    DCO Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Randstad US.

    Interview

    Managers here have no formal leadership training, and therefore do not understand what traits they should be looking for to fill this role.

    Their best performing staff largely have no IT backgrounds yet they keep asking about it like it's a real prerequisite.

    Instead they should be interviewing/testing questions geared toward whether or not an individual is DETAIL ORIENTED. That is the most important trait and it's constantly lopped onto the interview questions.

    They also hire individuals with zero previous work experience, have foul body odor, and have no work ethic nor understand workplace social norms. Anchors are then expected to train these indidcuals as if they're competent for the job / have any hope of being good at it.

    Interview Questions

    Average Interview

    Interview

    The interview process was a phone interview first and was followed by an in person meeting at a restaurant. The phone interview centered around my past experiences with the company and the in person meeting elaborated a bit more on the duties of the role and my ability to handle multiple equally urgent tasks.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were pretty typical for this type of role and a lot of them centered around my ability and willingness to handle multiple urgent tasks at one time.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Randstad US (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I knew a friend who worked at Fox so she called her HR rep and asked them what temp company they used. The Fox HR put me in contact with someone from Randstad. The recruiter was prompt in asking for my resume and then scheduling an interview with me. The interview was easy and the whole process only lasted a half hour. The experience was quite nice. The recruiter lined up an interview for me with a department at Fox. I am still in the interview process.

    MSP Site Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Providence, RI
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Randstad US (Providence, RI) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process moved quickly but was very tedious. Phone screening followed by 2 assessments (personality and aptitude). Next steps where a phone interview and then an in person interview. After the in person interview I was asked to take another personality and aptitude test. I can understand the purpose of the first set of assessments however, additional ones were over kill in my opinion. I am a recruiter and in my experience a skilled interviewer should know if someone is a good fit after initial assessments, phone interviews and an in person interview. I was eventually offered the position to which I declined due to salary requirements. When I declined my offer the recruiter became upset which I can understand to a certain degree. However, telling me that I would probably be let go from my current position within six months was unprofessional and rude. I had a decent experience up until that point.

    Operations Specialist Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Randstad US.

    Interview

    I would not recommend this organization. The interview process was unnecessary and tedious. Communication and follow-up was horrible! Why make candidates wait without giving them an update if a selection was made. Give candidates respect, especially with their time so that there is opportunity to seek other jobs. Very upsetting seeing as though Randstad is a respectable staffing agency with many divisions. Be advised that if you are going to interview with this organization let them know your time is valuable and should be treated as such, and you will not go through repeated interviews with them if they have no professional follow-up. Two weeks for no offer is unprofessional.

    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tampa, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Randstad US (Tampa, FL).

    Interview

    I was initially contacted through an email stating that she had seen my resume on a career site and would like to talk to me about a position that she thought I would be a good fit for so we set up a 30 minute phone interview. It went well she mostly asked about work history and asked questions that related to the skills one would need to be a recruiter (ex. Team oriented, interview experience, etc.). She then gave a lot of information about the company and why I should work there and then she followed up to set up a video interview with the team leads (would have been in person had I been in the area) which was 30 minutes (one of them didn't show up) and this time was mostly me asking questions and them asking what I knew about the company. After the video interview I was contacted again by the internal recruiter to set up and in person interview at the office I'd be working at which I agreed to drive to and interview. This one was mostly like the video interview with me asking them a lot of questions and them asking me why they should hire me and what I knew about the company. One of my questions for them was what did a normal day look like and then they had me job shadow for 30 more minutes. They then asked me to email a follow up of a short email with again the reasons they should choose me. Overall it was a pretty quick and well organized process for me. 3 weeks, 3 interviews, and 1 job offer. I'm very excited to start working here and hope it lasts a long time.
