person for another position outside of what they applied to? Also, I had to contact them regarding the status of my application though they said I would here something by a specific date. Very unprofessional experience.
