Program Coordinator Interview

Program Coordinator
Sacramento, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Volt Information in September 2011.

Interview Details – The hiring process is extremely slow for this type of position, I had to drive up to Sacramento to interview on three separate occasions due to one of the Directors "forgetting" we had an interview - not a great way to start. The interview process was extremely simple, basic questions and hypotheticals to determine if my attitude and personality would be a good fit to the office.

Interview Question – What out-of-the-box searching tools would you use to find individuals speaking native Japanese in Sacramento?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was no room for negotiation - if you're not happy with the original offer they make you, do not expect to get any more; however, they will tell you that you'll "make more" once you get hired on full time, which wasn't true either.

I applied in-person and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Volt Information in May 2008.

Interview Details – Volt recruiting called me after I submitted my resume.

Interview Question – "Tell us a little bit about yourself"   View Answer

Negotiation Details – They made it clear that this was a fixed rate that they started all employees at for this position. I didn't push it, but its possible they would have negotiated I suppose.
