    Service Desk Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Newedge (Chicago, IL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Great company to work for, potential growth, great benefits and good pay! At least that's what I was told during the interview. I applied for this position and passed both the first and second interview process. I also passed the background and reference process. Generally, after a week or two you receive a letter or call from your potential employer letting you know your start date, etc. I waited a month to hear back from their in-house recruiter regarding my start date, but never received a call or email. I had to chase down the process; to only find out from their in-house recruiter they (Societe Cenerale) decided to make the full-time position I applied for a contract position. It get's better, the following day the same full-time position was posted on-line again as a FULL-TIME position. Lucky for me I didn't give my two weeks notice to my current employer, before assuming my position with Newedge. Possibly a good company, but lack of professionalism. New Hire(s) beware!

    Accounting Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Newedge (Chicago, IL) in October 2011.

    Interview

    The initial phone interview with HR was quick and to the point, and consisted of some typical phone screen questions. Following the initial phone screen, an onsite 1:1 interview was scheduled which I felt went well and lasted a little more than an hour. The final interview happened a few weeks after that and was scheduled to be with several other members of the team. The interview itself wasn’t very difficult and it also seemed to go pretty well. After several weeks went by with no feedback, it was finally communicated that the position was filled with an internal candidate.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Newedge (Chicago, IL) in April 2010.

    Interview

    A series of panel interviews with HR and Finance people. The finance folks were sharp...the HR folks not too.
    The org is really screwed up and after many interviews they decided to promote from within. It was obvious that the staff was overworked but also under-qualified for their positions. They were looking to bring in expertise to do the dirty work but not make the necessary changes. They made it clear that they wanted the payroll supervisor fired.
