    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview

    Waste of time. Twice the amount of interviewing. First at the agency and then another round of interviews at their client. Very young staff. Avoid the middleman and you will save lots of time.

    Interview

    The interview was very brief. Asked me about my skills and what sort of opportunities I was searching for. Have had one call from a recruiter since then and did not receive a call from the company they said they were sending my resume to. Overall friendly company but discouraging when you're told they'll help you find a job and all you get are email updates from a robot with jobs that aren't fitted to your career field.

    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview

    Initially pleasant, I had a phone interview and then was called back for three more separate interviews where I met with various managers and finally shadowed someone recruiting. I was basically told I had the job since the Director of the company met and liked me and recommended my hiring. I was then, as a final step, asked to complete a timed assessment which had me answer multiple choice questions relating to my personality and analytical skills.
    I then did not hear back from anyone at the company. I emailed one of the women I interviewed with, she finally emailed me back today and told me I was no longer under consideration because of the results of this "Assessment" when it was never mentioned previously. They will waste your time and are not considerate of other people. I also got in trouble for missing so much work coming back to interview 3 times with them. Absolutely would not recommend.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Robert Half (Boston, MA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I explained my background and my past experiences. That is it. That employer told me about the company. I still haven't hear any reply back. She basically told to me look for another person for help. It is really waste of time.

    Interview

    Started with a skype interview that went well and the next day I had a tech interview which went well, nothing too tough, but I asked about conditions of the places you are sent noting some of the negative things I had read on glassdoor.

    Then nothing, I left a message, but no response. Very unprofessional.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Robert Half (Baltimore, MD) in April 2015.

    Interview

    There was 1 phone interview and 4 face to face interviews. There are many people you meet with, they don't really seem to talk to each other, so you end up repeating yourself a lot. Because there are so many people involved in the process, you are not only given different info but a lot of it is conflicting information. One person extended me an offer and another withdrew it.

    Interview

    I am a candidate. They are very high pressure. Whenever I get a call from them, I half cringe. This recruiter I am working with goes from completely dropping the ball on me to being so high pressured that he won't stop calling and even sends texts.
