Recruitment Assistant was asked...28 August 2013

Honestly, no difficult questions asked. If I have to choose one among their questions, it should be the killer question, "Why should we hire you?"

4 Answers

The final interview was in the morning and they contacted me in the afternoon that I was selected for the job. It was quick! :) Less

Is it an easy commuter for you to get to this office?

3 Answers

I told them I lived a couple blocks away. This question, however, was also strange because the office's location is easy to reach with multiple freeways interesting less than a mile away and a subway stop a few hundred feet away. Less

The most unexptected question was unique to the position I was interviewing for. It was, "If Utah were to annex a state, which state would it be, what would it be called, and what would the motto be?"

2 Answers

It was meant to measure creativity and ability to think on your feet. I know it was not a matter of patting ones self on the back for coming up with a clever question. Less

Clearly the hiring manager is so impressed with their self to ask this question

Tell me about your analytical skills? I don't know why I sort of froze on this, but I feel I am a awful interviewer. I have a lot of talent and ambition but like a test I freeze at an interview.

What is the difference between speaking and communicating? Would you rather have a job title or a salary?

2 Answers

Communicating is an actual exchange of information. I answered a job-title since a salary doesn't necessarily mean I'm doing anything substantial. He replied the difference between a car salesman and a retail store salesman is essentially the money they take home. Less

The questions I received were typical, pre interview type questions, as listed above. I am still in the beginning stages, so am interested in determining if this is a bonifide position, or if it is a position as is described in other posts on this site...where you must pay to play.

Do not fall for this obvious scam. I work in the field of HR and have for several years. I specialize in several areas of HR including recruiting. No citizen of the USA should ever pay to gain employment by purchasing the employers product to become eligible for employment. Less

You most likely found out that it's an obvious load of b.s. I just went through the conference call. The first half seemed pretty decent. I wasn't really trying to make a career of it. I just wanted something HR related to put on my resume'. Anyway, it did seem ok as a commission opportunity until the second half of the conference was dedicated to "not" try to sell us Legal Shield. It was apparent that whomever didn't opt in to purchase the product wouldn't get the position. "Legal Shield is NOT a requirement" was stressed a couple of time. Then, he tried to give the "if you don't own the product, then how will you understand your job?" and "If you don't understand, then you may not be a great fit for this role... you may have a tough time recruiting, anyway." He was basically saying that those who didn't purchase Legal Shield would not get the job. "We're not a part of Legal Shield. We're just a broker." Great job violating the whole Truth in Advertising thing, Harvard Risk Management. I feel bad for those naive people that bought into this mess. Less

Think of a time that you have had to deliver good customer service to a difficult customer. How did you handle it?

2 Answers

In a previous role, dealing with recoveries of salary overpayments, quite often I would deal with difficult/angry employees. I would: 1) Remain calm (never raise my voice) 2) Listen and empathise (not interrupting the person - be a 'punchbag' for them) 3) Answer any questions as clearly as possible - if I did noy know I would offer to find the answer and arrange for a specific time/day to call them back. 4) Offer solutions - including contacting senior management and directors.
