    Network Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Custom Computer Specialists (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    As other people mentioned, the first step was an enjoying 50 questions in 12 mins. The questions were not that hard. Just test your logic and how careful you are. Then, I had my first interview with the recruiter who called me. The questions were about my experiences. She was so nice and friendly. It had no dead air while interviewing, we smiled and laughed together. After that she asked me to talk to another person which I counted it as my second interview. The second interview was talking with a manager of their network engineer department. The questions were a little bit more technical than interviewing with the recruiter. Yet, he wanted me to talk to another person which is more technical. However, the guy who he wanted me to talk to already left the office because it was quite late of that day. So, he told me he will give my files to the recruiter and she will schedule me when to have an interview with the third person.
    In sum, everything went very well in my opinion and they were so nice to me. I am so interested to work with them. However, I haven't heard anything back from them since my interview date. It's might because of the 4th of July long weekend. I will update again once I get something new.

    Human Resources Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Custom Computer Specialists (Hauppauge, NY).

    Interview

    I was phone screened by a very nice recruiter. She sent me a detailed email explaining the steps of the interview process and instructions to fill out the online application and bring it in with me. I met with 2 different people: the recruiter and a lady who administered their pre-employment test. Both were nice, particularly the recruiter. The 1 thing I did not like about the process was taking what I believe was a Wonderlich test. You have 10 minutes to answer 50 something questions. People are already nervous on interviews, and then you get blindsided with an SAT like test that you have to complete in 10 minutes. It wasn't fun. Some people are not good test takers and have test anxiety. I'm unsure if they can really predict or dictate if you're a good fit for the position or predict how successful you would be at a job. Just like some people don't interview well and end up being great workers. Or there are people who interview well and end up not being good workers. Although I didn't get the job, I was impressed with how organized and efficient their interviewing process was. They did send me a polite rejection email. Other companies are not nearly as polite or as thorough as this company is.

    I passed a phone interview containing general questions regarding my experience as a project manager and was invited to onsite interview.

    The HR was extremely nice and welcoming. There were some behavioural questions.

    Took a while to get hired after interview. The Sales Director had been traveling on business so the process was a little longer than expected but the outcome was worth it.

    I was ultimately hired through a staffing agency and there was no wiggle room. I started on their terms and once I was hired by Custom as full time, permanent employee, they brought my pay up to where I was expecting.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Custom Computer Specialists (Hauppauge, NY) in August 2010.

    Interview

    I was referred by an employee and it took a few weeks before the interview was scheduled. The interview process was pretty usual but getting a decision took forever. Had to be interviewed by a psychologist before the final offer was made. The interview with the psychologist was a totally worthless experience.
