Interview Details – The interview process is pretty intense. After they review your resume, they will set you up for a phone interview. The step after that is an on-site interview. The on-site takes about 3 hours, but it's not all interviewing. They let you sit with some of the current employees so you can actually SEE and hear what the job is prior to your interview which was good.
Interview Question – What is something that your previous manager would say you could improve on? Answer Question

Interview Details – The interview process wasn't too bad. The first is a phone interview where they ask you a bunch of "cookie cutter" questions (i.e. how would you describe yourself?; What do know about TQL?; etc.) At the end they ask you to do a 3 minute sales pitch of anything you choose. The second interview (for me anyways) was a Skype video chat. It was pretty weird, mainly because they have you connect to a skype session, but call you on your cell phone for audio. Additionally, there was someone shadowing the interview, which for some may add some pressure. After the second interview they did not contact me for about a month and then they sent me a "follow-up" email from the career fair, basically reseting the process of interviews. Finally after another month, they sent me an email saying I didn't match what they were looking for. It was only later that I found out that they hire people without college degrees, and I don't know about anyone else, but I prefer to accept a job where college degrees actually mean something.
Interview Question – 3 minute sales pitch is probably their hardest part of the interview, and it wasn't that hard either Answer Question

Interview Details – A phone interview with basic questions regarding your work history and educational background. The person interviewing you will go through each job on your resume and ask you questions like "what was the number one thing you take away from this job?" and such. One curveball, you'll be asked to give a 3-5 minute sales pitch on a product or service of your choice.
Interview Question – Sales Pitch Answer Question

Interview Details – The recruiter contacted me because she saw my resume on indeed. First was a phone interview just talking about job history and hours worked at those job. This was followed by a second phone interview where I had to prepare a 2-minute sales pitch about anything I wanted. After doing this, I was invited on site for an interview where I had to take a computer assessment about time zones, the company, and math skills. Then I met with the general manager and then offered the position.

Interview Details – Met TQL at career fair. Did phone interview then followed up with in-person interview. Nothing too different other than a sales pitch at the end of the phone interview. In-person interview went well until the last meeting with the hiring manager who was not very personable and did not seem too interested in me.
