    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Advantage Resourcing (Charlotte, NC) in January 2009.

    Interview

    My initial hiring process was o.k. I was recruited by a former manager and then he was downsized. I remained longer than he did. Would not recommend the organization, they do not value top talent and do not try to retain good employees. High turnover

    Account Executive Interview

    Interview

    Recruiter called & emailed me to interview. Scheduled interview with local manager who was not there at the prearranged time due to a family emergency but no one called to reschedule prior to my arrival. The recruiter emailed me to see how the interview went. I advised that it was cancelled after my arrival. Another interview was lined up. Meeting went very well and he said he wanted me to come in board. Follow up meeting to complete online assessments. Interview scheduled with Regional Manager. Interview went very well and she appeared to be impressed with my experience and skills. I was asked to do some homework which I did and sent promptly. I was asked for references which I provided. I was advised at the end of the interview that my assessments would be reviewed and she would follow up at the beginning of the next week. No follow up on her part so I made the follow up call. She asked if the local manager called me and I said no. She replied that he was supposed to and that they decided to go a different direction. No further explanation provided.

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baton Rouge, LA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Advantage Resourcing (Baton Rouge, LA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed with corporate recruiter over the phone, in person with the Branch Manager, and then a third interview with the area director in person. They checked my references and offered me the position verbally. Evidently the area director did not like me, she informed the Branch Manager he would not be able to hire me after he had offered the position. She left it up to him for what to tell me as the reason for their changing their minds, so he told me the truth. Stay away from this petty unprofessional company!

    Interview Questions

    • The area director kept asking me why my previous marketing experience made me a fit as an Account Executive, but no matter the answer she asked the question again in a different way.   1 Answer

    Account Management Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Advantage Resourcing (Houston, TX) in December 2014.

    Interview

    The process was not what was promised to me. I was hired December 5, 2014. Was informed by March 1 I would be promoted to Account Management once I got acclimated with the different systems I has to use for the position which I was acclimated with the systems within two months. They gave the position to someone with no experience. It was a discrimination matter I strongly believe.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Shreveport, LA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Advantage Resourcing (Shreveport, LA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    The people there are very friendly. They are not intimidating at all. They are genuinely interested in helping you meet your career goals, and are very good at following through with assistance if you ever have any trouble at a placed assignment. A few of the newer account executives (as they are called) may seem a little formal at first, but once they talk to you in the interview and find out what kind of person you are, they will adjust their behavior accordingly.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question asked was one that is asked commonly. They want to know what your strengths and weaknesses are. Be prepared to answer more creatively than saying "my biggest weakness is that I work too hard" or any variation of that. As a staffing firm, they hear that one a lot, and it won't get you very far.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There is not always a lot of negotiation room, as the company they are hiring you to work for may have a set budget. But if you are a hard worker, they excel at getting you regular raises (I got one after 90 days).

    The people were super unfriendly and I strongly urge anyone to stay away from this place. You make nothing and give everything. Including your heart and soul. I would recommend any other staffing agency but this one.
