    Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Accountemps in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    1:1 interview, I was surprised that I did not get any skills test, nor were I told that I would have to take one before the interview. The interview is easy, they just want to know about your background and they take notes on your resume. When I asked them if they have any jobs opening at this time, they said no, which was different from what I heard from the voice mail. It raised my doubt that they just want to add you into their candidate pool, plus, I never heard from my interviewer anymore after that, though I have tried to call them many times.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Accountemps in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interview call back almost immediately, but for a position that I was very overqualified for. Most account reps don't know anything about accounting, finance, Excel, etc. so the questions are very limited. You take some basic software & accounting tests.

    Financial Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Parsippany, NJ
    Anonymous Employee in Parsippany, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Accountemps in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    2 weeks ago I received a call from Accountemp asking me to have an interview with them.
    I waited 2 hours before interviewed by one recruiter, they also kept a copy of my identity, with SSN exposured to them. The receptionist also asked me to do a stupid survey on their computer, which also need lots of personal information including SSN, home address, phone The survey focused on the lay-off insurance you've ever got, nothing to do with the job application!
    The recruiter chatted with me for 30 minites without touching the professional accounting experience. She said that the company will hire me as a permanent employee, they will provide basic salary, quarterly bonus, overtime pay, insurance. That all sounds good but she did not even signed a contract with me! What they promised were totally bullshitting.
    I have never heard from them again after I stepped out their office! But they kept all my personal information. The experience with this company is really bad, I won't believe that an interview with recruiter will give me a job.

    Anonymous Employee in Macon, GA
    Application Details

    The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Accountemps in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by them after seeing my resume online. Talked on the phone and was asked a few questions like, what are your specialties and what I was looking for in a new job. Asked me to come in and meet with the manager. Before meeting with the manager had to fill out a lengthy application and a couple applications on the computer. Finally met with manager and mostly questions about what I was looking for in a job and what I had done in the past. Ended with telling me I was "over qualified" for everything they currently had but if they had a higher level job come up they would call me.
