    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Monster Worldwide (Boston, MA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    1. Met the Recruiter at my school career fair.
    2. Got an email from the recruiter to setup an initial phone screening with the hiring manager. Very professional in setting up date and time.
    3. The phone screening went really well.
    4. Heard back from the recruiter that I was selected for the final round of in-person interviews, asking for availability. They have a really detailed process.
    5. I sent my availability but did not hear back for a few days.
    On following up again, I understood that they had held off the in-person interviewing.

    Very weird!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Monster Worldwide.

    Interview

    Applied online, was contacted a week later by a recruiter to come in for an interview. First interview was with 2 managers who asked normal STAR type questions, "Give an example of a situation when...." "How would you handle an irate customer"... interview was about 20 minutes long. Got a call back about 2 days later by the same recruiter to come in for a second interview. This was with 2 other managers, one being the department manager for which I applied. Same type of questions along with questions about skills I have used in past jobs and my degree. Weaknesses and Strengths... Questions come from a booklet of questions made up by corporate. A couple days later, the recruiter called with an offer and information on when to start and information on the position. Overall, not a difficult interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Scenerio questions will put you on the spot but using the STAR technique will help you sound more appealing while telling your story.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation... they flat out told you what the starting pay was, which was nothing great, but it was something.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Monster Worldwide in October 2013.

    Interview

    I was lied to throughout the process. The Recruiter and Managers talked up the company so well to mask the underlying issues with the company. I should have heeded the warning signs.

    The process itself was simple. A Recruiter contacted me and talked about my past experience. I was then invited onsite for a panel interview with some leads and managers. After, I was invited again for a follow up and presentation interview. Within a couple of weeks, the Recruiter contacted me with an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about your past sales quotas and how you performed against them.   Answer Question
