Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. I interviewed at Regus.

Interview

I applied for the position and they contacted me for the interview. Met at one of their Regus locations even though the position was at another Regus location. The interviewer was in Los Angeles and it was a video conference. I felt very comfortable answering the questions. The interviewer did ask what my previous boss would say about me? He apparently knew him.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Regus in November 2015.

    Interview

    Shortly after applying I was contacted to set up an in person interview locally at one of the Regus centers. I arrived early, and was offered a bottle of water while I waited. The interview with the district manager was around 45 minutes long, then I had about 15 minutes to spend with a current associate as well (which I thought was a tremendous idea). About a week later I was invited to take an online assessment that had the general personality questions along with some challenging language and advanced math sections. That assessment took just over an hour. Following that I was invited to a phone interview with a Regional Vice President that lasted about 1/2 hour. Finally I was invited to shadow a current GM in the business for a few hours to answer any final questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Regus (Seattle, WA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    First I had two, short phone interviews. They were upfront about the salary and wanted to make sure it was within my range. Then I shadowed general managers. This was a great process to go through to really understand what the job involved. Very fair and open process.

    • They asked me questions about how I would adapt to working in such a large organization.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Regus.

    Interview

    Interview was as expected for the position. Meet either in face or via video conference with who would potentially be your supervising manager/director, at least a 2 stage interview, which is how professional businesses typically interview...must get a yes for the position from more than 1 person.

    Interview Questions

    • You should always be prepared to give examples of your credentials. Just remember, the person interviewing you should already have your resume either in front of them or they have already reviewed it. Worst thing you can do is to repeat your credentials and accolades that they have written before them already. Do you suspect yourself to be a leader? Great, prove it, give me an example of a time(s) you were an inspiration to your staff. Think you are a team player? Tell me about a time...; Have you dealt with employee/customer/client confrontation before? Great, how did you manage/defuse the situation?   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Regus.

    Interview

    mind boggling outcome. I went through 4 interviews and was verbally offered the job over the phone, was told I would receive an offer letter shortly. A week goes by and they call me and say I actually have one more interview. Interview once again, and it "isn't a good fit."

    Interview

    I submitted my application online after seeing the opening on craiglist. Within 48 hours I was contacted by the Area Director. After a brief phone conversation, we agreed to have an in-person interview the following week. The interview took place at their office. Two area directors conducted the interview. Both were personable and professional. The interview went well with both saying I was a top candidate. They said the next steps would be an in-depth online test followed by a skype interview with the Regional Director. I took the online test the next day and received the results immediately. The results indicated that I did very well and fit the profile of what they described as their ideal candidate. That was three weeks ago. I have yet to hear from the Regional Director regarding an interview; nor have I received any response to the follow up email sent to the area director. If an offer was to be made, I doubt that I would give it much consideration.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing unusual. The interview was straightforward and without high pressure.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Regus (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    Initial phone contact/short interview. Then met with one current GM for face-to-face interview. Scheduled and had 2nd interview with another current GM. Was SUPPOSED to have face-to-face interview with Regional Manager - never happened. Ended up having phone interview.
    All the way through the process, I was provided VERY positive feedback as to my qualifications and responses to interview questions. Encouraged to contact GM's with questions while waiting, encouraged to 'stay in touch'. When I did, no replies - ever.
    NO FOLLOW UP after that - even when "promised" that I would be contacted either way. Contacted GM and RM and no replies.
    For a company that portrays an image of 'higher' class and integrity, I find it unconscionable that there would be no follow up on a position that they seem to regard as highly important and valued.
    I also feel that it is unnecessary and insulting to basically mislead candidates as to their chances of moving forward to a job offer - and even MORE insulting to not follow up.

    Interview Questions

    • None - very typical "tell me about a time when..." questions. Situational and behavioral questions.   Answer Question
