    Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Urban Lending Solutions (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Short and bitter. The recruiter requested I show up 15 mins early, and the interviewers showed up 30 minutes late. The project, people I was meeting with, and job title did not match the information the recruiter had sent over. The interviewers interrupted me answering a question they asked, in order to talk about themselves more than they already had. One of the interviewers described in length why she didn't have more responsibility despite her experience, attributing it to a "brain injury." The entire process felt like it was causing me brain damage. I couldn't picture how in the world these people would develop me as an employee, and their most probing questions were related to how I would fire someone. I would have walked out of the interview, had it not ended within 20 minutes.

    SQL Database Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Broomfield, CO

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Urban Lending Solutions (Broomfield, CO) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Urban currently has a mid-level database position open for over 3mos in Colorado, why is that you might ask? Because they string along their candidates until they give up.

    I was working with a recruiting company, CyberCoders, to apply for this position, we had a good exchange during the interviews and ULS wanted to hire me the day of the final interview. We agreed to compensation and ULS's HR & Legal Dept were working with CC to hammer out the details and produce the offer letter. It turned out that ULS's HR group had been out of town for the last 2wks and the CC's recruiter was fairly green so the two groups had not come to terms for CC's fee. Needless to say the two groups could not come to an agreement because of some unrealistic guarantees ULS was requesting. Now who is left in the middle? Ah, yes, right.

    So as any technical person would do in this situation, I proceeded to work around the problem. I met with the Information Systems Manager and a Staffing & Compensation VP to see how we could still make this work. We came up with a plan and I was passed off to a senior recruiter within ULS.

    This person had no idea what was going on and proceeded as though I was just another candidate. I was told I would be placed back in the formal interview process and I was asked how far along in the process we made it then asked if I was looking at other opportunities. I confirmed I was and that until I receive the Offer Letter I would have to and the S.R. told me "Well we have a few other candidates to interview and we will get back to you." Wow, I didn't know we were exclusively seeing each other. Seems to be a lot of personal issues that these employees bring to work.

    We then setup a phone interview appointment for that Thurs. because my schedule was fairly booked on that Tues & Wed. After that phone call I freed some time on Tues & Wed to speak with the manager and no reply.

    Thurs came and went with no communication so I emailed the S.R. Her reply was that the manager had not requested a phone call with me and she would get back to me on Friday??!! What kind of BS is this?, I'm thinking the really smelly kind, the kind that sets off all the alarms for a crap company.

    To make a long story a little longer, I sent all of them an email about the moronic hoops and withdrew my application.

    Please, please, if you value your career, stability, and your sanity Do Not work in the IT or HR departments. I hope this review helps you avoid the bald spot that I now have.

    Moved fairly quickly but that was 3+ years ago. People have changed and to tell you the truth they probably don't interview for jobs much anymore since there aren't any.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Urban Lending Solutions.

    Interview

    Very brief .. Essentially "checked for a pulse" .. Interviewer had no knowledge of my resume / skill sets. The interviewer was unprepared and appeared to be conducting interview "on the fly" .. I later realized that I was part of a mass hiring & that urban was basically looking to fill chairs & had no real interest in my career and / or professional skills

    Interview Questions

    • The interview was so generic and brief, no "real" questions where asked -   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Non existent - basically "take it or leave it"
