    Instructional Designer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Insperity in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Screened by phone and then given tests to measure aptitude and personality. I had two in-person interviews and was asked to provide work samples. Everyone was very kind and welcoming and I felt very comfortable with the interviewers. I am, naturally, pleased they offered me a position, but I would rate the experience as positive either way.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Insperity.

    Interview Details

    I got a phone interview a month or so after applying. It seemed like it went really well and the recruiter seemed really excited to get me into an in-person interview because he thought I would be a great fit. He said to follow up if I hadn't heard by X date. Well, I didn't hear, so I sent a follow up/thank you email. Nothing. I sent one more follow up. NOTHING. I would have been fine with it if he had just sent a reply like "I'm so sorry, they filled the position," or "They have decided to go in another direction," but the complete non-response after such enthusiasm was bizarre and rude.

    Business Performance Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Insperity in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by a recruiter via LinkedIn. Next step was a phone call with the recruiter where we reviewed my background (LinkedIn profile) and she explained the position, compensation, and company. Interviewed in person with the district manager - this was a standard interview. 2nd in person interview was with the regional manager - this was a more informal, conversational interview focusing more on the company culture and whether or not I would be a good fit.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Insperity.

    Interview Details

    Started with a phone interview with internal recruiter. It was more of her selling me on why I should work for Insperity. Next was F2F interview with District and then Regional Sales Manager. Both were surprisingly easy interviews considering that it is a "$200k+" sales job. Next I had to go thru a very detailed background check that took a very long time but no drug test which I thought was very odd.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Insperity.

    Interview Details

    I was called by a recruiter and I went in for a face to face interview with one of the managers. The interview itself was very pleasant and there was nothing difficult about it. Questions regarding personality and situations were asked. I was then told that I would hear by Friday (interview was on Wednesday), whether I got the position or not. I had emailed the interviewer a thank you note. I didn't hear anything for over 3 weeks. Then I get called again for a second interview. Will be meeting later this week.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Insperity.

    Interview Details

    The recruiters were awesome, but the hiring manager was a different story. If you have a candidate in mind that you want to hire why waste your time with interviewing? When I stepped in the door, he wasn't at all nice. I have never been in an interview that was so unprofessional. Based on the personality profile, I was told that relationship building (my strength) in this position is frowned upon. I was expected to drive customers to the breaking point. In other words to the point of throwing me out. I was also told that after we get the clients money, we can start to build a relationship at that point. At this point I was scratching my head. He went on to talk about how he needed to get rid of some of his existing employees. He said that he was on the fence with hiring me. What really threw me off was marketing expectations. Pulling business cards and then coming back to the office to set appointments are marketing styles of the 80's. In addition, he expected the person hired to split bonuses with a senior person for a year and a half. Asking about corporate leads seemed to be a bad question. After a few questions I decided in my mind that this wasn't worth it and took every opportunity to shorten the interview.If this is a sample size of the company, they have issues. Being in one of the largest markets in the nation it was a very bad representation of the company. Now I understand why Insperity decided not to internally promote district managers and to create training programs for outsourced talent.
