Recruiter Interview

Anonymous Employee
Minneapolis, MN

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Manpower in November 2010.

Interview Details – Application process started with online application and resume reviewal. Then, I was asked to complete an online intelligence test and an online personality assessment. After receiving passing scores, a Corporate Recruiter contacted me and interviewed me over the phone. Then, I was set up to meet with my local manager face to face. Within 3-4 days, I was called by the local manager with a job offer. Lastly, I worked with the Corporate Recruiter on compliance documents, offer letter, and start details.

Interview Questions

Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate, but should have. I would recommend doing research on what your local market is paying for a Recruiter role and negotiate the salary.

Sales Manager Interview

Sales Manager
Milwaukee, WI

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Manpower in September 2011.

Interview Details – The process was grueling, I felt that the manager was inconvenienced by having to interview me, but every time I spoke to her for an interview she talked all about herself and I didn't get a word in edge wise it seemed. Then told the recruiter she felt I wasn't interested, the recruiter then coached me on how to ask for the job. At that point I realized I didn't even want it if I had to work with a woman like that.. Sounded like a churn and burn sales job that a recent college grad would be better suited for.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time that you had to overcome adversity (it's been a while but basically that was it)   Answer Question

Staffing Specialist Interview

Staffing Specialist
Austin, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Manpower in August 2010.

Interview Details – Was recruited off a job board for this position because I had sales experience. After two phone conversations with an RPO recruiter, had an in-person interview scheduled with the branch manager. After we had interviewed for roughly 1 hour, had another unscheduled interview with the regional director. Both were very cordial and free-flowing interviews.

After 3 days, I was offered the position.

Interview Question – Walk me through your work experience.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Did not really have a negotiation phase. I was told that the salary would be at one level during the interview and was offered at $2,000 above the number.

Clerical Interview

Anonymous Employee
Columbus, OH

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Manpower in June 2009.

Interview Details – Very easy, they posted an ad on craigslist and I emailed them. They called the next day then I went in and took a series of typing tests and skills tests. I was never interviewed. After that I filled out endless paperwork and was told when and where the actual job was. The company I worked for was very pleasant besides their hourly quota. I put in my two weeks notice to return full time to school with no problem. Because they didn't really interview people some of my manpower co-workers were extremely... different.
