Very Easy Interview
Recruiter Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Spherion in June 2011.
Interview Details – The Hiring process was not very structured. I was initially called about a position, but when I got to the interview, it was for a completely different positions.
Interview Question – What are your strengths, weaknesses? Why do you think we should select your for this position. Answer Question
Recruiter Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
The process took 2 days - interviewed at Spherion in March 2008.
Interview Details – Very quick interview process, they typically move very quickly. First there is a 30 minute face to face interview with the Director. He does bring up a lot of hesitations as to why he does not want to hire you and he expects you to debate thoe reasons. At the end of that interview, I was scheduled to come back for a job preview/shadow the next day. During the realistic job preview, I spent a couple of hours with a Senior Recruiter. I was also told not to dress up for the 2nd interview so that I would fit in better. My offer was made the following Monday and I started working there 1 week later.
Interview Question – Why do you think you would be a good recruiter? View Answer
Negotiation Details – I tried to negotiate salary but was told it was not negotiable. I know that they do NOT negotiate, especially in this economy, so don't waste your time trying to get more money.
Recruiter Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Spherion in October 2011.
Interview Details – Initially filled out application and submitted resume which the staff checked out thoroughly and then called me back in for interview based on referral that they received. The recruiter did a preliminary interview, then the manager did a more indepth interview, which included asking me detailed questions about the companies I worked at, ie, revenue, number of employees, overhead, report generations, etc.
Interview Question – How long have you known (Name Omitted, and is he still married?) View Answer
Reason for Declining – 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.
