Payroll Manager Interview

Payroll Manager
Charlotte, NC

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Kelly Services in January 2014.

Interview Details – Telephone interview for Payroll Manager position in Charlotte NC. Recruiter explained the job in great detail as well as providing information about the company. I had specific questions and I feel that the recruiter answered them honestly and appropriately. She did not just give answers that I might have wanted to hear. I felt this recruiter would really work with me to find a job.

Interview Question – Most difficult question I had to answer in the interview is " How will I prioritize each individual engineer work" I answered "first come first served otherwise importance will place a role in the decision". One engineer did not like that answer and thought it would be a problem. Later I was told that he thinks all his work needed to be prioritized. Later told by the Kelly Manager that I should be a littler nice to him. Later I find that they were dating later was married. I was very uncomfortable.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No, I was told what I would get paid. Later moved to another position where the pay was four dollars more and I never got paid the correct amount until they mistakenly ran an ad for the same position and stated the pay. I then questioned it and received a four dollar raise.
