Interview Details – Had one interview that was set up through a friend who works there. The work culture looks laid back with a good amount of young people. Everyone did seem a little overworked but it still felt like a healthy place. When I followed up a week after the interview they told me that the position had been cancelled by the higher ups because they failed to file the correct paperwork for exempt/non exempt. I definitely wouldn't interview with them again after that.
Interview Question – Most difficult/unexpected question was "How well do you work alone?" since the job was to lead a team and work with lots of people throughout the company. Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at UTi Worldwide in September 2013.
Interview Details – I was contacted by a recruiter that places quite a few individuals at this conpany for IT and Finance. The usual quick phone interview with the recruiter about skills and what I'm looking for in a career.
My first interview with UTI was in person with the manger of the department. The usual behavior type questions and was asked to "run me through your resume." he asked followup questions to some of the things I said. It felt to me like an unrehearsed interview, no particular questions lined up. He was super-honest about the reality of the position and that it may not be ideal for all people. At the end of the Interview he let me know right away that he liked what he heard and wanted me to come in for a 2nd interview to meet his team.
The recruiter setup the 2nd interview- about a week later due to my schedule, I think they would have done it sooner in most circumstances. I met with a few people from the team who outlined more of what the job entails. They asked basic questions about how my background is relevant. They expressed some concerns about what the right candidate would need and then left the question fairly open to "tell us about your experience in this area." THey opened up for questions for me to ask them.
I was quite honest with them as well regarding some of the feedback I had read online about working there and let them know my concerns. They didnt' sugar coat anything and answered me directly and what I feel is honestly.
Interview Question – Nothing seemed too difficult. They did ask what my hobbies are, which is not all that common in the recent interviews I've been on. They asked me to speak about my communication skills, how I'd troubleshoot something, and my experience with specific technologies. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – My negotiations were through a recruiter so it's likely different for everyone. They asked what I wanted to make. I told them and it was inline with the expectations, so no negotiations. I inquired about PTO, Tri-met passes and health benefits. They all lined up with my expectations.
