Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Advantage Solutions in April 2017.

Interview

For the initial interview I was called and asked a few questions about how I handled certain situations in the past, can you give an example of this-or-that. A couple of the questions took me back because i hadn't been asked them before and didn't know how to answer it, one of the questions wasn't very clear and though i asked for clarification, i was still a bit confused.

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Advantage Solutions in September 2011.

    Interview

    Was basically asked why I thought I could do the job, since it wasn't " rocket science"....really was not an interview. Was more of a meet and greet and was offered the job on the spot. Brought my resume, but they didn't even bother to review it.
