    Front End Web Developer Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Adecco (Melville, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The initial interview was unique to me - I was asked questions via a web application that was recording me, speaking the answers, via my computer's webcam. It was almost like Skyping with myself -- I was given a question, 30 seconds to 1 minute to think and another minute to speak the answer, which is when it would be recording. I found this to be incredibly awkward but upon coming in for the second in-person interview they clarified their reasoning for what they were really looking for. These were very general, preliminary tech questions.

    I was interviewed by the manager shortly, he asked general career questions about what my specialties are and what I expect out of Adecco. I then spoke to members of the team I would be working with, who asked more technical questions. They started with a few questions, some multiple choice, some questions that warranted explaining how I got to the solution. This included white boarding, showing how I would answer certain issues in terms of development (with how to do basic things, how I work with certain technologies).

     They then left me in the room for an hour with a mockup image and said to mark it up the best I could using Bootstrap. I completed the task and re-created the mockup into markup that they then reviewed with more members of the team, each going around giving their input.

    I loved this process and think it works very well for all kinds of interviewers and interviewees.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Adecco.

    Interview

    The interview was great overall. Everybody was nice and friendly and didn't went harsh on me. Most of the questions were behavioral. The technical questions wee extremely easy maybe because my job is an entry level job. And right after the interview the recruiter called me telling me they really liked me and want to hire me. I think it's a pretty easy interview.

    Recruiter Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Adecco in June 2015.

    Interview

    Was referred to the company by a current employee. Discussed the position on the phone and then was set up for an interview with the Area Director. This was really not an interview but more of a sales pitch on the position and working for Adecco. Multiple times the director asked me "Have I sold you on Adecco yet? What else do you need to hear?" After the interview I was extended an offer and had to take multiple assessment tests. They were primarily personality assessments but also included quite a bit of math and vocabulary.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was not a lot of room for negotiation, we had already discussed salary before the interview and what was needed.

    Project Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portsmouth, NH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Adecco (Portsmouth, NH) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process took about 2 weeks. It was very fast paced. I didn't have direct industry experience and that was a must have for the client. I was not called directly with a decision as promised in a timely manner. That was unprofessional. I received a random email from a contact that I was not familiar with weeks later. If I was granted a personalized call or email explaining that they decided on another resource, my overall experience would have been much better.
