I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Robert Half in February 2012.
Interview Details – I interviewed with a manager and a director the first day I was there. They both seemed very nice and were very easy to interview with. The manager told me that I had all the qualifications that he was looking for, and then literally said "what do I have to do to get you to come work here?" The following day he called me at 8:15 in the morning to see if I was still interested in the position, and scheduled me for a second interview the next day. I met with three people that next day (Thursday), and I was told to call back and speak with the manager the next morning before 10:00. I called the next morning, and the manager was out at a client site. I called back two or three times that day, and he was never there. I also sent an email and never received a response. Finally, that next Monday, he got back to me and told me that he should have more information the next Thursday. The next Thursday came and went with no contact and no returned calls. Again, I emailed him, and Friday afternoon he replied that he had been busy and that he should know more in another week. So here I am on the day that I was supposed to hear from him again, and I have yet to hear anything. Again, no response to emails or voicemails. Their lack of response or respect for other people's time has cost them, because I'm moving on to other opportunities.

The process took a day - interviewed at Robert Half in May 2010.
Interview Details – I was contacted by a sales manager from Robert Half, who said he wanted to meet with me in person the next day to discuss an opening on his sales team. Upon arrival at the office, the receptionist was overwhelmed by many people in the lobby, and asked me to take a seat for a few minutes. I was finally called up to the front, and was given a lot of detailed paperwork for fill out in a conference room. The paperwork took about 30 minutes to complete, and I think it would have been a better use of time to have e-mailed it to me ahead of time so that I could have it already filled out.
After paperwork was complete, I was told to wait in the conference room to wait for the sales manager to come in. Instead, his boss came in and interviewed me, since the manager I was supposed to meet with was "running in a million different directions", and would be in shortly. After I met with the sales manager's boss, the initial sales manager I was supposed to meet with from the beginning came in and talked with me, and by this time, two hours had passed since I entered the office. I thought it was a bit unprofessional that the process was not a bit more streamlined.
The interview itself was not difficult at all. I was mainly given the open invitation to ask any questions I had about the position, and hardly anything was asked about me regarding details of my background or qualifications to do the job. I knew that the job was not for me when I was told that a typical day involved 70% of work hours being devoted to phone calls, and only 30% spent on in-person appointments, all for an average first year income of around 50-60K. I was told I could schedule a day to shadow a sales rep if I was interested in moving forward, but I declined.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Robert Half in June 2009.
