    Tech Support Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Antonio, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Antonio, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Volt Information in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    It was very simple, called the recruiter, emailed a resume, came in took a test to judge my knowledge on technical stuff, toured the work place, had 2 interviews and took a drug test. Very straightforward. However there is a weed out process, if you are late to work, from break or from lunch, three times, you are fired, if you fail 2 quizzes during training (there are a total of about 30) you are fired, if you get less than a 90% on the final, you are fired.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Volt Information in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    After one phone interview, I was called in for an in person interview. It was a typical corporate interview, followed by a competency test - which for someone with as many years of experience as I have is unprofessional and insulting. It also shows the management's insecurity in their and the company's ability to make choices and decisions.

    The interview portion took maybe a grand total of an hour from start to finish.

Finally, one of the Volt staff would discuss with you whether you were interested in the position still and if you were you were given further instructions to return for drug testing and training.

    Technical Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Volt Information in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    Long, drawn out and in the end a 62 year old (me) did not get interviewed for a job in which I have nearly 30 years experience because I wasn't "technically" strong enough (by eval of resume). Local staff recognized I would be an asset and fought to hire me. Remote hiring authority would not interview, even by phone. One of his peers did, but that did no good. Started process 11/2010 and the position is still open.
    Good company, good local people, very negative mind set of remote manager (who is short term with the firm.)
    Volt is a good company to be a contractor thru and a local employee, IF you can become one.
