I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at FirstPRO.
Interview Details – I was called and asked to meet with human resources and then the hiring manager. The manager was pleasant and the interview went fairly quickly. I met with two others and they described the working day, deadlines, goals of the department, and asked what value I would bring to the firm and the position. I was extended an offer within a few days,
Interview Question – Tell me about a situation in which you didn't deliver as expected and how you dealt with it. Answer Question
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at FirstPRO in April 2013.
Interview Details – A recruiter contacted me to set up a meeting to go over my background. I got ready, went it, and she wasn't there. Apparently she was not in the office, but on a business trip. So someone else had to take me in and it was the most awkward thing. She was so rude. She was telling me that when going to interview for their clients, I have to be in black suit, waxed eyebrows, nice hair... Seriously? Thanks for the tips. I was going to show up dirty. Experience was awful.
Interview Question – Salary expectations Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at FirstPRO in April 2013.
Interview Details – i was very impressed with this company. i saw a few positions listed online and decided to forward my resume. A day or two later I was contacted by a recruiter. We spoke via telephone then I was invited to come in to meet in person for an hour or so. When I went to the office I met with 7 or 8 different executives within that hour. It was very different. It was like speed dating almost where each executive would come in to the interview room and introduce him/herself, ask a few questions about your background and then let you know what relevant opportunities they may have available. The thing to note is they can not submit you to their client if you've applied directly within the past 12 months.... Everyone was really professionally and friendly. The office seemed to have a very high caliber of recruiters

Very Difficult Interview
I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at FirstPRO in September 2011.
Interview Details – The Interviewer asked some very inappropriate questions such as: Do you have Children? Do you go to Church? Do you have a car? How old are your children? All of which seemed EOE violations to me. The most inappropriate and most childish question to me was, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" What in the world would make you think I am not "grown up" when I have been a working professional for over 20 years. The Interviewer also assumed the information I provided was false, and did no research or contact of past employers or references. The fact it was interpreted as false, tells me the company is below my standards and is hurting. I was also asked if I were a member of any social network sites; again inappropriate. And finally, the feedback I received was that I lacked "personality". I have a BOA. The interviewer's mindset wasn't there, as if the interviewer had somewhere else to be. And the interviewer reiterated the responses to questions I gave in the beginning the interview, but falsely; as if to "test" me. I was extremely insulted, and I would rather pick up trash full-time than take a seven figure salary to work one week a year there.

Very Easy Interview
I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at FirstPRO in May 2011.
Interview Details – Interviewed with this firm 3 times over 2 years. Ridiculous. They don't know how to hire and treat candidates. Especially for a recruiting firm.
Interview Question – How much did you bill? Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at FirstPRO in April 2012.
Interview Details –
I met with members of FirstPro, Inc. in their Philadelphia office after I was contacted by a recruiter via phone. We had an informative conversation on what type of positions I was looking for. In addition, we discussed my background and current situation. At the conclusion, we both agreed it would be a positive to have a one-on-one meeting.
A few days later, I traveled to their Philadelphia office to further discuss my background, my job search status, what type of position I am looking for, etc. At this time, the employee stated, "I want you to use me as a resource throughout your job search." So, at the conclusion of the meeting I walked away feeling positive about this meeting; however, that soon changed.
I followed-up via email, called a few days later, then inquired about other positions posted on FirstPro's website. I received no answer.
I find it unacceptable to constantly ingnore a client or potential customer. Especially, after you make every indicate you are very willing to "act as a resource". I do not recommend this recruiting company.
