    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed 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 online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Monster Worldwide (Florence, SC) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Drawn out and disorganized. I interview with three people named Neil, Trevor and Bill. Of the three, Bill seemed to know about the company and the process but Trevor asked some of the worst interview questions I have ever heard. It seemed he was unprepared and knew less about the job description and company than I did. Neil just seemed to ask cookie cutter questions that started with "Tell me about a time .." I would say he was equally clueless.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you faced a challenge that required a difficult decision. (Neil)   1 Answer
    • Have you ever not met a deadline? (Neil)   1 Answer
    • Can you tell me a little about yourself? (Trevor)   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed 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.

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