    Account Manager Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Pretty easy interview, interviewed with three different people. Very nice and outgoing people. Don't know why I didn't get the job. They were looking for people with a lot of past sales experience. Still had a good experience though and it wasn't very stressful. There office is in downtown which is neat because it is in the NASCAR hall of fame basically. They all asked me about myself, so basically I did an elevator speech three different times. They called me back about a week later with no offer

    Technical Recruiter Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at The Select Group in September 2016.

    Interview

    The first interview was a phone interview with a recruiter that contacted me through LinkedIn. I then interviewed through skype with the same recruiter. Following that, I was scheduled to meet at the local office and interview on site. That interview was very relaxed. Following the interview segment, I sat and listened in on a call or two made by a current recruiter. The fourth and final interview was short- literally 10 minutes at the most. I would say this was really a very negative experience. Unfortunately, I contacted the recruiter following the interview and was given a short response and then never heard back from that person for over a week- after being promised an answer in a couple of days. I then followed up with the recruiter once more and was sent straight to voicemail. After a couple of days of waiting was then told I didn't have the right background- this process could have been 90% shorter had someone actually read my resume.

    IT Technical Recruiter Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Select Group (San Jose, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Talked with manager and recruiter at a job fair and gave resume. Then they connected me through text message and posted an instragram about it, tagging me. Set up the interview through text message and was required to take a personally test before the interview. The interview was nothing different from any other place. Then afterwards, they seem to like the quality I had to offer and my skill set, so went to the office and shadowed what the position would entitle and over a overview of the company. And thats it.

    Interview

    I was recruited for a job with The Select Group after dropping my resume at a career fair. After receiving several calls from a recruiter with the company, I set up an interview. Prior to the interview, I was asked to take a DISC assessment. When my scores came back with lower than average competitiveness, my recruiter called to inform me that it didn't bode well for me and to be prepared to answer for that. I was also told I'd have two interviews with both a branch and regional manager. Upon arriving, I was promptly taken in to interview with the branch manager who halfheartedly spent 5 minutes asking me a few questions and then sent me on my way. I was informed by my recruiter that I would not be moved forward in the process a few days later. I thanked her, and asked for any feedback from my interview that I could use to improve moving forward, which was met with "There was nothing negative written." Essentially, I was written off before having set foot in the office because of a personality test.

    Cisco Project Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Select Group (Fairfax, VA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    It was a NIGHTMARE. I landed the job with Cisco, but the account management staff was so utterly incompetent, they ruined the opportunity for me. FYI-99% of their employees have NO IT TECHNICAL BACKGROUND-most are former cheerleaders, waitresses, bartenders, and hotel front desk clerks. I was even brushed off by the account manager during the onboarding process by her telling me "I'm booked up in yoga all week. Can you call [name withheld] instead?"...

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Select Group (Raleigh, NC) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Start with a phone interview, then in-person, sometimes a third interview - used words such as competitive a lot - definitely a sales position, 35k base, plus commission, two week boot camp intensive training, competitive work environment, strict metrics

    This position wasn't for me and the company could tell. I was not happy sitting at a desk making phone calls and emails all day and that seemed to be the position at least for the first year or so. They did say there were opportunities to grow within the company but this didn't seem like the type of company I'd stay with longer than a year or two. Just not for me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at The Select Group in December 2015.

    Interview

    Skype first round interview, started off normal with basic interview questions but became pretty personal and unprofessional. A lot of questions prying into conversations with other companies repeatedly. Also, I was told by the interviewer herself I didn't ask enough personal questions although I asked about the industry and company, which I considered most important. The interviewer made it very evident that this company is extremely competitive and basically dog-eat-dog (basic overly aggressive sales role). By the end she told me she can't gage my competitiveness and doesn't think I am competitive enough for the role essentially... although representing that isn't very feasible on a one on one brief Skype interview. Some of the questions felt too personal and overall unprofessional.
