    Good employee retention and favorable total compensation. In general employees act as good teammates and the business is efficiently run.


    Lack of growth and new opportunities. Very risk adverse and many times backwards and stubborn in its approach. the company is comfortable and good at what it does, but has trouble with new ideas and expansion.

    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at GATX (Chicago, IL).


    I interviewed for a Recruiter position that had been posted for quite some time. The initial phone screen with was actually nice, personable and scheduled a time to meet. The interview started off fine, but my interviewer's attitude changed after I answered a question that apparently wasn’t satisfactory to her liking and then the interview became uncomfortable. So unpleasant that I almost stopped in the middle to tell say I wasn’t interested. I’m able to handle rough interviews and challenging questions, but my interviewer's attitude was rude and found it to be quite unprofessional. Needless, I had no interest working there afterwards and did not care to follow up.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions weren't difficult, but the negative tone made it uncomfortable and body language made it difficult to sit there any longer than I had to.   Answer Question
