Help Desk Agent Interview

Anonymous Employee
Muncie, IN

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Manpower in June 2012.

Interview Details – I had a phone interview, the offered for me to do some testing online at home but the web site would not work through my internet service so I had to go into their office. They scheduled for me to go through several different test sections and then I had two different interviews. I was then scheduled for an orientation on a later date at the main brainch at the same location.

Interview Question – The questions were all basic as to my availability and how comfortible I was with the product I would be doing technical support for.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was not really any negotiation, they told me what the client had to offer, it was not very appealing but it was a job and I needed on at the time so I took it and you just accepted what they offered.

Associate Recruiter Interview

Anonymous Employee
Milwaukee, WI

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Manpower in January 2014.

Interview Details – Process began in November 2013. I applied for the position after speaking with a current employee in late October. First interview was a phone interview, which was basically just a screening. Recruiter talked to me about salary, job responsibilities,and asked if I was okay with that. When the conversation was over she offered to schedule an in person interview with a manager, but was unable to set a date until January because of lack of business. In early January I was contacted to schedule an in person interview. It was a group interview setting where they first explained the expectations, etc of the position and then they took people one by one to be interviewed by two current employees with basic questions about experience and availability. I was then taken back to the group to wait for a interview with two out of four managers. After about 3 weeks I was offered the job and accepted.

Interview Question – No hard questions, very basic questions about experience and explaining resume.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Salary and hours are same for everyone.
