Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Manpower (Scranton, PA) in April 2015.

Interview

Worst interview process I've ever had. Took back the offer to hire me because I couldn't start immediately due to wanting to put two weeks notice in at my current employer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Manpower (Austin, TX) in August 2010.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    Negotiation

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Manpower (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Received an initial phone call from HR and had a brief phone interview, had another phone interview 2 days later with the Lead Recruiter in HR. The phone interviews went well so they set up an interview for me with the Branch Manager. During the interview we talked about my background and he told me more about their business. Received call a couple days later for a final interview with the Regional Director. It was very casual and relaxing, as we were talking more about what Manpower wants to do in the future and how I can fit in the plan. Got a call from HR with their job offer and accepted.
