    Premier Support Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Spherion (Las Vegas, NV) in October 2015.

    Interview

    This was the originally company that called me in regards to Asurion. I answered all the same questions. I set up an interview and then my mom was hospitalized. I gave Spherion ample notice (one day) and they never contacted me again. Apparently, no one can have a family emergency.

    Temp-to-hire Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Elkhart, IN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Spherion (Elkhart, IN) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The pre-interview work was simple and easy, however the interview was a little more aggravating. As soon as it was noted that I needed to have the Sabbath Day off, I was automatically dismissed. She quickly became passive-aggressive and refused to even finish the interview, because of my religious belief limitations. All I needed was 1 day off per week, but she refused to even attempt to accommodate that. This is what the government refers to as "religious discrimination in the workplace", and I'll be contacting the EEOC in regards to this. Apparently only atheists can work for this company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Spherion.

    Interview

    Called in to their office in down town Jax. Was asked for ID, references, and some other paperwork before the interview. Then, I actually met with the recruiter who called me in. Basic questions, nothing hard. The interview seemed to only last 10 minutes. 2 weeks later no follow up and no answer to follow up emails. Very unprofessional. I would not recommend.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Spherion (Austin, TX) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Played phone tag with remote office for a week and a half, finally got a face-to-face interview locally. Was extended a job offer, only to have it revoked less than three hours later, with no explanation. This was an exceptionally frustrating, misleading and disappointing experience. Once the process was over, it was as if I never existed; I received no further response from either office.
