    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed 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

    Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minnetonka, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minnetonka, MN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Robert Half in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    They called me on a Wednesday and I interviewed the following Tuesday. Everyone there was EXTREMELY dressed up and professional. I felt a little underdressed with dress pants and a button-up T-shirt. The interview was really easy. He talked most of the time and the only question that he really asked is how much I would like to make. I had prepared for a hard interview with difficult questions but he barely even asked me any questions. He was very nice and friendly and I felt very relaxed.

    Interview Questions
    • There weren't any. I expected 'tell me about yourself' or 'strengths/weaknesses' but there weren't any questions asked. I wish that every interview was this easy!   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    He called me the Monday after I interviewed and offered me a 2 day job that would star that afternoon. I had a doctors appointment that day, so I said that I couldn't.
