    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Kelly Services in May 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and was called for screen within a few days. One week later set up for interview with Regional VP for phone interview. Following that, set up for interview with another Regional VP and then with HR. I was told that after the HR interview I would be interviewing next with the hiring manager. I was never called back after this, no more interviews, no letter of rejections, no follow-up. Very unprofessional for an Employment Services company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kelly Services (Lynchburg, VA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • The usual: please describe your weakness   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    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.
