    At Home Advisor for Apple Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, MI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kelly Services in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    The initial start of the interview process is easy, fill out their application,submit your resume and receive a link to take an assessment. Then they call you and tell you about the position which only pays 9.15 cents an hour. Then they schedule you for a phone interview. Then the drama starts. You have to drive to a Kelly office and fill out some more paperwork and then they do a background check. They are looking for a reason to not pass you trust me. They only want to fill up classes and then they have the audacity to tell you that you might get called for the next class the next month!! Who can afford to stay out of work that long?
    If you got layed off then sure. If you quit your last position than you have to go for what youknow.

    Contract Attonrey Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Kelly Services.

    Interview Details

    I have specialized experience. So, my interview process was mere paperwork with this company. But, I had to interview with the client who asked me a lot of questions about my background knowledge of the subject matter. It was clear there were a lot of young dudes managing the project who had over-sold their knowledge, so they were just trying to cover themselves by having someone on the project with actual knowledge.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question was basically a question about my background skills. The recruiter was not able to tell me a lot about the project so I was only able to prepare a little. The questions were tough, but I was able to answer the questions due to my extensive experience with the subject matter. But, another difficult part was expressing my responses in an elementary language that they could understand without me sounding like I was "dummying" down my knowledge or patronizing the interviewees. They indicated they were impressed and they hired me for a top position. But they seemed too intimidated to utilize my skills to the fullest. I rate this as a negative experience because, while I got the position, I believe it was a sign of their weakness in not wanting to rely on my skills though paying me for them. Their egos got in the way of professionalism in my opinion.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The recruiter did the negotiation. However, I strongly believe the recruiter negotiated my services for a much higher fee than usual, but only gave me the regular rate.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kelly Services in June 2008.

    Interview Details

    Started out with a phone interview, progressed to a 1:1 interview, followed by skill testing, personality testing and background check. Both the phone and 1:1 interviews were very detailed and thorough. Was given the impression that not everyone is chosen to work for this company. I was quite impressed with the process as a whole.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    I got exactly what I asked for, there was no negotiating. I knew what the market value was for the positon I was applying for and as a negotiating tactic I overshot by $10,000 (per annum) as I was hoping to negotiate down to what I though was acceptable, my initial request was met.
