Very Easy Interview
Administrative Assistant Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Accountemps in September 2012.
Interview Details – Forwarded a resume online. Received a call requesting an interview. Asked to do a skills test online prior to interview which included a personality test. Waited in busy lobby full of potential candidates (temps) also waiting to interview /register for the service. Interview was a review of my test results and resume.I was told I scored well and my resume looked good. I also was told I would be contacted when a position that matched my skills was available. I was never contacted again
Interview Question – No difficult questions were asked during the interview. Some difficult questions/ skills were requested during the online testing. Nothing outside of my abilities or the average person with Microsoft Office skills and common sense. View Answer
Administrative Assistant Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Accountemps in February 2014.
Interview Details – The interview was great! It was a wonderful chat with the recruiters about my experience and my future goals.
Interview Question – None. They were all pretty straight forward. Answer Question
Accounting Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Accountemps in January 2014.
Interview Details – I called to schedule an appointment with them after I applied online. I went in for the interview and testing the following week. I did well on the testing and was told to call back weekly. I would like to add though that some of the recruiters there are the biggest liars. One recruiter told me that she had been a controller. That's actually laughable. I guess she decided to take a step down just to become a recruiter. She also had the nerve to ask me if I would consider going back to school for a BA in Accounting. I have a Master of Science in Accounting. That just makes no sense to me. Fake promises and lies is usually what you get from them. They spend all this time asking questions just to disregard everything you tell them you are looking for. I was offered a job paying significantly less than what I told them was my minimum. Thanks, but no thanks. Unless, you're desperate, do not use these people. They also want you to tell them everyone that you're interviewing and applying with. They claim this is so they can help you...yeah, right!
Reason for Declining – It payed significantly less than my minimum and was only a temp assignment.
