    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

    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.

    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

    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

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed 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
    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....
