Recruiting Coordinator Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ZocDoc (New York, NY) in May 2015.
I was contacted via linked by them to come in and interview. At the time i was very happy at my job and did not respond, months later when that changed i reached out and was asked to come in the following week. Prior to my first interview i had a brief phone call that was easy. My first interview i met with 3 people, it ran a bit longer then expected but was good. I was told 3 business days later to come in for a meeting with 2 more people who were senior. I was asked the exact same questions from all of the people and it become monotonous. Regardless i stayed cheery and replied. The final 2 people were low energy and had a terrible vibe to begin with. After 5 business days i was told i did not get the position.

I applied online. I interviewed at ZocDoc in May 2015.
It was supposed to be the main, senior recruiter who initially reached out to me via email, who seemed friendly from his emails. Instead, I got two totally different guys because the main recruiter was sick; coincidentally, my interview was set for the day after Cinco de Mayo... The interview was strange, it was someone currently in the RC role for which I was interviewing and an actual Recruiter. They started the whole thing off very cold, not a whole lot of pleasantries. They jumped straight into telling me about themselves. This to me was just super bizarre. I have a recruiting background, and I would never, ever unless asked begin a call with a mini novel about myself. Perhaps the company I worked for, but not about myself. In addition, the whole call felt like a training call/practice for the one RC guy to potential move into an actual recruitment role. They both jumped around between who was asking questions, and it never once felt like my answers were being absorbed and weighed; it was almost as if they never mattered to begin with, which was very frustrating. In addition to my comments below about their interview questions/methods, these two guys made absolutely no attempt to connect with me. None! They solely wanted to get off the phone. As mentioned before, the whole call was very strange. That's my word for it. I read up so much on ZocDoc that I could not wait to talk to this recruiter because I truly wanted to work for this company! I still think what ZocDoc is doing is phenomenal, but for a company so young that parades the "culture, culture, culture" card, they are doing rather poorly in whose hands they're putting this task.
- -I've already done the full, 360 recruitment role, so this would not have been a step forwards for me career-wise, but I applied fully knowing this willing/wanting to do what the role entailed, so when I got asked "why would you want to take a step backwards?" or "are you sure you want to be doing this dirty work?"... I get it, you're qualifying me, but I'm not an idiot. It just further reiterated to me that they had already decided on my candidacy before even talking to me. (This is the perfect description of a dumb recruiter). -How do you stay organized? -How do you prioritize your time? -The two guys I talked to, and especially the one RC practicing, did not know how to ask questions appropriately to get concrete, solid answers. This comes with practice, so I understand, but do you see how easily/quickly I phrased these questions above? This is not how they were asked. They were asked in a wordy, lengthy manner and phrased in multiple, various ways to where I had to interpret what exactly they were trying to ask. This is super frustrating for any interviewee because then your questions do not make sense and confuse the person in which you're interviewing; hence, resulting in confusing, round-about answers. Answer Question
Recruiting Coordinator InterviewNo Offer
I was first contacted via phone for an initial screening. They were extremely quick in communicating the next steps and moving me on to the next round for an in person interview. You are brought to a small room, and wait for your first interview. I had a total of 4 interviews and they all asked very similar questions. Before the interview even begins, they ask YOU to ask them any questions.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ZocDoc (New York, NY) in May 2014.
I wasn't contacted until almost 3 months after submitting my application, when I was emailed and asked about my availability for a phone screening, which we did the following week. I was immediately asked to send my availability for an in-person interview and scheduled that for early the next week. After being told I would meet with 2 people in fairly quick succession, it ended up being 4 people; two back to back 30 minute interviews, each with 2 people. Everything ran like clockwork. The next day, I was contacted and asked to come in for a final interview with higher ups. Again, I ended up meeting with more people than expected - this time 4 instead of 3, and all individually. A lot of the questions were really repetitive by this point, and the last person I was set to meet ran almost 30 minutes late. I'm not sure why the same thing couldn't have been accomplished by a panel interview. All in all, the questions weren't difficult. Especially after hearing the same questions a few times, I had my answers down pat. Everyone was very friendly and approachable, the scheduling process was easy, and I really appreciated how communicative everyone was throughout the process. I was never left hanging or wondering what the next step was or whether I was still being considered, and it was refreshing after a year of job searching and oftentimes never hearing anything at all after an interview.
