Recruiter Interview

Recruiter
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Workbridge Associates.

Interview Details – I first applied online and received a phone call within a week of sending in my application. I then went into the office where I had the typical run down of what the job was and the compensation talk. After I was asked to call the next day at 10am (and when they say 10am they mean it RIGHT on the dot) where I was asked to return for a panel presentation with three Practice Managers. Afterwards you will return to a 1:1 setting where the different practice managers will ask you general questions. Overall, they did not seem very organized.

Interview Question – They are mostly sales questions and are working to get you to argue back. It was relatively uncomfortable because in most interview settings you don't want to seem rude, but it is apparently what they are looking for in order to see how thick your skin is.

Most of the questions are extremely repetitive (ex. why do you want to go into sales? what goals do you have should you receive this job? etc)

You Have A College Degree? Decent Looking? You Will Probably Get Hired Interview

You Have A College Degree? Decent Looking? You Will Probably Get Hired
Philadelphia, PA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Workbridge Associates in January 2012.

Interview Details – Very normal interview, nothing that out of ordinary. Just research "typical interview questions" and you will be prepared. Usually interviewed first over the phone, then in person, then possibly and 2nd interview. You will be interviewed by a Team Lead, then the Office Manager (bigger boss). Or both on the same day. They will be very friendly, because they usually need people. If you really need a job, I suggest being eloquent, speak clearly and confident! They are not interested in shy people because it IS sales! No matter how much they tell you how amazing this job is, read the reviews on this site to get a better overview of what the job actually entails. They will ask what you can bring to the "team/office". They will ask about your college experience. They will want to know why you want to work there. May ask how you would handle a difficult situation. They are really looking for someone personable... someone they could go to Happy Hour with but who will also hopefully stick around and not mind working late.

Interview Question – Always be prepared for a question along the lines of.... "How would you handle an issue you were having with your boss/supervisor"? or "How do you handle difficult situations?"   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. They offer $30K salary (not hourly!), so if you work 40hrs or 55 hrs a week your pay is the same. It is NOT commission if you make a sale/place someone, after a certain amount of placements/deals you earn raises. You get health insurance within 90 days of full-time employment.

Technical Recruiter Interview

Technical Recruiter
Philadelphia, PA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Workbridge Associates in February 2014.

Interview Details – 1st Interview: phone screen; 15-30 minutes, be able to talk about what's on your resume and your goals, why you applied or why you think your skills would fit the position

2nd Interview: in-person; 60-90 minutes, after each half hour a different & higher ranked employee would conduct the interview, they start by selling you on the company/job then it gets more intense, the questions weren't too difficult but you can tell they're trying to get a sense of who you are/your personality because it's extremely important for this specific role--not everyone is cut out for a career in sales which is exactly what it is

3rd Interview: final presentation; 30-45 minutes, prompted with info sheet about services they offer a day or two beforehand, no trickery, present as if you're representing the company to a potential client, drilled with questions to a panel of at least three employees, will also ask follow-up questions so you must be able to reference the info sheet with ease--no need to remember the info word-for-word but you must have a good sense of what they have to offer clients and their competitive advantage in the market

Interview Questions

  • I was asked about other jobs that I was interviewing for...?   View Answer
  • Several questions about how serious you were about wanting the job... made it seem like they have a problem with employee retention?   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Was offered the position, needed time before making decision but was told I had to take it or leave it. I probably would have accepted but I went with my gut feeling!

IT Recruiter Interview

IT Recruiter

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Workbridge Associates.

Interview Details – Applied through Craigslist for the position, received a call from the Division Manager. After the phone interview I met with the DM's and RD for the offices of both Workbridge and Jobspring. These interviews seemed a little unplanned and the questions I was asked seemed irrelevant to a recruiting position, but definitely geared toward entry level sales/behavioral based questions.

Interview Question – One of the people I met with really wanted to talk about Greek life at their college campus, which was odd because I was not in a fraternity or sorority in school.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation they offer a base salary (30k) with a path to raises and perks based on your placements.
