    A contract recruiter called from California about an outside sales position in Austin. I interviewed face to face next day with regional manager at local branch office in North Austin . I then had a phone interview with my would be direct manager two days later. The phone interview was pleasant and very conversational. It appeared to bea formality. Hr then called and asked for me to do drug and driving background checks. I was offered the job within 5 days of initial call. It would have been sooner if my schedule had availability for the phone call. All in all a smooth process and very transparent.

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Terminix.

    Interview

    I had a very good experience. I applied on indeed.com. Within an hour, I had a recruiter call me within 45 minutes of submitting my resume. Recruiter was very polite asked me about my background and goal. (I have ten years experience in sales, construction project management). That seemed too impress her. Then she scheduled a face to face interview with the Branch manager. Later that day a hr manager asked me several questions such as , my goals, my past experiences with customers, what I think I can do to be productive for the company. And my philosophy on customer service and sales.

    The interview with branch manager went in his words perfect. I had all the right answers, and asked perfect questions and had the background he was looking for. The manager said at the end of the interview I'm forwarding your resume to the regional manager.

    About a week later I had a phone interview with the regional manager. It went well the manager asked me several questions. He asked mostly asked me questions about managing employees, my philosophy of disciplining employees. Also training employees. It went well he liked all my philosophies and experiences. He said he would love for me to join his team. So then the recruiter scheduled a final interview with the hr manager.

    The hr manager interview went great. She asked very specific employee discipline actions. How would I handle irate employees, and insubordinate employees. She seemed to be impressed. She said she would have the recruiter get back to me.

    About three days I E-mailed the recruiter and said I'm excited about the opportunity and would love to join the team. Then she said congrats we want you. I was stoked. She sent me for a drug screen, then 2 days later i had the offer letter.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Terminix (Glendale, AZ) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an interview the next day. The recruiter specified that the interview would be business professional. Upon my arrival, I was the only one dressed in business professional attire. Everyone from the front desk personnel to other employees were dressed in everyday clothes. I suppose they just wanted to see who would actually go the extra mile! The interview process was a series of questions about naming and describing a particular situation. The two people who interviewed me seemed like they did not even really want to be conducting the interview, like they had way more important things to be doing. Which is probably true. They were helpful in answering my questions, but none too friendly which was a little disappointing. Less than an hour later I received a call and a job offer. I accepted.
