    Recruiter Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AOL (New York, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    They're using an agency to recruit for this role. The crazy thing is the the page I applied to online looked exactly as if I was applying directly through the company career page. I only found out it was an agency when I was contacted for an interview. You have to have phone interviews w/ 2 people at the agency (Recruiter and Account Mgr) before it's even decided whether or not you will actually speak with the someone at AOL. On top of that the Recruiter had to reschedule me with the Account Mgr several times because she was never available. For a company of its size and brand recognition you would think they would want to keep recruitment for HR roles in-house, since only they know the culture and team. Or have a better grasp on the practices of their recruitment partners. As a recruiter myself the initial process seems tedious to me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AOL (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Now, AOL is a great company-I'll start by saying that. They are really trying to create their presence in both the media and tech spaces. They are obsessed with their 'culture' and adding people in that fit said culture. The office is gorgeous and the staff seems to be composed of young and interesting. Now that the niceties are out of the way...

    There are three rounds: a phone screening, another phone screening and then a super-day (and maybe more after that, didn't get further in the process). Throughout the process, I read up on how scattered the process could be but I figured maybe it would be different for me? On the day of my super-day I was scheduled for a combo of both phone interviews and in person ones at their HQ. Out of the total of 6 I was scheduled for, I only did 2. After all of the preparation on my end, it turns out the Sr. Manager I was scheduled to talk to needed to reschedule twice that morning due to 'traffic' and then while on sight my second interview was cut short due to an internal emergency. I mean, mid sentence my interviewer was called outside, had a tensed conversation and then came in and rushed me out. During the chaos she said she would reschedule the remaining four interviews but a week later I found out that they were 'going in a different direction'. Why make me go through all of this preparation and multiple interviews only to cancel more than half of them the day of?

    The entire process left me confused. There is minimal contact from their end on the status of your application to begin with and they are truly a mess when it comes to scheduling interviews.
