Consultant Interview

Consultant
Falls Church, VA

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Manpower.

Interview Details – The hiring and inteview process was very simple and straightforward. You meet with a representative from the company, you let them know what pay you are willing to accept, etc. You will then watch a video, complete paperwork and take any related skills tests. Overall the process took about 1 hour.

Interview Question – Most difficult is trying to determine the lowest pay you are willing to accept. I would recommend anyone starting out not to low ball themselves.   Answer Question

Sales Executive Interview

Anonymous Employee
Houston, TX

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Manpower in August 2012.

Interview Details – Sales professionals that are applying with Manpower must be prepared to pass a timed Wonderlic test and you must pass in order to move forward to the first interview. If you've never taken the Wonderlic be sure to look it up and practice.

Interview Question – If you do not understand a question do not guess! Ask the interviewer to please "clarify". I know this sounds like common sense but the interviewers are looking to see if you will ask for more clarification in order to answer correctly or simply ramble on and talk from your rear end.   Answer Question

Branch Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Stamford, CT

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Manpower in June 2012.

Interview Details – The hiring and interview process was very lengthy but the company truly tries to match the best qualified candidate to the position. First, i interviewed with a company recruiter after I placed my resume online with resume rabbit. i received a one line questions asking if I was interested in a Branch Manager position? I responded yes. I did well with the first two interviews with the company recruiters and took an online examination. From there, I had a behavioral interview with another HR person. From there, I interviewd with the Regional Manager and another Branch manager at the same time. The process then proceeded to the EVP of Sales for the whole country. This last interview was by telephone. I was offered the position one week later.

Interview Question – How do you think you can manage selling a service as opposed to a tangible product?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Salary. The company will pay what is competitive and fair for your skills and economic environment.

Insurance Agent Interview

Anonymous Employee
Fort Collins, CO

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Manpower in June 2012.

Interview Details – When interviewing for the position, there wasn't a lot of detail provided about the position. I was asked if I would like to try this position, and I accepted. Following the interview with the client, I asked for more money and was granted a slightly higher salary.

Interview Questions

  • Are you willing to give the company all of your ability to succeed in this position   View Answer
  • I was asked what I liked or disliked the most about my previous employment.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Short and sweet....I asked the Manpower representative, "Of the candidates you are sending out for this interview, who has the greatest education and work experience?" She told me that I was the higer rated candidate and that is when I asked for a little more money. I held to my conviction and was granted a slightly higher starting hourly wage because of my own belief in my own ability.
