    HRIS Administrator Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Gerdau (Tampa, FL) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Originally sourced with a local staffing agency for the vacant position. Was advised by agency recruiter that the hiring manager had not yet found the candidate that would serve as a good fit for the position. Other candidates had Payroll Data Entry experience, but none - so far - had experience working with Personnel Administration software. They use SAP, but some of their recent acquisitions are tied to Ceridian software.

    Took two - three days to hear back from Agency after they submitted resume. I was overqualified for the position, but I was tired of contract work with no benefits and the local economy dried up HR-wise after my last contract ended in September. I was looking for an employer with a decent organizational culture, reasonable compensation, and that lead to a regular company-sponsored position; not long-term temporary as most of the market is these days.

    Scheduled interview a week in advance. Day before interview, contacted by recruiter. Was given helpful hints about how to overcome the over-qualification barrier, how to approach the hiring manager based on feedback from other candidates, etc.

    Interview: Not structured, but followed a general flow of going over my diverse contracting background (over the last 2 years) and my steady job history before (1 job only). Hiring manager was pleasant, well-spoken (intellectual), and we both had working knowledge of HRIS technical lingo/systems/etc.

    Manager stated there was a bit of apprehension initially because of the concern that the position would be too menial based on my prior roles. I stated, however, I was looking for a "home" (as the recruiter suggested I say it) and though the position was heavy data-entry, it would not serve as a barrier to me nor would it chase me away to greener pastures when the opportunity presents itself.

    Interview lasted 1 hour and 15 minutes. Based on some statements made in passing as we wrapped up and made our way down to the first floor (hiring manager came from a big beverage company; as it so happens, so did I, but for a major competitor), I was under the impression that I secured the position with some certainty.

    Advised two days later by recruiter that interview feedback was excellent - well-spoken, strong technical knowledge, charisma, etc - BUT, they felt that I would get "bored" with the position and move on as opportunities present themselves. While I can agree with that assessment as a practical issue, I was looking to pursue some personal enrichment that would be facilitated by having a transactional, seemingly "easy" position to rely on.

    Overall, very impressed with Hiring Manager. Since it was an agency temporary-to-permanent position, it did not follow the traditional Talent Acquisition process that Gerdau normally follows.
