    Technical Writer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Rylem (Seattle, WA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    A segmented, formal interview and screening process in order to be submitted to a contract role.

    Source person for initial phone contact, followed by a generic on-site group overview (delivery needs polish--public speaking requires diction and a regulated speed of delivery) with other candidates, followed by a 1-on-1 with a placement recruiter who walks you through suggested resume format, along with test interview questions prior to being introduced in a future appointment with their client for a telephone or in-person interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Rylem (Seattle, WA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    There was an initial phone screen, that was just me and the recruiting coordinator. Then an in-person loop on site in the office in Pioneer Square. I first met with 2 people at once (Coordinator & Manager), then a 1:1(Sr. Partner). The phone screen was straight forward, the in-person was more behavioral.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at Rylem (Seattle, WA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Was recruited via LinkedIn. Cold calls don't often play out, but I was impressed to be contacted almost immediately after responding to their email. The phone recruiter asked good screening questions that included specifics of their client company and the role they sought to fill. I was scheduled for an in-person appointment for the next day. I then met with four members of their team. While some people find a panel interview difficult, I appreciated the time efficiency of that approach. They were very clear about next steps in presenting me to the client company.

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Rylem.

    Interview

    A recruiter for Amazon approached me about some job opportunities. I went through three phone interviews with Amazon and heard nothing back. About a week later a person at Rylem emailed me saying her colleague at Amazon had given her my information and she told me I didn’t get the position at Amazon. You can imagine I was upset. I found out through a third party that I didn’t get a job at Amazon and that my personal CONFIDENTIAL information had been given out by Amazon to a third party. Rylem has inside people at Amazon feeding them confidential information on candidates. This must be part of the unethical practices that I see other reviews on.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Rylem (Seattle, WA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    the 1st interview was 3.5 hours. i was told that it would be 2 hours. (i met w/ 4 ppl...one of which was 1 of the 3 owners) it was fairly conversational- i felt good afterwards and was fairly excited to come back if asked. I was called back for the 2nd interview. i met w/ the same owner again and another in sales. i was told to be prepared for tough questions because i wasnt direct enough prior. when i came in i was drilled with questions. some of which were inappropriate. i felt EXTREMELY uncomfortable. the most uncomfortable a man has ever made me feel in an interview. ex. (what kind of hours do you like to work? are you the type of girl that likes to play in the sun all day and work at night?). i went blank in the face and said "what?" he said "i like to be in the sun too"- WHO asks and says that? he also asked "what would your brother say is the biggest improvement/change you need to make?". He also asked if my family was here in WA too. (WHY DOES THAT MATTER?) another- "how are you being payed right now?"

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Rylem (Seattle, WA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    The people interviewing you don't know what they're talking about. The sourcing manager has no recruiting experience, so the quality of talent is low.
