    Recruiting Manager Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    The interview process was extremely fast. I was called by a recruiter (on a Friday) after applying online. I did a short informal interview with the recruiter, set up the 1st face to face for the next week (Tuesday). The first face to face was great. We discussed (in detail) each position I had, then the interviewer went over the 3 positions they were hiring for (in detail). She immediately set me up with another interview for that Thursday with her boss. That interview was similar to the first. . .going over each job, why I am looking to leave my current position, etc. However, this interview went into more details about the pay structure, bonuses, etc. He also showed me around the building before we finished and offered to set up my 3rd (skype) interview with his boss as early as the next day (Friday). I agreed, did a skype interview with the Regional Dir. which was the toughest interview. Very fast paced, lots of intense questions regarding my past work experience and my expectations with the new job. The recruiter was great because without realizing it, she had actually prepared me for this last interview. After the last interview, he told me to get back in touch with the person I first interviewed with by Monday. Tuesday, I had an offer. So it was a very fast process, they didn't make you wait a long period of time in between interviews or offering me the position. Great interview process!

    Interview Questions
    • "What is C sharp" was the toughest most unexpected question because I did not have any experience in the "technology world"

      "How do you feel that you have zero knowledge of IT" was another tough question, but I was prepared for it.
        Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no need to negotiate since they started my base salary where I W2'd the year before. Throughout the process, they were very open about money and I knew it was a good fit (financially) from the first interview with the recruiter.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview Details

    I visited the website to get an idea of what they offer and decided to submit my resume via the online service for the specific roles I was interested in. I never received confirmation or a response. I also sent emails to the office and never heard back.

    Reasons for Declining

    I felt that $9/h for a finance position was quite low.

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

    Interview Details

    Was pretty straight forward. I interviewed initially with the Regional Manager and then interviewed with separate Senior Staffing Managers.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time when you dealt with a difficult co-worker or customer?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They start the base salary really low but tell you that you can make up for it with their bonus structure. It takes long hours to build up the bonus requirements and you really won't make too much until after a year of grinding.
