    IT Administrator Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at S.P. Richards (New York, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    It all started off with phone screen with the manager of the department. That seemed to go very well so they asked me to come in for a F2F interview. I went in a few days later and met the manager and a member of the team I would be working with and they seemed like they would be a good group to join. The projects they described appeared to be challenging. Then came the HR meeting. This was the only problem I encountered is that HR seemed to treat me like I were a robot or an automaton. I really felt like I was being processed in a factory like something rolling off the assembly line. I half way expected to hear them yell "next" as I exited the building. That experience alone had me pass on the job. I feel like there are just too many IT jobs to get stuck in a job where HR treats employees like this.

    Developer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at S.P. Richards (Smyrna, GA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview then in person interview with 4 people. Each person had a different role on the team, so it was a nice variety. Questions were typical - give me an example of when you... The people I interviewed with were very nice. The technical person was very knowledgeable and asked good questions about skills. It seemed it would be a good place to work, but when probing about the technical environment, it appeared to be very outdated. One of their projects had been going on for 5 years and still hadn't been delivered. When asked about processes in place, there didn't seem to be a methodology or best practices for software development.

    Supervisor Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at S.P. Richards (Indianapolis, IN) in February 2012.

    Interview

    I have worked with this company for quite awhile doing the multiple duties that the warehouse has. When the previous supervisor was fired, the company started teaching me the a lot of the duties of the supervisor position. I worked my butt off and learned a lot of new stuff just to be let down by the GM saying "the outside competition is tough". Come to find out they brought in a new person from the outside. I feel like i was a horse with a carrot dangling in front of me. The management here has always talked about the great oppurtunities in the company, and yet they would rather bring someone else in with no experience in the company or years of hard work put in. It is very frustrating and i don't think the upper management know what these kind of decisions make the employees think of them.
