IT Specialist Interview

IT Specialist

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Adecco.

Interview Details – Broken record with this outfit: An initial email or telephone call will be issued from the company. If they have to leave a message on the initial contact, all bets are off: The agent you worked with will have already submerged like a submarine into the ether.

If an initial contact is successful, it's the millrun series of basic questions with little or no subsequent followup.

Interview Question – As each contact with this company was an initial intake interview (regardless of the fact each new contact was with a new agent each time), only the basic, most cursory qualifying statements and questions were used. At no time was the client, or their requirements discussed or mentioned in more than the most basic, nebulous terms.   Answer Question

Greeter for Verizon Wireless Interview

Anonymous Employee

Interviewed at Adecco

Interview Details – I submitted an application to the Adecco office and they reviewed my abilities. They offered positions to me that were available at the time. It wasn't really an interview process, just making sure that I had no criminal history, did a cheek swab for the drug test and did a background check. They did check my references to make sure I was a quality worker.

Interview Question – No interview questions, it's a temp agency.   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Temporary Sourcer Interview

Anonymous Employee
Mountain View, CA

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Adecco in November 2010.

Interview Details – Very easy and fast. Began with a phone screen then an in person 1:1 interview. No panel, no long drawn out process. Received a phone call and email with a job offer. That lead to another internal contract. The quickest and easiest interview process I've had in a long time. Reminded me of the "old days" when interviewing was more personal.

Interview Question – Why are you interested in this role? You seem very overqualified.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I was more than happy what was offered and did not feel the need to negotiate.
