Very unprofessional recruiters who do not explain anything or take into consideration some ones skill set. Treats others on a bias unequal method. Over all experience of the management and recruiters are very rude.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Robert Half (Washington, DC) in August 2015.
I met with three different people for the interview--the manager plus two people in Sales Assistant positions. I was asked what I was looking for in a job. The whole process took under an hour. Prior to getting this interview I had already interviewed with Robert Half in order to seek a Recruitment position. When that didn't pan out, one of the managers was kind enough to keep me in mind and give me a phone call about the front desk position. They also notified me about a recruitment opportunity with one of the sister companies.

It was quick, too quick. I met with the recruiter for about 10 minutes and he indicated that I needed to take some assessments and redo my resume for his use. He said he could then call companies to see if they needed someone like me.

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Robert Half in June 2015.
I did not apply for this position, but I was found by another Recruiting Manager from the company on LinkedIn. They reached out to me and asked me maybe 2-3 questions about my experience then asked me to come in for an interview in the Tyson's Corner office. The interview took about 45 minutes total. The interview consisted of me giving a quick review of resume, then the interviewer telling me why the company was so great to work for. The interviewer then brought in about two other people to tell me about their experiences as well...all in all, the interview went fairly well, but I still wasn't sold on anything because it seemed "too good to be true." The Recruiting Manager followed up with me the next day to set me up for the same type of interview, except it was going to be at a closer location to me. It was for the same role, just a different team...this interview went terribly, on their end. The office was extremely small, the air conditioning was not turned on in the waiting area, and all of the employees worked in one room in the back. After the administrative assistant took my resume and had me fill out more paperwork I waited in the "meeting room" for OVER 30 minutes. When the person that I was supposedly interviewing with finally came in and failed to apologize for the wait. He was overly cocky and did not even bother to apologize for keeping me waiting. After meeting with him and two others he said he would pass along my resume to his regional director and be in touch in the next day or so. After a couple days passed I sent him a follow up email asking about the status of candidacy. No response. A couple of days later I sent him another follow up email. And yet again, no response. Overall, this was a terrible interview experience. I have lost respect for the company for having someone of that power acting so unprofessional. I would not recommend this compnay to any one.

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.
