    Java Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lincoln, NE
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Talent Plus (Lincoln, NE).

    Interview

    A long process followed by radio silence.

    They outsource the initial phone interview to a company I don't recall. That's fine I suppose, but be ready to get comfortable and answer a seemingly unending list of questions. There's no one category to the questions, as they range from things about your personality, hypothetical situations, and skill-related ones.

    After 4-5 days, during which I was told I would hear back from their HR, I called an left a message with a secretary for one of the managers I had been in touch with. After another 4-5 days I called again and left a message. I heard nothing after that point.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Talent Plus (Lincoln, NE) in May 2017.

    Interview

    There was a predetermined questions catalogue, where the interviewer could not say anything other than the question written down in front of them. Questions were fine, overall it felt like talking to a robot.

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lincoln, NE

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Talent Plus (Lincoln, NE) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Similar to other reviews on here. Long process with intermittent communication resulting in total ghosting. Unfortunately seems to be the way a lot of organizations are handling recruitment and selection. Should have read the warnings. The people I interviewed with were very nice, but the whole process was a definite turn off and perhaps an indication of what it's like to actually work there.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Talent Plus in May 2016.

    Interview

    2 hour phone interview. 1-10 scale, broad, objective questions. You may not ask the interviewer any follow up questions. Interviewer reads from a script and asked a few questions I did not understand. Interviewer will ask the same question repeatedly throughout the interview, but may use different terms. Overall good experience.

    Estee Lauder Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Talent Plus in January 2016.

    Interview

    The whole interview took about an hr and it was a bit uncomfortable only because when I was answering questions and the Lady was quite the whole time and couldn't ask her anything because she wouldn't answer it.
    I just feel that this interview was hard and don't feel that they can see what kind of personality you have with some questions that don't even go with the job. I was never asked estee lauder questions.

    Clinique Beauty Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Talent Plus (Winston-Salem, NC) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I already worked for Belk for a year and then decided I wanted to move to the cosmetics department. I got to skip a lot of the interviews (most people have to interview with the Cosmetics Department manager, the counter manager (i.e. Clinique Manager, Estee Lauder Manager), Talent Plus, and then Human Resources of Belk). I told the cosmetics manager I was interested in Cosmetics and she told me she would set me up with an interview at Clinique and I talked to the Clinique manager and she sent me through to talent plus immediately, so I only had one phone interview with Talent Plus that lasted 25 minutes. Part of the interview is how you interpret the questions. The person you are talking to can repeat the question, but cannot say anything off script.

    Associate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Talent Plus.

    Interview

    Many phone interviews involved in their process. I received a call from their initial contact which took about 15 minutes. It was a few general get to know you questions along with some of their guided interview questions. I was then told I would receive a call within 24 hours to schedule another interview.

    The second interview was a very nice woman who read the script she was given. It took about an hour and a half in total and seemed to be about 4 to 5 questions in a row that related to work ethic (honesty, integrity, positivity on a scale of 1 to 10 and/or tell me about a time you demonstrated this trait) and then a question that was a bit off topic such as a phrase you have memorized or what you do for fun, and then it would repeat. This process happens for the second interview as well, along with a writing assessment.
