    Field Implementation Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minnetonka, MN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PeopleNet (Minnetonka, MN) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly easy. The talent acquisition specialist went over the job requirements and based on my years of experience, she believed I was an excellent fit for the position. She stated she would be forwarding my information to the hiring manager. Multiple days passed, never heard back from the talent acquisition specialist. I called to follow up, left a voicemail and never heard back. I sent weekly emails following up and never got a response.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. Do you have any experience training or teaching?
      2. Are you willing to travel 70 - 100% of the time?
      3. Do you live near a major airport?
      4. What is your salary requirements?
