Difficult Interview

Help Desk Tech Interview

Help Desk Tech
Bellevue, WA

I applied through a staffing agency - interviewed at Robert Half in April 2014.

Interview Details – They head hunt for you and match you to the positions they have in their system. The actual interview that I did go to was kind of crazy. It was more than an hour long and I met over seven people. All asked me questions and it was a bit long.

Interview Question – Robert Half didn't really ask questions they prepared me to answer questions from the hopeful employer when I got the interview. At the interview they asked why do I want this job? Why did I leave my old job?   Answer Question

Accountant Interview

Accountant
Saddle Brook, NJ

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Robert Half in June 2014.

Interview Details – I was called in for an interview just to get to know information about what they have to offer. The person I met with kept critisizing my resume and crossing off positions that i have held in the past while also telling me that I am asking for was outrageous and I should take a cut. no offense to him! i did my homework better than him and I am confident with what I was asking for. Of course, I ended up leaving very disapointed and he never contacted me again. It showed his level of professionalism at the end.

Interview Question – He mostly kept telling me to lower my expectation rather than getting to learn more about my credentials and prior experience.   Answer Question

Interview Question – Normal questions...how do you approach a project, etc.   Answer Question
