    Quality Assurance Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Orlando, FL (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Acorn Stairlifts (Orlando, FL (US)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Phone Interview with Ginger in Recruiting
    Person to Person Interview with Joe and Ray
    Background check - only for criminal; did not do a reference check.
    Offered the position rather quickly due to they needed assistance in the department. I accepted the position because I needed a job. Now I regret it. There is no real training - only a few days and only learned about the company. Have to sit with others to learn the system; the QA girl I originally sat with was let go right after I started, so there has not really been anyone around to help me. I wouldn't recommend anyone to come here. I'm already looking for another job.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. They pay low for QA because they offer "commission" based on sales. Commission is not guaranteed

    Negotiation

    No real negotiation. They hire low pay for QA. Quality is not really needed with this company because they don't value our information.

    Service Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Steeton, England
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Acorn Stairlifts (Steeton, England) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Interview was carried out over Skype by some bloke in HR who really had no clue about what questions to ask an engineer or any real experience of engineers. The questions I asked where the normal ones like bonus overtime etc I was told the company loves engineers that will work overtime and that is not the case. I was advised there performance bonus and always scope for pay rises total lies.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Acorn Stairlifts (Toronto, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    They were hiring in secret so met at a hotel even though there was a head office close by—HR representative and National Manager were present—never followed up after the interview even after I reached out to inquire—very unprofessional conduct during and after the interview—I can see now why their rating is so low as it seems they don’t value people in the company culture

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Acorn Stairlifts (Steeton, England) in June 2018.

    Interview

    Relaxed, friendly, more of a chat. People were friendly and informative, and a member of HR was present. Did not feel overly stressful and although I didn't get the initial role, I was offered a different position based on my skills. I applied online, received an email, then a phone call, was invited in for interview within a few days. Received a call back the next day to advise I hadn't gotten the job, but was offered to come in again the ebxt day to interview for a different position.
