Interview Details – Recruiter contacted me and was plesant. I was then contacted by a hiring manager and did a short phone interview. Next, I was brought in for a face to face interview and then wisked off to a panel of three hiring managers. I was then introduced to two senior level managers and did a meet and greet. Two days later an offer letter was issued and accepted.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Monster Worldwide in September 2010.
Interview Details – Did a phone screen with an internal recruiter and then with the hiring manager. Then the HR recruiter had me fill out a lot of forms for background checks and a lot of other information in advance of being able to schedule an interview including a mandatory salary history and several references among other things. I had an in person interview with the hiring manager, his manager, and the director of that division. It was fairly informal and took about 2-3 hours including some time in a panel with two people interviewing me at once.
A day or two later I had an offer. I requested a 5% increase in the base and they agreed.

Interview Details – I was called by a recruiter for a phone interview. She asked for me to go through my job history, knowledge of computer programs, strengths, weaknesses. My main point is that she said that she would contact me within three days of the interview, but never did. It is disappointing to receive a rejection letter but when a promise is broken, it is even more disappointing. Obviously she may contact me later but already I feel animosity towards the company.

Interview Details – Interviewed for a project management position. Initial phone call, then asked to meet in Maynard. Met with 5 people, including manager and manager's manager and some of the team.

Interview Details – I had a 1/2 hour phone interview with the hiring manager. He asked me about some of my background as well as some basic technical questions. I was not well prepared and did not do well with the technical questions; as a result the interview did not go well but I learned a very valuable lesson. There are numerous sites with typical interview questions, use them to prepare for your interviews! I did and subsequent interviews have gone much better.

It seemed to me that the team was under skilled for the work required of them. There were recent global DNS issues that were highly visible. The most talented Systems Administrator and department manager left for the same company within weeks of each other and the impression I got was that they took most of the knowledge and skill with them.
The culture seemed to be great a year or so before I interviewed but hey had since stopped matching 401k, eliminated company lunches and a number of other benefits.
Interview Question – I wasn't asked any difficult technical questions throughout the interview process Answer Question
Reason for Declining – They low balled me after an exhaustive interview process. When I counter offered they barely budged. Their bonus plan was paid out in restricted stock units instead of cash and there was a 4 year vesting period. I missed the cut-off for 2010 by a week and they refused to grand father me in so I was looking at a 2 year wait to get 25% of my 2010 bonus. They only offered same-sex domestic partner benefits.
