Difficult Interview

Senior Administrative Assistant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Scottsdale, AZ

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Randstad in April 2014.

Interview Details – A very reliable and thorough agency. They have found excellent positions for me. They really make their client feel valued and try to find the best match for your qualifications and skills.

Interview Question – How long to you plan on working? I am a mature worker and this question borders on age discrimination.   Answer Question

Administrative Assistant Interview

Administrative Assistant
Bloomington, IL

I interviewed at Randstad in June 2012.

Interview Details – The hiring process began online, where I applied to a position I was interested in. I was soon after contacted via e-mail to complete a couple of basic skills tests to judge my knowledge of Microsoft Office programs, as well as a typing test. After that, I was contacted over the phone to meet for an interview, and soon was placed into a position.

Interview Question – These were really basic interview questions, mainly pertaining to my experience, my goals, and what I wanted to do within my job. I can honestly say it was likely one of the easiest interviews I had experienced, due to the fact they made it about me. It was a very natural, comfortable experience overall.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation for this position. There was a set pay, and I accepted.

Minneapolis, MN

Interview Question – Interview was easy. They had the basic questions. No hardballs   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation, the rate was given up front. Take it or leave it.

Scanner Interview

Anonymous Employee
Ann Arbor, MI

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Randstad in September 2013.

Interview Details – After some sketchy job interviews, the full-time employee in charge of interviewing appeared professional. Manager proceeded to interview, then provided a start date. Interview involved peg test unrelated to potential job, and unnecessarily stressful and impractical. Manager provided more details and a different start date than the originally requested time.

Interview Question – Describe the most negative experience you have had with a former employer.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – It sucked because the salary was lower than is sustainable in my region. Management demonstrated impressive use of buzzwords in interview, yet failed to schedule according to the original start date. When the management received notice that this was not acceptable for me, they suggested that I was "bad," as opposed to remembering their scheduling failure. Be careful and if you receive an offer/ start date, get the manager to send you this immediately because if you trust them, then they said you the wrong start date in a month, you will not see maturity in their rescheduling process.

Technical Recruiter Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Interviewed at Randstad

Interview Details – I was given an interview at the college career fair center and we went through a few questions involving my greatest achievement...5 year plans, typical interview questions. I was then given a follow up interview over the phone. The next interview involved going down to El Segundo branch to do an in person interview. I met with multiple people. These were people who were going to be working with me as well as my future managers. Their questions were simple and pretty to the point. I think they wanted to hear my questions more.

Interview Question – What was your biggest accomplishment to date.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Didn't want to live in El Segundo, I also did not like that I was given 24 hours to make a decision. The inflexibility and lack of transparency made me a little nervous
