    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Barely a screening process done by the recruiter before your actual phone interview with their client. The recruiter will tell you that it will be a behavioral interview, and tell you to highlight your successes at current and past positions.

    Negotiation

    Can negotiate, but the recruiter will likely give you just above your current pay if you share that information.

    Warehouse Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Nelson Staffing (Redwood City, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    No interview was giving. Just a short phone call and a set of skills to determine a good spot for you. I didn't even have to go into any office. Everything was handled over the phone and set up was a breeze. No conflicts. I can't really describe this as an interview process. If you ask me the interview is a thing of the past it just makes employees over think their abilities. Nerves trigger

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sonoma, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Nelson Staffing (Sonoma, CA).

    Interview

    The initial interview was a 30 minute phone screening/interview. The following week I was called in for a second in-person interview at the office that I would be working in. The receptionist was very nice and the manager interviewing me came out to meet me and bring me into her office where I found myself among the team with whom I would be working. The entire experience was very pleasant. While there were some structured questions we were able to branch out into conversations comfortably transitioning into the next topic and question naturally. We found ourselves laughing often which helped ease any nerves.

    Interview Questions

    • Each team member asked me questions about my previous experience and my comfort in the tasks that would be required of me in the position.   1 Answer

    Interview

    Call to make an appointment. Front desk is very helpful to answer questions and make an interview. Remember to bring two forms of ID. You will need 3 previous employer or personal contacts that can verify your employment or vouch for you. Meet with your job placement coordinator on scheduled meeting/interview. Discuss your work history (what you've done, how long, all the things you are great at), prospected/desired employment, maybe a computer (Microsoft word, Excel and typing) test before or after interview. Then wait for a call. Once called for a prospective job placement, they will notify you of possible drug testing needed.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Nelson Staffing (Petaluma, CA) in July 2009.

    Interview

    The interviewer was very friendly. We sat down in a small room within the office area and discussed my expectations for the job, and what Nelson Staffing was willing to offer as well. The interviewer was very cordial and put me at ease during the interview, so the interview was more of a discussion than an interrogation. The interviewer was professional, but not distant. I was only interviewed once.
