    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Esquire Recruiting (Lincolnshire, IL) in January 2016.


    Phone interviews, in-person interview. I had the opportunity to meet with the leadership team. We went through typical search processes and went over key searches the firm was currently conducting. It was a refreshing and high energy experience.
