    Part Time Human Resources Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Fortress Investment Group in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was offered Nespresso and watched like a lab rat for over 45 minutes. The person who was supposed to interview me never arrived. Apparently she was in a meeting.

    A succession of three women, starting with a college intern, each "checked in" on me, presumably stalling until the interviewer would be free. They did not really ask me questions in a typical interview format, but were ultimately responsible for judging my behavior.

    Three people from Fortress started following my Twitter account a week after the interview, although their decision to not move forward with me had already been made. Go figure.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Fortress Investment Group in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    I met with a total of 9 ppl in 3 rounds of interviews. Just be prepared to back up your resume and answer a few technical (not very difficult) questions based on your experience listed on your resume. Research the company thoroughly beforehand and ask good questions. Fortress works its employees hard, be expected to be on your blackberry all the time and be ready to work late nights and weekends whenever needed.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions are pretty standard interview questions, i.e. know your resume, why you a good fit for the company, why do you want to work for the company, etc.   Answer Question
