- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at W. J. Deutsch (White Plains, NY) in September 2010.
Company was very professional. Executive team plays a very active role in screening process. Everyone on the Executive team was impressive. The owners are particularly impressive. Everyone asked deep and penetrating questions. You cannot bluff your way through the interview process. Self awareness and humility is key, if you cannot provide an honest self assessment of your development areas, you will flag yourself as someone who is not self-aware and someone who is unwilling to learn and improve.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day – interviewed at W. J. Deutsch in September 2010.
When I arrived there, I was on time for the interview. My interviewer had me wait an hour before I was finally told where to go to meet my interviewer, which was his office. We met for an hour and we had a very strange conversation where he talked about how great he was and what a "Golden Child" he was at his last company. I found it to be a very strange interview where he loved talking more about himself than wanting to find out more about his candidate. He further went on to talk about how he finally agreed to coming on board at the company after rejecting it multiple times--a great way to sell the company? Anyway, he was so proud of himself that I could no longer fit in the room as his opinion of himself caused an major inflation of his ego. After the interview, he asked me to find my way back to reception and said that he had to run off to another meeting. WOW I WAS GLAD TO FINALLY LEAVE!! If you ever get a call about working here, STAY AWAY! Even if you have no job--STAY AWAY! This is not a place that warrants a look and see.
