The process took a day - interviewed at Jefferson Wells International in February 2009.
Interview Details – The interview process first consisted of a phone interview with Human Resources. After expressing interest in the position, I was asked to come into the offices. I met with 2 Directors in which I explained my background and they informed me about the job responsibilities. I was then asked to meet with the Managing Director who also went into detail about the position and again I reiterated my background. No hard questions were asked. I felt it was very informal.

Interview Details – Phone call from recruiter after being found on Monster. Quick screening interview, then in-person with hiring manager the following week. Received offer about a week later.

Interview Details – The interview process started normal as expected. 2 phone interviews with a recruiter and then another phone interview with JW Business Development Director. 4th phone interview with HR Generalist at JW. Finally, face to face interview with Managing Director which went well. Seclected to come back again for a group interview with 5 employees over a 5 hour timeframe. Trial closed each interviewer by asking if they would be recommending me for the job and they said they would. Then it got wierd. No word for 5 days and then after I called the recruitor several times, was told that they decided against hiring anyone. Checked with internal friend at company and still nobody hired after another month. Felt slighted that I went through 7 interviews, hours of research and preparation without even an explaination of why I was not given an offer. I can accept rejection, but I wasn't even notified or given a reason. Beware of this group.

Interview Details – Process consisted of 3 telephone interviews, an on-line intelligence and personaiity test, and 4 one-on-one interviews.

Interview Details – Sent resume to blind post on Ladders. Outside recruiter calls but cuts off phone interview after 10 minutes because she doesn't think I can handle JW's 16 C-level meetings/wk requirement. Three months later,a different employment agency sends my resume to local JW HR person. Interview set up but JW HR person a no show. Days later, local HR person and I have phone interview. Ten minutes in, she asks what my W2s were for the previous years. When I defer, she basically ends interview. Month later, national recruiter calls and we have a professional interview. No offer.
