    Junior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Rimes Technologies (New York, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed with 5 people back to back (some in pairs). The interview process was not what I expected. Most of the people I met with were younger, and the dialogue was awkward/not very professional. It did not match my expectations from the phone screening or my research.

    I had a hard time getting more information about the company from the interview process. I asked one of the interviewers to tell me more about RIMES and the positions responsibilities and she had a hard time explaining it (the job posting is very vague).

    The questions were very basic. I was asked the same questions over and over by different people. Many questions were not substantive. Ie. "How many coins could you fit in xxxx". Or "tell me a joke".

    Based on the interviews, I'm not sure I want to work here anyway.

    Finance Position Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Rimes Technologies (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Complete waste of time. Went to offices to interview on 4 different occasions. Had to take various online tests which were ridiculous. One of them wanted you to answer emails and solve problems at the same time; supposedly that would determine if you were good at multi-tasking. It was impossible to get a high score.

    Interview Questions

    • Taking so many online tests which really don't prove whether you can do the job or not. Someone can be a good test taker but not perform well in the work setting   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Rimes Technologies (New York, NY) in August 2013.

    Interview

    After submitting a CV I got invited for a phone interview which was about 30 minutes. They covered recent jobs and experiences. Nothing special. I think they were just making sure I'm not a complete idiot. Then half a day interview on site talking to a couple of people. I think they were people from the group I would have worked with.

    Interview Questions

    • They wanted to know if I'm more a dog or a cat person. What kind of a question is that ?   Answer Question

    Junior Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Rimes Technologies (New York, NY) in June 2011.

    Interview

    I came into contact with HR. The company first had me to take an online exam that tested reading/math/computer/databases skills. Then I came in for a face to face interview with three employees. The VP seemed to expect the candidate to know every little detail about what the company does. I never got a clear description of the kinds of projects developers work on. Many of the people I met that day seemed to lack good communications skills.
    Most of the interview questions revolved around my past experiences listed on my resume. I didn't get any technical questions or brainteasers. I was also asked why I was interested in the position.
    I never heard anything after the interview, even though I was told that they would get back to me, good news or bad.

    Junior Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Rimes Technologies (Shanghai, Shanghai (China)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview went with four stages: Secretary Phone Interview, Manager Phone Interview, A four-section Online Test, Onsite Interview.
    The onsite interview was rescheduled several times.
    To be honest, the interviewers were not that professional. The questions they asked were a bit tricky and the skype interview with the boss who was located in UK was not going well, the connection was not stable and the interview was interrupted several times.
    Anyway, it was not good experience to interview with rimes.

    Interview

    Met two interviewers, asked me a questions with a copy of my CV. Then one of the interviewers explained the position while the other interview looked through her phone. Very unprofessional. No feedback. No confirmation either way.

    Data Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Rimes Technologies (Shanghai, Shanghai (China)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied on line and get the phone interview after about 2 weeks. The HR was nice and asked the basic information about me. After several days they send an online test which include Multitask, Excel, and Logic. The multitask test is very stressful. It requires me answer math problems (which is easy but only have 1 minute for each question) and reply email at the same time. The excel is easy, but you only have to chance to click wrongly. (Highly recomend you google the right proccess before you click if you are not sure. The time is abundant. ) The Logic is eay, however, I am too sleepy then. I am going to a site interview tomorrow.

    Junior Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Rimes Technologies.

    Interview

    Initial contact established by HR. I was invited to do a test which was quite unusual but interesting experience. There were several sections, the excel one was a bit annoying because they had an old version and when you click on a potential answer the screen disappears and you can correct it. There was another multitasking part that was fun but very hard and a little stressful.

    After the test was finalized, HR contacted me again 2 weeks later (I wished it had been a little faster than that). I was invited to an interview for the following week.

    I met with several people, first 2 potential colleagues, then HR and then the line manager. I was sometimes asked the same question but they seemed to be on the same page.

    They were mainly trying to understand my background and see if I'm a good fit for the role. They asked why there were gaps in my professional experience, why I left a previous role, what are my plans, weakness and strengths, etc. They all gave me a bit of information and towards the end of the day I had a better understanding of RIMES and the role, which it's great. The one down side was the waiting time. I met HR and then had to wait in the room for 10-15 mins until the manager came in, so bring entertainment!

    One week later I received an email for a second interview. It was the last one. I went back to the office and met global management via teleconference (it was an interesting experience but can put you under pressure). I also met some of the partners and the line manager again. She had some tough questions seemingly unrelated to the role (Math quizz, geography question, small case study,...). Some of these questions didn't seem to have a right or wrong answer. I think they were testing the ability to cope with pressure, approach to solving problems and analytical skills.

    Overall the usual process, they showed respect for the candidate, turnaround time was ok (not great) and it gave me a good insight to what the role would be like
