    Talent Acquisition Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lombard, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at The Roomplace (Lombard, IL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was professional and fluid. I met with three people in HR and another member of the business. The only issue is that I had to send an email to find out the status of my interview. This is when I found out that they went with another candidate. Also, when they did send an email to inform me I did not get the job it had a lot of grammar and misspelled words in it.

    The interview process was pretty straight forward. My first interview was with the hiring manager. She asked questions about my experience then more situational questions.
