    Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fircroft (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    The interiew process can be quite personable. However, most of the management involved in the hiring process prefer to talk about their own experience and work habits. they like to bring in as many middle management and some upper management in for their interviews. The interviews are conversational and typcially one-sided.

    Interview Questions

    • There was not a difficult or unexpeted question. What was interesting: you may be asked how your work best. They state they do not like to micro manage and prefer people who can work on their own. However, they do like to micro manage.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    there was not a negotiation phase
