    Human Resources Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Wolters Kluwer (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Phone screened by a recruiter, then phone screened by HR leader. I followed up with recruiter after a week (of second phone screen) to check status of phone screen and did not receive a response. A month later and I have still not received a response to my follow-ups, nor have they bothered sending me any communication. That's an unfortunate presentation of their hiring process because I really enjoyed learning about the company and the opportunity.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wolters Kluwer (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    3 person interview, to the point about skills and comfortability. Knew exactly what I was getting into. There were a few situational questions, but mostly they wanted to know about my past employment, my future goals, my typing speed and problem solving capabilities. They want to know you can learn fast and accurately.

    Researcher II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Wolters Kluwer (Houston, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I was asked to call the company for a phone interview. I spent most of the interview asking the interviewer questions. She did not have nearly as many questions for me. I was interested in the unique problems the company faces, what types of people I would be working with (Lawyers/paralegals/etc), how the interviewer enjoyed her employment, how the company defines success, if there were opportunities for continuing training and education, and if they offered benefits. I asked if any of the contract was negotiable or was the offer firm. She said negotiable. I asked her about pay rate. She stated that the actual pay was lower than the job posting (the number she floated was lower than the posting). At the end of the interview she said I was highly favorable. We said our thank you's and politely ended the conversation. The job recruiter called me to say that the interview went poorly because I asked to discuss the pay rate and that I stated my long term goal was to practice law. I am a law school graduate and my legal experience is what qualifies me for the job. Furthermore, the position was "at will" for a period no longer than 12 months and no benefits. My points being that the long term goal of practicing law by a law graduate should not be a red flag for a temporary position in legal research (encumbrance research(liens, etc.)), and employers offering no benefits to a full-time at-will employment who baulk at any mention of negotiating pate rate after stating that there is a negotiable range is, in my opinion, a red flag on their part signaling them as a company who has no respect for their talent. It seems like a bullying tactic. The interview was a waste of time and if that is the only experience I ever have with the company then I will not have a positive opinion of them. It was very disappointing because the position described in the job posting seemed interesting and fun.

    Interview Questions

    • (Honestly hard to remember, she asked so few)
      1. What are your long-term goals?
      2. Do you have any questions for me?

      To be fair, she gave more statements about the job than she did ask questions, but she interviewed me very little. Again most of the process was my questioning.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Wolters Kluwer in February 2017.

    Interview

    Three interviews. One with the recruiter and two more with managers, all via phone. Positive attitudes all around, and they were very happy to answer my questions. While the interviewers were professional, it still felt casual and comfortable.

    Associate Product Support Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wolters Kluwer.

    Interview

    Off the bat the recruiter was kind of rude. The phone call kept cutting in and out, and when I would ask if she could repeat the question she seemed to get annoyed. She sounded as if she'd rather be doing something else with her time. She then brought up the hourly wage of the job and asked if in would accept/be okay with it. Which I thought was odd because she barely addressed the duties of the position.

    At the end of the call the recruiter said she would contact me the following week on a status update. That never happened so I had to reach out to her..I didn't get the position but she was kind enough to offer me a chance for another position with the company. That's the only nice thing I can say I gained from my experience with her.

    IT Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Very disorganized and unprofessional process. I applied for a position online, and a month later received an email back from an internal recruiter saying they reviewed my resume and wanted to talk to me further. I immediately replied, but then heard nothing back.

    I emailed back after a few days, and finally after a week I received a reply that a different recruiter would be following up with me and asking for availability again. I immediately replied, and then again heard nothing.

    I again emailed back after a week asking if they were still interested, and finally after another few days, I received a reply that (this is a direct quote) "I commit to send to you invites for interviewing with [xxx] and myself next week, and also to potentially interview with our CIO in two weeks." Again I replied back thanking them and providing my availability for the following week, and again I heard nothing.

    I followed up weekly for the next two weeks, but did not receive any replies to my emails whatsoever.

    Overall, it was not a good impression to leave with a candidate. If things changed and they were no longer interested or the position was no longer open, they could have sent a simple email saying so.

    QA Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Wolters Kluwer in September 2016.

    Interview

    It was an hour long phone screen that included about a 45 min Web Ex session for a test that evaluated SQL, SoapUI and test case designing skills. Although I am not great at taking interview tests, it is even more nerve wracking when you know you are being watched. But, I can still manage to convey that I know what I am doing. However, feedback received was that I did not define appropriate test cases for the UI. I am a UI/UX SME and have made my bread and butter testing/designing front ends for the the last 10 years or so. It was obvious the person screening me did not have a QA background.
