    Freelance Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Premier Staffing (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I came into the office early and had to wait about an hour as the recruiter was late. The recruiter didn't really let me answer any questions, but really liked my purse and shoes so she sent me to a second round in another room to set me up with a client. The client called with an offer the next day to a job I previously had said wasn't in my wheelhouse and I declined.

    Reasons for Declining

    The opportunity was specifically not one that the recruiter and I had agreed wouldn't be an ideal fit for me. Even though they wanted me, I did not want to.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Premier Staffing (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I sent in my resume to the HR recruiter after someone I knew posted about the job opening. After a few days, she reached out to me for a phone interview (more of a screening). Although I thought she asked some very thorough and important questions about my past and current job experiences, I was pretty bummed about not getting an offer. The day after we talked on the phone she emailed me and told me that they went with another candidate whose experience matched more of what they were looking for.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Premier Staffing (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Interview went well. Simple and Easy. Upsetting because there was absolutely no follow up throughout the whole process. Following up is one of the most important tasks of being a recruiter.

    In my opinion, they do not seem to value their candidates, when in reality, the candidates are what makes the agency successful. Maybe they are so behind in their work that they don't have time to follow up? It's a little sad to see how recruiters in certain agencies genuinely don't care about actually helping someone find a job that suits them (at least that's what it seems like). There was an extreme lack of communication and interaction and this turned me off.

    Human Resources and Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Premier Staffing in July 2016.

    Interview

    Very interesting... They were basically just seeing if I would be a good fit to send my resume over to their client companies. I thought I was applying for a job with Premier though, so it was a bit awkward. I had no previous experience with staffing agencies so I wasn't sure what to expect.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Premier Staffing (San Francisco, CA) in January 2016.

    Very polite agent. Asked good and thorough questions about my background, strengths, weaknesses, what I liked most and least about past jobs, what exactly was most important to me and how much I would like to make. She really seemed to care about matching me to just the right position for both my happiness and the satisfaction of the client. Interview was A+

    Very simple. They asked how much I wanted to make and I gave them a minimum for each location as it reflected a discount in my transportation costs.

    Recruiting Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakland, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Premier Staffing (Oakland, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process had two phases. The first was a Skype interview and the second was in person in the office. The Skype interview was pretty relaxed and the interviewer seemed more interested in getting to know me and how interested in the position I was. The following in person interview was not uptight, but a little more formal. The questions were not hard, but they seemed to be going through the motions.
