    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Charlotte, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Shaw Group (Charlotte, NC).

    Interview

    Interviewed as an internal candidate with direct supervisor, recruiting manager, and director of recruiting. Pretty standard "resume" interview where we talked about my past experience as a field recruiter and educational experience. Good interview overall. The people I was interviewing with knew me fairly well
