  1. Senior People Operations Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at HOMER (New York, NY) in Feb 2021

    Interview

    1) Phone Screening with the Hiring Manager

    Applied to this role and the Hiring Manager reached out to me the same day to schedule a phone screening a few days later. During the phone screening I was asked general questions about my previous HR roles, preferred working style and behavioral questions. A week later I was notified that I was not selected to move forward.

    The experience was overall positive and the company seems like they have a strong and diverse working culture. I was also provided an update of my outcome in a personal email from the Hiring Manager, rather than an automated response from their system, which was very nice of the team!
    Interview

    Q: Can you walk me through your resume? Q: What are some HR platforms you have experience in? Q: What is your preferred working style? Q: What are you looking for in a manager and in your next role?
