    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakbrook Terrace, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at SIRVA (Oakbrook Terrace, IL).

    Interview

    Not a great first impression, they were friendly but were very disorganized. The HR Rep/ Recruiter that contacted me did not have much information to share about the role… I've not heard very good things about the company but decided to go forward with the interview to see for myself…no offer was given, no further communication was received after the face to face interview…no follow up.

    Global Assignment Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SIRVA in February 2016.

    Interview

    I had already interviewed with them several years ago. This time we only got through the initial phone interview and found out that the particular client they need someone for, requires a certain experience I don't have. But the interviewer was very nice. The questions were your standard behavioral questions, why you're interested, what you see your ideal job as, etc.

    Relocation Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SIRVA in November 2014.

    Interview

    The recruiter emailed me and tried to set up a time for a phone interview. We finally set up a date and time and then he never called. When I emailed him to follow-up he blamed it on another employee and didn't even apologize. By this point I had already realized what a joke this recruiter/company was but I went ahead and rescheduled a time for another phone interview. He called me ten minutes after our scheduled time and immediately told me that they were trying to fill the position by poaching someone from one of their competitors. I thought it was pretty bizarre that he would say that but he was entertaining so I stayed on the line. He then tried pushing me into a low-level position within the company that was located in a different state! I then ended the call and wished him the best of luck.
