    As this is a contract position, hiring and paperwork is done remotely. Interviewing is at the request of the contracting company, Honeywell. One telephone interview from Honeywell HR was followed up by a call from the hiring manager. She knows me from a previous contract stint of 2years so the call was mainly to say congrats and welcome back.

    Only had 1 interview. It was an in person interview by 2 people. I was hired the next day for the position. The environment seemed pretty laid back and welcoming at the time of the interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at The Fountain Group (Tampa, FL) in February 2010.

    Interview

    1 brief phone screening and 1 in person interview. Try making any experience you have relevant to Recruiting and staffing. Talk about sales, onboarding, online searching, anything that can make a connection. If you already are a Recruiter I would consider another place to work. I told them about how I helped recruit employees at my previous company, how sales and recruiting are similar, etc. The interview isnt hard.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult questions. Just sell yourself. They are looking for people who can think on their feet be taught.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The rate I believe is a flat rate. If you have previous experience there may be some room for negotiation, but for the most part they are looking for entry level people who have no room to negotiate
