    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at consilium1 in July 2014.

    Interview

    Someone from c1search referred me to an internal position. They had found me on one of the job boards. A few weeks later, she told me about the internal job. I had two phone interviews the next day - with a big wig and then a technical person I would be working with.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    It seemed like their process was a bit disorganized and unprofessional.

    I did not even get a formal written job description (other than title) so it was a little tough to ask specific questions (or sound like an idiot). Also, it seemed like a two for one type job - Software Engineer/IT Generalist and they couldn't tell me how much time they spent on each.

    They wanted me to give notice to my current employer, but their written offer still had contingencies (background/drug/reference checks) and it seemed like arm twisting to get an extension. The recruiter blew this concern off as no big deal and that I should quit if I had nothing to hide. This goes against all job advice I have read as well as common sense.

    I did not also get a chance to talk with what would be my direct supervisor.

    I also probably only talked to people there for an hour total before they gave me an offer, which I only had 24 hours to consider.

    They wanted me to show up at a client site on my first two days, to get a brain dump of an employee that was leaving, before I had any formal training/exposure/orientation to their systems.

    Lastly, their pay and benefits were not sweet enough to make me consider moving. They did not meet a modest (10%) raise I had requested.
