    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Contract Attonrey Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – 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 Questions
    • 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.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed 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.

    Interview Details

    This is not a quick process, expect lots of paperwork, digging for dates, slow background checks and redundant hr forms. Managers conducting interviews are good but you have to do 4-6 interviews as standard and really a pain.
