    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Accountemps (Columbia, MD) in November 2016.

    Interview

    They were mostly focused on my employment gap instead of my overall experience. I was not impressed considering my resume clearly showed my employment gap a diverse I even discussed it with them prior to my interview and they led me to believe that this was something that they could work with. I felt like they misled me.

    Accounts Receivable Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cedar Rapids, IA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Accountemps (Cedar Rapids, IA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    First was a phone call to set up a Skype interview (because their office was too crowded with people interviewing, is what I was told). The recruiter I talked to was very nice. The next was skill assessment, based on what programs and skills I said I knew, they picked a bunch of tests for me to take like Excel, Word, Analytical, 12 key, etc.. Each test is timed, with about 30-35 questions to answer in 50 minutes but you can take longer. But the software will monitor how long you take overall and on each question. After that they will ask you to sign a document that will give them permission to represent you and another in which basically you are signing a waiver to go against them in the court of law.

    Interview Questions

    • What my job interests were?   Answer Question
    • The skype interview was just an in depth into what my previous experience was. Where I worked, reason for leaving and roles involved.   Answer Question

    Recruiter At Accountemps Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norfolk, VA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Accountemps (Norfolk, VA).

    Interview

    I am unemployed and contacted them for another reason. They had a position and thought I would be a good candidate for their position - I was interested!! I had 2 interviews and then I came in and observed the office working for 2 1/2 hours (they called it "shadowing") -- I was told I would hear something either way the following week -- I heard nothing! I called and emailed, no response! I got a generic email that they received my resume as if I was looking for their employment service and keep my resume on file. After all the time and interviewing I did, the least they could do is return my call - or help me find another position, but nothing! I found it very unprofessional.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Accountemps.

    Interview

    It was a Skype interview and lasted about 25 minutes. The questions are about your work experience and quite basic like "tell me about yourself", "how is your excel skill".They help you find temporary positions but the pay is not so good. Anyway it can be a good start for someone who does not have so many experience.

    KYC Analyst - Entry Level Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Accountemps (Columbus, OH).

    Interview

    Perhaps the most incompetent company I have ever dealt with. It is very obvious that the "recruiters" have no qualms about bringing job seekers in for interviews simply to hit their quotas. If you are not a fresh graduate looking for a position or a masochist, I would avoid Accountemps. If you are an experienced professional looking to explore new roles, be forewarned that you will likely be cast aside in favor of a less "seasoned" applicant. If you are asked to come in for an interview, my advice would be to avoid wasting money on gas, parking and dry cleaning and request a phone call or video conference.

    • Standard behavioral questions. Very obvious that resumes are not reviewed prior to applicant interviews.   Answer Question
