Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cielo in April 2015.

Interview

The process was much longer than it needed to be as a result of the recruiter rescheduling multiple times and never calling, only emailing. The recruiter also just didn't bother to follow up after rescheduling twice. I had to follow up which is okay but indicated to me the position was not a top priority. I can't say I was impressed.

Reasons for Declining

Didn't feel like it was the kind of company I'd like to represent given the process I went through.

    Interview

    Interview process was smooth, onboarding was a little more bumpy with issues with equipment not working properly. Had 3 phone interviews prior to my hire with various levels in the organization.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cielo in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online (found the job through a job board aggregator). I received an email within 2 days, interviews were scheduled very quickly. All in all it was, probably, a 3-4 week process but I interviewed with a lot of individuals. They made sure I had a clear understanding of the position and was comfortable with everything I had been told about the position. And that is rare in today's world. I absolutely started this job being completely comfortable about the expectations. Working remote is new to me and I have never felt like I wasn't in communication with anyone. There were many people I could reach out to with questions.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Cielo (Milwaukee, WI) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I had 4 interviews rounds and I felt like that didn’t know exactly what they wanted. Most of them were phone interviews and it it took two months to be hired. I rejected the first offer and then they did a counter-offer. They were not clear what the client wanted and the organizational culture. This I learned along the way.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Cielo (San Diego, CA) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Had a phone conversation with one of their “recruiters” who I had asked before we set up the interview if the position was still available that they had reached out to me about. They never answered and this “interview,” and I use that term lightly, seemed to be more of a sales call and to train their recruiter how to be better at their job. The recruiter lied and basically did a bait and switch and told me about contract positions. The recruiter asked me for my salary history, which I refused because this is illegal to ask here in California, which this position would be based out of. Then she said they will find out anyway because they would do a background check. I said well good luck because my past companies cannot provide that information in California. She then asked me about how good I am at Boolean search logic. Okay? Why not give an assessment instead of ask for my own judgement on my own skills? At the end of the “interview,” she asked if I had any referrals for anyone who is interested in the position they reached out to me for. Can you believe that? Amateurs. No thanks. Again, they reached out to me for this job and they don’t seem like they know what they are doing. If you are looking for a professional, be prepared to pay what they are worth and not used antiquated methods of deriving at a salary to try to low ball candidates.

    Interview

    I have an issue with this company and I will NEVER apply again. I’ve made several attempts to join their organization. All attempts have been a complete failure. With all the experience I have. There must be some in this company that knows me personally. The recruiter also rejected several of my applications. This is not the way you treat potential employees.
