    Implementation Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Kenexa.

    Interview Details

    My resume was mined off Monster so I received a phone screen call from a recruiter. I was then advanced to the VP of Client Services for a phone interview. I then met with the department manager and was also provided a co-worker's contact information for a peer review. After that, I was flown out to Boston to meet other division managers and had lunch with the department manager who I would be reporting to. The experience was positive and I was definitely "sold" the company and culture while I was there. "Webhire" had just been acquired by Kenexa and so the team that interviewed me was from the original Webhire crew. My interview process was more indicative of how Webhire managed it and not Kenexa so there was some confusion about next steps once I was made an offer. It was AFTER I was hired that they had me complete a behavioral assessment (good thing I was a good fit for the position!). I'm not sure if they still administer these assessments, but don't be surprised if you're required to complete one. The cool thing was that when I went to Lincoln, NE for my company orientation, I got to meet with one of Kenexa's staff PhD's to review my behavioral assessment--one of the highlights of my trip. Orientation seemed like a waste of time as there was a lot of information related to working in the office (dress code, etc), although I was a virtual employee.

    Negotiation Details
    I had also received another offer from a local company on the same day. Both offers were comparable so there was no need to negotiate. The one thing I requested was more vacation time as I was giving up 4 weeks from my current job, and the offer only included 2 weeks and was denied any increase (I requested 3 weeks). I accepted the offer anyway.
