    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Alexander Mann Solutions (Cleveland, OH) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Received a message on LinkedIn, I responded back fast and the girl was very happy about it. Had a phone interview a few hours later. Got invited to a in-person interview. Went downtown and paid for parking to the interview, (unemployed so had to ask for money from family) could not get into the door so I waited for someone to let me in. When I got there there was no one to greet or help so I had to find someone. Waited some more then interviewed with the HR, that went very well, then interviewed with another lady, that went well as well. Had to jump and do a random event role playing with excel for 30 minutes, didn't receive much help. Then onto a role playing with a phone call with limited information. There were 5 people in the room while this was going on and they were taking notes, that's what made me choke a bit. Then an excel role play, which only took me 5 minutes. I thought everything went well but I never heard back from them. If they based my whole interview only a the phone role play then there is something wrong with that company.

    Recruiting Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Met at a Career Fair last year and loved talking to the organization so went back today to check in. Women I talked to were catty, immature and were just reciting something they had been taught. They acted as if I was bothering them by coming up to share my interest in the organization. The team there today was much more junior than the team last year

    Lead Sourcing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Alexander Mann Solutions (Cleveland, OH) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Contacted me online for the position. Completed one hour long phone screen, one 30 min interview, 1 hour long presentation. One two and half hour IV with four people.
    I had a perplexed look on my face when the head honcho during the interview asked me what I knew about "AMS"? Due to me being on an Analytics position interview I thought they were referring to an Applicant Tracking System. Aparantly AMS is an acronym for Alexander Mann Solutions. Who would know that unless they were an internal employee? Unfortunately the look of judgement and contempt on the interviewers face was enough to know the interview was dead in the water.
     What happened was I was told I was not strong enough for the position and they would like to know if I would be interested in a "standardized recruiter position"? Mind you I would have had to interview all over again for this role. If an organization is unable to decipher from: an hour long phone screen, 30 minutes with the hiring manager over the phone, an hour long PowerPoint presentation for 3 people, and a 2 1/2 hour long interview with 4 people the skill set of the individual and their follow through, why would I bother ever considering any position within that company. Hindsight being 20/20 the entire experience seemed like a bait and switch to get me in the door, knowing full well that the position was for a standardized recruiter.
    Imagine someone saying "we don't think your enough of a qualified candidate for this position. But we would like to consider you another position, approximately three tiers below what you interviewed for over the past month. Only to add insult to injury by saying I will need to take time out of my schedule again to meet the decision makers. Incredible the lack of respect and consciousness people have for others time. Awful awful awful experience, save yourself the PTO, energy, and time...just look for an internal position.

    Resource Specialist AKA Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Alexander Mann Solutions (Cleveland, OH) in May 2016.

    Interview

    After a simple resume upload to their site, contacted by a coordinator for screening, then HR partner. Next the hiring manager/immediate supervisor interview, and lastly some future colleagues for "culture fit/team blend" though they work remotely. All these conversations were by phone even though the job was local and the hiring manager was on-site local, and they were all spread 1-2 weeks apart making this a 2 month ordeal.

    Principal Consultant Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Alexander Mann Solutions (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I was quite impressed with the interview process. The process began on a Tuesday with a Recruiter. On Wednesday, I met with Recruiting Business Partner and by Friday I met with the Hiring Manager. The following week, I spoke with 2 members of my potential team. The offer came exactly 2 weeks from my initial contact with the recruiter. The background process with Sterling Backcheck took 2 weeks. The company does a credit check, drug screening, employment verification, and criminal background.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I really did not need to negotiate since they asked my salary requirements prior to offer.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Alexander Mann Solutions (San Jose, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Very, very long but everyone I meet with was smart, attentive and asked great questions. More a professional dialog than an interview. Met with a wide-range of people and the client as well. Over the phone, in person, and via Skype due to the global team. The recruiter kept me apprised every step of the way.
