    Customer Success Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Collabera (Austin, TX (US)) in May 2020.

    Interview

    I received an unsolicited contact on LinkedIn by one of Collabera's recruiters, asking if I wanted to speak about a job opportunity. I wasn't looking to change companiess/jobs, but I figured I'd at least listen to the options. We scheduled a time for a phone interview, and the recruiter sent me the job description.

    The job description was for the same position that I currently hold at a very successful global company. In addition, the job description said it was for 9-12 months, with the possibility of being longer term. To be frank, the company I work for is a larger, more prestigious and more widely recognized company than Collabera, so I was wondering why they would possibly leave my position for a job that wasn't even permanent. But I figured that I wouldn't make assumptions and I'd at least listen to the options.

    Anyway, long story short: The recruiter did not call me at the appointed time. 15 minutes after our scheduled time, I sent an email asking if I had been mistaken about our meeting time. 30 minutes after that, the recruiter called and emailed me back saying "I'm sorry - I had an urgent meeting that came up" and could we reschedule.

    At that point, I refused to waste any more of my time. If he truly had an urgent meeting that came up, it would have taken nothing to send a quick call, text or email letting me know - even if it was only a few minutes prior to the time we had scheduled. He was either lying about something coming up, or didn't think he needed to notify me about a change ahead of time when I had rearranged my schedule for the call - neither one of which is acceptable in a professional environment.

    If I had been 40 minutes late to a first interview without any kind of contact beforehand, I would be immediately removed from the hiring pool and they would likely never interview me for any position afterward. Yet somehow they think that it's OK to waste my time when they're the one who asked ME for the interview.

    Sure sign of a toxic work environment. No thank you.

    Customer Service Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Collabera in March 2020.

    Interview

    Unfortunately very pushy process, pushing the role on me via frequent text/calls/emails for an underpaid contractor position for a large tech firm.. I sent my resume within a day, after which the recruiter wanted to schedule a phone screening that same day. Subsequently, she went ahead and submitted to another role before consulting with me, also accidentally texting me personal details of another employee shortly after. Once I backed out of the hiring process, I was guilt-tripped that it would be a bad look for the hiring manager.

    Even if they are not a scam, they certainly are extremely unprofessional and I would prefer to work with another agency.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Collabera in March 2020.

    Interview

    Connected with recruiter when I needed job change . Immediately got the test next day. Was told I will get interview by next week if I took the test asap , did it, passed the test and did not get any next round.
    After a long wait of 20-25 days was told that they're not looking any more. Really unfaithful behavior. Do this as a side task. Never spend too much time on what ever they say, because of their non transparent process. You can find 100s of recruiters on Linkedin, they'll lure you and act like they're diligently working for your roles. But they're not. Just take it light. Try other reliable consultancies instead who can be at least transparent and not waste your time. Not worth spending time bcz of misleading information from recruiters.

    One of the recruiters reached out to me on Linkedin and we chatted for about 20 minutes over the phone so that I had the opportunity to learn more about the position. Towards the end of the call I was invited to a face-to-face interview with the manager in Houston.

    The interview was extremely conversational where the interviewee is supposed to drive the conversation which I loved. After this round you get invited to a lunch type interview.

    Met with a recruiter on campus and had a next day interview. He was great, very personable and provided a lot of insight about the company and the role.

My recruiter helped me a lot during the interview process by calling me the day before each interview to give me a picture of what it would be like. I am thankful for this because I knew he wanted me to succeed.
