    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Philadelphia, PA
    Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at International SOS.

    Interview Details

    Contacted through LinkedIn, and then 2 telephone interviews. Met 3 people in person at the office outside Philadelphia including a recruiter and a peer. They had some trouble finding space for the interviews so the offices may be overcrowded or poorly organized but the people were friendly, professional and focused. The style of interview is conversational but heavy on specific relevant experience for the role. Everyone discussed the company culture so they see fit as a key success driver. Some behavioral questions throughout the meetings.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at International SOS in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    2rounds, first in the office London, line manager was nice, questions were reasonable (nothing like what is your biggest achivement in your life), HR representative was OK.
    Second round: some guy from the US office,he put the call on a speaker, the line quality was poor. I asked him couple of times to put me on a headset or something...He did not, which I think rude. After every question a noisy, grating sound came to my ear, this also did not really help me to think about his questions ( which was usual interview questions, with some stupid ones...). Honestly, I really did not want to work with them after this experience.
    Otherwise their office is in the middle of nowhere in London.
    It took them almost two months to say no...
