    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kelly Services in December 2018.

    Interview

    Online live Webcam interview with hiring agent. She asked basic scripted questions about experience, home office requirements, position description, equipment needed and provided, pay rates, etc. Dress is business casual as stated in their interview link email. They want to see the room you plan to work from on camera. A lot of online paperwork, but can be completed within 30 minutes or so. Not clear on whether I was offered the position for sure, or if I will be attending another interview of some sort.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Kelly Services (Troy, MI) in June 2011.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume based on a job posting from my law school's website. Within a few days, I was contacted to come in for an interview at the Kelly Law Registry office in Troy. My interviewer was one of the project coordinators for the upcoming project, so she knew what she was looking for. She looked over my resume and asked some basic questions about it. She wanted to know what document review programs I had used before and she wanted to know about my science/engineering background since this was a patent related job. She essentially hired me on the spot.

    Interview

    very brief, focused mostly on passing conflicts. Contract attorney interviews are not typical interviews. They just want to ensure that you are capable of completing a project and working a certain number of hours. They are not looking for long term employees.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Kelly Services in January 2013.

    Interview

    Very cludgy; no one knew how to get the process going smoothly. I felt like I was drving the whole thing, including the job offer (when I already knew from an inside source I had been offered the position, it took them nearly a week to offer it to me directly).

    Interview Questions

    • The interview wasn't difficult; the scheduling of subsequent events was very inefficient.   1 Answer
