    Contracts Specialist Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Smith & Nephew (Memphis, TN) in July 2008.

    Interview

    I worked through a recruiter since HR doesn't do as much with resumes received straight from the website. I had a phone interview with the hiring manager. This interview lasted roughly 45 minutes. I explained my experience and education level. It was also an opportunity to ask questions about the company and department.

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate a higher salary. This company lowballs everyone. Don't take the lower amount. They also do negotiate vacation time but don't tell anyone.
