I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Kelly Services in December 2008.

Interview Details – 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!

Administrative Assistant

The process took 4 days - interviewed at Kelly Services in January 2008.

Interview Details – After applying for a position via the Kelly Services website, I was called for a brief phone interview and a day later, I went in for a skills test. After the skills test, it was a couple of days before I had an interview at a company. After getting through the interview, a job was offered depending on the outcome of my drug test.

Interview Question – Give an example of when you went above and beyond to deliver results that were extraordinary.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – For the position I applied for, I did not negotiate, though in the past I had successfully negotiated a higher wage by simply refusing the job offer that came and giving a reasonable explanation of why I felt the salary offered was too low.
