    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I went to an interview in Temecula and the first impression was not great. I was asked if I have kids who would take me away from the job. Not legal by the way. Then I was told a younger girl had the leading position and there was no way of changing that. I was not there to interview for a position that was taken and age has no factor in this position, so I am not sure why we talked about this for 5 minutes. I have over 10 years experience recruiting and did not see that it was relevant who had another position or what their age was. I also was put off by the fact that they didn’t ask me any questions. Nothing about my skills or how I would intend to get people to work here and retain them. It seemed like they only want to hire young people they are attracted to. I would not work for this company.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you have kids and will they take you from your job?   Answer Question
    • We have a younger girl who is the recruiting manager and that is already set in stone so you can’t have that. I don’t want that to be an issue because she’s younger than you.   Answer Question
    • What are your salary requirements?   Answer Question
