    Anonymous Interview Candidate 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 Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate 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.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at OfficeTeam in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed on my skills and my past experience that was relevant to being an administrative assistant. At first I spoke with a recruiter and then he called in another man to ask some questions to see if I would be a good fit. I was applying for anything relevant to a sales or administrative type position. I was asked questions such as "what did you do at your last position? Can you explain some of the duties you had and what skills do you think you can utilize in a new position as an administrative assistant?"

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at OfficeTeam in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Staffing consultants are TERRIBLE at returning phone calls and emails...say one thing and do another. I wondered if some of them had their head screwed on right at all. When I finally did get in for an interview, the staffing consultant I interviewed with went directly off a form as if she didn't know what she was doing. She interrupted me a time or two as well. They then proceed to tell me it will be a week for them to run my application through the legal department. I check back a week later, and they had not even started calling on my references, which meant they hadn't even done what they said they would. In the end, they sent me an email stating they did not have enough "positive" references for me. Unclear how that would happen and when I asked, I did not get a response.
