    Consultant Junior Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Solucom.

    Interview

    First interview with the HR. Difficult interview, asked me many questions reflecting on my previous experiences, what I would improve about my previous experiences, why I made the educational/career choices I made, etc. The interviewer did not seem at all interested in what I had to say and kept looking at her phone. She then explained the Solucom Way and how the HR has a policy to follow up with every interviewee after every step on the interview process. She told me I would be contacted in one week with a positive or negative answer as well as a follow up discussion.

    2 weeks later she sent me a short email saying I was not accepted, and that she would call me the next day.

    No call from her. Over the next few days I sent her an email, called her several times and left her voice messages.

    In total it has been 3 weeks and never a call back from her. What a pity because I was extremely interested in Solucom but it seems like they are not a company of their word.

    Consultant Junior Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Puteaux (France)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Solucom (Puteaux (France)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    1) Phone interview with headhunter
    2) HR interview with a consultant
    Didn't go through the rest of the process.
    The HR interview seemed to went well, but actually the consultant didn't understand what I said but she didn't make an effort to make the communication better. Also I suspect that some of the questions are not so much related to my profile but more related to what my previous employers do, so I set up a trap, and she jumped right into it.
    Got the debriefing 2 weeks later, much longer than it should be (less than 1 week).
    They are interviewing like 20 candidates per day. Never seen that before.

    Final Year Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Interview

    There were two interviews, one with an HR representative and one with a senior manager from the practice chosen during the first interview.
    They contacted me very quickly after I submitted my resume on the website. The whole interview process was personalized with one HR referral from the beginning to the final debriefing.
    If you make it to the second interview, you are asked to write a summary of the two interviews you had, so taking notes during the process is recommended.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Solucom (Paris (France)).

    Interview

    1 er entretien téléphonique avec une RH qui m'expose ses motivations à me rencontrer sans entendre les miennes. Rdv manager constamment repousé pour finir dans une salle d'attente avec près de 30 candidats pour le même poste et me retrouver face à un manager qui m'explique qu'il est désolé pour moi car lui mise sur les profils ingénieurs ( mon CV stipule pourtant que je suis d'une ESC).
    Mauvaise expérience me concernant je ne déconseille cependant pas l'entreprise aux autres. Je suis simplement tombé sur un manager indisposé à recruter et les RH ont des objectifs d'entretiens donc ne vous faites pas de faux espoirs
