I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Compass Group USA (Charlotte, NC).
The interview process is very drawn out. I first interviewed with a hiring manager and was told that if invited to the next round, I would need to prepare a case study. The case study was very involved and took roughly 7-8 hours to prepare, and was presented to the hiring manager, her supervisor, and those who the position would be working with. Once I arrived, I could see from the interview packets scattered across the table that roughly 8-10 people had been interviewed that day. I understand wanting to get the best candidate, but come on. It was a situational based (SMART) interview in the second round and I was told I would hear within a week. After not hearing anything after a week and a half, I followed up and was told I was not selected.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Compass Group USA (Charlotte, NC).
I had a very generic 20-minute phone interview with HR at which time I was told that there would be a call back with further information as to a face-to-face interview. I received that call back and was asked if I was willing to sit in on a group interview with several Sr. staff since they would be in my area. I agreed, and was given the opportunity to interview with 4 members of the Sr. staff. It was very personable, and relaxed.
- There really wasn't one that stood out as difficult as I already knew one of the panel members and I had done work for them before. Answer Question

Great Recruiter I spoke with the Skills test was 6 parts made up of 182 yes no, math (hard), word associations. Then two day prior to the interview they give you a topic and you have to do a presentation to panel group. In the panel inteview there are behavioral questons asked. One was what you think of Diversity, a lot of give examples of different sinerios. It lasted about an hour.
Also, the skill test they send you via email just copy the question and put it in your google tool bar the answer will come up. Every one of the math problems, word association, and other part of the test you can to this for.
Flew in for the interview to Char. got to the hotel and I had to pay for it myself. Had to drive 2 hour to another airport because of cost to fly down the Char.
Asked 4 times for an expense and they keep telling me they would send it out. This is the most unprofessional company I have ever had to deal with the an expense report. I am unemployed and I could have used the $150.00 for other things. Why a company of this size feels the need to cheat a person is beyond me.
I would not have worked for them even if they had offered me the job.

Panel interview for contract position. Took place in one of the contract cafeteria. Employees of at cafeteria were friendly and helpful - especially since I was thoroughly confused with what was going on. I got an interview with each person separately and then with the whole panel together.
It was terrible - mostly due to my naivety. I was low balled.
