    Judicial Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Kelly Services (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    I was recommended by EEOC (Equal Opportunity Employment Commission),Paralegals and Legal team, the federal government was in a hiring freeze at the time, so they forward a recommendation, from a paralegal, who knew someone who had been in the judicial Court system for several years.
    .
    I worked for them on a temporary basis, through Kelly Services in Phoenix Arizona.
    The Judicial Court interview was short as they filled all the answers to required questions and I was already temporarily employed with EEOC, so they do not recommend lightly and knew I was looking for full time employment.

    The Interview was short, because of recommendations, and work skills, support to legal and paralegal
    and multitasking, was available in the recommendation. We worked well in this Central and District Central office in real team sense.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Kelly Services.

    Interview

    3 interviews. Phone interview/screening. Face to face with hiring manager. Last interview Face to face with VP of Sales, another manager, recruiter and hiring manager. Interviews lasted 2.5 hours. Everyone had a different goal when interviewing me. Hiring manager ended the interview with needing to talk with everyone and would call me the next week.
    I did receive positive feedback and was told I was recommended for the position. Hiring manager called all references and wanted to put an offer letter together. Two weeks later was told an internal employee applied and needed to give a courtesy interview still wanted to hire me. Six weeks later no offer letter.
    I was really interested and would have accepted the offer letter if it would have been offered. Not happy with the run around. I would have rather had the truth and moved on.

    Tier I Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Kelly Services in April 2015.

    Interview

    I completed an online application and did an assessment. The assessment was interesting - you had to rate different responses to customer situations on a sliding scale. After I passed the assessment, you are brought to a page where you can choose an interview time from an available list. I picked one for two days later.

    The interviewer called me just a few minutes after the scheduled time. He asked about how I was doing and went over the position requirements - confirming with each one if I could handle it. He then asked some behavioral questions about customer service, questions about my experience, and a couple basic tech questions. The answers didn't seem to matter as much as your confidence.

    He then told me he was able to make a provisional offer based on everything coming back alright. I needed to click a link from an email he sent, fill out some paperwork online, have a witness sign that I am who I say, and wait for a background check.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Kelly Services in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online to a consumer affairs rep position with a very notable company (national brand, local office). I was contacted by a Kelly Services rep within a week of applying. Initial interview lasted about 17 minutes, and then I was directed to the Kelly Services website to complete my application (for background check purposes). Within 5 days, I was contacted by Kelly Services to schedule an on-site interview with the national company. Kelly rep was very friendly and helpful, and I had an interview scheduled within days. Unfortunately, nothing the Kelly Rep said in an email about what to expect (a Kelly rep who would meet me, the three leaders I was supposed to meet) actually occurred. I arrived 10 minutes before interview was scheduled to start and met with someone who wasn't in the interview confirmation email. The in-person lasted 25 minutes, and I felt rushed. It was clear the person who interviewed me did it because they "had to", and honestly, I wasn't even sure if I was interviewing for the right position (my interviewer had no idea who I was, my background or experience) - I reached out to my Kelly Services rep right away and within a few days, I was contacted that both the situation and outcome would be researched. My rep thanked me for informing Kelly Services of my experience - it's been over 48 hours, and I still haven't heard anything. I'm assuming I wasn't a fit for the position (which is fine) but actual interview experience was still odd. Overall, Kelly Services has been very helpful, just wish the in-person interview experience hadn't been so awkward and unexpected. I would have liked the chance to speak with and impress the right people vs. someone who viewed my interview as a burden.

    Interview Questions

    • Most difficult questions were in the in-person: "why do you feel you're a fit for (said notable company) given your experience?" - not the most difficult question I've ever been asked, but given the circumstances, I was a little thrown off.   1 Answer
    • "I've never heard of your XYZ company you work for before..."   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Kelly Services.

    Interview

    Involved and thorough. Initial call was from Talent Acquisition, phone with Regional VP, then four other interviews -- HR, another RVP, the final with Div VP and RVP. It was pretty standard in my experience. There is a point person from TA to guide the process, that is always helpful to have someone as point for questions and to help guide.

    Manufacturing Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Juncos, PR

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Kelly Services (Juncos, PR).

    Interview

    It was with the client. The process overall was a challenging one. You have to be very aware of every detail to be successful on the interview. The one thing that will always help is to go prepared on every aspect. I took the time to know about the company and it helped to be smooth on the interview that it turned more like a conversation, which helped to wiped out the nervousness of the moment.
