    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Kforce.

    Interview

    Two in person interviews after a phone interview. The in person interviews included two to three rounds with management. I did not have to do a sales test, but I hear that now they are needed, even though selling a pen doesn't translate to IT staffing.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Kforce (Saint Louis, MO) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Talked by phone with rep at KForce then had a face-to-face interview in the office. Basically the KForce recruiter wanted to better understand my skill set and what work I enjoyed doing to ensure he pitched me to the right clients. I really appreciated the time he took to get to know me.

    Interview

    The manager was very emotionless and crass when interviewing me. She seemed very disinterested in my answers, checking her phone every few mintues. I asked about her team which she did not give a straight answer, but sounded rather condescending.

    I applied online – interviewed at Kforce.

    Interview

    It was pretty straightforward. Personality is the key. Depends on what job you are interviewing for. Managers and coworkers are very nice when they interviewed me. It was one phone interview first with the corporate recruiter. Second round was face to face to meet managers and then last one was in-person interview as well. Met with MVP and couple colleagues.

    Interview

    Clear knowledge on the work area will be helpful. There are usually two to three rounds. One or two by the account manger to understand and match your profile and the job position. If everything works out, he will refer you to the end client and if they sort list your resume, they will call for a client interview. Clear this and you're all set.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Kforce (Salt Lake City, UT).

    Interview

    There was initial interest when I applied for a technical writer position. Several Kforce executives visited my LinkedIn page and a week later I received a call from a recruiter who said she might have a temporary job for me. I asked her to send me more information but I didn't hear from her again for a couple of weeks.

    When she called again I reminded her to send the job description. After reading it I indicated by email that I was very interested. I never heard from her again. Draw your own conclusions about doing business with Kforce.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Kforce.

    Interview

    This was more of a practice interview than anything - I currently work as a recruiter and I wanted to see what was out there.

    Scheduled a time for me and an internal recruiter to connect. She had me "launch into my experience," code word for "I don't remember what was on your resume." We talked for a bit, I told her why I wanted to leave my company (decided not to give a cookie-cutter answer) and man did she falter after that.

    I couldn't tell if she had already chalked me down as a 'no', wasn't good at selling the company, or what. Her "hot button" questions were not very good, and I lost complete interest in the company. She absentmindedly mentioned that some people there make $200k/yr - you think that's something you'd use in a pitch. BUT she made a point to mention that I would be "fighting" with the low-level recruiters for my job. You think that's something you'd omit.

    I spent the last 10-15 minutes listening to her give almost a literal laundry list of the company and the positions, almost certainly reading from a sheet of paper, as she had lost all enthusiasm. At this point I was checking my watch, wondering why she was still talking to me since we had pretty clearly established that we wouldn't want to work with each other.

    I guess she didn't want to "let me down" hard, or didn't value her time, as she sent a follow-up email urging me to reach back out to her...after looking at the LinkedIn profiles of the Directors in my area.

    As a recruiter, I still don't know how the calls *usually* go, or what she aimed to get out of it, or if I failed or passed. Chalk it up as decent experience I guess, but I wouldn't want to work there if she's any indication of the recruiting caliber at that company.
