    Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wheeling, WV (US)
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Williams Lea Tag (Wheeling, WV (US)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I had a brief telephone conversation with a recruiter and then was invited to their offices for assessment testing. I was advised of the four skills/areas to be assessed and was encouraged to prepare for those areas by any means available to me. I arrived at their offices and the recruiter explained assessment testing process. I was given 2.5 hours to complete the assessment testing and then met again briefly with the recruiter. The recruiter advised that they would be reviewing my test results and, if I passed three out of the four tests, they would contact me if any of their managers were in need of my skills. If I did not hear from then within six months and was still interested in pursuing a job with Williams Lea, then I could reactivate my application at that time.

    Strategic Sourcing Manager Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Williams Lea Tag (New York, NY (US)) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Internal Recruiter contacted me through a Monster position lead (It does work!).Set up preliminary phone interview, followed by brief 1 hour) face to face interview with a member of the hiring team. Gentleman was informative, personable and represented Williams-Lea in a very professional manner. Left the meeting with a positive feeling about the position and Williams-Lea. I must say that the job description for which I was applying was somewhat fluid and not particularly focused.

    Followed up with the usual e-mails, indicating a desire to move my candidacy for the position forward. While there was no response either from the internal recruiter or the hiring team member to these communications, I received a call for a second interview three weeks later.

    Setting up this interview was difficult as one of the hiring team, with whom I needed to speak with, seemed to have one of the most inaccessible schedules you could find. I think it would have been easier to set up an meeting with the CEO rather than this individual.

    Interview day amid one of the hottest days in New York City. My initial hiring team contact meets me and quickly ushers me to my interview with a peer team member.

    This individual greets me as if I was about to enter a termination meeting. Unsmiling and intent on proving that he/she was in control of the process, proceeded to sit me down in a vacant office, while she faced her laptop and conducted the interview. She quickly established that he/she was a Six Sigma, MBA professional and possessed "World-Class" Sourcing and Procurement experience. This was the first of many times that the term, "World-Class" came up during this interview.

    With one eye on his/her laptop throughout our meeting, we went through the usual interview conversation, with my questions being answered in a vague way, almost as if they were of little consequence. My questions were usually answered with a "why are you asking me this or you don't know?" facial expression. The following answers were usually filled with "World-Class" descriptors, coupled with a condescending and dismissive attitude. My attempts to get some specificity around the job responsibilities and what resources would be available to me was met with more "World-Class" nonsense, as if my queries were inconsequential.

    After an hour of this verbal sparring, the interview was concluded, with my first hiring team member coming and my interview leaving without the courtesy of a handshake. While I attempted at being positive, it was clear that my experience (20+ years) in strategic sourcing was not "World-class" enough for Williams-Lea. I am not sure that their entire model is sustainable, based on their past and present industry acceptance. It is not clear whether their model is functional or simply aspirational.

    To bring this saga to a close, I sent out my usual "thank you" e-mails, asked for the formal job description, including a commodity and reporting tree and expressed a desire to continue the conversation with the VP in charge of the division.

    The response was "World-Class"...

    No response.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process was longer than it needed to be because of the poor communication between the manager and the recruiter. I had to follow up with the recruiter twice in order to move the process along. I had two in person interviews with the hiring manager and a phone interview with the client Account Director before an offer was made.
