    Business Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GradStaff (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    After applying online, they sent me a text to keep an eye out for an e-mail or phone call regarding a phone interview. I received both, and set up a 10 minute phone interview. It ended up being about 15 minutes, with basic question regarding your experience and what you're looking for.

    Client Support Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at GradStaff in June 2017.

    Interview

    I was recruited through Indeed.com and scheduled a phone interview for the following day. The recruiter did not call me at the scheduled time and asked me to reschedule for the next day. I accepted and awaited their call. They asked me general questions and towards the end, the recruiter said that I did not fit the position that was offered and that they would call me when any position would fit with my background. Overall, I am not impressed and would probably not be using GradStaff throughout my job search in the near future.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GradStaff (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    You start by filling out a form that asks questions about your career interests. Then the interviewer comes in and asks you about 30-45 minutes worth of questions relating to your skills and experience. The questions are pretty basic, nothing that should throw you off if you've been in interviews before or have prepared a little!

    • Tell me about your writing skills.   Answer Question
    • Describe a time when you dealt with a difficult customer, how did you diffuse the situation?   Answer Question

    Job Applicant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at GradStaff (Minneapolis, MN) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I was interviewed to determine whether or not I was a good fit for the company to work with to place in a job. I was applying to be a candidate in their roster to offer to clients -- not to actually work at Grad Staff.

    I submitted an application online, and I waited a bit before hearing back. I received a text telling me to anticipate a phone call. Later That day I received a phone call and voicemail. I called back, at which point I completed a phone interview. I was told they do Evaluation to Hire placements, with the expectation that after the end of the trial period their client would hire the candidate. I was told I'd receive a call if they had interest in me.

    I received a call a week later to setup an in person interview. The interview first had my initial recruiter questioning me. After the interview they provide feedback on your interview and resume so you can perform well if you're interviewing for a position with their client. Finally, a second person came into the room to ask about placement/career preferences.

    Afterwards, I was told I'd be contacted if a client need someone with skill set. However, I found a job first elsewhere before they had a chance to setup a potential interview.

    Project Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GradStaff.

    Interview

    It was pretty brief over the phone. The phone interview was not for the position itself but it was what they offer as a company. They did not ask me questions pertaining to the position but what I would like to do in a career. They are suppose to find the job that you would be best for after the general information they gathered from the phone interview. It was more of a recruiter than an actual job interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at GradStaff (Philadelphia, PA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I uploaded my resume to their website. They called me and explained that they do a quick process, so I should contact them when I am ready to go. Short phone interview, then in person. Interviewers were nice, helpful, and on point. They are a placement agency, and I found them to be very helpful

    Placement Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GradStaff (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    The first interview was a basic phone screening about my resume and school background. After the phone screening they wanted me to come in for a one on one interview that would last about 90 minutes. The interview process did take the full 90 minutes as they told me it would. They gave great feedback after the interview was complete! The behavioral interview process was a process you have to be absolutely prepared for, its hard to come up with stuff right off the top of your head. Overall, it was a great interview experience, even if you get placed or not. Great company and very welcoming.

    General Employee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at GradStaff (Dallas, TX) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume and within a day got a request for a phone interview with the company. This was a screening interview, not for a particular job, even though I submitted my resume for a specific position. The phone interview involved the typical get to know you questions including why you chose your major, salary requirements etc. This was all fine.

    The issue was: the recruiter indicated she would be in contact with me. She said "when" a position was available, not "if." She was never in contact and, given I had credentials matching if not exceeding almost every job GradStaff advertises, I believe she never intended to be in contact. Now, I don't at all take offense if I was not a good candidate for them. But why pretend rather than simply saying, "Sorry, I don't think you are a good fit for us," or even a simple follow up email saying something similar?

    GradStaff, your reps seem intent on replying to many of the negative reviews, so here is some simple advice: be more transparent with your process. If you are not interested in a candidate, do NOT say you are. It's that simple.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at GradStaff (Minneapolis, MN) in February 2016.

    Interview

    GradStaff is a staffing agency for recent college graduates. I applied since I recently graduated college and wasn't sure how to utilize my degree. The interview process did take the full 90 minutes they said it would. They will give you feedback on how you interview and give you tips. I would recommend them for someone who doesn't have a ton of experience job hunting or low interview skills. They did call me back in 2 weeks saying they had 2 positions that they would like me to interview for. I turned both down since I found my own employment. Overall, I had a positive experience with them. Do not rely on them as your only method of finding a job!!!
