Senior Staffing Supervisor Interview

Senior Staffing Supervisor
Lynchburg, VA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Kelly Services in April 2014.

Interview Details – First received an email requesting a phone interview (about 45 min) with branch manager mainly asking about my background and experience, the following day had an in-person interview (2 hours) talking with branch manager. Super nice, made me feel very comfortable, discussed my background, the job and the business in more detail. By the following week I had a job offer which I accepted. Seems like they will be a great company to work for.

Interview Question – The usual: please describe your weakness   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Very relaxed. I was called in about a week after interview to discuss salary details and complete paperwork for background check etc. I did not negotiate much since I was pleased with the initial offer. The manager explained how bonuses would factor in as well. It sounds like if you are driven the income potential is there.
