    • 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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was great! They replied promptly to my application and were able to get me into an interview in their office promptly.

    The process began with a phone interview after which they sent me a series of proficiency tests to assess my skill level with various computer programs (e.g. MS Office). During the phone interview I was scheduled for an in-person interview to discuss what types of positions I was looking for through RH.

    Office Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakland, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakland, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Robert Half in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applicants can browse positions and submit their resumes online at OfficeTeam.com. If your qualifications fit the current need, you will be contacted by an Account Manager:

    The preliminary interview consists of a 1:1 sit down with your Account Manager, and essentially serves as a mock interview. During this meeting you will discuss your current administrative skill set, preferred work space, function and ideal placement. This is also a time for the Account Manager to evaluate your job seeker and/or interview etiquette (how you present yourself as an applicant, resume format...etc). Though relatively brief at 20-30 minutes tops, you will likely receive one or more homework assignments to maximize your "hireability" -- humbly accept these evaluations and move to correct any potential dings against you. Brushing up on Excel, removing an eye-brow ring or making use of the company's many training modules can easily expand your placement options.

    Note: You may or may not be asked to submit to the typical battery of typing and software assessments, but BE PREPARED to do so.

    Otherwise, you have nothing to fear in this case. If you can prove your willingness to grow as an administrative professional, these folks are generally willing to help you. Keep in mind that temping can be a terrific "gateway" opportunity into workplaces others wait years to break into. So if you're fresh out of college: Start "low" and aim high. Build the skills necessary to a company's operations, get in some face-time and you might find yourself in the running for that next mid-level management position.

    Happy Hunting!

    Staffing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed 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.

    Legal Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Robert Half in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Staffing agents (Miami area) are generally rude and unprofessional returning calls and emails. Interviews are mostly conducted on the phone and tell you they will call back within an hour, and they do not. Then, when you call them, they are never available. Stay focussed on your self and don't let the set downs with people that truly are incapable of helping detract your job search. If you are unemployed, looking for a job IS your full time job. Have patience with the market and with yourself. Never lose faith of your goals and don't be pressured into taking a low paying job.

    Interview Questions
    • Are you married or have children? And other questions along these lines, which are illegal.   Answer Question
