    Entry Level Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at The Execu|Search Group (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I met with several different people at various levels within different divisions. I was there for about 3 hours, mostly because I had to keep waiting for the next interviewer to come in. Everyone was friendly and easy to talk to; overall it was a positive experience aside from how long I was there and had to wait for each employee to come in and speak with me.

    Staffing Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at The Execu|Search Group (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It was a long process that stretched a couple of weeks. They had me meet with several members of the firm on both the sales and recruiting side of the business and each person was a different level in the firm. While this was time consuming, looking back on it I think that it was helpful for me to get a feel for everyone. None of the interviews were intense and mostly laid back, getting to know you, and learning about why you should be hired.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Execu|Search Group (Boston, MA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with someone who had contacted me a quickly after I initially applied. I was told that they would be in touch around a month later and they were. I set up the phone interview for a week following the call to get in touch. The interview was very casual and not intimidating whatsoever. Interviewer was extremely nice and seemed truly interested in my experiences both professionally and personally.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Execu|Search Group (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Kind of really disappointed with the whole process. I was initially contacted by the corporate recruiter who was very pleasant to work with. We had a phone screen and everything went well; I was invited for a face to face interview. I then met with two different managers/directors for different services. Afterwards, I was given the choice for which service I would like to staff for. I was unsure, but regardless was asked to come to a second interview to meet with the VP and overall director of the service group. They really liked me, as it was expressed to me following the second interview. I was then asked to come in for a third and final interview/shadowing with the service director, for the services I did not choose. I was pretty certain that if they would have me come in to shadow and what basically seemed like a training session, that I would be selected as a candidate. Nope, they decided to go with someone else. Not only were the interviews so spread apart but they also convinced me that I pretty much had the job in the bag and that was not the case. To make matters worse, I had to follow up twice to see if I was chosen to be hired. Seriously, don't drag out the process so long if you know you're not going to hire the individual.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Execu|Search Group (New York, NY) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Web interview, initial call from recruiter she was chewing gum while speaking to me about setting up an web cam interview. 2nd interview, recruiter was over an hour late for the call and fumbled through the whole thing. Definitely wasn't prepared or do her homework to before the call. Discussed salary the day before and was asked about salary again during the 2nd call, stating, "Oh I wasn't aware that you were out of the salary range."

    Finally stated that she did not have a position to fit my pay range, this call was a waste of time.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Execu|Search Group (Waltham, MA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    After application, you get a phone call from their technical recruiter almost right away, like that same day (or the next). Then a skype is scheduled very quickly afterwards, and you go through what they are doing and what you are looking for to see if it's a fit. Then a few onsite interviews with management to see if you have the correct personality. Not much more than an hour or two.
