I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Randstad US (Seattle, WA) in February 2015.
I went to meet with the branch manager. She wasn't in, so I met with someone else. He was very nice, but I'm still not sure if I have the job. You know. Typical temp agency. I was there an hour. They put me in their system. I need to be submitted for the job, but I still don't know if I have it yet.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days – interviewed at Randstad US (Valley City, OH) in February 2015.
It was an easy process, but they man who was doing the interview looked bored. He described the job while I was doing the drug test, which was in the mouth. After I passed, we walked around the building so I can take everything in. I thought it would be a good fit.

The interview process was quick and comfortable with an individuals who makes you feel relaxed. This ensured a smooth interview with no hesitations. Was only interview by the hiring manager (there was only one face-to-face interview). Did have a brief phone screen interview with recruiter before initial interview.

Hiring and interview process was good, recruiters are quite accommodating and very clear with information and expectations. They start you with over the phone interview and then invite to a face to face interview if you are successful.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Randstad US (San Francisco, CA) in December 2014.
They brought us in on a group interview for an executive recruiter position at first, followed by individual interviews with the manager and the team leads.
The 2nd interview is more of them covering the metrics of their company in order to achieve success, totally doable. Followed by meeting their team lead, who was a really nice guy.
I made it through 2 rounds of interviews, but when it finally came to scheduling time to meet the team and doing a typical half day to see what it's like in the life of a recruiter, I kept following up and emailing as it was the holidays and didn't want to miss the opportunity to schedule something.
They told me they would schedule right away, but I would never hear anything. I followed up with the manager, the team lead and another recruiter who scheduled my interview, but no one replied to my emails. Eventually, after 3 weeks of hearing nothing, they stopped replying to my emails, so I never got the last interview.
Upon reflection, they tried to sell me on that they really valued the people they work with and people they interview, saying that "livelihoods were on the line." However, I could never wrap my head around why it was so difficult to send an email or make a phone call to me, if anything, to say they were moving forward with other candidates. Most recruiters would agree that an email is effortless. I could have pursued this a lot further; however, I don't think that a company with this kind of follow-up would be one that I could seriously consider being a part of or backing, if that's an established pattern.
Sweet people, but bad communication and follow up. Interview with caution with these folks.

Interview process isn't tough - just say you're willing to work until 8 and you'll get it. It started with a phone call and then 2 rounds of interviews. Dress business professional. Really just do yourself a favor and skip the interview.
