    Junior Technical Recruiter Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Gambit Technologies (Denver, CO) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview moved very quickly from an almost non-existent "pre-screen" to a full blown, 3 hour interview with the entire team. I met 1 individual in person, and the rest virtually through Skype or phone.

    Interview Questions

    • The area where I was most thrown was when they asked me to review a sample job description, and then describe the "Avatar" candidate the role. They wanted to know a lot of specifics on the spot, particularly what school the "Avatar" went to, how old they were, how experienced, etc.   1 Answer

    Entry Recruiter Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Gambit Technologies (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I sent my resume and got an email the next day asking about a phone interview.
    The phone interview lasted for 30 minutes and included questions like what is recruiting and what experience do you have. They also randomly ask behavior questions so stay focused.
    Afterwards, I meet 5 different people for an interview. They seemed nice, but I didn't fit in their company culture. They do give you a brain teaser.It is kind of intense, but it is repetitive too. They all ask the same questions and some didn't even read my resume. But they were pretty cool people.

    Junior Recruiter Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Gambit Technologies.

    Interview

    Not an awful experience. Process is really drawn out- they ask you lots of questions, you meet with almost every head of departments, and they have you take part in what I can only describe as improv exercises to figure out how you would react in the job.
    Although it seema like a good company to work for, and I have nothing bad to say about the people who interviewed me and worked there- I'm not sure if I fit in with the culture there, and this hesitancy probably came across im the interview.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Gambit Technologies (New York, NY) in January 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by one of their recruiters (Jacob) who was very knowledgeable about the role that I was applying for and too my surprise very technical.

    Subsequent to that conversation my resume was submitted for the role we had discussed. Within 3 days I had my first telephone interview and a week after that flown in by the company for a full day of interviews.

    The whole process went better then I could have every imagined. Prior to the interview I spoke to Jacob and his team for some basic insight on what to expect during the interview. Soon after the interview I received an offer.

    The negotiations went extremely smooth since I was relocating from the west coast. These guys handled everything from negotiating an awesome salary and a buyout of my option, plus a very attractive relo package. I was very impressed of how the whole process played out and I am loving the east coast (except for this recent polar vortex ugh)

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Gambit Technologies in September 2013.

    Interview

    I received a telephone interview just half hour after I submitted the application. The recruiter was nice and patient, he asked about my personal experience based on my resume and additional small quiz. 1. What is the difference between hashtable and hashmap? Are they synchronized? 2. Given a unsorted array of integers that values from 0 to N, with one number missing, now find out what number it is as fast as possible.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Gambit Technologies (New York, NY) in February 2011.

    Interview

    This place is a joke.

    I have received several calls from them in the past couple years. The recruiters (like most) capture your interest with a good job opening.

    From the initial conversation on, everything is unprofessional. Recruiter missed two scheduled calls and returned my call hours later in the afternoon while I was back at work. They call you and when you follow up as they instruct, they do not return your calls. Recruiter doesn't listen when you talk and then asks repetitive questions.

    Dont waste your time with them.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Gambit Technologies in February 2010.

    Interview

    I got an email from an IT recruiter at Gambit after posting my resume online. I returned an email, expressing interests in connecting with him, but received no response. A week or two later, I updated my resume and received an email from the same recruiter again. I called this time to connect, and after a short conversation about what I am looking for, and how was my GPA and GMAT score, the recruiter said that he has difficulty to find a fit for the positions he has. Suddenly, he jumped to ask an interview question.
