    Senior Staffing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Vienna, VA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CrossCountry Consulting (Vienna, VA (US)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I knew someone within the firm, and they internally connected me to folks on the recruitment team. I received a call to set up a phone interview with a recruiter (Amanda - who was amazing throughout the process!), and from there I was asked to come in for an in-person interview. I interviewed with a number of people at various levels throughout the firm. The interview overall was about 3 hours including a lunch that was scheduled between me and my potential manager. Overall I was impressed with every person I met; they were professional, kind, and truly loved the organization and the people they worked with. I was then asked to come in and meet with one of the founders of the firm, who helped solidify that this was the place I wanted to begin the next chapter in my career.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CrossCountry Consulting (McLean, VA (US)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very thorough. It began with an interview with the Recruiting Manager, 2 Skype Interviews, and then an onsite interview in McLean. It was much more personable and thorough than Partners I have interviewed with in the past, many of which did not require an onsite/face-to-face interview at all. I appreciate the investment CrossCountry makes to ensure they hire to their core values and culture.
