    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at International SOS (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing was especially difficult. I think they knew I had the experience for the job and were focused on fit.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at International SOS (Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview got arranged by an external recruiter on Friday evening for a Monday morning 8am interview with the Regional IT Director. Interview was conducted by 2 people in a hotel café while one of the interviewers was eating breakfast. I thought it was not professional, especially when getting interrupted by other International SOS staff asking to join the table for breakfast during the interview conversation.
    Interview questions were not complicated, quite straight forward. No brain teasers. One sided interview, interviewers asked all the questions, and waited for answers. Never once asked if I had any questions, or clarification for the role.

    • What's your strengths? What's your weakness? Describe working with external vendors.   Answer Question
