    Email correspondence was initiated a little over a week after submitting an online application. A short and standard phone interview then followed. The next step is an in person interview that was less structured.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at SIRVA in November 2014.

    Interview

    The recruiter emailed me and tried to set up a time for a phone interview. We finally set up a date and time and then he never called. When I emailed him to follow-up he blamed it on another employee and didn't even apologize. By this point I had already realized what a joke this recruiter/company was but I went ahead and rescheduled a time for another phone interview. He called me ten minutes after our scheduled time and immediately told me that they were trying to fill the position by poaching someone from one of their competitors. I thought it was pretty bizarre that he would say that but he was entertaining so I stayed on the line. He then tried pushing me into a low-level position within the company that was located in a different state! I then ended the call and wished him the best of luck.

    Standard questions involving background and how to handle different situations. They were keen on trying to use what I would call unethical tricks of the trade to handle different situations.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at SIRVA.

    Interview

    People were very friendly at their office, very welcoming. They (two managers from different departments) gave a much more detailed outlook of the position during the interview. Very open to questions. Be prepared to provide a minimum of 7 references before the interview at their office. This was something I found out about 1 day before the interview, after having confirmed in the beginning of the week for the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • There really wasn't any unexpected questions for the interview, they were very professional in finding out whether one is qualified for the position.   1 Answer

    Interview

    Phone and in-person interview. Pretty easy interview with standard interview questions. (Some STAR/behavioral interview questions). ***Was promised a yes/no by the end of the week and did not receive a yes or no and received no feedback. I contacted the recruiter for feedback but received no response. Very unprofessional.***

    Interview

    As the recruiter was well versed, I had a good phone interview and moved onto an in-house second round being flown out. Culture was a big thing as well as knowledge/skill set. I really enjoyed the process but was only there for 2 hours thinking I would have more people to meet.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at SIRVA.

    Interview

    The initial interview focused more on the basic skill-set questions, i.e. are proficient in Microsoft suite, etc. The 3 interviews that took place after were also skill-set questions. I guess they truly wanted you to hit the ground running once you get the position

    Interview

    A very long process. It took 3 phone interviews in order for me to get to the onsite interview. I met with 4 different people on the same day and took about 2 hours. A week later, I was offered the job and they sent me a formal letter with salary and benefits. The whole process took about 1.5 months.
