    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Randstad US.

    Interview

    Structured interview. The recruiter asked for my compensation for the last 3 jobs, names of all the companies I am applying to, the name of other recruiters I'm working with and the name of consultants I work on as part of my current role. That's on top of the three references he needed to build his confidence in my candidacy. Yet, he had no positions available in the industries and salary ranges I was looking for.

    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

    • I was asked about my IT / internet troubleshooting background. Was also told about the 12 hour shifts and "opportunity" for overtime.   Answer Question

    Interview

    It was very fast. I went through all the interviews only to find out the VP didn't think I had enough cold calling experience which was weird since the job stating no experience needed.

They are not just looking for people they are looking for talent who can drive the market and help place candidates in jobs.
