    Vice President Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I was contacted via LinkedIn and had a short phone call where everything sounded great. I got into the meeting and could tell right away that this was an old school company. The interior is something out of the 60's and not in a good way. Not the best vibe from the people either. I waited for 45 minutes for the meeting as people kept coming out saying to wait one more minute. As soon as sat with the senior manager, I could tell this was a very unorganized company that was not up to date with todays recruiting needs

    IT Recruiter Interview

    The process took a dayinterviewed at The Forum Group in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Within five minutes I could tell this was not a updated recruitment firm. I met with a couple of people that really pushed that the company is VET owned, which is all well and good, but does not mean that it's all a competitive recruitment firm needs to be. They seemed to be a bit desperate and too fast to want to hire me. I was also left for about 20 minutes before they started the interview. In a city with great companies, don't waste your time in 1970.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at The Forum Group in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted through LinkedIn by their HR individual. We went back and forth and finally I went into meet some people. I was shocked at how little many of the recruiters worked in the industries they were recruiting for. For a company that speaks so much about having experience in their fields and being ethical there were very little. Very old looking offices with an odd smell. Seems all sales oriented and very uptight.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at The Forum Group in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    The worse interview ever. I waited for 45 minutes. They had met me for 30 minutes and the next day I got an offer. No way. Something is very off here

    Interview Questions
    • They tried to sell me on their technology. When I asked about it nobody could give me a straight answer except we're working on it. I should have done my homework, this company does not even have a facebook or twitter page. Technology?   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    It was a very quick process. I met some senior people and they offered the position the next day. I should have done my homework, the other account executives have all only been here under 8 months but the senior mgmt. who are all in their 60's have been here their whole career but there is no one in between those levels.

    Interview Details

    Very informal, meet the manager of the group you will work in and then the owner. No real HRprocess or HR person involved.

    Interview Questions
    • Thre was nothing unexpected or difficult. Asked why I thought I would be successful in the role.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They do not negotiate, at least as far as I know. I think there are a few people in the firm that have special deals and that makes others resentful. Everyone is supposed to get the same commissions.
