    Interview

    HR called, and then requested to schedule an in-person interview. In person, interview consisted of meeting with 2 individuals from the team, and the HR rep. Very dry, surface level questions. Did not seem accommodating to a college class schedule, when scheduling the interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Phillip Jeffries (Fairfield, NJ) in October 2017.

    Interview

    An HR rep called me and asked me a few questions that in no way, shape, or form could give anyone any idea of a person's work history or if they'd fit the role. An HR rep called me out of the blue and didn't schedule another time for me to speak. She said it would just take 10 minutes and she asked me 3 questions you'd see in an HR manual. There was 0 thought put into the process. Once she told me it would take 10 minutes, I figured I'd stay on the line but tank the call. There's no way I wanted to work for a company that would judge future employees on whatever 3 questions she was going to ask. Even if I'd gotten past this terrible phone call to the next round, I probably wouldn't have wanted to work there. Their HR is the first impression that any employee gets from a company, and they came off like they were simply going through resumes off an assembly line with these terrible questions. They seemed lazy and surprised that I was interested in their industry. By the second question I could

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult questions, but some of the last phone interview was very 'canned', 'scripted'- I felt like she was doing other things while asking me questions. Long pauses, it was unprofessional. It was long and lengthy, process was about 2 or 3 months   1 Answer

    Systems Administrator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Phillip Jeffries (Fairfield, NJ) in January 2019.

    Interview

    I was contacted pretty quickly after applying by a member from HR. The first question that they asked was what my salary requirements were. The position's initial budget was 12-15k less than my requirement and they never told me. They got closer to my number and I asked about the hours and if there were any opportunities to work remotely to make up for it. After looking over the offer and seeing the benefits and perks that they offer I was going to accept it. Then they rescinded the offer, this could have all been avoided if their HR Department had told me in the first place that the salary was nowhere near my requirements.
