    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Robert Half in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was called in for an interview just to get to know information about what they have to offer. The person I met with kept critisizing my resume and crossing off positions that i have held in the past while also telling me that I am asking for was outrageous and I should take a cut. no offense to him! i did my homework better than him and I am confident with what I was asking for. Of course, I ended up leaving very disapointed and he never contacted me again. It showed his level of professionalism at the end.

    Interview Questions
    • He mostly kept telling me to lower my expectation rather than getting to learn more about my credentials and prior experience.   Answer Question

    Staffing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Robert Half in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was initially introduced to the company by a friend and current employee; she provided my resume to a Division Director with an opening and I was contacted shortly thereafter. The Division Director's conversation was rather short, not exceeding 5 minutes. I knew to emphasize my sales experience and demonstrated it to the best of my ability--in all truth my sales experience was rather limited, zero quotas or goals in prior roles and zero recruitment experience. My initial interview was with the Division Director, then Branch Manager, then other Staffing Manager in the division. The individuals I interacted with didn't really ask any challenging questions. I walked them through my resume briefly, emphasizing the different industries I'd worked in, adaptability and desire to exceed the initial requisites of each position. After completing these 3 discussions, none of which exceeded 15 minutes, I was sent to a different office uptown. In this office, I met with a resident Division Director, Branch Manager, and Regional Manager. In these discussions, I continually reiterated my capacity for promotion and advancement within each of the roles I had held thus far. I was dismissed--and made sure to issue 'thank you' emails to each individual I had met. I was approached then by the initial Division Director to attend a different interview, where I shadowed the staff at a branch. I shadowed Staffing Managers within both the recruiting and coordinating aspect of the role and the sales and business development aspect of the position. In this phase, I engaged each individual regarding the tactical strategy behind certain phone calls and conversations and inquired about navigating the software. I was then invited to a final round of screenings in which I sat down with the Regional Manager for some time to evaluate the commission structure and desired salary. I was then introduced to the Regional Director, again more conversational in nature introducing the ideology that every individual is either a client or candidate, hence an opportunity to build the business. Afterward, I had a final round of negotiation in which I achieved just 2k less than what I had initially proposed. I shook on the offer and was prompted with some paperwork including an application via email in the following week and began work the week after that.

    Interview Questions
    • I wasn't really posited with anything challenging; during the screenings, candidates should convey confidence, effortless conversational abilities, and a desire to succeed within a structured metric.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Be judicious about what you ask for; keep in mind that your commission potential is riding on the ability to earn back your base.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Robert Half in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed hoping to pick up some temp work. I filled out their application online and was asked to fill out more when I arrived for the interview. I met with two young women. They seemed fairly inexperienced at interviewing candidates, asked canned questions without looking at my resume. I didn't expect much b/c it was just an interview for temporary work, but they said they would refer me to another office which handled the territory I wanted to work in (NYC).
