    Interview

    The process went just fine. After a brief phone interview with Alex, he submitted my resume for the position. He gave me ample notice of the phone interview with the employer, so I had plenty of time to prepare. The phone interview went as expected.

    Interview Questions

    • In the interview I was asked the standard questions about my experience and qualifications for the position for which I was applying. Alex at Swoon had previously emailed me information about the position, so I was prepared to answer questions from the employer.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Swoon.

    Interview

    It is a longer interview process starting with a phone interview, leading to a one on one face interview, then meeting with team leads, and finally the leaders. They are focused on finding the “right fit” that will adapt well in the already established culture, and will add value to the future of Swoon.

    Interview Questions

    • Like any interview the questions can be difficult at times; make sure you can specifically address behavioral questions with strong examples. As previously mentioned, Swoon is really looking for a strong fit for not only the position but the culture - do not be intimidated by the multiple interviews and be authentic throughout the entire process.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Swoon (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Came into office and met with internal hiring manager. Was asked regular interview questions and got along really well with her. She could tell I was hesitant about the role so she was very upfront with me about all the responsibilities and work that would be expected of me.
    I ended up no longer wanting to pursue that position afterwards. She was very understanding and told me to check back in when I wanted a new job.

    IT Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Swoon (Chicago, IL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    It started with a phone interview with Samantha Balaton. Shortly after I was brought in for a face to face interview. This was a great session as our interview turned into more of a conversation and lasted the better half of an hour. I then was brought in to meet with the Team Lead Spencer Riley who Samantha thought I would be a great fit for. This turned out to be another fantastic meeting. Not only were his questions well thought out but he was very open to hearing my ideas and perspective on the matter. I finally got my final interview with the President of the company Andy Baker. This was a bit on the shorter side but just as meaningful. Andy had a very dry sense of humor, so it took me a minute to understand that he wasn't making fun of me but making fun with me. All in all the process was excellent. I got a great impression of the kind of people who worked there and why they are one of the highest rated technical recruitment firms in the US. I personally think that this was the best interview process I have been through even if it was a bit lengthy. They were very accommodating to my work schedule and their questions were not at all generic; "tell me about a time..." was never said during any of the meets.
