    Price Protection Controller Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redmond, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redmond, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Spherion in June 2007.

    Interview Details

    My initial offer to come for an interview was via phone.
    The interview itself was very relaxed; took place in a fairly empty cafeteria and took only about 20-30 minutes.
    Besides the typical questions, one that stood out the most was a question on how you might go about measuring the traffic volume on Interstate-90, particularly as it passes of Mercer Island. I found this question valuable as the interviewer was able to get an accurate sense for my thought process and problem solving abilities.
    The job offer came within a few days of the interview, via phone.

    I got a very cold feeling from these people. There was not a genuine interest in helping others. The actions did not fit the words.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Spherion in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    Spherion found my resume on-line and contacted me via email to determine my interest. I confirmed my interest in the position that same day and received a telephone call the very next day.

    I was asked a series of questions regarding my previous position and management skills.

    I was asked to email a copy of my resume to the interviewer so that she could pass it on to the others, including the hiring manager (she was covering for them during their absence).

    I submitted a thank you email and did not hear back from them right away. Once I did hear back from them, all I heard was something to the effect of "that it's in her hands now. She'll contact you if interested".

    Interview Questions
    • Since this position requires managing individuals across the country from a remote location, I'm interested in what your some of your biggest challenges were withen managing a crew remotely, and how you met those challenges?   Answer Question
