    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Manpower (Milwaukee, WI) in January 2014.

    Interview

    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 Questions

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

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Salary and hours are same for everyone.
