Interview Details – RHT is only out to take care of themselves. The only thing they care about is placing people. They are not out to help you find a position. If they have something in mind, that is the only thing the concentrate on. I was better suited for a different position than they were trying to put me in and would not return my calls when I would ask them about the second position.

Interview Details – I was phone screened by a recruiter for a position as a network administrator and invited for a face to face interview. Once the interview went very well and was approximately 45 minutes long. The recruiter was friendly and thorough; she asked questions about my previous work history, education, certifications, and series of technical questions and at the end, asked if I'd had an interest in recruiting. After replying yes, she brought in her division director to meet me and I was invited back for an interview with the branch manager a week later. He asked questions mostly regarding my personality and management style. he talked to me about the salary and bonus structure and what my expectations were for success. I was given an offer letter and started the next week.

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate a bit. The company is pretty structured as far as what they pay people at each level. I would advise a person to be open to negotiating for more paid time off or stock options since the commission presents a strong opportunity to dictate your own earnings.

Interview Details – I was called for a telecommunications analyst position. I saw the job requirements, and told the recruiter that I didn't think I had the qualifications for the position.

I told him that on the phone the day before. The recruiter was just trying to get me to sign up to Robert International to build up their clientele.
No Offer – Interviewed in Denver, CO Feb 2012 – Reviewed Jun 7, 2012
Interview Details –
I applied online and was contacted by a Recruiter at RHI from their Denver Office,. Interviewed with a full panel (Skype, Face:Face, and Phone) within days - which went well with the client.
Problem - The Recruiter made the mistake of telling me the company gave me a "verbal offer" before they had their ducks in a row. Days, then weeks followed - no update. Months later I find the company's headquarters stopped all hiring - I now hear nothing from that recruiter, she ignored my calls & email inquiries. This has happened before, many times, with other recruiters there; They drag you into their office for a "meeting", then nothing happens, and you don't hear from the recruiter once they submit your resume.
When I see a job posted by RHI now, I pass it up -- Gas prices are too expensive to drive to their office, and I already know what the outcome will be.
