    Corporate Communications Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wood Dale, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at AAR (Wood Dale, IL) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Initially had a call with HR which was great. They told me how great my qualifications for the position were and rushed me in for an in-person interview. The interview in the office was a completely different experience. I interviewed with two of the lead team members and the VP of HR. First, I waited for nearly 15 minutes in a conference room alone until someone finally came in. When the interview started, I was drilled about my resume. It wasn’t a “tell us about yourself or what you bring to the table” kind of interview. Those interviewing me showed little interest in my qualifications and myself as an individual. I was given a writing exercise for a mock press release, which I was given 25 minutes to complete. Overall, I think department members need better training when it comes to conducting an interview.

    Human Resources Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wood Dale, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at AAR (Wood Dale, IL).

    Interview

    I applied online and was quickly e-mailed back to set up a phone call. The phone call was very quick, but went well as I was invited for an in person the following week. I went in and genuinely thought that the interview went well. It was 30 minutes each with the VP of HR, the HR manager, and the recruiter. They did not do any personality based questions, but rather just talked briefly about my experience and asked me to fill at least 1/3 of the 30 min with questions. I was extremely disappointed with the experience because I was told by the recruiter that I had the best resume and that he really liked me (and had told the VP that as well). He told me that he would be getting back quickly as they are looking to fill the position asap, but I never got anything back. After e-mailing the check-in, I really was just left out to dry. I thought--especially after all of the great comments given to me by the recruiter, that I at least deserved a call to tell me I didn't get it.
