    Management Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Language Services Associates (Horsham, PA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Had a phone screen, then invited to interview in-person with the HR specialist and the Director of HR. Was received coldly by the HR specialist who treated both myself and colleagues with equal disdain and disregard. The Director did not show. My conversation with the HR specialist was all of 8 minutes. While I felt good about my answers and the few questions I was able to ask, I was also sitting there the whole time trying to figure out what I had done to make this interviewer so upset with me. It was very uncomfortable, and I never did find out as all further correspondence went without reply.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Language Services Associates.

    Interview

    They called me to come in for an interview. I came in and everything seemed great. One of the managers was out sick so they asked me to do a phone interview with her the following week, which also went well. Then, that followed with a full week of not hearing anything back from them until the very last second before I was about to call them to follow up. I received an email telling me I didn’t get the position. Most likely they hired someone internally or I was too risky if a hire compared to another interviewer because I was changing career fields.

    I honestly did not really have an interview for LSA. They found me on LinkedIn and asked me if I wanted to contract with them, and I said yes.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Language Services Associates (Horsham, PA) in January 2018.

    Interview

    The process started with a phone screening with the HR Director. I was then invited to an in person interview. The interview went great, everyone was very friendly and welcoming. I met with the VP, the President, HR Director and a few other people. The interview lasted about 2 hours. I was then brought into the HR office and asked if the job was something I was interested in. I was then asked to sign some papers to give authorization for a background check and credit check. I signed the papers and went home.
    I reached out to the HR Director several times for status and heard nothing for over a week. I was then told that everyone liked me but when it came down to making the decision to hire someone for the position they decided not to hire anybody and keep the duties spread amongst a few current employees and not spend the money on a new hire.
    I understand nothing is a guarantee but I would expect that a company who has gone through the trouble of posting a job opening and interviewing would have gotten past the point of debating the cost of a new hire.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Language Services Associates.

    Interview

    Phone interview was easy. The lady that did it had very low energy and seemed annoyed. She cut me off a lot. I don’t think she has interview experience. People on site outside HR were nice. Space was really small for so many people. Office smelled. Was told I did well and would hear. Never did. I emailed three different times to follow up and never got a reply. I called once and got transferred around a lot. I’m glad I didn’t hear back because they left a bad impression.
