    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview Details

    Registering for an online position. If your resume reads like you know all kinds of softwares and you have experience in everything related to accounting, they will ask you if you are interested in being an SPS. It sounds great, however if you are looking for something that is consistent and mundane, than this is not the job for you.

    Temp to Hire Business, Administrative Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Houston, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview Details

    Once company received resume, they called immediately to schedule interview-by which I became excited. Upon my on-time arrival, I was asked to wait a moment for the recruiter to arrive to work. She arrived 30-40 minutes later and began to conduct the interview. Questions were not related to the position and the entire time was spent with her talking me out of working for their company and their clients. I presented her with Eagle score reviews on the assessment skills test and she still seem to scramble for a reason not to hire. I met and exceeded all expectations of professionalism as well as provided a track record of success. Being dressed appropriately, speaking well, and having great knowledge in this area-I was oblivious as to why she was determined to keep me away.

    Interview Questions
    • The only question that was asked in the interview was if I was ever convicted of a felony, which I have not. She spent the first 5 minuted interrogating me about a conviction that perhaps I "forgot " about. Left me really confused. Was very unexpected and I would have preferred a more challenging question with regard to the position I was applying for. Afterwhich I answered no, over and over---she began to tell me how great the scores were but that she may not have a position (even thought they called me for the interview, bragged about several positions and how great I would be)   Answer Question

    Technical Recruiter Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview Details

    Lengthy process that took place over 3 1/2 weeks. One telephone interview followed by 3 in-person interviews and a final skype interview with senior management. (interestingly, we were later taught NEVER to allow our clients to interview this way) I was referred by a friend and was treated very nicely. There seemed to be confusion as to which position I was interviewing for. (This continued for the 3 in-person interview sessions)

    Interview Questions
    • Why do you think you can be successful as a recruiter when you have never recruited in previous positions? How does your sales background translate?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    The initial offer and pay was far lower that discussed on the initial phone call. The OTE for year 1 were well below what I was 'sold' initially. They did increase the offer after I was going to decline.

    Staffing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Robert Half in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Getting an interview is fairly easy. I walked in the door as a candidate and was able to interview well concerning my financial background. If you are a good communicator and know how to confidently interview with people, it isn't hard to make the jump from "staffing candidate" to "prospective internal." I would hazard a guess that if there is an opening, once you have showed off your potential, you could just ask to be considered for an internal opening.

    Base pay for most individuals within the company is somewhere in the ballpark of $40,000. Negotiate for more than that, because it will follow you for a while.
