    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview, and then supposed to have a skills test, but never followed up. The person interviewing obviously wasn't paying attention and repeated the same questions over several times. They would then say, oh I asked that already didn't I.

    Interview Questions
    • Wanted all my personal information, referrals, and so on up front! I said no, and didn't hear from them again. I felt like they were just trying to fill a database, not actually interested in me.   Answer Question

    Paralegal Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Robert Half in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went for an interview. The process consists on filling forms, and then you get a personal interview that lasts around 20 minutes. This first interview is basically a way of getting to know you better. They offer temporary jobs, as well as full time jobs, but they get a commission of your salary if they find you a job. You have a benefits package which is available after you land your first job.

    I applied online - interviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview Details

    Got a call from one of the recruiters who set up an initial interview. The interview was very generic. Just questions about my background, my academic projects. He explained the role and the benefits and i thought the interview went off well but i never herd back.

    Salaried Professional, Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview Details

    With Robert Half it is a hit or miss. I have never had a placement with them. I also find that they are astoundingly unprofessional, except for the case of one recruiter in Atlanta office who I rather not name.

    Interview Questions
    • One of the recruiters asked how long have I been in the US because I have an accent. That was so inappropriate. Again, I would not recommend RH; they treat job applicants like cattle that are led astray with false hopes.   Answer Question

    Mortgage Processor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Raleigh, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview Details

    I was heavily pursued by a Robert Half recruiter for a mortgage processing job. I had a face to face interview and was told how impressive I was and the job was mine. I was told I would be hearing back from them in a just couple days with a hire date. A couple days later came and went, and for the next 2 weeks, my phone calls and emails went unanswered. The recruiter I dealt with was NEVER available. I finally got angry and asked if I could speak to anyone else there who could tell me what was going on. I was transferred to another recruiter who meekly told me the position was on hold. I never heard from anyone at Robert Half again. I regret believing I was dealing with a professional organization and I regret putting my job search on hold for these people.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing asked was difficult at all. Basic interview questions like "tell me about yourself" and "what are your goals".   Answer Question

    Application Details

    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 Questions
    • 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

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. 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 Questions
    • He mostly kept telling me to lower my expectation rather than getting to learn more about my credentials and prior experience.   Answer Question
