    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed 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.

    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.

Difficult industry, Manpower is the biggest player but there are many small firms in the space.

    Back and forth a few times. Got $2,500 more than initial base salary offer, with a large bonus potential. Bonus was never realized ($0). Process took over 4 months...ridiculous. Also, no formal 1:1 onboarding. In hindsight, I would have never accepted this offer.
