    Technical Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at K2 Partnering Solutions (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    One of their recruiters reached out to me via LinkedIn. After meeting for coffee, we set up a time for me to go into the office and meet with a couple of team members. It was such a negative and discouraging experience. We agreed that I'd be meeting with two team members and that it would take up to an hour of my time. I ended up having to talk to three people and ran 30 minutes behind. The first person I spoke with was pleasant and we had a nice, interesting conversation. The second person I spoke with would not even look me in the eyes while asking the standard, boring questions. The third person I spoke with seemed completely uninterested in what I had to say. When I asked her one question - she started bullshitting her way out. Overall, I got a sense of being slammed with unnecessary questions as if I was passing some sort of an exam in school. The two people I spoke with made me feel very negative about the whole company in general. There's so much competition here in SF that they really need to step it up. They did not even follow up with me after the interview, even though they said they would.

    Contracting Role Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at K2 Partnering Solutions.

    Interview

    The associate was very very aggressive in getting my resume and to get the NDA signed and as soon as she got those items, never heard back again. All along, she was saying she had multiple IMMEDIATE positions open to be filled. Not even an acknowledgement that she received the documents. Bit bummed about the overall experience. Puts the company in a negative light.

    Interview Questions

    • Never heard back after they collected the NDA and Resume. My advice to potential candidates - do not sign NDA or anything or even give your resume to an associate of this company. Unless you know someone personally. There are other reputable agencies to work with in the industry. This company seems like a scam to me.   1 Answer

    Junior IT Recruiter Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at K2 Partnering Solutions.

    Interview

    I was contacted bya K2 recruiter via Linkedin and figured I would give it a try. After a couple of emails back and forth with the the recruiter she asked if we could set up a date for a phone interview and gave me one day and time and asked if that would work. I did not because I had to work so I explaned that to her and gave her an alternative. I did not hear back from her for almost 4 weeks, even though she would reply to emails within hrs sometimes. We set up another date and she never called. When I emailed her about it she said she tried calling but i never picked up. I was next to my phone the whole time and did not have any missed calls. So she asked if we could reschedule, we did and I gave her my home number as well. Just to be on the safe side. She did not call again and I waited almost 45 minutes this time. In my opinion that is very unprofessional and a company that treats applicants like that is not a place that I want to be part of.

    Interview

    I applied for a Recruiter position within K2 Partnering Solutions. I was contacted on the following day for a phone interview. The recruiter was late for the phone call which it can happen sometimes. The conversation was great and the Recruiter verbally scheduled a second phone screen with the hiring manager. I was not contacted by the hiring manager. I reached out to the Recruiter I initially talked to but I never heard from K2 Partnering again…
