Very Difficult Interview

"Put A Face With the Name" Interview

"Put A Face With the Name"
Stamford, CT

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Kforce in July 2014.

Interview Details – This turns out to be a fishing exercise. They told me after I went into their office that the ad they posted on their website was, in their words, a "dummy post." I am to continue to apply to their on line posts. They specifically asked that I email them, noting their seven digit posting code, and NOT to apply through their website.

Interview Question – I asked them if they had any assignments for me.   View Answer

Difficult Interview

Talent Qualification Specialist Interview

Talent Qualification Specialist
New York, NY

The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Kforce.

Interview Details – The phone interview was great. Felt like I connected with the interviewer. Based on my qualifications doing commission-based recruiting and retail/managerial experience in dealing with employees, I felt that I was a good fit on paper. But when I met with the interviewer, I should have taken certain things into consideration such as myself being the last interviewee and certain things in my background that did not impress him, but only stirred up more questions. He asked me a tricky question when really, it was a question within a question that could have been phrased differently in which I thought I answered correctly. Coming from a generalist recruiting role into a sourcing position that pays less than my last fulltime job seems with literally--all the interest in the world to learn and be molded into the kforce success culture was not good enough for this individual. Felt as if I was under the microscope only to be criticized, but honesty seemed to open myself up that day.

Talent Qualification Specialist Interview

Talent Qualification Specialist

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Kforce in March 2014.

Interview Details – -An assessment test that is basically a personality test -very common sense, answer how your boss would want you to. If you don't pass it, which is hard not to, you probably won't get an interview
-In-person interview with at least two rounds with two talent representatives/managers/director asking you questions such as:
-What motivates you?
-Why Kforce?
-What do you know about Kforce?
-What makes you a good candidate here?
-Tell us about yourself: Where are you from, your background, where did you go to school, what other things have you done, what are your interests?
-What have you accomplished the most in life?
I was prepped by my recruiter the night before and wasn't nervous. You just have to own the conversation. Be confident.

Interview Question – What is your biggest fear?
If you could start your own business or company, what would you do?

Designer (Contract Position) Interview

Designer (Contract Position)
Tampa, FL

I applied through other source and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Kforce.

Interview Details – I found out about the position through a local design chapter and submitted my resume directly to the hiring manager. Within 4 days I had my initial phone interview.
My in-person panel interview was 10 days later. Prior to the interview, I was sent the names and titles of the managers and team members I would be meeting with. This allowed me time to research each person. The entire interview took a little over 2 hours. The hiring manager spent the initial 30 minutes interviewing me, then I met with 5 members in the department individually for 15 minutes each for a question and answer session. At the end of the sessions the hiring manager came back and answered any additional questions I had. It was a very structured process and it gave me an excellent idea of the people I could be working with on a day-to-day basis. The biggest consideration besides skills, was finding the right candidate that would fit in well with the marketing team.
I was offered the position 2 days later.

Interview Question – Nothing out of the ordinary, the typical questions such as: Describe your work style and process? Tell me about a time when you had to deal with a difficult person at work.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The contract position had a non-negotiated hourly rate.
