Administrative Assistant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO

Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Kelly Services (Denver, CO) in August 2016.

Interview

Was a complete waste of time. I applied online and ended up playing phone tag with a recruiter in the Denver office. Every single time I called and asked for the recruiter, first the receptionist would ask for my name, and then she would tell me that the recruiter was "in an interview". It did not matter what time of day I called and I called several times one day, she was always "in an interview", once the receptionist knew it was me who was calling. The recruiter still called me back and left me a voicemail asking me to call her back, and so then I had to keep calling and being told that the recruiter is "in an interview". I got really tired of being lied to.

The receptionist laughed at the way she kept mispronouncing my name the first few times I called. It was very frustrating and I'm not sure why they would employ such childish and unprofessional people to represent this company. I did not bother to set up an interview due to this childish behavior. The recruiter emailed me again asking me to call her but I just stopped trying because she was always "in an interview". I really resent being lied to. I highly doubt she was in interviews all day long for days in a row.

I have worked with other Kelly Services branch offices, and have had a better experience with a different branch.
Whoever manages the Downtown Denver Kelly Services office doesn't seem to mind having immature and unprofessional children working there, representing their company.

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Kelly Services.

    Interview

    Terrible and a waste of time! I had a lady call me about a position I applied for (I actually thought I was applying directly to the company, not to a Kelly Services post) and got a call a few days later. Set up an interview and she went over two positions she’d think I’d be a good fit for. Great. She said she’d have the employers contact me the following Monday. Monday rolled around and no call. It’s been probably about a month and I never got a call from the employers, her, or anyone. I’m honestly furious that I wasted my time and how unprofessional this process was. I could’ve at least been emailed an update instead of outright ignored. Interview is easy, just requirements asked. Professionalism doesn’t exist at this location.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kelly Services (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The office was small. The staff was personable. I was talked "to" instead of being talked "at". It wasn't assumed that my skills were lacking just because I was temping instead of already being somewhere permanent.

    Negotiation

    There was no real negotiation phase. There was a position opening and I said yes.
