    Difficult Interview

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Labor Ready (Roseville, CA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    Behavioral Screening, Drug Screening, Background Screening, Reference Checks, etc. When interviewing for this position be ready with the operations numbers and goals that you have for the specific branch you are being interviewed for.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Labor Ready (San Francisco, CA) in November 2009.

    Fairly Simple - Met with Regional Manager once by phone and on 2 occasions in person.
    We reviewed: their needs and my qualifications, job descriptions, upline management's style, performance expectations and compensation package.
    The lower level positions here [Branch Manager and below] do not have a rigirous interview process, and the higher positions are overwhelmingly promote from within.

    Universal: Base salary, structured commission and benefits. No negotiating.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Labor Ready in April 2010.

    Interview

    After submitting my resume I had a phone interview with the District Manager (DM). Next was a call from HR, where I took an over the phone aptitude test. Then I had a face to face meeting with the DM, followed by phone interviews with an Area Sales Manager and then the Area Vice President. Finally I met the DM again to go out in the field and do presentations. I then had a full background check run and was finally offered the job.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Labor Ready in July 2008.

    Interview

    Phone interview, followed by face to face with hiring manager (area manager)...then interview with co-worker (branch manager from another branch). Drug test, credit check, background check, personality profile.

    The interview was laid back for me. They really wanted to see your personality and what you bring to the table.

    Interview Questions

    • What would you do if someone urinated on the branch floor?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Slightly...there is a base salary range for everyone coming into that role depending on location. I obtained the higher base and the other benefits were great so I didn't really have to negotiate anything that I wasn't happy with.
