- Application Details
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a day – interviewed at On-Site.com in March 2013.Interview Details
The interview was arranged by an area staffing agency. They told me that they were highly confident I would get the position, due to my past experience.
I felt everything was going great while I was interviewed by HR personnel. I was asked questions about my past experience, my CS style, how I handle irate callers, previous employers' talk times and metrics, etc.; the second part was the CEO interview.
His first question was if I rented or owned my home. A renter, he seemed surprised at the name of my apartment complex and made a comment that residents needed to have "a lot of disposable income" to live there. Personally, this part of the interview process was awkward and irrelevant.
He asked me if I had interviewed for any other companies in Silicon Valley. Due to a non-disclosure agreement, I couldn't say who. Visibly annoyed and refusing to move on, he spent a good chunk of time asking probing questions about the company, instead of continuing the interview.
He asked what highways I took to get there from my apartment.; the ensuing conversation was not relevant to my interview.
A last-ditch effort to impress, I mentioned how 50% of the U.S.'s population lives within 500 miles of Akron, OH, to which he stated he was going to Google, ASAP. He then handed me a stack of papers to fill out and left, without describing who or what was next in the process. I sat in the room for about 30 minutes until a man came and said he was told to take me back to the receptionist's area.
I sat there for yet another 15 minutes, until the CEO happened to come and see me there. He actually stated, "You're still here? I told them to tell you to leave." He then personally signed me out, but not before mentioning that the population was 45%, not 50. And I left the premises.Interview Questions
