Interview Details – Uncomplicated interview process over 2 sessions before presentation to the client for onsite interview. The company did a good job of making sure I was a good fit for the position.

Technical Recruiter Interview

Technical Recruiter
Woburn, MA

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Sapphire Technologies in April 2010.

Interview Details – 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 Question – Mainly questions about who you are as a person   Answer Question

Reason 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.
