    Sometimes have to work on holidays get another day off instead of overtime. No advancement opportunities. In IT sometimes have to work from home in the evening.

    Procurement Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Aqua Star in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    After applying for a position that was posted on their website (without a posting date), I was notified that the job had just been offered to someone else, but that there was another position that had just been created in another department. After expressing my interest, I proceeded to the phone interview. I was then called in to interview in-person. The first part of that meeting was the administration of the Wonderlic IQ test. Then I met with the director and vice president of the division, separately. I was called in once more for what I thought was the final round of interviews, but was actually just to meet the CEO and get his approval.

    During the process, I occasionally felt some disconnect with the various people I met- there wasn't always a great chemistry, but I did eventually get the offer. Perhaps I was not the first choice, but I would recommend others to not let an awkward feeling translate to rejection.

    The benefits package at Aqua Star is great- medical, dental, health stipend, commuter stipend, etc. Two weeks of vacation, sick days, and personal days plus all the standard holidays.
