    Contract Recruiter Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Chobani (Chicago, IL (US)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online via a 3rd party Recruiter, who did the initial phone screen. I was then scheduled for 2 phone interviews with members of Chobani's Talent Acquisition team.

    The whole cycle was odd. The role was to sit onsite at an individual contributor vendor's small virtual office in a Chicago suburb. Thought he wasn't an employee of Chobani's, he had some type of pseudo-staff relationship with them.

    I spoke to two Chobani Recruiters who appeared to be based out of NYC. Towards the tail end of the first phone interview, it became clear that they were looking for a Temp Sourcer, not a Recruiter. Essentially, someone to find all the in-demand candidates that they were unable to reach, followed by a hand-off that they would be able to attach their names to. It all made sense whey they were OK with this person sitting offsite. It would allow them to keep this person disconnected from Hiring Managers. Unknown, and at a distance. Once the number of openings was down to a reasonable level, one could only assume the role would end.

    When I asked why the role was posted as a Contract Recruiter, and not a Sourcer, I was told that "things had changed" in the past day. I took that to mean that they knew that very few Talent Acquisition pros would step up for a Temp Remote/Virtual Sourcing position.

    After the 3rd interview, I let them know that if they were looking for a Sourcer, I was not interested. I felt irked that I wasn't given accurate information up front. It was a huge waste of my time. I hope they're more up front with other candidates they contact.

    I notified the 3rd party that I was not interested in the position, and that he was free to delete my info. No follow-up response (or explanation), which I expected.
