Recruiter Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Raleigh, NC

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at PRA.

Interview Details – Unorganized, there were too many chains of people conducting tasks, was asked to fill out a background check release form before interviewing, most people seemed they felt a sense of entitlement from where they've been and now they're "king of the castle", dropped the "F" bomb amongst other words.

Interview Question – Why should we NOT hire you?   View Answer

Reason for Declining – It wasn't a good fit personality-wise.
