    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

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