Staffing Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Randstad US.

Interview Details – Hiring was FAST. It took less than 2 weeks total from the short phone interview to the in person interview. I was given an offer the next day. I had little experience for the position.

Interview Question – Easiest interview I've ever been through which should have been my first warning. Very basic questions and no situational selling or role play.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Asked for a day to think about it and they countered my base $2k higher the next day.

Branch Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Randstad US in April 2013.

Interview Details – A preliminary phone screen followed by personality assessment. It is a make or break test outlining you as a fit for the company. If successful you will have another phone interview with someone on the local leadership team and two more assessments taken either in the office or at home, the Wonderlic and the Raven. Do your research about what the tests consist of. They are not difficult, but they are timed. You only need to pass one of them for consideration. I then had three more phone interviews and one in-person before being tendered an offer. The process is quick, less than 10 days before I received an offer.

Interview Question – What is your understanding of the position?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Very little negotiation. They are a numbers company and the job pays "X."

Organizational Support Specialist Interview

Anonymous Employee
Bloomington, IL

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Randstad US in September 2010.

Interview Details – I went through the interview process, which was pretty standard. After I applied, I did a phone interview, and then a face to face interview. After that, I took a skills assessment test online, to evaluate my computer skills. I was then told that I'd be notified when a position opened up. I was offered one, and then was notified it was no longer available. This happened twice! Finally, the third time, the position stuck, and I enjoyed working it for over 3 years.

Interview Question – Probably about what specific computer skills I had.   View Answer

Very Easy Interview

Packaging Interview

Anonymous Employee
Sanford, FL

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Randstad US in July 2010.

Interview Details – They're not very picky since they're always having to hire. Background in manufacturing is good but not required. You MUST pass the drug test. Wear non-slip, oil-resistant shoes to the interview, not need for formal dress. You're not allowed any jewelry, fake nail/eyelashes, or nail polish so don't get made up for the interview. It's manufacturing, not a beauty pageant.

Interview Question – The paper you fill out for basic information has some small math problems on it, but if you passed the third grade you should be fine.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – You might be able to negotiate your shift, but that's it. There is shift differential.
