    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview Details

    I visited the website to get an idea of what they offer and decided to submit my resume via the online service for the specific roles I was interested in. I never received confirmation or a response. I also sent emails to the office and never heard back.

    Reasons for Declining

    I felt that $9/h for a finance position was quite low.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview Details

    Initially recruited during interview for regular permanent job. For internal positions, there can be up to 7 or 8 interviews, including multi-hour sit-in style. Lots of role-playing. Sometimes can be sent to interview at other branches/locations, which can double the number of interviews. Takes up to several weeks to complete.

    Interview Questions
    • Role-playing how to meet the needs of a client asking for support for their SEC reporting function.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Base salary is negligible, uncapped commission structure is the only sell. Really nothing to negotiate.

    Contract to Hire Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Burlington, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Burlington, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Robert Half in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    Got a call from a recruiter and he sent me an email for the interview process. When I arrived I spent about 20 minutes filling out paper work and then a tax credit survey. I then had a short interview with the recruiter. Didn't ask many technical questions and focused on more about the commute. I

    I made several follow up calls and he was either waiting to hear from the Account Exec or from the customer. Some calls weren't returned. About two and a half weeks later the job disappeared from the posting board. A follow up call was placed with the recruiter but I haven't heard from.

    Accounting Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Robert Half in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interviewer/recruiter was competent & fairly pleasant, reviewed my resume, skillset etc...then told me the hiring client was looking for candidates with less experience-the thinly disquised age discrimination line that is so typical these days.

    Technical Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Robert Half in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    The recruiters at Robert Half are generally on a 5-15 minute per contact plan so it is imperative to be sharp, well-dressed, on time and know your resume cold. Expect for them to ask some detailed questions specific to the job description qualifications as well as details about how you worked with others at previous positions. Finally, the reasons you give for leaving other companies is taken seriously.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked to outline details for how to land a new technical company so that they would switch over to using me as their new Technical Recruiter. Providing a detailed and logical methodology was key.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    When headed into a salary negotiation the least productive thing you can do is to say how much you want. The second worst thing is to say what you previously made. Take some time to work out specific answers that do not divulge either of these two answers until AFTER they have told you the price range for the position. I used these answers:

    When asked about my previous salary: * My previous work was not a good match for the new position requirements so my previous salary is not relevant. What is the salary range for the position?

    When asked about my salary expectations: * I am sure you will be fair. * You know better than me what the value of the position is in terms of salary. * It is more than just salary as the benefits, working environment, and corporate culture are also very important and I look forward to learning more in my next interview. * When pressed hard, do a salary research and tell them that 'my salary research for this position in this location is X to Y. Is that within the budgeted salary?
