    Operations Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I was told Republic pays their Supervisors very well. Three years later, clearing many tough obstacles, only making 900 dollars more. Still at the bottom of my pay grade and people with less experience and drive are making way more. Asskissing and friends of the bosses family seem to be the only way of getting paid more. Sad, the CEO sounded like he had the right idea. Farce or people under him just don't care what he wants.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Republic Services.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was contacted by a recruiter for an initial screening. My first interview was with 2 managers and I was presented with situational scenarios and asked extensive questions about change management, communication with stakeholders, and business analysis processes. The second interview was a 'meet and greet' with the BA team and included many of the same questions, but more surrounding ability to work on a team. There was an opportunity at the end of both interviews to ask questions.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Republic Services.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted to complete a phone interview. I attended the phone interview which was quite lengthy and outlined my previous skills and accomplishments. I felt very uncomfortable throughout the phone interview as the sales manager asked some seemingly personal questions which I didn't feel were appropriate. Nonetheless, I was eager to move forward as it appeared to be an excellent opportunity. I was thrilled to be contacted within 2 weeks for an in person interview. I arrived at the location early and was asked to come in for my in person interview. The interview process was extremely lengthy, much longer than a typical interview. I was quite appalled at the managers questions which were totally out of line and extremely inappropriate. To top it off I went through this over 2 hour interview process and was told by the manager at the very end...thank you for your time. We actually already hired someone for the position and they are starting this week.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Republic Services in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was contacted a few days later for a 1:1 interview. Interviewed with the Office Manager who raved about how my skills/experience were perfect for the position. I honestly believed that the interview went very well. I was told that I would hear something back by the following week. Left a msg for the Office Manager the following week to see if the position had been filled...no callback, which I thought was extremely rude.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Scottsdale, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Scottsdale, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Republic Services in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by internal recruiter after applying on their web site. Phone interview scheduled and was asked basic questions about my past work experience. This interview took only about 20 minutes. A day or two later I was contacted about going into their office for a 1 hour meeting with 3 hiring managers.

    The hiring managers asked some pretty standard questions about different situations such as when a project may have gone bad or working with difficult people. They took turns asking questions from a list they had. They gave me time at the end to ask questions and the interview lasted exactly 1 hour. At that time I was told the next steps if asked to go on in the process would be to talk with other Business Analysts and possibly the IT Director.

    A few days later I was asked to come in for another one hour interview with the current business analysts. They also had a list of questions in which they took turns asking. These questions were also pretty standard situational questions as well such as tell me a time when you did not get very good direction on a project. This interview lasted about 45 minutes which also included time for me to ask questions at the end.

    I never heard back from them again. I certainly understand if something from their perspective was not a good fit but at least send a form letter telling me another candidate with better qualifications was hired. I think it shows something about the company if you put in time going to two onsite interviews and they never respond back at all. It may be just one person or department but it may be indicative of corporate culture.
