    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Volt Information Sciences.

    Interview

    I received a VM from a recruiter who sounded so upbeat and interested in talking to me about a position. When I called back, he sounded monotone as if he was bored and didn't feel like speaking to me. He just rattled off a list of the job's details and asked me a couple of questions, but didn't ask me to come in to interview or offer to send me any skills assessment testing. He asked if I was interested in the position, I said yes, he said he would forward my resume and get back to me.

    A week later he calls me and acts as if he'd never discussed the position with me and talked about it again. The position required certain advanced Excel skills that he didn't bother to mention were necessary to do the job, as I found out later on. He asked what my skill level is and I replied intermediate. He sent an assessment test that didn't include the Excel functions/skills the employer was looking for.

    Long story short, I wasted my time having to do a face-to-face and a phone interview (in that order) with two people. It was obvious by the questions I was asked during both interviews regarding the necessary skills/experience needed to perform the job, I wasn't the right candidate. The recruiter mislead the employer about my Excel test assessment and mislead me about what the true job functions were. Also, communication is a joke when you're trying to reach them or when it comes to them providing you with information or following up on what they say they're going to do. AVOID!!!

    Interview

    There was a very short telephone interview. Following the telephone interview a face to face interview was scheduled with 2 employees of the company. It was a very informal interview with not a lot of questions regarding the actual on-site position. It consisted of very generic interview questions that could be answered easily if you have any sort of background in interviewing. Follow-up was very quick and they were great about staying in touch each step of the way.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Volt Information Sciences (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    The interview process was easy, talked to recruiter and talked to the VP. I did not hear back from the hiring manager but their recruiter asked me to fill out papers, called my references and said everything was a go. A week went by and she called me. She had been laid off after 18 years of service with zero advance notice and the VP that I interviewed with was let go to, he got one month advanced notice. Stay away from this company, they brought in a hatched man and paid him millions to lay off a large part of the population.
