    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Spencer Ogden.

    Interview

    Applied for one job, was called about a different job. Received a follow up phone call where they discussed other candidates I may know? Then they never called back. I'd use the word unprofessional and disorganized.

    Consultant/Recruiter Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Spencer Ogden (Denver, CO) in December 2016.

    Interview

    It's pretty amazing that one can do several interviews, spend numerous hours in conversations in total, all way up through finals, and then not hear anything back from this company.

    As a basic professional courtesy across any industry sector, it seems fairly standard to relay feedback (good, bad or ugly) within an expected time frame and not just go radio silent.

    If this is a benchmark on how they treat counter-parties in general, I would warrant caution to all potential clients, candidates, or recruiters considering them as an employer. Just my two cents.

    Recruiter Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Spencer Ogden (Houston, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The process took a couple of days. The recruiter contacted me about a brief phone call, then we set up an in person interview. The interview lasted about 2 hours. The recruiter told me they would probably want me to come back the next day and that she would be in contact with me by the end of the day, as the role was supposed to start the following Monday. After not hearing back, I reached out to the recruiter and never heard back.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Spencer Ogden (Houston, TX) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Started with a brief phone interview. Went in for two additional interviews over the next week. Typical interview process with standard questions. Not too difficult. They really wanted to accelerate the hiring process. Met with 5-6 different managers in one day and all had same questions/comments.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Spencer Ogden (Houston, TX) in February 2014.

    Interview

    They brought me into the office which is a big open room with everyone working out in the open. I sat in the only secluded office and waited to meet the internal recruiter. After meeting the internal recruiter I waited to meet with 4 other employees (team leaders, team members). at the end of the interview i meet with the office director and answer the same questions for a 5th time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Spencer Ogden (Houston, TX) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I sent my resume and a follow up email and received a call back within a few hours. The gentleman on the phone was incredibly nice and answered all my questions. After my initial phone screening, I was asked to read a few articles printed about the company and call the same person back if I was still interested in the job. I called back and talked to the same gentleman and he decided to set up a Skype interview with one of the directors at the Houston office several days later. I would classify that interview as hostile as the director made a habbit of pointing out how I wasn't a good fit for the job and seeing how I reacted. I apparently kept my cool, because I was asked to drive to Houston for an in person interview. There I spoke with two other directors who asked questions ranging from very general to philosophical. I was told at the end of the interview to go home and really think about the job and if it was something I wanted to do. Recruiting is a hard, often painful job, and every person I spoke with at Spencer Ogden wanted to make sure that I knew what I was getting into. I never called them back and they never contacted me again. They made no attempt to reimburse me for my trip to Houston (a four hour drive and overnight stay), but I also never asked them to. They also made a point to say that anyone could do this job as long as they wanted to and that my high GPA from a top university wasn't impressive in this industry.

    The office was incredibly modern and a little bizarre. Everyone was dressed like Wall Street floor traders and talking on wireless headsets.

    This simply wasn't the type of job I saw myself enjoying.

    Interview Questions

    • One of the younger, but obviously very successful, directors got really philosophical with his questioning. I was warned about this by the previous interviewer and it was funny how right he was. None of the questions were particularly hard, but the gentleman seemed to be really proud of his peculiar methods.   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Spencer Ogden (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    On campus interview -- two men who were EXTREMELY rude and PRETENTIOUS. Asked insulting PERSONAL questions that had nothing to do with the job. (what does your dad do)

    Totally crossed the line when it came to professionalism... furthest thing from professional I've experienced. The interview was not an interview it was an attack on your character. They pointed out all of your flaws to see how you would react.

    Although they were "impressed with my responses" and told me "most people crumble in this interview" I made it to the next round....But I had absolutely no desire to continue in the process or work for this company.

    They need to sort out some sort of standard recruiting system -- my interview "experience" felt an absolute joke.

    Interview Questions

    • I guess why Sales? Then once you answer they will tell you everything WRONG about you and sales. Even though they actually like you? Bizzare.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Spencer Ogden (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Many hours out of my time with phone calls and face to face interviews. Dubious from start reminded me of dealing with bad estate agents with massive egos. Very unprofessional ending. Not surprised.

    Interview Questions

    • Didn't get a word in edge ways with this internal recruiter who only wanted to talk about himself. Best way to describe this company is all fur coat and no knickers. Certainly didn't live up to the values they harped on about in my candidate experience. Refused to give any feedback just got blanked after being courted for weeks. Good one.   Answer Question
