Research Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through other source and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Futurestep.

Interview Details – There were 3 interviews. The inital phone screen, a second LONG interview and then a final interview. The recruiter failed to disclose that the onsite interviews (#2 and #3) would be in excess of 2 1/2 hours. I ended up not returning back to work and using some vacation time because I was at the interview for 3 hours...not including travel time.

Interview Question – All of the questions were standard.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They informed me that the salary offered was non-negotiable for the position for which I interviewed.

Talent Acquisition Specialist Interview

Anonymous Employee
Houston, TX

I interviewed at Futurestep in February 2013.

Interview Details – My overall interview process was extremely informative and well coordinated. I was able to ask as many questions as possible as a means to be clear that I wanted to make the step to the company. The hiring process was seamless! I literally received all of my information (via overnight mail) to ensure that I was expeditiously uploaded into the company profile on day 1 of hire.

Interview Question – Typical interview questions, but still hard to answer, "what are your weaknesses"?   Answer Question

Recruiter Interview

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Futurestep.

Interview Details – Loooong. Except to go through a multi-step interview process in which multiple people will (separately) ask you very similar questions but expect different answers.

Interview Question – The questions were not difficult or unusual. Just repetitive.   Answer Question

Easy Interview

Research Associate I Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Futurestep in September 2013.

Interview Details – I applied through Indeed.com and got called 3 days later to set up an initial phone interview. We decided on that Friday morning at 10 and I waited until 12 before I left the recruiter (who would also be the manager over this particular position) a message asking her politely if we were still on for the interview. She called back half an hour later and apologized, saying she got called into a last minute meeting and forgot to let me know. She asked if she could get her paperwork sorted out from the meeting and call me back at 3 because she had some other interviews scheduled in between. I said absolutely, whatever works best for you.

She called me back at 3:20 and asked me some general questions until about 4. In return I also asked some questions about the position and she wasn't sure of the answer so she said she would talk to her team and let me know 1) the answer and 2) if I move forward to the next round by 5pm. I said that sounds great but at this point had little expectation that she'd call back. She didn't. I left her a message next Tuesday morning asking if she had managed to find out the information. She called me back that Friday morning and said they had already hired someone else based on experience but would keep me in mind for similar positions. She also thought I had talked to her own boss who would make the final hiring decision, but I hadn't, so at this point it was clear there was also some lack of communication in their team.

Interview Question – What was a time when you were the first person on your team to step up and go above and beyond?   Answer Question
