    Policy Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at AltisHR (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The recruiter from Altis called and invited me to an interview. When she described the job, it was clearly completely unrelated to my background, experience, skills, and professional goals. When I expressed that this seemed really far from a fit, she said "No, no, this is how they describe it, but really your general skills in x will be perfect." What can I say? I was almost finished another assignment and needed work, so I went - taking (unpaid) time off to go. When I interviewed, the company seemed great and the job fantastic but clearly a total mismatch. I have a lot of valuable skills, but I have absolutely NO background in what they were seeking. The interviewers could see it, I could see it, and you know what else? I am sure that the Altis recruiter saw it too. She just had to "send her three people" and had one in mind and didn't care about the fit of the others. She didn't respect me or my time, or respond honestly when I spoke about my misgivings. I lost wages, time, and energy on this. Altis went further in losing my respect.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AltisHR.

    Interview

    They called me for interview. When I arrived at the office, a recruiter interviewed me and discussed my skills. She tried to fixed my resume and she said they will contact me if there would be a job match. From that moment I haven't heard from them again. ever! This is a waste of time. Please don't waste your time with this company. If they called for job interview, please make sure you will get a job interview and not simply discuss your skills etc. Because otherwise it will just be another waste of time.

    Interview

    The interview confirmation email and accompanying online proficiency test link was not sent until 2 hours before my interview -- after I called and inquired. The interviewer asked few questions and was very casual. Information about follow-up paperwork was slow to arrive and took 4 weeks to process, with fees.

    Temp Worker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mississauga, ON (Canada)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at AltisHR (Mississauga, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    This wasn't so much an interview as a rapid-fire, hurried 15-minute rush. I don't understand why AltisHR operates the way that they do. They are rushed, disinterested and don't listen. You can tell by their ridiculous use of "buzzwords" and jargon that they haven't a clue what they're actually doing short of hiring based on volume and not quality. It's both amusing and pathetic to watch how the women go from over-the-top fake to downright dismissive when you don't give an answer they want to hear (I have vast experience at mid-tier job levels as well as extensive knowledge on various databases, project management and organisation management but by all means, tell me all I'm qualified for is reception...) Looking at these reviews, I guess I'm not the first person that they've made drive all the way to their office to interview for a position that was already filled. What a colossal waste of time.
