    Training Coordinator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GP Strategies (Huntersville, NC) in November 2016.

    Interview

    sitting across the table from 3 people interviewing you. The interview was more conversational and lasted an hour. All three interviewers asked questions. The interviewers were not at all intimidating and very friendly. The only thing I was disappointed with was that they told me they would follow up with me on whether or not I would get a second interview because they don't like to leaving anyone waiting and I never heard from them.

    Multimedia Developer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at GP Strategies (Dallas, TX) in April 2016.

    Interview

    This interview was for a multimedia role supporting a training effort at Texas Instruments. I was contacted by a HR specialist at GP Strategies for an initial phone screen. I then spoke to another GP HR/Talent manager over the phone a few days later who asked more detailed questions based off of the job posting. Shortly after that, I was sent an email request for an in-person interview at TI. With a company like TI, one would expect a certain level of professionalism over let's say a start-up that just crawled out of the garage. Unfortunately, that was not the case. The GP rep conducted the interview in the most stale, pretentious, and pointless way possible. Most good interviews are handled like an intelligent conversation and less like a sorority initiation. For extra fun, the panel was flanked with TI engineers who could have provided real insight into the role and its expectations. Instead, when they weren't nitpicking over the semantics of my responses, they just sat there like two sacks of sawdust, watching the show. There should have been a concession stand in the lobby (where the interview was actually held) so they could have purchased popcorn. I write this review not so much to vent over one experience, but to hopefully point out red flags that I am seeing all to often these days during the interview process. If a company pulls you into a P2P interview and turns the interview into anything other than a discussion about a specific job and it's requirements, proceed with caution. While respect may have to be earned, civility is just a common courtesy. If you aren't treated with as much when first walking in the door, it's not worth your time. My conclusion was that GP Strategies and its "talent specialists" have no better clue how to hire for quality professionals than Walmart does. And to the devil with TI. Whatever genius used to float through their facilities has apparently evaporated, as evidenced by the "Homer Simpson" version of an engineer on the interview panel.

    Inside Sales Department Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at GP Strategies (Baltimore, MD) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Long and disappointing. I went through four interviews and then after a Skype interview, I never heard back from them. I even called the scheduling person and my call was never returned. I then heard form others online that this is typical of this company. They waste your time to see "what's out there" for projects they don't have yet. I wouldn't have minded this so much if they had returned a call or followed up after the interview. Unprofessional and rude.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical ISD questions. They threw in a lot of theory which is all well and good but not realistic out there in the work environment.   Answer Question
