    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SGS (Parsippany, NJ).

    Interview

    The interview process consist of a phone screening, and an onsite in person interview.
    You will have the chance to meet up with the hiring manager, and the team if all goes well on the phone interview. HR person is extremely nice and polite. The hiring manager is also very nice and helpful with answering all my questions. However, I thought her colleague was quite rude. My answers were keep getting cut off. I dont think I would want to work for him even this job pays me 20k more than what I am making now...

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SGS (Wichita, KS).

    Interview

    A one sided phone call asking about my experience. That was it. HR called first saying that a manager would call. That was months after I applied. Then the manager called wanting background information. Its was very brief with little to no information about the job or any details. Just a your hired. Then a long series of emails that didn't make any sense.

    Field Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at SGS in January 2017.

    Interview

    This was the most impersonal, disorganized interview I have ever experienced. The woman behind the desk brought me into another room for an "interview" where I was expecting someone to be waiting, but instead she proceeded to give me a 5 minute synopsis of the job at another desk and didn't ask a single question about my work ethic or anything on my resume. I struggled to find things to say and keep the interview going, and just when I thought it was time to go, she asks, "So do you want the job?" Major red flag. Either they can't keep anyone in this position or they can't find anyone else to take it. It was a terrible first impression and I turned it down.

    Interview

    The interview was very confusing and nothing but lies. I was told there would be regular pay raises, that was a lie. I was told I would get a car allowance, that was a lie. I was told my work area would be within 15 miles of home except when other inspectors were out, that was a lie... nothing but deception.

    Interview Questions

    • Was I ok with a lower pay as long as I got the car allowance to make up for it?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Again, nothing but lies. I was duped and I can't quit until I find a new job.

    Invoicing Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at SGS in July 2016.

    Interview

    The hiring process here seems very chaotic. Weeks after applying I was emailed to schedule a phone interview. I sent my availability and it came and went with no call. I sent further availability and was later called by a different person to arrange the phone interview. The phone interview was fine but consisted of all typical interview questions. Weeks later I was called to attend an in person interview. This was with two other employees and was a casual chat with very few questions. I was told I would hear back one way or the other the next day but did not. After a week passed I emailed to check on the position and was met with a very unprofessional email that said they were going to interview for two more weeks and let me know at another certain date. The second date also came and went with no word on the position.
