    Interview

    The corporate recruiter was extremely helpful throughout the application process. The interview was another story. The interview was an entire day of back-to-back interviews that included highlights such as one interviewer yawning repeatedly, multiple comments about how difficult it is to work with the company president and various references to a micro-managing culture. The finale was the interview with one of the senior executives who proceeded to text during the interview. At the end of the long day no one was around to see me out so I found the front and saw myself out. Very unprofessional process for a recruiting company, and if that is the best foot forward I can only imagine what it is like to work there.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pinstripe (Brookfield, WI) in December 2013.

    Interview

    I was contacted in early December of 2013 by their Senior Talent Acquisition Coordinators to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview was the next week Monday. After a 20-minute phone interview she immediately scheduled an in-person interview for me to come in and interview with three client relations managers.
    The interview with the CLM was pretty relaxed and basic. It definitely was not a very difficutl interview, just know about the position and make sure to ask questions, they seemed to like that.

    Negotiation

    As for me there was no negotiation phase. I am not sure if you can negotiate pay rate for this position. I don't have any other obligations so the pay they gave me was reasonable.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pinstripe (Brookfield, WI) in March 2013.

    Interview

    The hiring process was good because you were able to speak with several different individuals from different parts of the organization, so you were able to see different aspects of the company and what to expect on the job. However, the interview questions become repetitive with all of the different individuals, which made me feel that they may not have all been worth it.

    Interview Questions

    • Very general questions. Do you like a fast paced environment? Are you organized?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They asked me what I expected to make and were right there as far as salary goes.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Pinstripe (Brookfield, WI) in October 2012.

    Interview

    It was a pretty basic phone interview, they asked a little bit about my current and past work duties. They called 3 days later with some bs excuse that there was a lot of internal movement within in the company and they would not be hiring at the moment. That was the second time I was given an excuse by them about "internal" movement. They will "hold" my resume.
    I thought it would be a good place to get experience but I don't want to work for a company that can't even give applicants a straight answer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pinstripe (Brookfield, WI) in September 2012.

    Interview

    3 Step Process. First was a phone interview with HR followed by an online application and 8 minute assessment test. Second was a phone interview with the hiring manager. Third was an onsite interview with 7 different people. Each interview was appx 30 minutes long. Each interviewer was very nice and easy to speak with.

    Interview Questions

    • None of the interviews focused on the sometimes difficult to answer behavioral type questions. They were simply discussions about the company and your personal background. Each interviewer allowed time for me to ask whatever question I had.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Pinstripe (Brookfield, WI) in April 2011.

    Interview

    I first met Pinstripe at the Marquette Workforce job fair in the spring. The impression I got from the recruiters there was that if I would present them a plate of baked goods, I would receive the job. I was that turned off. A few weeks later, I got an email asking me to apply online, then I received a call to coordinate a phone interview on an upcoming Wednesday. This was extremely easy. The interview lasted for maybe a half an hour. While on the phone, I scheduled a 1:1 interview for Friday, only two days later. I was also emailed a personality test and a website to fill out a reference form. Note: I filled out the reference form at 10pm before my in person interview, which was at 11am.

    Fast forward to the next day. I arrived early for my interview around 10:50am. I spent a good 15 minutes sitting in the lobby by myself because nobody was at the front desk, and it took awhile for a passing person to ask me if I was waiting for someone. I finally saw one of the people who saw me that day and assisted me in filling out background check forms and other applications. She then left for another 10-15 minutes and finally my would-be supervisor came in to ask a few questions. These were focused on my job history and this only lasted for about 5 minutes. EXTREMELY informal.

    I then received a phone call 3 hours later with a job offer.

    Reasons for Declining

    1) There was ABSOLUTELY no way they would've had time to check my references before I came in.
    2) I was given until Monday night to make a decision.
    3) I would be working at $12/hr, no benefits. I was fine with that because I would live at home and had my dad's insurance. But that was so not worth it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Pinstripe (Brookfield, WI) in November 2010.

    Interview

    My initial phone interview went very well and the recruiter was very friendly. I was excited to continue on with the interview process, even after hearing multiple negative comments about the leadership of the company. That all changed when I went in for the 1:1 interview. I met with my would-be manager and she was very pleasant. But when I got to the interview with the other team members that I would be collaborating with, I knew I did not want to work at this company. They came into the conference room with very bad attitudes and one of them even went as far as saying that she can be a real b*tch (and she claims she told her VP this). I have never had such an unprofessional interview in my almost 20 years of working in the corporate world. I would never want to work for this company.

    Was called for a phone interview. Seemed as though person on the other line could care less about their job. Heard that it was a bunch of college kids that worked there and it was basically a big call center, with low pay.

    Interview

    I was an employee referral, so they contacted me by phone and asked me to set up a phone interview. Then I completed the application and a 20 minute assessment test. After that was the phone interview. And within two days I was contacted to schedule a face to face interview. After the face to face, I was offered the job that afternoon.

    Senior Recruiter Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Pinstripe in September 2010.

    Interview

    The process began with an online application. Then an hour long interview with the Pinstripe Corporate Recruiter. Then I had 2 separate phone interviews; one with the hiring manager and another with a VP for the division. I then flew to Wisconsin for a day of interviews with roughly 6 people. Half of those people were there just to tell ME what it is like to work for Pinstripe and make sure I got solid insight into the company. I was able to talk with people from the Recruiter to VP level and they were very open to me asking questions concerning challenges, work-life balance, opportunities for growth--I didn't feel like I had to hold back. Of course, they served me lunch and took me on a tour of the office as well. It was a robust and positive experience.

    I heard back within that same week as to their decision and we were able to get to a final agreement by the next day.

    Interview Questions

    • My first interview with the corporate recruiter was most challenging. She listed off each of the company values one at a time and I had to respond with how my work style and ethics correspond to their values. GREAT questions, but it was pretty intense!   Answer Question
