Helpful (8)No OfferNegative Experience
My experience started out with a phone screening with the internal recruiter, then I completed an online assessment, then had a phone interview with the hiring manager, and then a 2 hour in-person interview. I researched and prepped for each conversation, I sent thank you letters, I took time away from my current job to take the phone calls and took PTO for the in-person interview. The recruiter requested I provide my SS# and backup financial documentation for them to complete my background check. Though I don't normally provide such information until I have an offer (in this day and age I guard my identity with my life), they insisted this was required in order to get to the offer stage. So I gave them what they asked for because I was genuinely interested in this position with this company. During this period the communication was fluid, timely, and the recruiter was very responsive. I was told they would let me know their decision within the next week. I was very impressed, and excited at the prospect of potentially working for a company that was respectful of its candidates and had its act together! Then... everyone went dark. A week went by, and no word. So I sent an email reiterating my interest and asking if they'd made a decision. Another week, no response. I left a voice mail. Another week, no response. I sent a final email, and then gave up. I still can't believe the total lack of courtesy and professionalism, as it was in stark contrast to my experience when they were 'courting' me. I spent a lot of time and effort going through this process and this company wouldn't even let me know the status of the position or that I was no longer being considered. It takes 30 seconds to send such an email, yet instead I was just ignored. Very disappointing on many levels.

I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Insperity (Irvine, CA) in August 2015.
responded to online application with an interview request. Phone interview with insperity rep prior to client interview. Multiple interviews with various departments, moving up the chain so to speak. Insperity interview rep was essentially getting in the door

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Insperity (Overland Park, KS) in August 2015.
I received a call from a recruiter after submitting my resume on LinkedIn. After many forms that had to be filled out for a background check (MANY!) I had a meeting with the District Manager who conducted a typical interview for about 45 minutes at their office. I was told I should move on to meet the RM and never heard back.
- Very basic. Why choose this company, what was the last book you read, what kind of environment do you thrive in, what kind of supervisor do you work well with... I asked if I could expect to move on in the process, the DM said yes that I should meet the RM and that he would be in town the following week. I never heard back-I called HR to find out what had happened-they said they decided to move forward with someone else. I wrote a nice note asking for any constructive feedback regarding the interview, as I thought I was moving on and didn&amp;#039;t- received no reply. Rejection is part of the interview process, but so is respect. Candidates deserve to know the truth if it is going to be a fit or not, especially if the candidate asks. It is a wonderful opportunity to learn why you are or are not qualified. Not very impressed that the DM was not forthcoming. Answer Question
- They did do an EXTENSIVE background check on me before I even had my first interview. I have nothing to hide, but was shocked at the information I had to gather and provide before even having a first interview-quite time consuming. Answer Question

I applied online. I interviewed at Insperity.
I was scheduled for a phone interview with the "Lead Recruiter". During the phone interview things seem to be going well, when suddenly the Recruiter hang up. I thought it got cut off and was expecting a call back, but the Lead Recruiter never called back. I sent an email, but no response. My guess was the recruiter didn't like my answer, but instead of being a professional about it, she acted unprofessionally.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Insperity (Houston, TX) in June 2015.
I responded to the posted job offer and was subsequently contacted by a recruiter. After a brief conversation I was invited to complete an assessment online. Upon doing so, I was advised of the interview and with whom by email. I arrived early and was promptly greeted and escorted to the interview room. I was actually interviewed by two people simultaneously. I felt that the interview went well. I was relaxed, engaged, and confident that I was qualified and a good fit for the position. It was suggested that I may be better suited for a different position than I had applied for and was asked if I was open to considering it. My answer was "yes". To date, I have not heard from anyone from the company. This is an excellent company and I would recommend them to anyone.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Insperity (Atlanta, GA) in June 2015.
Initially a phone screen, I was told I would hear back to schedule the next phase but I never heard from them again and even an email I sent inquiring about the status was unanswered. This is very unprofessional, candidates should always be followed up with regardless of the intent to pursue them further if they have been selected for an interview.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Insperity (Houston, TX).
Very detailed. Two interviews minimum. Not only are you asked questions about your previous employment and experiences, but you are given a chance to have your questions answered honestly and with such care and consideration. They keep your needs and feelings in mind.

Phone interview that made me feel like the in person was a formality, that I basically had the job. The in person interviewer, at the actual company, described a very different job than was discussed over the phone.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Insperity (San Mateo, CA) in March 2015.
Easy and relaxed. Recruiter contacted me via LinkedIn, set up phone call, went well. She set up an in-person on-site. On-Site was great, relaxed and casual. Second interview was with regional at the same location, also very relaxed and calm. Everyone seems very respectful and kind. By the end of each interview I felt as though I already had the job. After a background check came back, they offered me an official written offer but I did receive the verbal offer a week or so beforehand.
