Temporary Employee Interview

Temporary Employee

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 days - interviewed at OfficeTeam.

Interview Details – When I started in 2008, the placement team was excellent. Professional, friendly, good interviewing skills. You came away with a sense that they were interested in you as a candidate, and wanted to work to find a good fit on placement

Temporary Employee Interview

Temporary Employee
Indian Wells, CA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at OfficeTeam in January 2014.

Interview Details – I filled out an application online about two weeks later I received a call to go over my application and to come in for an interview with the office manager. Prior to the interview I was emailed a link with three assessments to complete. First was a basic math/comprehension/reading assessment, Second was testing on basic office skills such as alphabetical and numerical filing, the knowledge of Microsoft Word and Excel. Third was a typing test. I was also told to bring a resume, cover letter, picture identification card and my social security card.

When I stepped into the office, the environment was welcoming. I checked in with the front office assistant and she gave me forms to fill out which included W-2 and I-9 forms. She also asked for my identification card and Social to make copies, at first I questioned her and she said they need it for their records to continue my application process (I assumed background purposes).

I was then called in by the office manager and the district manager. They did small talk about their company and what they expect of their employees. They asked me general questions about my past work experiences, school, and what type of office knowledge I have. They went over my resume and cover letter, made notes on how to improve it. Next thing I know they are telling me they will be calling me for any temp positions available.

Interview Question – They did not ask any difficult questions. They were general and more of "a get to know you" conversation.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Since it is a temporary agency, there is no negotiation. They pay you when you take on an assignment.

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.
