Very Difficult Interview

Costing Interview

Taylor, MI

I applied through a staffing agency - interviewed at Snelling in March 2012.

Interview Details – I interviewed with the Snelling recruiter, then had an interview with the manufacturing employer. I first called the Snelling recruiter then I filled out an application, had an in person interfview and called the agency twice a week to let them know that I was interested. I was looking for logistics or manufacturing positions.

The recruiter sent me a job description for an cost analyst position and then I interviewed with the hiring manager. His basic question was why have you jumped around so much? I was able to handle these questions well. Basically I answered that I had worked at a lot of S.E. Michigan manufacturing firms that had gone out of business or changed business and manufacturing processes. They were no longer making buggy whips or metal fasteners. I went back to school to get the full background in manufacturing that I needed. I have heard that America now needs manufacturing people. They'd have a lot more if employers didn't lay the workers off every other week. After completing the clients projects that were supposed to last for decades, I was laid off from his short term project.

Interview Details – The first step is to fill out there application online. Once you contact them and they have a position, they call you in for an interview and some testing. Based on the interview and the testing, they offer you any positions if any are available. Interviewing is very nerve-wracking but the do their best to make it stress-free. One of the recruiters sits with you one on one and speaks with you about your resume, interests, and any openings they have that might fit you. They also have some testing, but they have it set up in a quiet room with minimum distractions.

Temporary Intern Interview

Temporary Intern
Newark, NJ

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Snelling in December 2009.

Interview Details – After online contact I interviewed with Snelling and met with one placement specialist after I took a series of Microsoft Office tests including Excel and Word. We just talked about my background, interests, and what type of work atmosphere I wanted to be placed in. She discussed what openings and offices they currently had available and that if other opportunities became available I would be notified if deemed appropriate. I had initially taken a short term position with a local realty firm and then found other openings that were more appropriate. The interview is mostly to make sure you are a presentable and professional candidate and to ensure you will be entering an environment that is a good fit were you can perform at an acceptable level. The staff was pretty straight forward and conscise in the process.

Interview Question – What type of work environment do you ideally see yourself performing in?   Answer Question
