Getting an Interview
Professional Development Program Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Transplace in March 2014.
Interview Details – Had a phone screen with 2 different managers and was called back a few weeks later for an on-site interview. I was required to make a 15-20 minute presentation on a topic related to their business and presented that to about 10 employees ranging from entry level to senior executives.

Logistic Analyst Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at Transplace.
Interview Details – Had 3 rounds of telephonic interviews which went well. The onsite interview was scheduled with 3 Managers/ directors in Frisco,TX and one included team from AZ. The hiring manager as well as the recruitment HR said that "interviews went very well and we would get back to you very soon" on next day .
After the interviews they did not get back to me for almost 5 weeks in spite of repeated follow up.
They didnt even reimburse my travel from Houston to Dallas for almost 6 weeks.
The experience was very frustrating and I really liked the job profile but this treatment was horrific.

Senior Manager Operations Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Transplace in September 2012.
Interview Details – Phone interview with HR, then a phone interview with the Vice President. This took place after recommendation from 2 employees.
The day after the VP interview, HR called me back and informed me that they wanted to hire someone locally instead of me. This did not make sense as I offered to cover my own relocation,
Interview Question – None, questions were simple, in fact I had more questions than the Vice President and they did not have the answers. Answer Question
