    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Humble, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Insperity (Humble, TX) in June 2020.

    Interview

    Declined without a recruiter contacting me. Met all of the requirements for the position. I’ve applied multiple times to Insperity but their recruiters always decline my candidacy even though I’m a strong applicant.

    I think you have to know someone internally to be hired; not an equal opportunity employer.

    BPA Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Thousand Oaks, CA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    After being recruited through LinkedIn I was curious enough about the company to take another call and a eventual 1 hour virtual interview. I hadn’t heard of Insperity, but I learned they were a staffing agency similar to paychex and adp.
    The call lasted 30 minutes, total, I was told that the regional and district manager would be on the call. In fact it was a “seasoned” salesperson who did all the talking and just the DM who sat quietly.
    Personally I wouldn’t have accepted the role if they had offered, they didn’t.
    As a matter of fact they didn’t follow up until the following week with a standard boilerplate reject. I could picture them copying and pasting new names on the same letter.
    Being that they are based out of Houston and don’t actually have a physical office where my location would be, just a Regus. If I was going go with a sales role I stick with a tri-net or one of the previously mentioned companies. I’ve had experience with the other three in previous roles but never insperity.

    Outside Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Insperity (Seattle, WA) in February 2020.

    Interview

    I had a Recruiter reach out to me on LinkedIn to see if I would be interested in a Sales Role. It wasn't even a job I applied for. I was responsive and did everything the recruiter asked including sending in my resume, applying online, and gave her dates/times I was available. We had a VERY early morning interview and she just never called, never emailed, never messaged, nothing. I wrote her the morning of our scheduled interview to check in and makes sure I hadn't made a mistake about date/time (which I know I didn't) and I just never heard anything. It would be one thing if I had applied and not heard back... but to be actively recruited for a role and have an interviewer completely stand you up with no explanation is unacceptable.

    Business Performance Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glendale, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Insperity (Glendale, CA) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Straightforward interview with branch manager and divisional out of the Glendale office. They decided to go another direction which was fine, as I ended up receiving a much better offer elsewhere. Would have been nice to receive follow up messages after sending thank you emails to management, which I thought was unprofessional.

    Human Resources Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    A recruiter emailed me asking when I would be available to discuss an opportunity. We agreed on a time and day, then they didn’t call. I emailed twice and received no response. I was at work and blocked out time and a conference room to speak to them. I did research on the company and prepared, why waste my time like that?

    Outside Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Insperity.

    Interview

    Overall, the process was confusing as I met with two separate hiring managers, including their boss, was told by one that they wanted to bring me onto their team and told by another that I was an ideal candidate that they didn't want to keep waiting, only to get a call from the recruiter a few days later that they weren't moving forward due to concerns about how much of a sales "hunter" I was. I didn't push for feedback or clarity since I was already concerned at this point about the lack of diversity in their senior leadership, especially for an HR company. (Since then, I've seen team and office pictures on LinkedIn where the group is all white colleagues.)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Insperity.

    Interview

    It was clear that the recruiter didn't look at my resume until she was interviewing me. She was not professional at all. She sounded like a robot, just listing the questions out and not trying to make it more of a conversation. She didn't realize how far I lived....its there job to look that up! Not for me to tell you. After the interview with her, it makes me not really want to apply in the future.

    Human Resources Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Worth, TX

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Insperity (Fort Worth, TX).

    Interview

    When I saw the job description and read about the company, I was so excited to apply! I was contacted within a few days of my application by email from a corporate recruiter with Insperity. The email said she would like to schedule a phone interview and to let me know when is best for her to call me. I immediately wrote back and set a time for her to call. The day and time passed with no call or email from the recruiter. I emailed her again and she set up a NEW time/day. This time she called and the phone interview went great. She was very nice and pleasant on the phone. I described my current position and she kept making comments that they were looking for someone with that exact experience. The call was about 20 min and she advised that she was going to contact the hiring manager right away and he was going to want to start interviews immediately. She asked my schedule for the next week and she would give me a call Monday morning to set up the interview. She also advised she was sending over info for a background check and and assessment. She also sent over benefits info for me to look at “to get a head start on knowing more about being an employee here”. I completed all required documents and sent a thank you email to her. Monday came and went with no call or email AGAIN. I was trying not to rush her but I did not want to miss this opportunity with Insperity. Nothing Tuesday so on Wednesday, after still no call/email. I sent an email just to follow up on when the interview would be scheduled since she said she it would be asap. Within a few minutes, I received an email with one sentence saying they went with another candidate. I was pretty surprised since the position was still posted online and the phone interview went so well. Insperity seems like such an amazing company and this does not deter me from applying again but the recruiter came off lazy, unprofessional and I kept having to chase her down. After reading other reviews, it sounds like this has happened a lot. I have been in HR for 12 years and as a recruiter for much of that time and her behavior is pretty strange and does not represent the company very well.
