    Graduate Electrical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Interview

    Friendly and focused on hard skills. They took me on a tour of the facilities before a sit-down interview. The questions were based primarily around my CV and areas of interest, the interviewer focussed a lot on particular classes I had taken at university and quizzed me on how they were relevant to the job applied for.

    Interview

    This company uses a recruiter who screens too narrowly and does not delve into real world experiences provided in resume and personal business history. I couldn't even get the recruiter to consider meeting with me.

    Rental Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New Iberia, LA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Through a staffing company in Louisiana.. The interview was fine, they all were nice.
    I got "hired" started "working" 1 week later... "Training" lasted forever. We were left alone in a room by ourselves for 2 days not knowing what to do... People are rude except a few very sweet women. Management is the worst Ive ever seen in my life. How did they get to those positions. No communication rude and egocentric... Bunch of crazy women. Without a valid reason i got let go after 7 days in the actual job after having wasted over 8 weeks in Training.

    If I could give this company a -10 I would glady do it.

    DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME with these jerks.

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Aggreko in July 2011.

    Interview

    A fractured disorganized process at best, I am not sure that these people know what they are doing.

    After an initial contact from their recruiter I didn't hear from them again in over 6 weeks

    After a speaking with two different in-house recruiters I moved to a phone interview with the hiring manager, then to a face to face with the hiring manager and finally an face to face with the hiring manager his regional manager. At each interview I was literally only given a very short time, sometimes only hours to make it to the interview including one out of town trip.

    These people clearly don't have any respect for a person's time and expect you to be at their beck and call and be ready to scramble at their whim..regardless of your current situation (fully employed. They dug and dug for industry insights, which I had no problem sharing with them, but they also wanted me to give them direct contacts and phone numbers, which I would not commit to, since I sensed that they only wanted names and companies and once they had them I wouldn't be so interesting to them.
