    BI Report Developer Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at TransPerfect (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for the Business Intelligence Report Developer position with Transperfect. After the first interview with the hiring manager, which went very well, the recruiter decided to proceed with the next steps only if I agreed with their target salary. It was $25k below the upper salary range that she had indicated. Before the interview, I had stated my desired rate, which was within the salary range the recruiter had indicated. I said that there wasn't a huge difference between my desired rate and the target rate, and that I would like to know more about the job position. The recruiter proceeded with insisting on requesting my salary history. After politely refusing to disclose this information, I received a cold email saying "We will not be able to move forward at this time". It was one of the most unprofessional interactions I've ever had. No one is obligated to disclose their salary history during an interview process.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at TransPerfect (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    First talked to the recruiter: very nice and friendly, but the overall process was kind of slow. I talked to the recruiter in January, took the first assessment in February, but didn't hear back from him until March (hiring season for Transperfect). After that, had a phone interview with the program director who pointedly asked some questions regarding my strengths and weaknesses and why I want to join Transperfect

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at TransPerfect (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    As expected; they called me first for an informal phone interview and then we had a second formal phone interview. It was conducted like a casual conversation but we stayed on topic, talking about job expectations and my background/experience.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at TransPerfect (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The whole interview process first began with a simple phone screen, then came up with a written test. After passing these two steps, I was invited to do an on-site interview with two managers. About two days later, I was told to do a final round interview with another production manager. After all these were done, I was told to wait for their decision, but nobody answered me ever since.

    Project Manager/Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at TransPerfect (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for a Project Manager position. I had an initial phone interview with a recruiter. While speaking with her, she said, "You are so personable and bubbly on the phone. I can't imagine you being stuck behind a computer all day when you're so great with people. Have you heard about our Account Executive position?"
    I said, "Yes, I read the description. It doesn't look like a good fit for me. It looks to be very focused on prospecting for clients. I once had a job where I did the same thing, and I left because I don't like doing that." The recruiter says, "Oh, no, no, no! The Account Executive wouldn't be prospecting for new clients AT ALL. They would be ONLY working with existing clients."
    She completely sells me on this position, so I agree to apply. She sets up an in-person interview with the Accounts Manager. I take time off of work to go on this interview.
    When I get there, he is cold AF. He said he had "hardly looked" at my resume. I noted that I was interested in the position as it dealt with existing clients and didn't involve prospecting.
    What did he say? "No. The Account Executive position is ALL about prospecting for new clients." And he goes on to detail about the prospecting involved.
    For some reason (keeping an open mind and refraining from closing doors on people/companies, I suppose), I follow up with the recruiter about the Project Manager position. No response. Go figure.
    One, it was a huge waste of time. Two, they don't know their right feet from their left. Three, the office is sad. No natural light. The ladies at the front are unhappy with their jobs.

    Interview

    Bland, they asked very simple questions but the demands were ridiculous. They're purposely abusing the salary loophole. They want you to work 10+ hours a day when you really only get paid 8. Completely unethical.
