    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at SHI International.

    Interview

    The interview process was very comfortable. I was called in and was interviewed by 2 individuals. After the interview I then had to complete a questionnaire. I wouldn't say it was challenging but indeed required you to use your problem solving skills in a situation that required immediate attention. After the interview I received a phone call that they wanted to proceed with the background check. Human resource was very helpful over phone/email they constantly stayed in touch with me and updated me on my status.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at SHI International (Austin, TX) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Really easy, phone interview, then two in person interviews on right after the other in the office. Really weird office they put you in. Didn't feel comfortable at all. They just asked basic what is your work experience, explain a time when you were challenged, and be prepared with examples. Like I said if you are intelligent, have a mild college degree you will be hired.

    Interview Questions

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SHI International (Austin, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    In the initial phone screen almost all questions were regarding whether I would be willing to work for their low salary. The recruiter invited me in to meet with her and the hiring manager. At my in person interview, I sat in the main lobby for 25 minutes past my interview time before they finally came and got me. I wasn't very impressed at all.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at SHI International (Austin, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Met with the HR representative and Account Manager. They were both quick and to the point, assertive with their questions and wanted to see if you would respond similarly. The format of both interviews was like that, about 10 big questions each about your background and if you would be someone that could be an asset to effectively bring more customers in for them.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at SHI International.

    Interview

    It was very comfortable. First you meet with a recruiter and then with a head of the department. Very friendly and they just want to make sure you are a good fit for the position. Be aware of what you will be required to do and show your enthusiasm. A lot of young people within the office.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at SHI International (Austin, TX) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Quick phone interview to gauge your interest. In person interview with recruiter, then with hiring manager. The recruiter is very nice and doesn't present many challenging questions. The hiring manager tends to put you on the spot. I believe this is done to see if you can handle the pressures of cold calling. They are looking for a positive reaction to negatively portrayed scenarios.
