    Quality Control Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Houston, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at HCSS in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I found the job listing on Craigslist and Reddit. They held two open houses where potential candidates got to take the tour of the company, learn more about them, what they do and the opportunities available. I attended one of them and something was just off about the work atmosphere. It's as if they tried very hard to imitate Google's office experience and failed miserably at it. Nonetheless, I still applied for the position and had to take a math test online, which was very easy.

    I got a phone call almost a month later asking more about my resume, my skills and if I am still looking for a job. Then they scheduled me to a peer interview the following week.

    At the peer interview, I was given a test and about 20 minutes to finish it. The test was to find and write down what I think are bugs on a particular piece of the software. After that, I had a 2-on-1 interview for about 45 minutes. The questions were very generic ones (what are your strengths?weakness?why quality control?why HCSS?) and after that, I had an another interview with the recruiting manager who asked me the same questions again.

    At the conclusion of that interview, the recruiting manager told me that I should be hearing back from him within a week, either via email or phone call about the next step which is a formal interview with the CEO and other VPs. I was also asked if I would be interested in doing tech support which I respectfully declined.

    Before I left, I had to do that same "challenging" math test again and this time on paper to verify that it was indeed me who took it online.

    I never received a phone call or email from them.
