    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview Details

    During the phone interview, the manager spoke about the position and asked behavioral questions. The next step was a face-to-face interview where you go over your resume and shadow an employee. They are basic interview questions. If they are interested in hiring you, the manager will give you a call.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview Details

    I ended up being interviewed by several people at one time (almost like a board meeting). It wasn't the most comfortable scenario but I ended up being hired on the spot. When people are arguing with each other about the details of the position while their interviewing you; it should be a red flag for you to run fast.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Robert Half in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Responded to posting on job board and received a callback and set up an interview. Went on website and glassdoor to prepare for interview. I also prepared questions I wanted to know to see if this was a company I wanted to work for. Interviewed with potential boss, which I really enjoyed considering I did not know what type of person to expect and was liked. Met with team members, who were all really nice and actually shadowed one to see what potential day would be like. Unlike a lot of interviews where they ask questions to confuse you and set you up to fail. Very easy going, enjoyable conversation.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Robert Half in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    First round was a traditional 20 minute interview one-on-one. Next round was for about an hour, maybe a little longer, and consisted of 2 different one-on-one interviews that went into more in-depth questions and "what if" scenarios." I then was taken into the bullpen where the recruiter work and one of the people who interviewed me had me run fake recruitment calls with her. She gave me the scenarios about 5 minutes ahead of time and then called me from across the room, pretending to be different clients and out me on the spot to answer all kinds of questions. It was very stressful and fast-paced! I came in one more day to observe 2 different recruiter as they worked. I assumed this many interviews was a pretty good sign, yet after the last one I never heard back. I sent a thank you email, then a follow up email, and finally called after not hearing back for weeks, and no one ever responded, even to let me know I did not recieve the position.

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Robert Half in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    They have a lengthy interview process. You meet with the Branch Manager, Regional VP, VP, and shadow. This is all well and good to make sure you fully understand the position and what will be expected of you. The Regional VP and VP are more of character interviews.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Robert Half in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    although it was a "cold" environment, the people were very friendly but direct and to the point and all business. Seemed like any typical NYC interview. intially all correspondences were done via email, but after the initial contact via email, we set up a face to face. there were multiple face to face interviews in one visit with more than one employee. interview process took approximately 2 hours

    The process took a weekinterviewed at Robert Half in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    There was a 1 on 1 interview that lasted about and hour and then I was taken on a tour and shown where exactly I would be working, how their system worked and was introduced to the team. All in all it took about 3 hours. They made it seem like I had the job and then never called, returned my follow-ups or anything.

    Interview Details

    Everything happend pretty quickly. Got a call the day after applying online, back to back interviews and offer was made within a week. Get ready because the interview is fast paced and you have to think on your feet. Its definitely not for the indecisive type. They want determined, high energy and sales oriented people.
