Interview Question – The hardest question was trying to come up with a situation where you made a mistake. For me that was the hardest because no one likes to talk about a past mistake, even though I did overcome it. Answer Question

Interview Details – Interview process was a positive experience. It included not only management, but peer interviews as well, which allowed me to meet some of the individuals I would be directly working and interacting with. The process required three separate interviews with peers, senior management and HR, but the plus side was that it spanned only two weeks.
Interview Question – The most unexpected question I was asked was during a follow-up phone interview with my Sr. Manager (after an in person interview) in which she explained that the company had been acquired by another...and asked if I still wanted to be part of her team/company. She was most gracious and sympathetic in her approach. I took the plunge and was able to remain there for two years prior to my position being eliminated. Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Randstad US.
Interview Details – First contacts were very professional and enthusiastic, as was the phone interview with the regional manager. Second interview was also informative and made me feel like I would fit in and enjoy the position. After corporate got involved, my opinion went down hill. Difficult to get through to people, had to have a DOT physical even though I wasn't applying for a driver position, and the DOT doc spend 5 minutes and claimed I had a physical problem. Had to spend my own money to get a note from my physician saying the DOT doc was off his gourd! Then once I was offered the job, no one knew when I would start! Very disorganized and off-putting.
Interview Question – none--interview had very few questions, almost as if they had already made up their mind and just wanted to meet me in person. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Very disorganized, very negative. Nobody knew what hours I would work or when I would start, and I had to ask what the wages would be, since the offer didn't contain that vital information!
