    Leadership Role Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    The process was very disorganized and disappointing. New management looking to elevate their strategic practice but do not seem to know what they are doing. Ironic for a company alleging to offer recruiting "best practices". I recommend running ...

    Leadership Position Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at First Advantage.

    Interview

    The process was organized from the beginning, so I shouldn't have wasted my time. The interview days and times kept changing and no one followed up with me to let me know the final decision. Culture changes come from the top down, so if the leadership team treats candidates this way, I can see why the organization is having a hard time shifting the culture.

    I applied online. I interviewed at First Advantage (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Process was way too long and multiple interviews. The managers were changing the hiring process as they went based on the other interviews. It was three months after I was hired that I learned the company was for sale which is what complicated fhe hiring process.

    Application

    The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at First Advantage.

    Interview

    1st interview was a phone interview with the hiring manager. 2nd interview was a interview onsight and the 3rd interview was onsight as well. I was given the job verbally by the hiring manager only to have her manager tell me they were not moving forward with me and we're looking for someone with more experience. A complete waste of time and energy. I had to follow up several times just for scheduling the interview and then after the final interview for the results. I found that to be very unprofessional. I went into the interview with last minute notice. It was a complete waste of time and energy. If I didn't have enough experience we could have eliminated this process after the 1st interview. Who tells someone they are excited to get them started and then not hire them. I would not suggest anyone interviewing with this company. Very unprofessional and waste people time. I brought my brag book and the guy didn't even want to look at it. That says enough.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at First Advantage (Atlanta, GA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Briefly. Asked basic questions, must be open to all shifts. Energy must be upbeat and willing. You will meet with a supervisor of the floor, strict on your timing when getting on phone. Tardy and absence is a no go.
