Interview

phone interview and prior to assignment. However, working with Accountemps for temp positions, whilst also working with Robert Half for permanent positions, one will be talking to a LOT of different people, with seemingly no interaction between them within the office. I sense it is an extremely competitive atmosphere between recruiters. So get used to rehash every position you go for.

Interview Questions

  • The questions were general ones about experience, what part of field interests me, what positions would I like to pursue as temp.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Accountemps (Schaumburg, IL) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I met with four managers of the company for placement within various divisions of the company. I was asked to work as a full-time special projects accountant, but didn't want to commit to traveling 90 minutes over the winter. Otherwise, the projects sounded very interesting and exciting.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Accountemps (Walnut Creek, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Lots of job postings that are not available when you finally get to someone live. Seems like a gimmick to get people to give your their resumes. I would also get emails from them saying we have something that starts in two days...are you available? To which I would immediately respond, yes and then they would say that they would keep me posted and I would never hear from them. A complete waste of time.

    Interview

    Relatively simple through Skype. I was contacted about a month after submitting an online application for one of their "made up" positions that they use to accumulate a pool of readily available workers. There was a quick phobe screening and the next day a Skype video interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Accountemps (Saint Louis, MO) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Worse experience ever! First guy called me without introduce himself. He was rude while I tried to ask which company he's calling from, I just want to make sure he is not a scam call. I'm sure normal person wouldn't have a problem explaining who you are when you call someone you do not know. However, this guy just got weirder, got more frustrated, and started to whisper so he can say something mean. I got his name by tricked him to give me his email address, then I call the company to report about this guy. They said this never happened before (oh sure) and set me up with another person for the interview.
    The interview was set for exact date/time. Guess what? The interviewer cancel on me right at the interview time. Just cancel like that. She rescheduled the appointment for a few hours after. She was late and that is the last time I gave this company a chance.

    "No respect, No manner and very unprofessional."

    Interview Questions

    • More of just selling how big their company is. The interviewer just talked like a robot. Didn't really care much about my skills.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Accountemps (Oakland, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Very basic interview. The recruiter just asked questions about the work experience listed on my resume. Next I was just asked about how much I was looking to get paid. As an entry level accountant, I said $18-20/hour but was told that realistically it would be somewhere around $15/hour to begin with.

    Interview

    I was offered a Skype Interview. Since I live about 50 miles away from the Accountemps office, this was an appreciated off from them. I felt comfortable with this process because I was still able to see my interviewer but did not have to travel the distance to see them in person.

    Reasons for Declining

    It was only a 2 month assignment and I was not willing to give up my part time job for a temporary assignment.
