    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Kelly Services (Seattle, WA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Met with the recruiter/staffing manager at the field office. The computer wasn't set up correctly so had to wait for co-worker to call back, unfortunate as that was the first day of the job.

    Interview Questions

    • When having to describe my skillsets, felt as if I had to defend my achievements..   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I actually negotiated with the manager of the business that interviewed me after the staffing agency did. Due to the commute and job responsibilities, it wouldn't have been cost effective to take the position.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Kelly Services (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The office was small. The staff was personable. I was talked "to" instead of being talked "at". It wasn't assumed that my skills were lacking just because I was temping instead of already being somewhere permanent.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was no real negotiation phase. There was a position opening and I said yes.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Kelly Services (Santa Fe Springs, Los Angeles, CA) in December 2008.

    Interview

    This was a long process initially that consisted of applying online, getting an in person interview at a Kelly Services branch, lots of testing, a background check, and calling every week several times and several locations. I finally called into the Santa Fe Springs office and was offered an interview with Kaiser. I interviewed the next week and started the next day. I then submitted to a drug test and have been here for almost a year and a half. I love my job!
