Customer Service Representative Interview

Customer Service Representative
Cleveland, TN

I applied online - interviewed at Randstad in June 2014.

Interview Details – Was invited to a "career fair." Showed up for interview and was told they couldn't find me anything because I was "overqualified." They said they only pay $8-$10 an hour. They tried to tell me to go apply where they pay more money. However I had already heard of that place and was not interested. They did not offer to test my skills or anything. It was a very unhelpful temp service.

Interview Question – Why didn't you want to stay at your last job?   Answer Question

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Randstad.

Interview Details – After being computer skills tested for an hour and a half and filling out multiple employment forms, I was directed to sit with a consultant to go over my skills in order to match me with an open position. I sat down to speak with the consultant, only to be told that based on my resume, she could not find me a job. She did not tell me what was wrong with my resume or what I could do to make it better. She simply dismissed me.

Temp Worker Interview

Temp Worker
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Randstad in April 2014.

Interview Details – The initial phone call was very energetic and seemed promising; we set up an in-person interview for later that week.

The recruiter was very nice and the interview was pleasant; questioning involved prior work history, salary/duration expectations, and some specifics about your resume.

Interview Question – Why I obtained a degree from one industry, but was looking for work in another (unrelated) industry.   Answer Question

Human Resources Manager Interview

Human Resources Manager
Swedesboro, NJ

I interviewed at Randstad in April 2014.

Interview Details – Initial conversation was energetic. However feedback and overall communication was lacking. No follow up email or call, you seem to just fall in a black hole. With so many people being unemployed it does not make sense to not communicate or return phone calls when feedback is solicited. Disappointed in overall communication and response. As an HR Manager I will definitely not be using this company as I don't care for their practices.

Interview Question – Basic interview questions nothing out of the norm   Answer Question

Data Entry Clerk Interview

Data Entry Clerk
Phoenix, AZ

I applied online - interviewed at Randstad in April 2012.

Interview Details – You fill out an application and then they set you up with a test depending on what you do and then they see the test scores and base your jobs and pay on the test but that's not how it happen for me, then they put you on assignment, sometimes they sent me on jobs that I was qualified to do and then there clients tell you that they will call you and never call you, one of my experience was with JP Morgan they wanted me to come in three times I only went two with no success. I know that I had to be a good match are they would not have told me to go to the place but never got the job.

Interview Question – What do your parents do for a living.   View Answer
