Application Details

I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Kforce.

Interview Details

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.

    I went in as a client but got called for an interview for a permanent recruiting position. The initial interview was very laid-back. It was more of an informational session to gauge if you are interested or not.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Kforce in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Phone screen with HR (typical HR screen. The gal didn't know much about the job but seemed to be asking more personality and salary questions) then in person with the manager of the office. Nice guy but sounds like your typical burn and churn recruiting company. I've interviewed with several in the area and they all seem to be the same. a 12 hour work day is not enticing to me. Also doesn't seem as though they have a solid training program but I could be wrong.

    Interview Questions

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Kforce.

    Interview Details

    I first had a phone screen, then an online test, and lastly 3 seperate interviews that were very unecessary. The people who interviewed me lied straight to my face. I was hired on the spot during my 3rd interview. There was one hitch regarding scheduling, but asides from that, it was fairly straight forward.

    The process took a day - interviewed at Kforce in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    KForce has got to be the most unprofessional company I have ever interviewed for. Out of all the technical consulting firms, they seem to pay the lowest and are not on top of their game. The recruiter who reached out to me was 100% incompetent, she did not know how to conduct herself on the phone and did not give me any details about the job. In middle of the conversation, she accidentally hung up and I had to call her back. She seemed to have "forgotten" that she was briefing me about the job and just set me up for an interview with two managers. I arrived to the interview the following week and she did not greet me when I got there. She also never sent me any emails confirming the meeting. I was led to a conference room by a receptionist where I waited for half an hour and then was greeted by a very sloppy man who did not even have a business card. He briefed me about the job and then conducted the most unprofessional, messy, interview of all time. He did not retain any info. I told him and seemed to not care that he was conducting an interview. He talked about himself more than anything and explained that it was a high stress job. Judging from their quiet floor and the fact that he wasn't even wearing a tie, I would disagree. He then went to look for the other manager, who I bet was still asleep at home because he was no where to be found. Good job, KForce, way to be prepared. When I left, I still did not meet the incompetent internal recruiter, nor did I get a business card from the manager. Needless to say, it was a waste of my time and I never followed up. Neither did they. I would stay away from this company if I were you and look into Robert Half International, I had a much better experience there.

    The process took a day - interviewed at Kforce in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    A corporate recruiter called me for a recruiter position serving their clients. She asked me a few questions about my experience, talked about the job and then told me it was an entry level position. I aksed her what about the position made it entry and she replied the salary (40K - 45K base) made it entry level. I said if the bonus potential made it worthwhile I might be interested. She then said she would pass on my resume to the hiring manager. I never heard back.

    Interview Details

    Had one interview with the Director and then and additional interview with the team members in the department I would be working. Overall the interview was nothing out of the normal. Basic questions about getting to know you and getting to know them. Focused on what I could bring to Kforce along with work ethic.
