Pricing Analyst Interview

Pricing Analyst

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Kelly Services in January 2014.

Interview Details – Applied through a job board. The initial communication was prompt and professional and I had a good experience until the actual phone interview. The first question the recruiter asked was in regards to what I was making at my current position. I politely declined to answer but the recruiter kept pressing. Felt uncomfortable at this point. I eventually offered a range but the recruiter persisted for the exact figure; in the end, I let up and divulged my number.

At this point, I felt the interviewer switch off -- the job in question wasn't a match in terms of salary. Okay, fine. I was still interested in job specifics and had a few questions about responsibilities. However, the recruiter wasn't very informed -- I had the job description printed out in front of me and the recruiter was only able to regurgitate what I already knew, almost word by word.

Overall, not a a terribly positive experience.

Interview Question – How much are you making at your current job?   Answer Question

Test Evaluator Interview

Test Evaluator

Interviewed at Kelly Services

Interview Details – I started as a test evaluator and there was no interview. What they called an interview was asking for a copy of a college diploma. They made a copy of it, went over the company rules and expectations then had me do a test on the computer. The test wasn't a pass fail, it was to see which subject one would be strongest to grade in. A start date was given and we were free to go.

Interview Question – They didn't ask anything   Answer Question
