    Master Data Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Paterson, NJ
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Humanscale (Paterson, NJ) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The worst place to get interviewed at. After the interview process they had gotten back to me saying that I was selected. After several days of receiving the offer letter through mail , they had called me back to take a test saying that it was for internal process. The test process seemed to be not applicable for the role that I was not applying. After taking the test , they told me that the scores that I obtained was not enough for the role that I was applying and my offer got withdrawn . I was very disappointed in the hiring process that didn't do this process properly before giving me the offer. Will not apply for this company in the future.

    Account Development Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lanham, MD
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Humanscale (Lanham, MD) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I had 4 interactions with the company. 1) HR contacted me to qualify salary, availability, etc. 2) HR Followed up with another call to probe resume/lateral skills for position. 3) Met with future manager and director. 4) Met with future manager(s) again.

    Zero pointed/canned interview questions, instead used resume and conversation as a platform to discuss candidacy. This was my first experience with this approach, I've never been able to "flip" and ask the majority of the questions to a prospective employer. It was very refreshing and I enjoyed the challenge of having the freedom to drill down into the operations of the company.

    After my final interview I decided to respectfully withdraw from the process in search of a role that would better align with my skill set. Humanscale was very cordial and I wish them the best!

    Account Development Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Humanscale (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The process started with a phone interview. Then followed by 2 in person interviews. At each stage of the process, there was about a 2 week gap. From the initial submission of application to where an offer was made, the process was 2 months. Both managers were very warm and friendly. I could have seen myself working there, but received a better offer elsewhere.

    Senior Level Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Humanscale (New York, NY) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Had an initial 60 minute phone interview with an HR representative, which was a mostly positive experience. Was informed a day thereafter that the interview went well and I would proceed through to the next steps of the interview process. Then, everything went silent. Despite a couple of quick status-check calls and email messages over the last four weeks, I have not even had the courtesy of a reply. While clearly there is no longer interest in my candidacy, one would expect to receive at least a simple "we've decided to go in a different direction" response.
    In sum: A highly unprofessional experience. A potential bellwether of how the company is being run/managed, and thus perhaps a bullet dodged.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Humanscale (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    First phone interview was with a Recruiter from NJ who happened to find my resume online, need less to day I did not know what the company was at first. After a brief phone screening she forwarded my resume for review by the hiring mgr. A couple days ltr I got scheduled a face to face interview. Upon arriving at the location, I was told that I would have to take a t ping, MS Excel and Word test. It would of been nice to know this before hand so I could of prepared to input formulas into a spread sheet. Hence I don't think I pasted this portion. The conversation piece of the interview went well but I don't think the job was for me since it's 90% data/ order entry.

    Account Development Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Humanscale in January 2015.

    Interview

    1.) Recruiter phone screen 2.) In-person interview with local district manager 3.) Phone interview with regional manager 4.) Phone interview with regional VP 5.) In-person interview with all 3 managers...... Ridiculously repetitive questioning. Zero emphasis on educational or personal background or interests (iow: who are you as a person?); 100% of questions are strictly work experience-related and numbers-driven. The regional manager and VP were very cold and rather unprofessional. The regional manager was 20 minutes late to call me for our phone interview (round 3) and had clearly not spent any time looking over my resume. Then at one point in the call, I heard him walking through what sounded like a wind tunnel with all kinds of street and wind background noise going on (thanks for taking my interview seriously, buddy. Your time is way more important than mine; got it.). The recruiter was sweet, but highly inexperienced. She told me after the 4th round interview that "they love you" and "if you'd just be willing to drive 3 hours away to meet with them all in person, I really think they'll give you an offer. It's really a formality for you to meet the other two." I felt like I was set up for an ambush, as the final round was the most grueling of all - driven by the regional guys - with an intense line of questioning. There was no smiling or any opportunity to lighten the mood. It made me wonder whether they ever liked me in the first place and why I'd been asked to drive 3 hours to meet with them after weeks of interviews. Also worth mentioning, all of these managers were men. This place seems to have a bit of an "old boys' club" culture with very few women in management positions. I thought for a moment I might want to work for this company, but I am truly thankful and glad I won't be.
