They offered $40k, and wouldn't budge on base. It takes some time to build a pipeline, be prepared to live off just that for some time, regardless of what they feed you.

    I interviewed online. 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.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Robert Half in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    Many interviews over a lot of days. Met with a different person each time and each one talked about how much they like the company, but there were a lot of new people on the team and nobody wanted to talk about why the office had been around so long and why there were so many new people.

    After they make you an offer, ask for about ten percent more base for a reason that makes sense and you may be able to get it.

    The process took 2 days - interviewed at Robert Half in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Overall Robert Half does a fairly thorough interview process. Usually it starts with a phone scree, then they would bring you in to meet with the division director, and then the branch manager and usually the district manager. The final part is a half day shadow where you sit in and see others in the role do their day to day activities.
