    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    The interview started with a brief phone call to see if I met the minimum requirements for the position. The in face-to-face interview was more in depth and lasted about an hour. The interview consisted of a combination of work history and behavior focused questions. The work history questions consisted of the typical where did I work, how long, and what my responsibilities were. The behavior questions consisted of how I handled a disagreement with my manager, how I would handle a project team member that is consistently turning in late work, and how I would handle a project that is in danger of running over budget. The interview then turned to salary negotiations and hiring for the position.

    Warehouse Receiver Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sacramento, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Volt Information Sciences (Sacramento, CA) in July 2013.

    Interview

    The hiring process was a pain. It took 3 weeks after the orientation to bring me in for the first day on the job.They granted me the position but kept giving me the run around about when my actual start date would be. Very unprofessional staffing agency. They don't take complaints seriously. I had to urge them to finally give me a specific starting date before they actually called me in for "additional training." keep in mind it was a mindless job. HR was the worst, they did not handle any employees concerns with the least standard of conduct.

    There was one phone interview with the hiring manager, followed by live interviews with the hiring manager and 2 members of the team.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Volt Information Sciences (San Francisco, CA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    It was a group interview. I think they were checking to make sure we were breathing. As a lead generator or call center rep - they want to know that you understand what the day will look like i.e. you will sit at a desk all day to make your numbers. They want to know that you can follow a script and not sound like it. They want to know that you understand there will be quotas to meet.
