Application Details

I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Robert Half in March 2014.

Interview Details

Interviewed with 3 different people. 3 hours. Seemed positive. First thing they told me they really liked my experience, but that they had 3 people further along in the process. Then 1 by one I was interviewed by 3 senior managers. Everyone was really nice. It went well, but they didn't hire me.

    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 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.

    Negotiation Details
    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.

    Staffing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Robert Half in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was recently laid off and wanted to work a temp position while I looked for something permanent. In my registration interview, I was recruited for a Staffing Manager position. The person interviewing me went to get the Branch Manager who spoke to me for a few minutes and asked me to come back for another interview to speak with the Regional Manager and the Regional VP. In the interview with the RM, I pretty much just listened to her speak about how wonderful she is and how successful she is. The regional VP asked me questions about my resume and what I did at each job. Tried to throw me some "tough" questions that every college career counselor coaches you on how to answer. Overall, their decision was made before I even interviewed. I've heard other's interviews were much the same.

    Interview Questions
    • There weren't any. It was more an information session about how amazing the interviewer thought she was.   Answer Question

    Staffing Manager Interview

    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.
