    Technical Support Tier I 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 a dayinterviewed at Volt Information in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    First contact was with a recruiter (phone). He told me they really need tech support reps and that I would be a good fit given my resume. He tells me to come in and "see if I would like this job", at which point you sit with someone who has been there awhile and listen in on calls. Set up a one on one interview for a week later, but before that I had to take a 30 question test on wireless connections, tv cabling, etc. If passed, then you would meet with interviewer which I did and she gave me another "test" verbally though not as long. Got a job offer on the spot.

    Various Office Positions Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA
    Application Details

    The process took a weekinterviewed at Volt Information in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed for a specific advertised position, then was discussing placement in several other positions. I observed: 1) The one on one interview was very brief, with little attention paid to my qualifications 2) The position I was applying to was no longer available, but the recruiter told me they jest left jobs on their site for 90 days until they dropped off automatically rather than remove them 3) The recruiter called me later to offer positions that I was vastly overqualified for 4) When one short term offer actually sounded interesting I accepted it, then was called back days later to be told I was overqualified and the offer was withdrawn (try reading my resume next time). 5) It was obvious during our conversations that the recruiter simply didn't have any understanding of some job order requirements ie. didn't know the difference between a Sharepoint user and administrator.
    Conclusion: Recruiter is skating by on the fact that there are lots of competent people looking for work now and if you randomly placed someone with minimum experience in a position there is a good chance they will do well.
