    Human Resources Generalist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Arlington, VA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Halfaker and Associates (Arlington, VA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I did a phone interview and in-person interview. I was told that by the recruiter that during the phone interview I was too loud, but hey loved me during the in-person interview. I was also told my two immediate supervisors were loud and did not want to hire someone that was also loud. I have never been told that they do not want to hire someone like the boss. I was told by the recruiter I was not selected. About 5 days later the recruiter called and told me that the first choice fell through and I am now the first choice, but they want to do another interview with me on the phone and I need to be quieter, which I guess meant not talk on the phone. These people are so unprofessional. I am a disabled veteran and figured since the owner is a disabled veteran I would be treated better. I decided not to speak to them on the phone again and withdrew my name from consideration.

    Human Resources Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Halfaker and Associates.

    Interview

    I was contacted about the position in September 2016. The recruiter was interested in setting up a 15 min phone interview. However, he never responded to my emails. I think the recruiter sets the tone for the company culture and this experience was not a very good feel for the company. I do not want to bash the company, as I am sure it is a great company. However, a response is the right way to conduct business.

    Project Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Halfaker and Associates (Arlington, VA) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Traditional interview with staff Recruiter, then with the Senior Program Manager I'd be working for; standard review of your experience/education/certifications/accomplishments, and your experience/knowledge related to the job; then a few odd-ball questions just to see how you think/reason. 30-minutes or so in length, no big deal, just be sure you:

     - Research the company; it's founder, Dawn Halfaker; company values and key services, etc. (you will be asked what you know about the company... if it's a PM or above position, and you don't know anything about it, you will NOT get the job)

     - Research the contract/client agency that you'd be contracted to; and if possible, research the specific project or effort

    - Bone-up on ALL of the skills on the job description; that is, do NOT say, "I don't know what that is"... for crying out loud, if it's on the job description, study-up on it so that you can at least speak intelligently about it
