    IT Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8+ monthsinterviewed at HCSC.

    Interview Details

    Sluggish at best - it took 8 months from initial application to first and second interview, and then it was an immediate hire. I had interviewers who knew how to interview well; the concentration was on people skills, but that was why I was being hired - my IT skills were secondary.

    HCSC has extremely poor training programs so the quality of your interview is most likely going to be determined by what the interviewer already knew - so most questions are likely to be run-of-the-mill as HCSC seems to mostly hire friends, relatives, and professional acquaintances of its employees. Contracting is a great way to get your foot in the door, but it is by far no guarantee.

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at HCSC.

    Interview Details

    Process began with a phone interview, followed by some in-person testing, then an in-person interview. The questions seemed to be rote and similar in both the phone and in-person interview. The company uses behavioral questions and the interviewers asked me very little about myself. There was very little sense of them trying to determine whether I could do the job or if we'd be a good fit for each other.

    Ultimately, I did not get the job, although after the interviews I wasn't certain I would accept an offer anyway. After all the time I took out of my schedule to interview and test, they sent me a form email from HR telling me I didn't get the job. To me, that just confirmed my ill feelings about this company.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing asked was really out of the ordinary, but what was unexpected was how rote the questions were. They were literally read off a long document.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at HCSC.

    Interview Details

    Too many interviews. Very few technical questions. Long waiting time to get feedback or response. Asking same questions just paraphrasing each time. Felt like the interview board already have a candidate selected. Interview Board does not explain the progress in career path.

    Interview Questions
    • Asked make up a difficult scenario and explain how to solve the issue. Asking irrelevant questions to a job seeker in information technology .   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at HCSC.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received e-mail from recruiter with questions to answer. Met with recruiter during job fair and she said an interview within several weeks. 7 months later and no interview. Recruiter won't even reply to my e-mails.

    HCSC is a really unprofessional firm. Their people are disorganized and make empty promises to you. Terrible attitude, terrible company.

    Attorney Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Interview Details

    I exchanged around 50 emails with the recruiter and HR. Conducted an initial 30 minute phone interview with the recruiter, another longer interview with HR, and finally a phone interview with the GC. At the last interview, I was told that I was among the final candidates, and that I was to wait for a schedule for a face-to-face interview. A few weeks later, after several follow-up calls and emails went ignored, I received a form email, with my name misspelled and all lower case, letting me know that I was not selected for the job. I have never dealt with a more unprofessional or worse-organized bunch.
