    Anonymous Employee in Phoenix, AZ
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ISS (Phoenix, AZ) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Met manager, talked about the position and location and then finished discussion and pay in the parking lot. Very casual and not very professional. Acted as if I was taking up too much time which the entire process took less than 30 minutes. As long as I was alive and willing to do the job I was hired.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ISS (Phoenix, AZ) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The Initial contact with the recruiter was great. Very energetic and efficient. After the recruiter set up a interview with the VP of HR it was done in a great timely manner. After about 2 weeks later I had an interview with a regional manager. After another 2 weeks I got an email to meet the 3er person the VP of the region. After over a 2 week of no contact I wrote emails to the recruiter and VP of HR.
    They didn't contact or return the phone calls or emails. At the end they didn't made me aware of nothing. No letter, No communication. They waste my time and money . I had to pay $70.00 per day for a baby sitter to take care my daughter with down syndrome.
    Giving the candidates the run a round is not professional. I will never do that as HR person.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at ISS (Sioux Falls, SD) in January 2014.

    The interview was pretty easy. They ask you general questions about who you, what previous jobs you had. You answer the questions, and they take that into account. Responsilbity and time management are definitely important because of the fact that you should know everything about this company. Housekeeper is important for time management.

    Housekeeping Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Woodbridge, NJ

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at ISS (Woodbridge, NJ) in April 2015.

    Interview

    There was barely an interview process. I called a "supervisor" who worked at one of the locations, she told me what I'd be doing, and I started the very next day. Since they were desperate for workers. After the end of the first day I filled out a form, give them my photo ID & Social Security card and that was pretty much it.

    Facilities Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at ISS.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter via LinkedIn. There seems to be a major disconnect between their recruiters and hiring managers. They reached out to me, set up a phone interview, and then never got back in touch with me. I had to email the recruiter for an update and all she could tell me was she had not heard back from the hiring manager. You should not contact people and waste their time with a phone screen if you are not even going to follow up and give them a yes or no.
