    Talent Acquisition Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Acosta (New York, NY).

    Interview

    A friend got me hired, and then I got my friends hired. Informal. Still waiting on the promises that were made that we were going 100% remote like majority of the organization. Still waiting on my own team as promised. Still doing whatever we want to do while others lose their jobs because of who we know. I'm fed up myself and I'm one of the ones who "have it made." If you are hard up and need a check this place is for you interview! But if you value yourself, and your next move DON'T FALL FOR THE HYPE. We'll all be resigning soon as we get a solid offer anyways!

    Operations Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Jacksonville, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Acosta (Jacksonville, FL) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Took 3 weeks to complete including phone and face-to-face interviews. Fairly simple process but in hindsight I should've picked up on a few signs.

    **Phone interview was pretty general questions and mostly the recruiter selling the job to me. At the end of the phone interview, the recruiter advised me of the pay and hours. I declined because of both. We ended the call and i thought that was the end of that.
    **3 days later to my surprise the recruiter called me back to advise she spoke with the hiring manager and they would be flexible with the hours and pay if i still wanted to move forward. I was stoked and in need of a job, so I happily agreed to move forward with an interview.
    **Face-to-face interview with hiring manager was pretty standard questions - strengths/weaknesses, difficult situations etc. Interview ended with a tour of the office and warehouse.
    **Recruiter offered me the job with negotiated pay/hours the following week - I accepted

    ***************************************************
    Hindsight:

    **The job ended up being NOTHING as it was described and the environment was terrible. I felt lied to, swindled and stuck
    **I should've known when the recruiter called me back AFTER i declined the hours/pay that something wasn't right. They were just desperate to fill the role and needed bodies in place.
    **If it's too good to be - don't trust it
