    Employee Services Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Charlotte, NC

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Spectrum (Charlotte, NC) in June 2020.

    Interview

    I filled out an application and about two weeks later I received a call from a recruiter. The conversation was short and she was extremely friendly. After our brief conversation she let me know I would be receiving a call to set up an interview with the supervisor. I interviewed the same week with the supervisor and a team lead. The interview was over the phone and very laid back. Both interviewers were down to earth which put my mind at ease. I had a second interview with the manager of the department today and he was awesome. He made me feel comfortable and the conversation lasted about 30 minutes. About 2 or so hours later I received a phone call from the recruiter extending an offer. The overall process was great. Each person I spoke with was friendly, professional, and made me feel like a part of the team before I even received an offer.

    Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Spectrum.

    Interview

    Applied on internal website and was contacted by a recruiter. I spoke with this same recruiter a year prior regarding a different position but never heard back from them after our initial conversation. I should have taken this as a hint the first go around.
    I had a second interview with the Director and team lead over the phone. It was a nice conversation and provided me with more detail regarding the role and responsibilities. Next, I had a third interview with three team members. One team member was a bit derogatory in their line of questioning and I did not receive a very good impression overall of the working environment. I was made to feel like a number and not a candidate and immediately knew this was not going to be a good fit after the last interview. I was told I would be contacted one way or the other when a decision was made. Three or four weeks later I received a generic email stating the position had been cancelled due to a change in business goals.

    Interview

    The hiring took awhile, about 1 month. A lot longer than expected. HR didn’t communicate with me during the process. The interview was with the store manager and it was simple and asked general interview questions.

    Interview

    July 2020. I applied for the outdoor sales rep position. I was almost immediately contacted by a recruiter to schedule an interview. After my ten minute interview with a recruiter, the area sales manager called hours later to offer me the job, explain more about the job title and answer any of my questions. He was very nice and transparent about the job.

    Security Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Spectrum.

    Interview

    Due to COVID restrictions, it was all conducted online. It consisted of an initial phone screen with a recruiter, who asked about motivations for applying, discussed the company, and allowed for questions from the applicant. The second interview was with the hiring manager and a principal engineer. The third interview was with the principal engineer and a few more team members. The third interview did broach some technical aspects, but generally wasn't anything outside of the norm. After the third interview, I was approached by the recruiter informing me that the company has gone a different direction and is choosing not to fill the position, and for me to apply to a different opening while reiterating that I was still in the running for a position. I was then ghosted by the recruiter.

    Interview

    I received a phone call from the HR department to set up a video interview. During the video interview I meet with two people who never turned on their cameras. It was difficult to read their reactions to my answers just from their voices. I am not sure if they follow up after the interview to let you know if you are moving forward to the next step. I did not get a follow up.
