    Bilingual Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Randstad US (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    The whole process took about three hours including a lengthy assessment. Since the interview was for a customer service rep position, I was asked to read from a script and my voice was recorded. Then I was asked questions about my resume. They were basic questions regarding the previous positions I had held, some of the challenges I have faced, comfort speaking with people over the phone, and proficiency with a computer. The assessment tested my Spanish, my ability to translate quickly, and there was a logic section (the longest one). The process wasn't very difficult but it was a bit challenging given the length. Randstad is a third party that finds employees based on a company's needs. I was personally under qualified for the position I applied for, but I was fortunate enough to learn everything I needed to know in training. This aspect should vary greatly depending on the position applied for.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Randstad US (New York, NY) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Recruiter called me stating they saw my resume online and wanted to set up phone interview. Recruiter wanted copy if driver's license, ssn# and references before even discussing jobs. Informed recruiter that I did not feel comfortable providing driver's license and ssn via email at this stage in the interviewing process. I happily provided references. Recruiter scheduled interview, then email to change interview date to following day and never called. I would definitely not recommend Randstad after this experience. Definitely stay away!

    Senior Quality M&P Process Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bentonville, AR

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Randstad US (Bentonville, AR) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I applied for a position on LinkedIn and was contacted very quickly to arrange a phone screen. The recruiter was very positive and communicated I would be moving on to the next round, but that if I didn’t hear from her, I should contact her the following week to remind her. I did. But the recruiter did not follow up with me. I didn’t hear from the Ranstad recruiter for another month and a half. When she did finally contact me she began: I’m sorry I haven’t been in contact but they finally want to interview you. I decided to go along with it and did a second interview. This interview went terribly. I was asked to speak to VTS software experience. I shared my personal experience which included tracking bids. After I finished, the recruiter told rudely told me that she couldn’t follow me and that the position didn’t require bid tracking. She ended the interview and, this, was the “I’ll never deal with this firm again” breaking point. Very unprofessional!

    Recruiter Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    I was contacted from someone saying they had saw my resume, and felt I may be a good fit for the position. We had a brief conversation and scheduled a phone interview. Had about a 30 minute interview over the phone. I was told I would need to do some online evaluations. I looked them up prior to completing to make sure I understood them, and would perform well. They were different assessments, one of which was wonderlic, and done thru a site called proctor U. The first two went fine. However during the third one which was thru the proctor u site, how it works is there is a proctor that observes you doing the assessment over your webcam. My proctor disconnected during my assessment. I called the site after to make sure my results were processed. I few days later I am told that I scored unusually low. I explained about the technical issues. I was told they would look into ti and send me a new assessment, but never did. BE AWARE, the assessment they use from a poor site may have technical issues and cause you to have issues which will not be taken into account.
