    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Adecco (Wauwatosa, WI) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I was given a telephone interview that I was wonderful at and was brought in for an in person interview. The woman who interviewed me said I was incredible and they would be happy to have me. I was told I would be brought in for a day of shadowing at the actual adecco location they were hiring for (Mayfair Road) and as soon as I stepped foot at the desk and introduced myself the girls face dropped. I have a very "white" sounding name and it was clear she did not expect someone black to show up. They ignored me most of the morning as I tried again and again to engage in conversation and ask about the position, before telling me at about noon (I was supposed to stay all day), that there was nothing left for me to do and I could go home early. A couple of weeks later (after multiple check in calls made by me) I was told that they went with someone who was a "better fit". I inquired about what I was missing, because I knew it was the right skin color, and was told that they hired someone who "got along" and offered to help me find a job at another company lol! No thank you, you will not get commission off of me when I was not "good enough" to work for you.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Adecco (Saskatoon, SK (Canada)) in July 2010.

    Interview

    The first time I went to there office it was just for temp work. I called in to ask about how to sign up, the person asked me a few pre-screen questions then set up a time for interview a couple days later. It wasn't much of an interview more just them seeing what you are looking for and feeling you out a bit. It went well, I started my first temp job the first day. Also some assesment testing was required. I had applied for admin work so I had to complete assesments for word, excel, data entry etc.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no hard questions. Just what are you looking for. Where does your experience lie, what are your wage expectations..that kind of thing. Not a real interview   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Adecco in April 2010.

    Interview

    The recruiter was awful. She was completely lost, and I had to follow up with her multiple times. I would call her and she would be like, "oh, I was going to call you, umm..what was that about again?" She gave me these tests that were terrible and hard, and had nothing to do with what I am doing right now! I never finished them either. I never even heard from her after I got on-site. Neither did my boss.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was a negotiation process? I don't think I was able to negotiate.
