    Account Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person - interviewed at Robert Half in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    You will go through a few interviews. Each interviewer is very friendly. They will show you around and truly explain the job. The questions are more or less a way for them to understand if you have what it takes. You will also decide quickly if this is the right job for you.

    Application Details

    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

    Paralegal Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Robert Half in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went for an interview. The process consists on filling forms, and then you get a personal interview that lasts around 20 minutes. This first interview is basically a way of getting to know you better. They offer temporary jobs, as well as full time jobs, but they get a commission of your salary if they find you a job. You have a benefits package which is available after you land your first job.

    Division Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview Details

    Met with at least 6 people - boiler room set-up, they 'sell the dream', corporate professional and high energy atmosphere. Fast interviews and they're looking for professionalism (suited, sharp personal appearance), aggressive/'salesy' and hungry people, with personality and confidence.

    Interview Questions
    • Sometimes they ask a random or completely unrelated/non-relevant question, JUST to see how quickly you respond - testing your ability to think on your feet / decisiveness.....the answer really isn't that important, but make sure you can at least explain it....for example...if you could have one super power, what would it be and why? (they start mentally counting as to how long it takes you to respond and explain why)...   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    know the market and your value, would recommend negotiating UP FRONT, because promises of increases later are extremely difficult to make happen....

    I applied online - interviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview Details

    Got a call from one of the recruiters who set up an initial interview. The interview was very generic. Just questions about my background, my academic projects. He explained the role and the benefits and i thought the interview went off well but i never herd back.

    Salaried Professional, Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview Details

    With Robert Half it is a hit or miss. I have never had a placement with them. I also find that they are astoundingly unprofessional, except for the case of one recruiter in Atlanta office who I rather not name.

    Interview Questions
    • One of the recruiters asked how long have I been in the US because I have an accent. That was so inappropriate. Again, I would not recommend RH; they treat job applicants like cattle that are led astray with false hopes.   Answer Question

    Mortgage Processor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview Details

    I was heavily pursued by a Robert Half recruiter for a mortgage processing job. I had a face to face interview and was told how impressive I was and the job was mine. I was told I would be hearing back from them in a just couple days with a hire date. A couple days later came and went, and for the next 2 weeks, my phone calls and emails went unanswered. The recruiter I dealt with was NEVER available. I finally got angry and asked if I could speak to anyone else there who could tell me what was going on. I was transferred to another recruiter who meekly told me the position was on hold. I never heard from anyone at Robert Half again. I regret believing I was dealing with a professional organization and I regret putting my job search on hold for these people.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing asked was difficult at all. Basic interview questions like "tell me about yourself" and "what are your goals".   Answer Question

    Sales Support Administrator Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Robert Half in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very straightforward process. I applied on a Saturday, Monday afternoon I was called and had a brief (10 minute) phone interview. Then my interviewer sent me several skills tests to complete online. I did well enough to get an on-site interview. The on-site portion was about an hour and a half of job shadowing followed by meeting 3 members of the team including a VP. Everyone I met with was very friendly and welcoming.

    Reasons for Declining

    The commute was just a bit too bar for me and the hours were earlier than my current position. I didn't want to have to leave my house before 7:30 to be on time to work
