    Senior Technical Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Leandro, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Leandro, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at TriNet Group in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    It's a long process. Recruiter did the initial phone screening. Then, the hiring manager called and did his phone screening. Third round is in-person with 6 people. Fourth round is another in-person with 4 people. So, be prepared to be interviewed by about 12 people.

    Fourth round was awful especially with VP-Product who was very hostile. I was wondering "did I have to jump thru all the hoops to meet this guy?".

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at TriNet Group.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by someone through a referral, not my end supervisor, however, the two worked closely together. He was very professional, kind and asked the right questions to get to know me and see if I would be a good fit for the role. I could tell he was very experienced at this. He made me feel at ease and was not intimidating and didn't play games as so many interviewers out there do.

    Human Resources People Transfer Lead 00257436 Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at TriNet Group in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted directly via LinkedIn by an Accenture recruiter to apply for this role. Based on my LinkedIn profile, she exclaimed I would be a great fit for the role. She matched my skills and I provided times that I would be available for my next interview. It seemed to go very well and I proceeded to the next steps and updated my resume (even though I'm not actively looking for a new job). I let the recruiter know that I am not 'actively looking' but would be open if time and money were right. It seemed to go well and she was excited to move me to the next person.

    Interview Questions
    • I never got an interview as promised and instead got a rejection email saying that I wasn't qualified to begin with, even though I had been pre-screened and told I was highly qualified. It seems Accenture was just collecting my information, or it's discriminatory. There's a big disconnect.   Answer Question

    Regional Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at TriNet Group.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed initially with recruiter then passed along to Director of Sales, then passed along to 2 field reps then another Director of Sales and finally with VP.

    Everything went fine until i spoke with VP. They coordinated with me to do a video interview in which the VP, he did not show up for the video chat instead he took my call while over the phone while he was driving. I should have known then that they do not value my time. . After that i called and tried to follow up with recruiter and Director of Sales and heard nothing for a day. He advised me he would call in 5 mins, but instead avoided my call and email. Extremely unprofessional. Finally i was able to get the Director of Sales to pick up once i called from my house line and he seemed shocked that i got through. He advised the recruiter should have called me yesterday to say i was out of the running. Which of course i did not.

    Trinet should really work on their communication internally and with their candidates. Shame on the recruiter and the hiring manager.

    Anonymous Employee in Bradenton, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at TriNet Group in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and a few days later contacted via email to schedule a 30 minute phone interview. The phone interview consisted of an overview of the company, position, and to verify my resume. Received an email to set up a manager interview. Interview was like a STAR questionnaire and went over what the company was all about. Then I received another email to set up a peer interview and job shadowing. Peer interview was similar to the manager interview and job shadowing was for 30 minutes and was an opportunity to see the many applications they use. Next day I received email to visit a third party site and add five references. Four of them had to be co-workers and one had to be from a supervisor.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at TriNet Group.

    Interview Details

    Worst one I've ever experienced! 7 rounds of interviews over 2 and a half months and getting rejected after I sent 2 follow up emails three weeks later to find out that they wasted my time and entertained themselves. The corporate Recruiter and people I interviewed with via webchat were very professional however the one person who called me in for the in person interview was Elizabeth the Unprofessional one - chewing gum when interviewing and looking at me crazy as if I was stupid. Glad I did not get an offer, rather work with someone who is professional

    RSC Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I had a total of four interviews before getting hired. One phone interview, two interviews with the Director of Sales, and 1 interview with the Regional VP of Sales. I suggest being prepared for all interviews, as the process can become quite complex due to the nature of the PEO industry.
