    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Burbank, CA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at GradStaff (Burbank, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The entire interview was done over the phone. A lady had called me asking if she could speak to me about my application that I had turned in. Then she asked if I had a couple minutes to speak with her, the phone call took roughly about 20 minutes. It suddenly became an interview even though this was the first phone call that I had received or heard from them.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at GradStaff.

    Interview

    I did an initial phone interview where I was asked basic expectations, if I had transportation, and other simple questions like that. I sent in a few requested forms (at least 3 professional references), and then had a Skype interview.
    The Skype video was used, but we spoke over the phone. She did a basic intro and then she started asking me the typical job interview questions. Tell me about a time you were involved in a unethical situation and how you handled it? What are your strengths and weaknesses?
    There weren't any super difficult or crazy unique questions.
    After about 45 minutes of the interview, she gave me an overview of my interview skills and gave me tips to improve.
    She told me I passed the interview and sent me some more forms to complete (background check, personality tests..)
    She said they hold candidates for 3 months, it has been about 2 months and I have not gotten any interviews. She told me to check in every now and then, so I have, and she just said there haven't been any openings in my city at all.

    Interview Questions

    • Unethical situation? Strengths? Weaknesses? Lots of "tell me about a time" questions.   Answer Question

    Interview

    These people will screw you around all day. Interviewed with them twice and was told they would have interviews for me in a months time. Gradstaff did not only not get me a interview they were unresponsive to my emails and phone calls for long periods of time. Don't waste your time you can get a job on your own without them taking a cut of your check.

    Entry Level IT Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at GradStaff (Minneapolis, MN).

    Interview

    I applied online for employment services through GradStaff because the company advertised specializing in assisting new college graduates find employment. Alex Thiry, a GradStaff representative responded by email 3 months later. I replied to the email and never got a response. 1 month later, I again received another response from Alex asking if I was still looking for employment. I replied stating that I was still looking for employment and was still interested in enlisting GradStaff to help me with the process. Again, no response so I decided to call Alex 2 weeks later. We spoke and I provided him with all the information he requested. All went well. He said he would share my information with his team and contact me in the morning to discuss the next step. I never heard back and am now wondering if GradStaff just wanted my information to sell to solicitors. I had already wasted too much time with GradStaff so I enlisted TekSystems to assist in my job search. Whoa, BIG difference. TekSystems was very professional and very prompt in our communications. TekSystems got me my 1st interview within 2 weeks from enlisting their service. So, not a very pleasant experience with GradStaff. GradStaff is going to lose out on a lot of talented people if they handle accounts like Alex Thiry did with me. Very disappointing in my opinion.

    Entry Level Position Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at GradStaff (Scottsdale, AZ) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I received a call the next day after sending in my resume to come in for an interview. The lady who called sounded very enthusiastic and helpful as well as the lady who interviewed me. They said I was an ideal candidate and that they will contact me if they find a position that suits me but I should also continue the job search and check in with them myself to see if they had any openings. (If they don't hear from you within 2 months they'll assume you've found a job on your own.)
    However, I did contact the one who interviewed me via email and left voicemails but she never responded to any of my questions or emails for over a month so the interview ended up leading nowhere.

    Interview

    I sent in my resume, they called me the next day and scheduled an interview for that week. The interview was set up like a job interview, but they also offered advice on interviewing and wanted to know what positions I was looking into. They called me back within a few weeks about a job opening.

    Interview

    I applied for this position at GradStaff, Inc. and was contacted by an "Account Manager" for a phone interview. Low and behold, this "interview" wasn't for the position I applied for - it was for their services! I never applied to utilize their services. This is a sleazy way to solicit "customers." Despicable. I thought about clarifying this with the "Account Manager," but she was so obnoxious and sales-y that I wouldn't want to work for this company anyway.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no questions as this wasn't an actual job interview, which was not what I was e-mailed. Misleading.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at GradStaff (Phoenix, AZ) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Called me within days of applying. Hour long interview to get to know you and evaluate your interview skills.

    Once through with that they put you on their roster and call you back when they have an opening with a company that would fit you. For me that was about 3 weeks after my first interview.

    Very relaxed 20 minute interview with employer. Got a call the next day saying that I had been offered the position.

    Recent Graduate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at GradStaff (Dallas, TX) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I received a call followed by an email from a representative October 7th 2014. I spoke with her and was invited for an in-person interview on October 13th 2014. Mind you I drove 10 hours to make this appointment. During the interview I was asked all the questions you'd expect. I was told they mostly handle sales and administrative positions. I was told about there staffing process and timelines. I was provided with constructive criticism at the end and was told that I would receive a call from a member of there staff that was not present that day to complete my packet that Wednesday. I called that Friday and spoke to the same representative who at first seemed to have no knowledge of who I was or what I was talking about and was told the person I needed to speak to still wasn't in. It is now the 24th of October and no call. I went from feeling positive to feeling taken as a time filler.

    Interview

    Did the Skype Interview because their business is in NJ but yet they have "connections" on Long Island (...?) Had to send them 5 resumes because their "offices" are not all linked together. Never heard back from them, they're 100% USELESS.
