    Sales Support Administrator Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview Details

    Interview was short and all over the place. You will be brought in and then required to meet with everyone in your division you'll be working with (Such as Healthcare, Legal, etc.) to make sure they "like you". They will check your most recent 2 references. There are no drug screens or background checks initially. Anyone can get hired there with a good resume. They'll explain your job duties loosely. If you get hired, you'll have no idea what you're really supposed to be doing or what your job title even is. Hiring will actually tell you it's "sink or swim" and that they have no policies they follow or even do orientation, etc. because they "change so frequently". They will be more focused on whether or not you get along with your future co-workers than if you are even competent and well trained enough to do the job they hired you for. And your co-workers are not so good people at this branch. Most of them will even tell you that personally when you start working together.

    Interview Questions
    • Easy questions. "Why do you want to work for us?" "Tell us a little about you." That's it.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They just asked what salary I required and accepted the number.

    Sales Support Interview

    Interview Details

    I came in to interview as a temporary candidate and was offered an interview for the internal position which was opening up. The interview was scheduled the following day. It was conducted by the branch manager and the lead administrator. Very informal, behavior based interview. Felt comfortable and definitely got an idea of the culture, which was laid back and had a "family" feeling.

    Accounting Clerk Interview

    Interview Details

    The first interview is on phone. Sometimes they would ask you to meet in person, but not necessarily. Everything is pretty simple. It is one on one interview and the questions are very basic. They mostly ask about your experience and your requirements/wished for your position.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview Details

    Response was prompt. However, after a general interview session, they then wanted to put me in for a position completely different from what I had applied at a company I didn't want. Looking around the waiting room, it seemed they worked on small but frequent placement volume and wanted to get the most likely placement for the least amount of work.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    Neither a good company nor a good position.

    Temporary Employee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was not a process at all. They did not ask the "normal" interview questions, instead they wanted to see your personality and your willingness to work and try new things. It was very laid back and it felt like I was hired before I went into the interview. They want someone who will represent their company well and their clients will do their own interviewing to see if you are a good fight for their specific company.

    Interview Questions
    • There really was none, I was very surprised at how laid back the whole process was.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    You don't negotiate price right then and there, you either accept or reject temp. jobs and the salary that comes with them at the time that the job is available.
