    Interview

    The interview process was quite long (over 2 months), and consisted of multiple phases. Overall, though, everyone was very professional throughout the process. My only complaint is the length of time invested for a non-managerial position.

    Vendor Relationship Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at ACT (Iowa City, IA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    WARNING: Company ghosts candidates.

    Unequivocally the most unprofessional interviewing experience of my career.

    A recruiter located my resume off Dice, and said he needed several references and a brief essay why I was the best fit for the role before even talking to the hiring manager. After a few days, was asked to meet the hiring manager via videoconference. In between the initial discussion and the scheduled meeting, the scope of the role had changed at least twice.

    At the scheduled time and day, nobody was on the videoconference. After an hour, it was decided to postpone to the next day (because they "wanted to make a decision" quickly). Next day, same thing...until my cell phone rang with the number of the hiring manager. The actual conversation was about 30 minutes, and was pretty straightforward and to the point. Was told that they were shortlisting candidates by the end of the week.

    The week ended, and not a word. I followed up the next week, and was advised the decision had been postponed until the following week. After two weeks with no word, reached out to the recruiter, who conveniently "had just been told" that they were only pursuing local candidates at this time.

    District Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at ACT (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Was recommended to apply for the position by the former district manager. Did two phone interviews - one with talent acquisition and one with hiring manager. Was told I should hear something within a week and loved everything I had to say. Needless to say two months later no response from anyone. Horrible communication and not worth the effort that went into me writing cover letter, resume, etc. Really disappointing

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ACT (Iowa City, IA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process is very formal with not a lot of experience required. They are just looking for people who will show up to work every day. As long as you are a down to earth person, you will be fine to get hired as a temp worker here.

    Content Specialist Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ACT.

    Interview

    For a candidate seeking a non-leadership position, there were far too many hoops to jump through. A phone interview, a test, a work-product assignment test, then another phone interview, then over 3 hours of in-person interviews with seven people in four different rooms. The interviewers had competing agendas and did not seem very clear on what skill set they wanted. The definition of the position changed throughout the process. In the end, I did not get an offer, but I did get a curt formulaic e-mail for all of my time. I regretted applying, not because I did not get an offer, but because I let my time be wasted by an organization that was already showing signs of inefficiency and in-fighting to an outsider. The vetting process was overkill.
