Automation Instructor Interview

Anonymous Employee
Saint Louis, MO

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at GP Strategies in June 2012.

Interview Details – 3 month phone & Skype interview process followed by notification that they are unable to fill any positions for the next 2 months. Pitiful.

Hiring includes a 1 year probationary period during which you receive no benefits and work on a "contract" status.

They failed to come through on every level. Probationary period was longer, hiring date was postponed, travel exceeded their representation, and after jumping through their hoops as a contract laborer, they came back with a salary lower than negotiated.

Interview Question – Nothing difficult. Mostly job related.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I negotiated my wage and probationary period down for a year to 3 months. After the negotiated time-frame, they drug their feet for another 3 to 4 months then failed to come through with the negotiated salary.

Instructional Designer Interview

Instructional Designer
Pottstown, PA

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at GP Strategies.

Interview Details – During the interview process I met with 5 members of the team. It felt almost like an ambush. The team was dressed in jeans and hoodies and requested that I come in in a suit. It was uncomfortable and unprofessional.

Interview Question – They will have you participate in a practicum. Even if you have never worked in training development or instructional design before. They just want to see if you crack under pressure.   Answer Question
