    Senior Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Maynard, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Maynard, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Monster Worldwide in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    A little odd I interviewed when they were laying off people. Recruiter was weird and didn't seem to have much knowledge about the position. Once interviewed by my supervisor I was very happy. I liked her a lot and most the people seemed nice.
    I felt like I knew more about media then they did which turns out to be true!

    Staff Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Monster Worldwide in July 2011.

    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.

    Don't Hold Your Breath Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Maynard, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Maynard, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Monster Worldwide in October 2010.

    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. Was told they would be making a decision very quickly and would be back in touch. That was almost 3 weeks ago, and nothing. Nada. Zilch. Follow-up notes have been ignored. And these folks are in the recruitment business?

    Senior Network Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed 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.

    National Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Maynard, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Maynard, MA
    Application Details

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Monster Worldwide in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    Total time from first touch to hire was 2 months and 2 interviews. Working for Monster isn't for entry-level sales professionals so they are quite aware of who will fit the build. It was more or less whether I would mesh well with the company. It was definitely the best interview process I've ever been through.

    Not much negotiation. They came in at the top so there wasn't much room for discussion.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Maynard, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Maynard, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Monster Worldwide in June 2010.

    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.
