    Temporary Employee Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at OfficeTeam in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    So far I'm not sure. It seems a lot of run around on my part. A ton of tests, and many forms. Lots of references. So far, the only thing I have liked is I was able to do the actual interview via Skype so I didn't have to come into the office. However, the recruiter seemed to be very hostile towards to me. I still have to go in and fill out paperwork. I'm with other temp agencies in the city, and it seems this one seems the most brutal. I mean, I'm not even in their database yet! It just seems like a total waste of time on my part. She also seemed to lie to me about job openings.

    Sales & Marketing Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at OfficeTeam in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and within one day I received a phone call from a recruiter telling me I seem like a good fit. The recruiter wanted to set up an in-person interview two days from the initial phone call. We met in person asked me questions about past work experiences. After that the recruiter asked what kind of work I was looking for, whether it was temporary or temp-to-hire, and what I was looking for to get paid hourly. I said what my ideal hourly rate was and what I was willing to settle for. The recruiter said my expectations were unrealistic and significantly reduced the hourly pay rate below what I was willing to settle for, even though the hourly pay calculator on their website told me the pay per hour I was looking for was the median pay for the type of work I am looking for.

    Overall, the interview lasted about twenty minutes.

    Sales & Marketing Assistant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at OfficeTeam.

    Interview Details

    I applied this position online and after few days, someone called me and asked me if I have time to do an interview. The interview is pretty simple, no tricky questions. However, they need me to work immediately. Unfortunately, I really can't. Anyway, the people there are really friendly and helpful. But I think it's not for someone who is looking for full time positions.

    Temporary Employee Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at OfficeTeam in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview itself was very simple and not intimidating at all. I had met the local recruiter at a few job fairs so reached out to her by telephone and she was very quick to return my call and email me with additional information. There were several online assessments that were required, which took maybe an hour to complete. Next was the face-to-face interview, which is held in their local office in downtown Norfolk where there is little to no free parking and there was no parking validation (so be prepared to spend about $3-$6 for parking). The interview was with the recruiter, so that made it a bit less intimidating. She told me what to expect next and who I could contact from that point on. That is where the positive side of the process ended for me. I made myself available immediately following Christmas and even called first thing Monday morning to inquire about any positions for me, but was quickly told they had nothing for me yet and to "call back in another week & half to two weeks to inform them of my availability while I continue my job search myself." Two weeks later I called again and was then told (by another person) that there were problems reaching my contacts (not sure if anyone had even tried because my contacts I gave them said they were never contacted before then) and they could not move forward until that had been taken care of. Within two days I received a phone call from the second person I had talked with and she informed me I was being moved to the background check, which was performed by the legal department in a different state and should only take a few days. I called a few weeks ago to find out my status was told by a third person that legal was still performing the background check and they could not place me until that was completed. That has been a few weeks ago and I have given up on this temp agency, especially after I found another agency that was able to get me an interview within just 4 days.

    Staffing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Stamford, CT
    Anonymous Employee in Stamford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at OfficeTeam in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed for position in Stamford CT branch. A recruiter pulled my resume off careerbuilder, called me for an interview. Interviewed twice, first interview with recruiter in private room. Basic interview, asked about experiences on my resume- a lot of 'tell me about that'. No curve balls, went well, had second interview two days later. Was shown the main trading floor, shadowed a recruiter, then had interview with branch manager, went well. Followed up a week later saying that they enjoyed meeting with me, but wanted someone with more experience. They were courteous and professional, and took the time to call me to tell me I didn't get the job, rather than an automated message or no communication.

    Part Time Administrative/Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Columbus, OH
    Anonymous Employee in Columbus, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at OfficeTeam in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a position and talked to someone on the phone and they asked me to come in for a live interview. The place was very professional and clean and the woman working the front desk was friendly and helpful. I had to ask her about how to fill out one form and she instructed me easily. I then went back into one of (four?) little conference rooms not far off the main waiting room. First we walked through my story of where I've worked and what I've done and then what I was looking for. Next she went through my resume with me and pointed out some ways to improve it and ways to adapt it for what position I was going for. Also she gave me some interviewing tips and what to wear, etc. All very positive experience. She said I could hear back from any OfficeTeam staff with a job position. She herself was going out on maternity leave soon, but they all had the info.

    Interview Questions
    • My most difficult question won't be the same for everyone. It was - exactly what do you want to do. I told her I would be willing to work in a large radius and in lots of different fields and I didn't specify pay, even though as I was offered things later, I definitely had a pay I wanted to stay above. With her being out, I wasn't sure who to go to to narrow things down so I just see what is offered and go from there.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    They sent me on an interview and did a great job prepping me with what to wear and the website of the company so I could research them beforehand, etc. However, the pay was below what I should have been going for and truly I knew I would not be passionate about the job. I politely declined. I don't think what I'm looking for exists and I think more school and/or going back full time are my only options at this point.
