Recruiter Interview

Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at PeopleScout (Chicago, IL) in August 2015.

Interview

Six interviews including the contract client. Extremely thorough vetting of all candidates even for very experienced individuals. Was surprised how difficult considering the moderate level of responsibilities and low salary being offered. Once offer extended and accepted lots of post offer paperwork required by them. But my immediate report manager is very knowledgeable if precise and demanding on metrics.

    Interview

    I was interviewed quickly and received my offer letter within two days. The interview process went smoothly. I was told there would be opportunities to advance quickly. I was offered $15.00. After being there a year I realized that much of what I was told during the interview process was a lie.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PeopleScout (Chicago, IL) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Very brief and it felt like it was not a real interview because the interviewer was confused with the work I would do. He talked about discrimination and how the company would not mess with him because he knew his rights. I informed him of the pay I wanted and he said okay although he did not explain what the actual job entailed.

    Well, Back when I applied for the position it was a group interview and it felt as if we were auditioning for the position.
