    Interview Questions

    • meeting with RVP is going to be consistently awkward as they are somewhat robotic but then there is always that one question that is out of left field, review their website, try to get the branch manager on your side and if they like your personality and raven test then they'll give you clues to the RVP interview. If they don't give you assistance during the interview process then you pretty much know where you stand. They're a big company, compartmentalized and not very agile or forward thinking, it shouldn't be rocket science to disect their hogan test and figure out what they're looking for in the rest of the interview process. Solid benefits, solid perks when you do well.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not extensive, just straight forward, between myself and their corporate recruiter, don't negotiate with your branch manager obviously.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Randstad Holding (Athens (Greece)).

    Interview

    Applied CV through company website. They called me and arranged first interview. The process included 2 more interviews through the top management. The interviews were a bit salesy to make me want to work at the company, some things were presented in a more charming way that they really were. I believe that the interviews were not really depicting the true picture.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Randstad Holding (Ghent (Belgium)).

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process took a long time and included several interviews (if I remember correctly with the HR Officer, HR Manager, Regional Manager, Office Manager) and a number of tests and an assessment session (which included a role play to test multitasking skills). After all of the tests and conversations, a personality profile was set up and this was discussed as last step of the assessment/testing day, which gave the chance to respond to their findings.

    Interview Questions

    • Most difficult questions to answer were those about personality given that there is no wrong or right answer in a lot of cases.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was given the impression that there was no room for negotiations, however salary was very low. Best advice is to start with Randstad early in your career...

One from Mafoi Randstad Rep. and the other from Google HR. You have to speak very fluently+politely and the answers must be spontaneous. Always make proper sense while you are expressing your self.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Randstad Holding in March 2012.

    Interview

    I met with the Branch Manager who asked me very good questions for an hour and a half. He told me a little about the position, the company and the positives he sees in me. I could tell it went well. He asked me to complete a Personality Assessment (by Chally) and depending on the results, he would have me speak to the VP of the company. My results were "favourable" so I went on to have a phone interview with the VP. She asked me few questions, but spent most time trying to convince me how difficult the job is/will be and how high the turnover rate is. I listened, thanked her for her time and told her I will consider all she had said and will make an informed decision on whether I can do this or not. She was pleased with my consideration. I believe they want to see your drive and determination, as well they want to tell people that the job is not a walk in the park so if you want it, you'll have to work to keep it!

    Interview Questions

    • We have very strict KPI's here. Do you work well with such structure?   Answer Question

    Negotiation
