Interview Details

I applied for a "Recruiter" position, posted on Denver's Craigslist board. Phone interview came immediately (same day), and a 2:1 interview was immediately scheduled for the following day - where the President of Enscicon would join the interview. Very prompt, yet very suspect - particularly by today's standards & abundance of applicants for each position.
Typical, generic interview - conducted by a relatively inexperienced and young (mildly attractive) "HR Manager." HR Manager clearly had little experience, and ZERO experience outside of Enscicon. 2:1 interview became 1:1 interview -- as the President of Enscicon never joined the interview. My first impression was that the HR Manager was one of the few "token female employees." My lasting impression, was that the HR Manager's sole purpose is to constantly conduct interviews, to justify her existence within the company. 1:1 interview lasted over an hour - and there was no sign of her interest in hiring me, nor potentially inviting me to a 2nd interview. It was evident, within the first 10 minutes, that I was merely there for the HR Manager to "have something scheduled for the day."
Office culture appeared to be very cold-hearted & quiet. There were Recruiters strolling in late, and some had clearly been there since 6-7:00a.m. The job is, apparently, a 60+hour/week work week, and they claim there is a "significant learning curve" associated with becoming a Recruiter in their company.
If offered a position, I would probably have turned it down - due to not enjoying 60 hour work weeks, or the culture/vibe which was observed in the office. Further, it is clear that they hire "token personnel," and I would be suspect of my potential advancement within the company.
Since my interview process with Enscicon, I have found that they are a continuous "Craigslist-Job Board" company, and would NOT recommend anyone wasting their time with the Enscicon interview process - unless, of course, you relish in working from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
