    Executive Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Westchester, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at CPS (Westchester, IL).

    Interview

    Your initial conversation will be with an internal recruiter. They will then decide which division has a current need and have you meet with the manager of that division. This is a VERY laid back environment - DON'T wear a suit and tie to the interview - think khakis and a polo AT MOST. Once you meet with the division manager, they will then have you come in and do phone session where they give you a phone list and tell you to make as many contacts as possible. The biggest thing is to keep dialing as they want to see that you're not afraid to pick up the phone especially after a big NO.

    Interview Questions

    • Who is your best friend? What would they say about you?

      Who is your role model?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. They do offer several compensation packages to start but will not mention them unless you ask. They want to get you in the door at 100% commission because it cost them nothing. The comp options are $3,500 a month for 3 months or $2,500 for 3 months with MUCH lower commission rates at this level. The compensation should actually stretch out 5-6 months as that is the standard time it takes to get paid on your first placement (if you get one).
