    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

    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.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at TriNet Group in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    No phone interview was required. Pleasant interview experience. The management team in New York seemed very pleasant. Lots of questions to dig deep into your character and who you are vs resume explanations.

    If all goes well, the sales team also needs to approve of you when going out for lunch together on the next round.
