Delivery Vice President Interview

Delivery Vice President
Detroit, MI

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Kelly Services in February 2014.

Interview Details – Phone screens with headhunter and HR, then phone interview with hiring mgr, then F2F with 8 folks at HQ. Although it looked like it went well, the end result was to ask if I was interested in a totally different position (which I wasn't). Seems like a very good, midwestern culture and lots of long tenured folks. Sorry it didn't work out.

Tier I Technical Support Interview

Tier I Technical Support
Atlanta, GA

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Kelly Services in January 2011.

Interview Details – Interviewed on basic computer/gaming and basic computer knowledge. As long as you have done some type of work on either computer or gaming systems, you should be able to get this job as they are going to offer you low pay anyway.

Interview Question – Are you a gamer?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiations. Consider working for companies directly. Avoid working for these people. Pay is way too low.

IT Helpdesk Interview

IT Helpdesk
Peoria, IL

I applied through a staffing agency - interviewed at Kelly Services in November 2013.

Interview Details – No specific job interview was held with the client. The job description information was vague and the Staffing Specialist minimized my background to justify the poor rate The Staffing Specialist presented the rate as a take it or leave it situation and blamed the client for the low rate.

Interview Question – No interview was conducted with the client.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No, opportunity to negotiate. I told the Staffing Specialist that the rate was too late I provided my salary history to present what my previous rates had been. There was no concern that I needed to be the beneficiary of the salary that my education and work experiences could bring. Kelly Services Staffing Specialist are lowdown and greedy. They exploited the fact that I was unemployed and had not been able to secure a steady IT position.

IOS Senior Adviser Interview

IOS Senior Adviser
Cartersville, GA

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Kelly Services in May 2013.

Interview Details – The hiring process was a little taxing, and nothing like with other At home positions I have had with other companies. I had to drive 30 minutes to one of their offices to fill out the paperwork. The phone interview was simple there was nothing really spectacular about it. It was a simple phone interview.

Interview Question – There really wasn't one, it was standard and pretty much common sense. I suppose the most difficult question is how would you handle a difficult customer?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There really is no negotiation beyond the hours you work, and even then that was very limited.
