    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 months - interviewed at American Staffing Association in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    This was by far the most intense interview process I have ever experienced. I went through a staffing agency (which is how many people at ASA are hired). The process began with a screening with the staffing agency; mostly basic personality and skills questions. I was then given a writing test to complete. The test consisted of a few paragraphs that needed to be edited, for spelling, grammar, punctuation and content. Once the test was sent back to ASA, they choose whether or not they would like to continue the process. A lot of credence is put on the satisfactory completion of this writing test. I got through that part of the process and was then granted a half hour phone interview with the hiring manager. This wasn't so bad and only consisted of some basic skills and experience questions, really just trying to get a feel for where you have been up until now. From there, I was granted an in-person interview with only the hiring manager. This interview lasted a solid hour and a half and went well enough for me to proceed onto the next step in the process. Again, this interview was pretty standard with questions on my experience, skills, how I would handle certain situations, etc. Then came the "personality test", which was a combination of "which describes you best" questions, followed by what appeared to be IQ type questions. The IQ type questions were about patterns and next steps, word correlations, and some rather difficult math-word problems. Not easy and from what I have heard many people do not get past this phase. I was one of the "lucky" ones, ha. I then was asked to provide my references, of which I had four people for them to call upon. At this point, I thought I had the job in the bag. Boy, was I wrong. I was then asked to come in for two hours to meet with the CEO and two other executives. I was in the office for four hours. After spending an hour and forty minutes with the CEO, and two very positive meetings with the other two execs, I was ultimately told that I had answered one question not to the liking of the CEO and did not get the job.

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the questions with the CEO were intrusive and personal. My favorite: "What's the relationship like with your siblings?"   View Answer
