    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied online – interviewed at Randstad US in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, received an email from the recruiter to set up a phone interview. Phone interview was very casual and conversational. At the end of the phone interview I was asked to take a Hogan personality assessment test. Upon successful completion of the Hogan I was given a Wonderlic test and after that it was on to a face to face with the regional manager. This took place at a coffee shop and was very informal with no unexpected questions or curveballs.
