Human Resources Representative Interview

Human Resources Representative
Southfield, MI

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Federal-Mogul.

Interview Details – 3 Hour interview. Met with 6 different people. Interviewed with 2 HR persons at one portion of the interview, asked strange questions, got the impression I was only there to fill their interview quota and that the job was really already going elsewhere. I felt very uncomfortable with the 2 HR people, felt dismissed before they even started. One of the two HR people asked very aggressive questions it made me very uncomfortable. Very unprofessional.

Interview Question – If someone showed up in my office crying what would I do?... I asked for clarification and more details, but did not receive much of a response. I was pressured to answer and reluctantly did so.   Answer Question
