    Customer Service Support Representative - Pleasanton, CA Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Pleasanton, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Pleasanton, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Sharp Electronics (US) in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Job posted November 5, 2013 - On Indeed.com (Apply Button) connected to the Corporate website - https://careers-sharpusa.icims.com. Two weeks after, I contacted the Corporate contact email and no answer. Then I contacted Corporate HR thru LinkedIn.com & contacted by phone the Corporate HR department. I got a email reply from one of the Pleasanton, CA HR Branch Manager noting that they are "still reviewing". Couple of weeks after, December now, I contacted again thru email to the Corporate HR and she found out that the local Pleasanton branch "position is not yet filled, but they are nearing a decision. They do not expect to contact any other prospective applicants at this time." Going thru the application process and waiting period to be contacted for a potential interview is frustrating. Only to hear or see in a email you won't be getting an interview. The job market is awful since the Recession.

    Interview Questions
    • Not given a chance to interview.

      "...HR contact has to manage several open jobs & has to review hundreds of applicant resumes. It is would be impossible for her to follow up with every applicant to every position. "

      Yes, I know but this is being said or mentioned every time I follow-up to find out about the status of my application and/or cover letter & resume submittal. This is disheartening. Americans want to work. Companies are not hiring enough jobs and HR and Managerial staff are not considering valid qualifications.
