    Staff Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nash, TN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Parker & Lynch (Nash, TN) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Asked me to email him my resume and I did. Without even going over it with on the phone he claimed he couldn't help me. He went as so far to say not a single recruiter in the entire country would be able to find me a job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Parker & Lynch in January 2014.

    Interview

    Recruiters clearly know how to get candidates in the door to expand their database. Surprise! Their trick is to over-promise and under-deliver. The interview was ridiculously over simplified for a professional hiring situation. Three other recruiters lined up no less than six interviews each. Having been recruited for all my previous positions, I had never created a resume and expected that someone earning a commission from placing clients would be willing to offer tips or, at the very least, critiques. Guess again.

    • Asked if I had a car and if family in the area (irrelevant questions)   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    You have to push for them to negotiate on your behalf. Negotiation was successful for first placement, but subsequently timid on the negotiations.

    Interview

    I received a call from a recruiter. She asked me few quick questions from my resume. It was literally 1 min call. Went to an interview for the next day. Seriously disappointed, she asked few more questions from my resume. I asked her about the position, said I didn't qualify. For me to keep her posted on how my job search is going! Horrible company...wasted my valuable time!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Parker & Lynch in January 2018.

    Interview

    It was a phone screen only. Did not proceed further. It didn’t feel right to give someone all the information and sign the contract before even meeting someone personally from the company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Parker & Lynch.

    Interview

    First I got a phone pre-screen, the account manager did not give any heads up before calling. So be prepared to answer the phone at time. Then I was asked to come to their office and had a in-person interview. It's about 30 minutes. They are pretty nice and would validate the parking pass for you.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Parker & Lynch.

    Interview

    Contacted twice by a recruiter from Parker and Lynch insisting she had a position that fit my qualifications. I set up a phone interview time with them to discuss, never got a call just an email a day later saying something came up. They contacted me again this week, set up another phone interview, never got contacted. This place is unreliable.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Parker & Lynch.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter who said that I should come in and discuss some job opportunities. I came in and met with the recruiters, who said they would try to help me find a job and they mentioned a few different positions they had. However, after that was over I never heard from them again, ever. Not a single word from them about these positions. I am assuming that they just brought me in so they could meet some type of candidate interview quota, never intending to actually help me with anything. It was a waste of time to meet with them.
