    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter - interviewed at Randstad US in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    After having visited the Randstad US booth a Career Fair, I was invited to take skills exams; then, was interviewed for the Data Entry position. The Hiring Manager conducted a very casual, relaxed interview.

    Interview Questions
    • As the work was entry-level and required few skills, I cannot recall a difficult question asked. However, as employment was through an agency, I was presented with the employment requirements of the client company and these requirements were unexpected. The requirements seemed a little stringent or unusual based upon previous personal experience with employment agencies;however, this was a factor which led me to be impressed-- even more so than I already was-- by the company.   View Answer
