    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pleasanton, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kelly Educational Staffing (Pleasanton, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I want to start off my saying that I'm sure your agency is a good company and that everyone that works there has the best intentions.

    I applied for a job online and received a phone call the next day. I answered basic questions. The company was not advertised and when I asked how big the company was, I was told no information at all could be disclosed about the company. I did not ask the name of the company. She scheduled an appointment for me to come in and meet a recruiter. I was told I needed to complete some testing before I came in for the meeting.

    I received the link to the testing which was extremely long. I did it in parts but it took me a very long time. The test contained exercises in Word, Excel, PPT, Outlook and a typing test. It took me well over 2 hours to complete and I rushed through it, just to get it done in time.

    I had to reschedule the interview because of an illness and notified them right away, which was fine.

    I arranged to take 1/2 the day off work for the meeting. It took me 1 hour with traffic to drive to the office (It is around 100 degrees today). I went in and was asked to fill out a form, which I did. The recruiter came in and started asking me general questions about what kind of job I was looking and what my current salary was. A bit confused, because it sounded like she was not talking about a specific job at a specific company, I asked if she could disclose the name of the company which she did. I told her I already applied to that company directly and she said that unfortunately she could not resubmit me. She apologized and said I should have been informed of the company name at the initial phone call and the meeting ended. I was there for no more than 15 minutes.

    It took me 1.5 hours to drive to work after leaving the Kelly office.

    I spent over 2 hours taking the test from which I received no results and took half the day off of work to come to the Kelly office. I had to get someone to cover for me at work.

    I am sending this with the hope that you are more considerate of candidates in the future - maybe re-train them on what information they can and can't disclose. People have jobs, families and other commitments to juggle. I am sure this was an honest mistake but it cost me quite a lot.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Kelly Educational Staffing (Jacksonville, FL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    There was no actual interview. Each applicant was required to take two tests; one math test and one essay to determine which job you would be offered. The math problems were very basic word problems concerning percentages in retail, ie. 20% off of 'X' price =? and which is the biggest discount, 20% off original price or $15 off? For the essay we were instructed to write a two page essay on two recent accomplishments in your life.

    Substitute Teacher Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kelly Educational Staffing (Jacksonville, FL) in December 2016.

    Interview

    First step is to express interest with Kelly and gather all of the required information. You must past a background test and have a four year college degree. You then meet with a recruiter to review your background and interests. They then explain the challenges and conditions of employment. Once you pass the background check and interview you are offered the role quickly. My opinion is that hiring for this position is challenging and they move quickly to fill positions. Next you get several hours of training on the Kelly online tools and the requirements of the school district. You are also given some hints for performing the role. It really becomes a trial by fire after you start working and you adapt quickly or move on.

    super easy, it wasnt even really an interview it was more of an orientation. you take all your paperwork saying that you can work, you pay them for a background check (ridiculous you have to pay for this your self!) and then they sign you up to work.
