I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Kelly Services.
Interview Details – I submitted a resume online and was contacted within the week. After a few phone interviews and an online application I was required to go to my local Kelly office and fill out more paperwork. Altogether it took about 2-3 weeks for the interview/hiring process and I had to wait another 2-3 weeks to start training. Everyone I talked to was extremely professional in their dealings with me but the paperwork and the waiting periods were tedious.

Very Difficult Interview
I applied through a recruiter and 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 Question – 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.
Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Kelly Services.
Interview Details – The office was small. The staff was personable. I was talked "to" instead of being talked "at". It wasn't assumed that my skills were lacking just because I was temping instead of already being somewhere permanent.

Negotiation Details – There was no real negotiation phase. There was a position opening and I said yes.
I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Kelly Services in June 2013.
Interview Details – I first applied by sending them my résumé. 2 days later I received an email to schedule a phone interview. I had the interview scheduled for the next day. Questions were pretty easy customer service scenario questions. I didn't get asked any technical questions which was surprising. That same day I received their official application and background check form which I completed and sent to them the next day. 2 days later I received a call telling me to come in and fill out my I-9 forms tomorrow.
Interview Question – Try and convince me to use your pen. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. It's either you take it or decline offer.
I applied online - interviewed at Kelly Services in January 2013.
Interview Details – Took about a month to contact me, had two interviews before getting an offer via email. Had to continually call in order to get my paperwork finalized before I could start. Missed two training start dates because of this ineptitude.
Interview Question – What is iCloud and what does it do? Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Kelly Services in June 2013.
Interview Details – I filled out the initial application and received a call back the next day. I spoke with a recruiter and she went over the job description and asked if I agreed to several different questions in which I answered "Yes". I do not have a lot of experience using an IPod/IPad, but mentioned that I had the opportunity to use it at least once. I compiled a list of questions and she kept answering with the same response, "IPod and IPad". Of course it wasn't the same question, but I wanted to be thorough in what I would be doing, troubleshooting, and what equipment would be needed on my part. She seemed kind of rude.
Interview Question – She wanted me to do a role-play with her on what to do with a customer who is receiving an error message "server not found". I just did not know how to start, not having a lot of experience in role-playing scenarios, but a lot of customer service experience and taking escalated calls playing a role as supervisor in my previous work.
