    Recruiting Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Rylem (Seattle, WA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    After being submitted by an internal recruiter I went through a pair of phone screens (recruiter and hiring manager) before coming to an on-site interview with 7 other candidates. We were given some information about Boolean strings and asked to study up on it. The hiring manager gave us a job description and asked us to write a couple strings for them. We took some time to get to know the others in our group and then had a couple 15-minute sessions with some internal employees (very helpful!).

    Interview Questions

    • Do you prefer doing research or talking on the phone?
      How would you compose a Boolean string to search for a candidate for this job?

    Technical Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Rylem (Seattle, WA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Super chill - really easy to talk to everyone. It wasn't the most formal of experiences. You just get assigned a room and a stream of 5 or 6 current employees ask you a set of questions (HR, recruiters, maybe an owner). You're interviewing with ALL potential candidates, so you get to meet your competition. You get snacks and a break to interact and mingle with everyone.

    Interview Questions

    • - What does "technology" mean to you?
      - What is the difference between an 'active' and a 'passive' candidate?
      - What was your favorite Halloween costume?

      ...and all the other generic interview questions you can think of

    There was an initial phone screen, that was just me and the recruiting coordinator. Then an in-person loop on site in the office in Pioneer Square. I first met with 2 people at once (Coordinator & Manager), then a 1:1(Sr. Partner). The phone screen was straight forward, the in-person was more behavioral.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Rylem (Seattle, WA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    One phone screen, a group interview that lasted about an hour where we tackled some sourcing exercises as a group, then we split off into individuals and had a rotating interview with 4 or 5 internal employees. It was fun and fairly quick!

    Candidate for Manager Role At Their Client Company Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Rylem (Seattle, WA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Was recruited via LinkedIn. Cold calls don't often play out, but I was impressed to be contacted almost immediately after responding to their email. The phone recruiter asked good screening questions that included specifics of their client company and the role they sought to fill. I was scheduled for an in-person appointment for the next day. I then met with four members of their team. While some people find a panel interview difficult, I appreciated the time efficiency of that approach. They were very clear about next steps in presenting me to the client company.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Rylem.

    Interview

    A recruiter for Amazon approached me about some job opportunities. I went through three phone interviews with Amazon and heard nothing back. About a week later a person at Rylem emailed me saying her colleague at Amazon had given her my information and she told me I didn’t get the position at Amazon. You can imagine I was upset. I found out through a third party that I didn’t get a job at Amazon and that my personal CONFIDENTIAL information had been given out by Amazon to a third party. Rylem has inside people at Amazon feeding them confidential information on candidates. This must be part of the unethical practices that I see other reviews on.
