    Engagement Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Jefferson Wells International (New York, NY) in June 2011.

    Interview

    The company offices in New York City were professional and well-organized. I was promptly and politely greeted by a receptionist, who asked me wait in the lobby for a few minutes for the manager. After less than 10 minutes, I was introduced to the manager, who warmly shook my hand and led me to a conference room for the interview. There, the manager described the company and role, and asked me questions about my experience and skills. I also asked questions, to which I received satisfactory answers. After about 45 minutes, I was told they were interviewing other candidates and I should hear back in a few days. We shook hands, and I was escorted back to the lobby. I felt good about the interview. In about four days, I received a phone call offering me the contract position, which I accepted.

    Business Development Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Jefferson Wells International (Chicago, IL) in January 2010.

    Interview

    The interview process started normal as expected. 2 phone interviews with a recruiter and then another phone interview with JW Business Development Director. 4th phone interview with HR Generalist at JW. Finally, face to face interview with Managing Director which went well. Seclected to come back again for a group interview with 5 employees over a 5 hour timeframe. Trial closed each interviewer by asking if they would be recommending me for the job and they said they would. Then it got wierd. No word for 5 days and then after I called the recruitor several times, was told that they decided against hiring anyone. Checked with internal friend at company and still nobody hired after another month. Felt slighted that I went through 7 interviews, hours of research and preparation without even an explaination of why I was not given an offer. I can accept rejection, but I wasn't even notified or given a reason. Beware of this group.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Jefferson Wells International (Chicago, IL) in February 2009.

    Interview

    The interview process first consisted of a phone interview with Human Resources. After expressing interest in the position, I was asked to come into the offices. I met with 2 Directors in which I explained my background and they informed me about the job responsibilities. I was then asked to meet with the Managing Director who also went into detail about the position and again I reiterated my background. No hard questions were asked. I felt it was very informal.

    Engagement Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Charlotte, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Jefferson Wells International (Charlotte, NC) in October 2008.

    Interview

    Communications with the company are somewhat disjointed as the recruiters are centralized regionally and the Directors who interview you are local. The interviews focused on past experiences and giving examples of worked performed. There were three interviews, one phone screening interview, one with the HR Director, and one with the Director to whom you would be reporting.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Very little. It is basically a take it or leave it offer.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Jefferson Wells International (Detroit, MI) in July 2008.

    Interview

    Phone call from recruiter after being found on Monster. Quick screening interview, then in-person with hiring manager the following week. Received offer about a week later.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Jefferson Wells International in May 2011.

    Interview

    Process consisted of 3 telephone interviews, an on-line intelligence and personaiity test, and 4 one-on-one interviews. Many questions were asked about exact names of companies and executives who are past clients of the candidate. Other questions were very typical: "tell me about yourself", strengths, weaknesses,
    and actual performance vs. sales goals. Company appears to have some issues with politics, staff concentration, and focus.
