    Operation Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Republic Services.

    Interview

    Spoke with the recruiters and talent acquisition partners numerous times about the different opportunities with Republic Services. They were helpful in the beginning but then they just stopped responded all together. I have over 7+ years of management experience with a Masters degree in Management and still couldn't get an interview for the trainee position, even though the talent acquisition partner stated I was qualified to go straight into a ops supervisor position.

    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Scottsdale, AZ
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Republic Services (Scottsdale, AZ).

    Interview

    I was contacted by a Recruiting MANAGER, along with 11 other candidates in copy. I'm still not sure why they contacted all of us copied into one email, but I would have preferred some sort of anonymity in the interview process. With that said, I lost interest in moving forward in the process and with the possibility of working for someone who cuts corners and puts candidates' anonymity at risk. This was extremely alarming, and a terrible first impression of the company's recruiting team.

    Hopefully this is only a reflection of this group and not of the company overall, but someone hired and trusted this person to do a job that they're clearly not qualified or capable of doing. Attention to detail is so important in the Human Resources/Recruiting team, and I'm very concerned that this happened.

    Interview

    Have u ever walked into a job and just felt like I'm deffinity not gonna get this job? introduction was not inviting, just put it like this the guy interviewing me seemed uninterested in me before we even spoke about my experience. Company's should really do more research on people before they put them in these type of positions.
