Temporary Employee Candidate Interview

Temporary Employee Candidate
Nashville, TN

I applied through a staffing agency and interviewed at OfficeTeam.

Interview Details – Interview with one of their staff recruiters. A number of telephone calls about other interviews. I was finally placed when they called and said they needed to fill XX positions but they couldn't give accurate job description. Turns out, a lot of what I was promised during that phone conversation and subsequent e-mails was a lie.

Administrative Assistant

I interviewed at OfficeTeam in May 2014.

Executive Assistant Interview

Executive Assistant

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at OfficeTeam in March 2010.

Interview Details – Lengthy. Insulting question asked "Have you used state benefits within the last year?" I have not. However, who in this economy have not who would never have even considered it previous to this recession? That question strongly implies discrimination and bias.

Recruiter Interview

Recruiter
Wilmington, DE

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at OfficeTeam.

Interview Details – I was contacted by the recruiter after submitting my resume for a couple of positions. She called me for a screening of my background and invited me for an interview. Friendly atmosphere at the office, but long wait and lots of paperwork to fill out before going to the interview. I met with two recruiters, both friendly and to the point. Not much info on the two jobs given though, felt as if the interview was more for candidate screening purposes than for the candidate to learn more about the position. I did get the opportunity to interview with one of the clients but haven't yet had the interview.

Interview Question – Not really anything hard or unusual   Answer Question
