    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Manpower (Tampa, FL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview: First there were questions about personal work, and computer experience. Then specific questions about how I would deal with a difficult customer, or situation. Then I was send an e-mail link to complete an online computer competency test - which I passed. Then the process would move on to the final interview, which I didn't get. This was surprising as I aced the phone and computer competency tests, and the interviewer was very eager to hire me. I was told that I would get a call that afternoon to complete the process and be hired. I am not sure what mysterious happenings went on in between. Tried to contact and did not get a reply - not professional!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Manpower (Jackson, TN) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Job was not completely described in details at the time of the initial call to set up the interview. Pay rate was not the same at the time of the interview. Minimal details about the company other that the position can on be filled by a non-tobacco user. Company would not hire anyone that even smoked socially. Dates for previous jobs not related to the job description seemed to be more of an issue. Did not have an acceptable interview process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Manpower.

    Interview

    Very intense. I went through 4 rounds of interviews. 3 phone screens (due to management being out of state) and 1 face to face. The last step is a culture fit interview to make sure that you're a good fit for the company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Manpower.

    Interview

    This interview required availability for most of the day. It involved an in-person interview with a supervisor to become familiar with you. Secondly, I needed to complete some Microsoft Office Suite testing. This was to determine your overall skills level with MS Office. After that, I met with the supervisor again and she stated that someone would call me about any prospective jobs. I needed to follow-up after not hearing anything for three weeks. After that call, I was notified within a week about a temp. job. I took that job which lasted several months until the end of its term. Then, I took another job with a financial services company. I was a temp for that company for a year until they wanted to hire me as a permanent employee. It was a great experience.
