    Technical Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Woburn, MA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sapphire Technologies (Woburn, MA) in April 2010.

    Interview

    I was impressed with Sapphire's professionalism. They were quick to respond to my inquiry about the position, and during the interview they were very relaxed and open/honest throughout the whole meeting. They even brought in a fellow Technical Recruiter to give me an unbiased inside scoop.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    I turned down the position because I have 4 years experience, and should have known this was an entry level position with only a $30k base, and an OTE of less than $50k annually. Plus the sales environment is phone based/cold calling, short sales cycle, and very very transactional. Great position for someone looking to start in sales, but not for a seasoned rep.

    Technical Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Woburn, MA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Sapphire Technologies (Woburn, MA) in December 2009.

    Interview

    Sapphire has a lengthy hiring process, and you'll meet with multiple people. First, either through a referral or applying on their web site, the manager doing the hiring will interview you on the phone. Then you'll get to meet the manager in person, followed by shorter interviews with members of the team you'll work with. I met with a recruiting lead and another senior member of the team.
