    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Republic Services (Scottsdale, AZ) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I had an initial phone interview with the recruiter, then a phone interview with the hiring supervisor. Once past those, they brought me in to interview with the hiring supervisor and a peer interview. After passing that round I was brought back in to interview with the executives I would be supporting.
    This was one of the best overall interview processes I have over had. From the initial phone call and being told what to expect to being given complete logistic details for the in person interviews.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Republic Services (Chandler, AZ).

    Interview

    Telephone Interview was clean and clear-cut. However, there is a process breakdown with 2nd and 3rd interviews. The contact center is new and seems to have some process improvements needed. Slow communication (could've been just me since I was declined the position).

    I applied online. I interviewed at Republic Services (Chandler, AZ) in August 2017.

    My interview was close to 2 hours. I came in and interviewed with 2 current supervisors after meeting with recruiting. Most of the questions were "tell me about a time when..." format. After the questions were over, I had to opportunity to sit with a consultant and listen to calls for about 20 minutes. From there, we met back up and they answered any questions I had.

    Territory Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bozeman, MT

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Republic Services (Bozeman, MT) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The H.R. contact was great but the hiring manager did not impress me. The H.R. contact was clear, concise and encouraging. The hiring manager was negative and demanding. I felt he disqualified me because of my age and labeled as I was "not hungry enough". I have sensed he would have required total career devotion and not allowed for a work-life balance, so I am glad I did not proceed in the interview.

    Interview

    Took three months from first interview to job offer. Had to constantly call the recruiter to get an update on status. Would be better if you were able to speak with other employees to get an idea of culture.
