    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Randstad US.

    Interview

    Endless interviews with no offer. It got to the point where I felt like I was being used to train employees on how to interview potential hires. I even did two job shadows!

    Contractor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Randstad US (Columbus, OH).

    Interview

    I met my interviewer at a job fair that they held. They did a quick pre-screening interview where they looked over my resume and asked some quick questions. I was then invited to schedule a formal interview a few days later. The formal interview was a one on one with a case manager. There were no curveballs; everything was fairly straightforward. After we finished she told me when I could expect to hear back. Apparently they need time to check references and so forth and communicate the companies with current openings. Once they got me matched up I was invited in for another interview with my now manager. Again - no curveballs, just a standard interview. They made an offer later that week which I accepted, and I had to sign approval for a background check and take a drug screen asap. I started work soon after.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Randstad US (Minneapolis, MN) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and received a call back 30 minutes later. Interviewed four days later. The interview was very laid back. They asked the usual interview questions. Nothing out of the ordinary. Met with 2 different people. Incredibly friendly and personable people. My overall interview experience at Randstad was nothing less than positive.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Randstad US.

    Interview

    Interview process was average. It was not any harder than any other position. If you have been in the field and know what you are doing, the questions are routine. Just make sure that you get all your questions answered either about the position or the contract itself. Recruiter was very forward with questions and wanted a Yes or No. Did not like indecision.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Randstad US (Franklin, TN) in June 2015.

    Interview

    When I went in I was quickly directed to the area for waiting and filling out paperwork. Then I spent some time chatting with one of the talent representatives. She also introduced me to the other ladies & one gentleman in the office. While meeting with one of the ladies she said she just had something come in she thought I'd be a good fit for and told me the job duties, location, hours, and pay and asked if I'd be interested. I said yes and she said she'd send my information over and see if they want to set up an interview. Before I left I had an interview the next morning.
