    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Spherion in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    Played phone tag with remote office for a week and a half, finally got a face-to-face interview locally. Was extended a job offer, only to have it revoked less than three hours later, with no explanation. This was an exceptionally frustrating, misleading and disappointing experience. Once the process was over, it was as if I never existed; I received no further response from either office.

    Negotiation Details
    i didnt try to negotiate, But the interviewer made me feel very comfortable and at ease, most employers make you feel pressured or ask you questions like where do you plan to be with this company in five to ten years? But who knows what the future holds, so how do you answer a question like that, but they didnt do that its was very nice.

The interviewer said she would make a decision by a certain date and she did. I sent a thank you to her and the agency heard back from her within a short time after that. SEND A THANK YOU NOTE!

    Call Center Customer Service - Hewitt Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in The Woodlands, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in The Woodlands, TX
    Application Details

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Spherion in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    I took and passed several tests online, took over an hour. I interviewed in person, seemed to go well. Filled out some more forms online agreeing to submit to a background check. Took a drug test. I got the results of the background check & drug test by contacting the 3rd party company that conducts them for Spherion. Everything looked fine. But Spherion doesn't have the decency or professionalism to bother giving me a call back. I don't have a clue why they won't at least tell me something.
