    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Swoon.

    Interview

    Their internal recruiter found me on Linkedin. I had a 30 minute phone screen with her. Then I had an interview in the office and met with 3 different people. Then the third interview was in the office and there was probably 4 other people and I was instructed to give a Power Point presentation. Although I was very nervous, their recruiter prepped me for the Power Point and the guidelines were extremely clear!

    They asked very typical interview questions and were very interested on understanding my experience and hiring a good culture fit for their company!

    Everyone was extremely nice, knowledgeable and positive.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Swoon in March 2017.

    Interview

    Applied via LinkedIn. Got an email that day to schedule a phone interview, scheduled for the next day. Phone interview lasted about an hour, it went incredibly well. I was offered a Skype interview but told I needed to take a Written Assessment and was sent a Google Doc link. The link was actually for the admin user to create the Writing Assessment, not the assessment itself. I emailed a Word Doc with my responses and let them know about the issue, they did not respond. I emailed them to confirm our Skype interview time, they did not respond. I called multiple times and left two messages to the recruiter I was speaking to and neither were returned.

    I have been turned down for jobs, but I have never been completely ignored before. I am sure the company is great, but that is by far the most unprofessional thing I have ever come across.

    Business Development Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Swoon (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    3-step process. Brief phone interview, Skype interview, and third interview if selected at HQ. Interview process with recruiter was very good - they dig deep into you as a person and I feel they give you a fair chance to express yourself individually. The recruiter was very friendly, out-going, and really took the time to consider a bigger picture. The only con is that I would have liked to know up front if there were already strong candidates who completed final interviews days before I had interviewed. I would also have preferred more actual feedback even if it was negative in context or things that I could work on for improvement to be considered in the future. Part of going through an interview process is self-discovery and self-improvement.

    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.

    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.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Swoon.

    Interview

    Built a relationship with the recruiter - Sam Balaton

    Initially interviewed in June, they accommodated me by doing it over Skype. Was not offered a position, but Sam wanted to keep in touch. She had me visit the office while I was in town and had me speak to a team leader. Sam contacted me as soon as a new job opening had opened and scheduled me for another interview.
    Sam is the only recruiter I have been able to be completely open and honest with because she treated me the same way. I always thought highly of Swoon while I was interviewing at other places and am very grateful that she kept in touch with me to get me hired here.
