Interviewed at Premiere Global Services
Interview Details – Semantics, but the job was not as advertised. This company, especially the finance department uses staffing agencies as a way to get the desperate.
Interview Question – Why do you want to work for us? Answer Question
Very Difficult Interview
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 8 weeks - interviewed at Premiere Global Services in December 2012.
Interview Details – A third-party recruiter sourced me for the direct-hire position. She phone screened and met with me face-to-face, as expected from a recruiter.
My first phone screen lasted less than 10 minutes, which I thought was a bad sign. I heard back about a week later that they wanted to schedule an interview, which I did. That interview went well and lasted several hours, but not all stakeholders were in the office, so I had to come back two weeks later to meet the remaining people. Total time from first contact to offer letter: 8 weeks.
Interview Question – There weren't any curve balls, but the people I interviewed with are no-nonsense. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Negotiation wasn't hard, because I was going through a third-party recruiter.
I applied through other source and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Premiere Global Services.
Interview Details – It was a three step process. Phone, then 2 in person interviews.
Interview Question – Pretty standard questions Answer Question
Negotiation Details – All offers are negotiable. Expect a counter to your request, so request more than you want.
Very Easy Interview
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Premiere Global Services in January 2012.
Interview Details – I had two phone interviews with my supervisor and again with his supervisor, and a face to face interview with my immediate supervisor. Interview process seemed adhoc and included no technical skills survey or review. We hired one fella because he had oracle experience. It was only after we hired him we discovered he couldn't write SQL queries. He got one week notice.
Interview Question – There really wasnt any. It was my perception that they needed to fill this slot ASAP at any cost. As i discovered - nobody else at PGi wants this overly demanding "quarterback" position - especially those who had done it before! Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I saw some minimal negotiations around vacation. One guy had worked as a contractor for 5 years, and we wanted him to take a permanent position. The standard is 1 week vacation the first year - and he negotiated 2. (Of course that was a ruse - they dont pay it anyway.) If you work for this company, demand they provide you vacation pay upon separation or walk away! Also - get on the exception list for their vacation grandfathering or you will lose earned wages!
The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Premiere Global Services in December 2011.
Interview Details – Internal position. Online application, then emailed by the Internal Recruiter to ask candidates to fill out an SEM Assessment (essay questions).
Questions on the assessment: 1) After carefully reviewing the job description, explain how you meet the requirements of the position & how you will contribute to the success of the team. 2) Describe your experience conducting research/investigations affecting clients. Be specific about your approach, your rate of success & any other points you may feel are relevant. 3) Give an example of when you developed & communicated solutions to client problems in a systematic, specific, and very clear manner. What media did you use to present to the client in the example you provided? 4) Present a scenario describing your time management skills and experience with prioritizing work and meeting deadlines. 5) This position requires contact with all levels of clients, from staff assistant to CEO via phone, email and/or conference call to notify of issue and root cause, guide and council to resolve issue to 100% satisfaction. Provide specific examples that demonstrate your ability to engage with level with multiple levels of customers and the results that were affected because of your engagement with them.
Then, they selected 8 people to interview. They asked about 12 questions if I remember correctly. Questions like: tell me about a time when ...you had trouble understanding something that everyone else got right away, you were wrong, you had to work with someone you didn't like, you did something completely new to you, etc. They also asked about my experience with different internal tools and MS Office products.
They then did a 2nd interview and a kind of simulation, but I did not make it to that level. From here, they selected their new team member. Start to finish, took about 2 weeks. Overall, I enjoyed getting more interview experience.

Interview Question – what three triats describe you best Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Premiere Global Services in February 2010.
Interview Details – I interviewed for this position believing that I had a realistic opportunity for the job. After going through what I was told as the final interview process, I received no answer or feedback about the opportunity. I sent a thank you letter, and gave a follow voice mail to the sales manager as well as assistant. I just think that it was rude to not respond at all to my messages. I was told to specifically follow up with the sales manager to find the result. Days later, I feel that no response from them meant no interest.
Aside from the obvious, the company didn't seem to have things in order. Both personal interviews, I was told were going to be panel interviews with at least two people. There seemed to always be some conflict or delay. Initially I attributed the lack of consideration due to a busy schedule. But in hindsight, I see that this is just a place that is lacking in management skills. I have no regrets about the missed opportunity.
