    Technical Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Milwaukee, WI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Brooksource (Milwaukee, WI) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I cannot begin to explain how positive the interview experience I had with Brooksource was. The process was so smooth and the interviewers were helpful and friendly.

    My interview process began with someone from the company reaching out to me on LinkedIn informing me of the Brooksource Company and where to apply. From there, I had an on campus information session and first round interview. It is so nice that Brooksource travels to campuses around the country. It really makes getting the ball rolling easy. From there, I advanced to a second round interview which was held at the location I was interested in working for (that was Milwaukee for me, but they have offices all over). To say I felt welcome when I walked through the doors was an understatement. Every single employee got out of their desks to meet me and introduce themselves. The second round interview definitely asked some tough questions, but they were necessary to ensure that I was the right fit for Brooksource and that Brooksource was the right fit for me.

    My interview process with Brooksource was easily the best I have ever had. Looking for a full-time job post graduation is a daunting, overwhelming and scary task. Brooksource went above and beyond to answer my questions and make the whole process less stressful.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Brooksource (Indianapolis, IN) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I attended my school's career fair and was later contacted by a recruiter to schedule an on-campus interview. The interview only lasted about 20 minutes and was very conversational and relaxed. I was contacted by the same recruiter less than a week later to schedule an interview at the Indianapolis office and I will be going there in a couple weeks.

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Phila, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Brooksource (Phila, PA) in April 2018.

    Interview

    There was a phone interview first which was basically asking what I knew about the company and about what it does. Then there was a second in-person interview that lasted about an hour. The second interview asked a lot of similar questions as the first (i.e. what do you know about Brooksource? Why are you interested in working at Brooksource?) but also the second interview was mostly about getting to know you to see if you'd fit well with the team dynamics. The team is already pretty tight so it is crucial that the intern is compatible and able to function with the rest of the team.

    They want someone organized, positive/happy, fast learner, easy going, helpful, and considerate.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself? Where are you from? Why are you at the university you're at? Are you an early riser or night owl? What can you tell me about the company? How do you stay positive? What classes are you taking right now? How does your major prepare you for this internship?   Answer Question

    Internal Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Grand Rapids, MI

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Brooksource (Grand Rapids, MI) in February 2018.

    Interview

    A recruiter from Brooksource reached out to me on LinkedIn requesting that I interview. The recruiter and the Grand Rapids Manager, Trent came to my campus and hosted a information session going over their company, what they do, etc. It was very helpful because then you are educated before your interview. The next day I had a one on one interview with Trent that was very conversational. He asked if I would like to interview at the office in the following weeks. I went to interview again with Trent and he went through the way he runs their office: expectations, cold calling goals, work culture, etc. Then we had a typical interview. I thought it went very well, but found it strange I was not invited to meet others in the office because I read that it was typical in other reviews on here. I did not think much of it because their office is fairly new and SMALL.

    I did not get an offer and they did not email me to tell me, so I had to reach out to Trent in which case he simply had the recruiter send a auto generated email.

    Trent is very personable and the way he runs his ship is awesome, but the way they handled telling me I did not get an offer felt unprofessional.
