    I applied online – interviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview Details

    Great interview process. Very helpful and supportive of career growth. A great place to start out to add software/experience to your resume! They have a very large clientele and you never know if one of the roles you're temping for becomes permanent.

    Staffing Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a weekinterviewed at Robert Half in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted about the open position. We set up an interview for a few days later. I went in for the interview. Basic questions like about your background, why you are looking to change jobs, etc. The recruiter was very friendly, but overall it was a negative experience. They told me starting salary is around $30,000.. not sure where the other salary averages on here came from. I have a bachelors degree and previous experience and it was a firm $30,000, with $35,000 being the very highest starting salary. They dangle paid time off, good benefits, and "ability to make commission" in front of you, to make up for the 10-12 hour days and poor starting salary. STAY AWAY unless you want to work 7:30-6 everyday and make about $10-12/ hour. Also, it is very sales and results based. If you do not deliver the results and sell to clients, you are gone. The person who interviewed me even said it takes about 6 months to see any commission and that they have a very high turn over rate for this position.

    Disgrace Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview Details

    I was corresponding with a nice woman (whose name I will refrain from using) but ended up having to meet with another woman due to her being busy. The woman I met with was extremely rude, uninterested and condescending. I will never go back unless I am desperate. They have only temp jobs with basically no guarantee of something permanent.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Robert Half in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    There is no process. I would recommend job seekers not to waste time with RH. Their consultants invite candidates for interviews to fill their schedules.

    Most of the jobs on job board are fake.

    Interview Questions
    • All crap.......... Consultants dont know anything about Accounting & Finance. They just waste candidates time.   View Answer

    Interview Details

    I applied for a job they listed online and was called the next day by a recruiter. I then met with several recruiters in the office who work in different areas and would be working on connecting me with a company. We talked about the best way to move forward and what kinds of jobs I was looking for. Everyone was extremely friendly, helpful and willing to meet with me in order to find the right placement.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too unexpected, it was a conversational interview about what I was looking for. Just make sure you have clear goals about what job you want, pay rate and distance willing to travel.   Answer Question
