    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SHI International (Newark, NJ) in September 2016.

    Interview

    This was an initial phone interview with their recruiter. He was pleasant and confirmed he was screening applicants. He called approximately one week after I submitted my application. The posting I originally spotted was a couple of weeks old though I ran across an earlier posting for the same role that was over 2 months old.

    Inside Account Executive Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at SHI International (Austin, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It was an easy interview, essentially all they ask is that you explain your resume. It is important to note that they are looking for individuals who they think are competitive. It is a very laid back atmosphere and a young environment. I was not very interested in the position and I think they could tell I did not really consider it a career option, because of the low base salary..

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SHI International (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Phone with HR, then in person with hiring manager. Still have not heard back from HR even after 3 weeks from in person interview, would be nice if internal HR would get back to you on updates as I expect the lack of communication from staffing firms...

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SHI International in April 2009.

    Interview

    The interview process is very direct on technical problem solving and approach. I was presented with a few technical issues and asked how I would solve them. This is very different from most companies today which use behavioral interview. One observation is that the employees feel like a big family.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at SHI International.

    Interview

    I met with the District manager first at an off-site location. This seems to be common practice for SHI. I had interview #2 at the office and met the rest of the team. Interview #3 was a phone interview with the head of HR and the final interview was with the Director of Sales. I also submitted to a background check.

    Interview Questions

    • What is the top quality that you possess that separates you from the other candidates? And your second quality? Be prepared for the follow-up on questions. Most people only prepare for their top quality or single reason, but they definitely go deeper than that.   Answer Question
