    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tampa Palms, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at ManpowerGroup (Tampa Palms, FL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Very unorganized and disjointed from the start. I spoke with a recruiter in Wisconsin who was unprofessional and came off as rude. He was also dishonest having told a flat out lie that I would be contacted and never was. He was very brief on the call and robotic. It's sad because he is representative of Manpower and I was highly disappointed.

    Interview

    Phone screen, followed by 2 on-site interviews. Phone screen was more like a full on interview than the typical screen. Process took about 2 months. Most questions were typical "in your experience, state a time when _________." Nothing out of the ordinary.

    Interview Questions

    • The executive I met with however wasn't really interested in my portfolio as much as he was getting to know me and my interests. I had prepared to talk about my work and it threw me off.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at ManpowerGroup.

    Interview

    There was a detailed hiring process. I went through 3 separate interviews before being offered the position and then hired. The office was clean and the staff very professional. Everyone involved in the hiring process was pleasant and welcoming. Each of the interviewers had a different title/level within the company. I was impressed by the details each interviewer had about different aspects of the job I was applying for. Non of the questions were too difficult, just your standard "how did you handle this..." type of questioning.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked about supervisory experience. How I handled a difficult employees regarding attendance issues and work performance.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was not much give in the pay range, initially. I would definitely use your prior experience as a negotiation tool. They will start as low as possible, when in reality, they can go much higher.

    Propsal Writer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ManpowerGroup.

    Interview

    Interviews conducted by members of HR, Team Leads, Group Director and Hiring Manager. As I was applying for a remote position, all interviews were conducted by phone. Interviews were scheduled in a timely fashion, and the schedule was adhered to. Each member of the staff was very forthcoming and provided great information. Nothing was rushed or insincere. Extremely thorough interview process, which proves that ManpowerGroup is very much "walking the talk" of looking for the best fit for their positions, not simply a warm body.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any difficult or unexpected questions. Pretty standard interview process of being asked real life scenario based questions. "Give an example of a time you..."   Answer Question
