- Application Details
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days – interviewed at New Horizons Computer Learning Centers in October 2014.Interview Details
I had been actively applying for jobs in the IT department for a couple weeks. One day I received a phone call from a hiring agent from New Horizons (in South Florida) and he begins describing all the wonderful benefits I would be eligible for if I were to get "Hired". The man sounded semi-unprofessional and was going through the offer carelessly.
He said the company had a program where I were to be working and could be taking certification programs during my employment that would make me "more marketable" for prospective companies. He started by saying they are the leading partners with microsoft, cisco, etc. At the end of the position pitch he tells me if I am available for an interview the following day and to bring my resume. Blinded by all the wonderful promises I quickly accepted because hey I have nothing to lose.
I was wrong. He called me serval times the following day (interview day) to confirm that I am coming for the interview - almost sounding desperate. This made me ask him "what exactly is the position I will be applying for?" He responded "we will be discussing possible help desk employment and your future with our certifications program", something along those lines.
Upon arrival he greets me at the door and asks me to sign in for the "interview"; the sign in sheet clearly had "orientation" written at the top. I immediately knew it was a farce - serval other "applicants" (about 4) arrived and we were placed into a presentation room. Before the presentation started we were given a handout with all the programs offered with the company and a 25 questionnaire related to computers, Os's, troubleshooting, and networking, standard mainly with a couple of more complex questions.
After about 20 mins time to complete the quiz, the workforce coordinator for the tri-county area began the presentation/speech about the companies history and offerings. Basically giving all these wonderful examples of previous "clients" that have joined New Horizons and have such a high success rate of hiring, and that if I were to become a client then I would have x times better chances than others.
NOTHING about a job position was described. The presentation was about 45 minutes in where I realized it was a COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME and literally walked out. Useless information was given basically giving all the scenarios where we would be eligible for free certification courses.
Long story short - if New Horizons calls you with a "job" offering, make it 100% clear that you are only interested in working and not looking to grow your experience. I felt as if I was SCAMMED because there really was no immediate job offering - just a company trying to make money off determined and serious applications.Interview Questions
