    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Insperity (Phoenix, AZ) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online, got a call within a week for a phone interview. I was well prepared and the recruiter seemed pleased with my answers. Then the interview abruptly ended when I said that I had not had a six-figure paying job in the past? I don't know what skills they think that means that I lack but I think there might be questions you can ask someone to determine if they have those skills. I just happen to be someone who has been in a position financially to take positions that interest me instead of always having to chase that next dollar. I thought that aligned with the corporate culture as it was laid out in their website so this was quite shocking. It also contradicts the pay levels reported for this position on Glassdoor.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Insperity (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    The worst interview process. Canceled twice with no notice or word or apology. The recruiter totally flaked and made up excuses after I called. She never said she'd be late, or had to reschedule. Just totally flaked. This is a bad business.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Insperity in November 2014.

    Interview

    Screened by phone and then given tests to measure aptitude and personality. I had two in-person interviews and was asked to provide work samples. Everyone was very kind and welcoming and I felt very comfortable with the interviewers. I am, naturally, pleased they offered me a position, but I would rate the experience as positive either way.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Insperity.

    Interview

    I got a phone interview a month or so after applying. It seemed like it went really well and the recruiter seemed really excited to get me into an in-person interview because he thought I would be a great fit. He said to follow up if I hadn't heard by X date. Well, I didn't hear, so I sent a follow up/thank you email. Nothing. I sent one more follow up. NOTHING. I would have been fine with it if he had just sent a reply like "I'm so sorry, they filled the position," or "They have decided to go in another direction," but the complete non-response after such enthusiasm was bizarre and rude.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Insperity (McLean, VA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a recruiter via LinkedIn. Next step was a phone call with the recruiter where we reviewed my background (LinkedIn profile) and she explained the position, compensation, and company. Interviewed in person with the district manager - this was a standard interview. 2nd in person interview was with the regional manager - this was a more informal, conversational interview focusing more on the company culture and whether or not I would be a good fit.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Insperity.

    Interview

    Started with a phone interview with internal recruiter. It was more of her selling me on why I should work for Insperity. Next was F2F interview with District and then Regional Sales Manager. Both were surprisingly easy interviews considering that it is a "$200k+" sales job. Next I had to go thru a very detailed background check that took a very long time but no drug test which I thought was very odd.
