    ACCOUNT TRAINEE Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Octagon (Houston, TX) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I was reached out to by a talent accusation associate that I had worked with in the past. She put me in contact via a phone interview with who would be my direct manager to start the interview process. After that I met with his two managers via a skype interview. I received a written offer within 3 days of my last interview. The team communicated constantly which was a great benefit to have as some organizations try to leave you in the dark until they offer you the job. Laura, my talent acquisition associate, was very open and answered any questions I had. This was a great experience and I am very excited to begin working for Octagon

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Octagon (Chicago, IL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Three phone interviews and an assignment. I started interviewing with the person that will oversee me, and moved up from there. Fairly easy questions, and nothing super random. Everyone was very nice and seemed well prepared. Being out of town, all my interviews were over the phone, however, they did ask for a final in person interview.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Octagon (Norwalk, CT) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I had two phone interviews and two in person interviews; one of the interviews was with a panel. After each round of interviews, I had a debrief meeting with my recruiting coordinator to discussed how the interviews went. I felt that the way Octagon handled the interview process, while lengthy, was thorough and added a personal touch that was very different than any other interview process I had experienced. It made me value the company's overall vetting process that much more.
