    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SThree (Chicago, IL (US)).

    Interview

    The interview process is very very tough. The managers know exactly what they are looking for. Listen to the Talent Acquisition consultant's advise, they helped me so much. I never would've gotten the job without the help.

    Business Development Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Iowa City, IA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SThree (Iowa City, IA (US)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    I was scheduled for two phone interviews. Both times the recruiter missed our session. Finally I was given an email about how they don't sponsor or bring on individuals with school visas, etc. I am a natural born citizen, and already answered questions regarding my work status during the application. I was really disappointed with this process. However, I'm lucky that it ended quickly. I've found many new opportunities, and quite thankfully, feel as if I had dodged a bullet.

    Business Development Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SThree (Houston, TX (US)) in July 2019.

    Interview

    The same job description was posted several times with different titles and requirements from senior to entry level - they are clearly looking for a candidate who will take the lowest pay. I applied online to SThree three times and spoke with three different recruiters. After speaking with the third recruiter I was called in for an interview. The interview itself was pretty basic, the interviewers were slightly rude as they were late and left before I had a chance to ask any questions because of a meeting scheduled exactly one hour after mine began. One of the interviewers was completely rude and fidgeting uncontrollably the entire time and the other was just arrogant. Surprisingly, I was called in for a second interview and the recruiter claimed she wanted to help. I was asked to create a presentation and come back in two days.

    At he second interview both interviewers had already reviewed the presentation before I arrived. They were dressed in T shirts and hoodies but I was instructed to dress "business professional" and then scoffed at because of it.

    I was informed they would follow up in two business days but after a week with emails and texts that went unanswered; I got word that they were going with someone with "more experience" (despite the fact that they knew my experience before I ever interviewed). For a company that claims to be different from the rest, powerpoints are quite elementary.

    If you get an offer, take everything at face value. They only care about themselves and the VP basically said as much.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at SThree (Chicago, IL (US)).

    Interview

    It was a three step process, first they wasted 40mins of my time on the phone while I was at work. Then they called me into an in person interview. I interviewed with two sales reps they were pleasant and the process went well. Then they had a third interview with a presentation. I was interviewed by one of the directors and the entire interview he just blasted me for why I wanted to leave my current job and why I had not stayed longer in some previous positions. I get these things are important to some employers but it really took them 3 interviews to figure that out! they could have just looked at my resume and decided I wasn’t the guy for them. All in all a total waste of my time. But reading some of the reviews I feel like I dodged a bullet.

    Interview

    Three rounds that included a phone interview, in person interview with the director and then a pitch with 4 senior leaders.

    Talent Acquisition Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SThree (San Diego, CA (US)) in December 2018.

    Interview

    I had an amazing experience with everyone that I spoke to throughout the process. I was given tons of information, examples of what my responsibilities would look like, their journey with the company, etc. I felt that everyone was very open and honest about what this job would entail, even what the tough times would be like.

    They were so quick about booking in each interview and getting back to me with the interviewers feedback, which was something that the other companies I was interviewing with were lacking.

    I was reached out on LinkedIn by an internal recruiter. We set up an initial call, 3 days later was reached out to by a director, and 2 days after that spoke with a VP via Skype. I was brought in for an in person final with another director, and was offered the job the next day.
