    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at American Traffic Solutions.

    Interview Details

    A bit convoluted; towards the end, I was about ready to say I was no longer interested. In fact, I told the department head, "Is THIS how it's going to be once I get hired?" The recruiter found me on LinkedIn and really sold me on the company, as I wasn't interested. (I'm glad he did!) If memory serves...I went through a phone interview; I was asked to come in for an interview with my direct manager; I was asked to come back in for an interview with my direct manager and his/her manager (the department head) and to take a little writing test; I was asked to come back in for an interview with my direct manager and one of the senior executives, who demanded I provide another writing example. Whew! Then, there was the background check and drug test.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were typical and nothing seemed difficult or unexpected. Well, except for having to provide an example of my writing. That was unexpected and more than annoying, as I'd already gone through the writing test and had the years of experience and references to prove I was "the real deal." It just seemed a bit over the top and as though the senior executive wanted to show me, my direct manager, and his/her manager who was the boss. The process bordered on "dealth by interview," with just one more hoop to jump through over and over. I am glad I stuck with it, as I very much like my work and team. But it did start to make me think the company was too disorganized, didn't know what they wanted, and didn't know quality when they saw it. My manager and his/her manager to this day insist it was unusual and took them by surprise, so I don't know that everyone should expect so much running about.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The recruiter handled all interfacing, from scheduling the interviews to making the offer. He had indicated the salary range before I accepted the first interview and then he made the offer at the top of the range. I countered for more, saying I would not require insurance and, therefore, would cost the company less. (All true!) He said he'd have to get back to me, at which time he agreed to my counter offer. He was always easy to reach, quick to return phone calls, and super professional.
