Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Robert Half in October 2012.
Interview Details – I submitted my resume to them online through Officeteam, and I was called the next day to sit down with a rep. We discussed my qualifications and what I was looking for. They worked very quickly to find a contracted position for me based on my knowledge and experience.
Interview Question – Situational questions (i.e. "Tell me about a time when..."). Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There really is no negotiation phase. You tell them the minimum wage you are able to accept for a position, and they let you know when one comes up, along with the terms. You can then accept or decline.
I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Robert Half in December 2012.
Interview Details – Had initial interview with the Branch Manager, the interview was very informal more like a meet and greet and discovery. After the conversation exchange, the branch manager explained the next step- a meeting with the Senior Vice President within a couple of weeks.
Interview Question – Nothing unexpected Answer Question
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Robert Half in April 2012.
Interview Details – I was actually temping with OfficeTeam when I was offered the position internally, I temped with RHI for a month then was put on perm internally.
Interview Question – Just be upfront and honest in the interview. You're not expected to work more than your 40 hours but the job is a lot to handle. Make sure your personal life doesn't get in the way of keeping your office under control. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – The starting salary was non negotiable, I was told that I would receive a review at 6 months and my manager pushed hard for me to receive one - however I had to relocate before the raise was put through.
Very Difficult Interview
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Robert Half.
Interview Details – Initially recruited during interview for regular permanent job. For internal positions, there can be up to 7 or 8 interviews, including multi-hour sit-in style. Lots of role-playing. Sometimes can be sent to interview at other branches/locations, which can double the number of interviews. Takes up to several weeks to complete.
Interview Question – Role-playing how to meet the needs of a client asking for support for their SEC reporting function. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Base salary is negligible, uncapped commission structure is the only sell. Really nothing to negotiate.
I applied through other source - interviewed at Robert Half in April 2008.
Interview Details – Multiple interviews can easily happen somewhere around 8 to 13 some cases. Typically 2 to 3 if they are desperate. If you are a leader in your industry 2 interviews. They like the polished type of individual, solid resume, well spoken, and dress professional in the interview. They might even do some role playing if you come from the industry. A lot has to do with fitting in with the branch personality and who you will work with. I would do your homework on who your meeting with and mirrror and match
Interview Question – Role Playing if they feel neccesary Answer Question
Negotiation Details – they offered 37,000 but I said I wanted to 40K, eventually we settled at 39k

Very Easy Interview
I applied through other source and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Robert Half in November 2012.
Interview Details – This was probably one of the weirdest interview experiences i've ever had. The total interview/hiring process seems a bit rushed. I feel as if they are desperate for employees and will take whoever they can to fill open positions.
I was called into an interview within 3 days of initial contact with RHT. I was a bit put off when I arrived and they wanted me to fill out tax and payroll paperwork and sign an employment contract BEFORE I met the interviewer. I declined to fill out the paperwork, I couldn't believe how fast the process was going! They handed me another person's application that contained their personal information. Once I brought that to their attention, they discovered that they had completely lost mine. It took them 25 mins before they had me fill out a form from scratch.
The interviewer was really nice but didn't give me a lot of straight answers. Question:" What companies do you work with?" Answer: " Big ones and small ones". At the end of the interview I told her that I was looking for a more permanent position and had other interviews and positions to consider. The next day I received a link granting me access to the RTH online training program.
I think that the job would be ideal for someone that is desperate for a IT position or is just starting out in the industry. I know that with the economy the way it is, I should be thankful that a company is throwing themselves at me, but I would prefer to work for a company that is a bit more selective of their candidates and can offer a permanent position.
Interview Question – None. Most of the interview was reviewing my resume. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – The positions offered are not guaranteed and are 1-6 month terms with the "possibility " of becoming permanent.
I applied online and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Robert Half in October 2012.
Interview Details – I initially received a call from a recruiter and did a quick phone interview to review my qualifications. The recruiter was very friendly and kept in good contact with me throughout the process. She passed my information to the next person up and scheduled an interview. The interviewer was very friendly, though somewhat impersonal. She gave a very realistic job preview and clearly stated all expectations.
I opted not to continue with the interview process, since the interviewer described a somewhat different position than was originally advertised. However, everyone in the office was very friendly and professional.
Interview Question – What new ideas or special talents will you bring to the company? View Answer
Reason for Declining – The job I had originally applied for seemed to differ greatly from the job discussed in the interview.
Pros: “They offer lots of DIY training that could easily take up your whole 8-hour day and you'll learn a lot about the organizations in your community.” “They offer lots of DIY training that could easily take up your whole 8-hour day and you'll learn a lot about the organizations in your community.” – Full Review
