    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.

    Temporary Employee Interview

    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.

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview Details

    met with two recruiters for a legal position in sf. Both interviewers were very helpful in giving tips about my experience, my resume, and what skills I should highlight in the event of a formal interview. Furthermore they both were very in tune with what was available for me and set up a formal interview within a few days. My overall experience was very good and hope to work with them again in the future.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Robert Half in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    One of the worst staffing companies ever! I arrived 15 min early, in suit attire, with immaculate copies of my resume and a cheerful attitude but don't waste your time. Basic computer tests, a basic interview, and basic people who aren't very good at interviewing. Don't go unless you would like false hope for a job, I've interviewed three times with this company and they NEVER call back about how the interview went, only for underpaying opportunities.

    Reasons for Declining

    This is am underhanded company with no tact or real ability to place people.

    Interview Details

    I would say I'm very hirable
    As I have already been on several interviews in the last two weeks with an offer around the corner but that is no thanks to this staffing agency. I completed all their requirements and was never called for any jobs leads or interviews through their agency. It's like they only needed me for my information to add as one of their clients but had no intention on helping me find a job. Poor

    I applied online – interviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview, and then supposed to have a skills test, but never followed up. The person interviewing obviously wasn't paying attention and repeated the same questions over several times. They would then say, oh I asked that already didn't I.

    Interview Questions
    • Wanted all my personal information, referrals, and so on up front! I said no, and didn't hear from them again. I felt like they were just trying to fill a database, not actually interested in me.   Answer Question
