Staffing Representative Interview

Staffing Representative

I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Manpower in January 2010.

Interview Details – One phone screening, one long interview, and a job offer on the spot. My interview was good, the office was impressive, and it seemed like a great place to land. The owners are a married couple, and sometimes their personal life spills out into the office and this was noticed at my interview.

Interview Question – There really were not any.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Go for what you really want. They are reasonable.

Very Easy Interview

Staffing Specialist Interview

Staffing Specialist
Austin, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Manpower in August 2010.

Interview Details – Was recruited off a job board for this position because I had sales experience. After two phone conversations with an RPO recruiter, had an in-person interview scheduled with the branch manager. After we had interviewed for roughly 1 hour, had another unscheduled interview with the regional director. Both were very cordial and free-flowing interviews.

After 3 days, I was offered the position.

Interview Question – Walk me through your work experience.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Did not really have a negotiation phase. I was told that the salary would be at one level during the interview and was offered at $2,000 above the number.

Staffing Specialist Interview

Staffing Specialist
Vancouver, BC (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Manpower in August 2013.

Interview Details – Received an initial phone call from HR and had a brief phone interview, had another phone interview 2 days later with the Lead Recruiter in HR. The phone interviews went well so they set up an interview for me with the Branch Manager.
During the interview we talked about my background and he told me more about their business. Received call a couple days later for a final interview with the Regional Director. It was very casual and relaxing, as we were talking more about what Manpower wants to do in the future and how I can fit in the plan.
Got a call from HR with their job offer and accepted.

Interview Question – Nothing unexpected during the whole process.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I negotiated after the initial job offer, improved offer was made and accepted.
