    Junior Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bench Accounting.

    Interview

    The recruiter missed our scheduled call time. I tried getting in touch during the time we were supposed to have our phone interview, but could not get ahold of the recruiter. Poor candidate experience, especially for someone in HR. After re-scheduling, I did have the phone interview, and it was fine, basic questions regarding prior experience, why I wanted to work at Bench.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bench Accounting.

    Interview

    The interview process at Bench was quite relaxed, yet still professional. They say to dress casually in what makes you comfortable; my best advice is to dress well but not overdress. They ask many behaviour interview questions and are looking for a fit over accounting acumen. One thing that is kind of annoying is that when they ask your question, all three people are typing away any of your responses but it can be so loud at times and distracting that you forget where you were going on your response.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Bench Accounting (Vancouver, BC) in April-2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview done by what sounded like a 16 year old girl. Easy questions, but interviewer's enthusiasm made me feel like I was a shoe-in. Set me up for disappointment when no offer was made.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bench Accounting (Vancouver, BC) in April-2017.

    Interview

    I submitted my application online and the next day I was contacted for to schedule a phone interview. The initial phone interview of all the interviews I have had this felt the most conversational and instantly made me feel at ease. The phone interview was basically asking about how I would perform the tasks outlined in the job description. There were no surprise or unusual questions. The next week after the interview I was notified that they would not be proceeding with my application.

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Bench Accounting (Vancouver, BC) in March-2017.

    Interview

    Applied online through their website, got an email to schedule a phone interview a few days later. Had a short 15 minute phone interview. Interviewer was a little stiff, clearly reading pre-prepared statements for some of it, and it was easier when she was off-script. They followed up by the end of the week with their decision.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bench Accounting (Vancouver, BC) in March-2017.

    Interview

    Very straightforward and generic interview process. Applied and was contacted by email a few days later. Phone interview lasted about an hour, asked simple questions like explain a time you dealt with conflict and how you resolved it? In person interview was a bit more detailed and consisted of a panel asking behavioural questions, They didnt ask me anything that wouldve highlighted my qualifications for the job though (which I found odd).

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Bench Accounting (Vancouver, BC).

    Interview

    Bench recruiter reached out on LinkedIn because i was a strong technical fit, had a good call and set up convo with cto. That went very well, very knowledgeable and interesting guy. Then an assignment which was formatting api responses, they said it was excellent.

    Last stage was interview with 3 engineers who called it a 'hang out' and an experimental new interview step (no instructions/expectations given). They seemed more eager to discuss game of thrones than my experience and technical interests (so i assumed it was a culture fit interview).

    Next day I got the most generic rejection email saying i didn't have the necessary technical skills. After corresponding, the CTO indicated it had been mishandled and offered to bring me back for an interview a month later.

    Waste of time. Would not recommend, taking amazon offer.
