    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.

    Recruiting Manager Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

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

    Interview

    This company was by far the most difficult I have ever interviewed with. I applied for an external position, I got called in and was then told about an internal position. Everything sounded great I was excited. I did the first in person interview and they liked everything I had to say. They then set up and interview with the area director. That interview went great I was still excited. I asked her when should I expect to hear something and she said if I didnt hear from her by the end of oct basically I didnt get the job. I was still confident that I would get a response. I called and email for follow up and once the end of the month came I gave up. About a month later I got a call from senior management in Georgia to scheduling an interview with someone else (the original person I interviewed with left but not without giving me a recommendation that was good) I inteeviewed over the phone and then went on to the interview in person. The interview went great everyone in the office was wonderful. The next day I emailed a thank you letter I got a reply saying it was great meeting me and she should get back to me on the tuesday. Tuesday came and went, I waited a week and then called. I then spoke to another recruiter who informed me that the person I interviewed with went on maternity leave ( how exciting vut what does that mean for me) she then said that if she didnt leave any info on your interview more than likely you didnt get it. I then decided to go above the recruiter head and reached out to the sr manager that contacted me and she said she will set up an interview with the current person inplace. This has been a 4 month process and I am still waiting. From what I have been told Ranstad is a wonderful company to work for but this process has left a bad taste in my mouth

    Account Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    - Average phone screen with a recruiter. They seemed very unenthusiastic, even though I was clearly interested in the company and the role, so I wasn't sure what was going to happen from there. I thought it had gone well, but they were very hard to read.
    - Received follow up from the recruiter about setting up a second phone interview with a national director. I was super excited to move forward, and felt relieved that the first interview had gone well as I thought.
    - This is where things went downhill fast. My phone call with the national director was 15 minutes of basically being told I was not at all qualified and that I didn't have any experience (note I have 5+ years in inside/outside sales and account management since college). It started out with saying "[the recruiter] told me they didn't think you were a good fit for this position, but wanted to send me over your info anyway." They told me how they typically wouldn't hire someone like me for this role. What? Then why are we talking?
    - Overall it was disappointing, incredibly discouraging and almost offensive, and really a waste of everybody's time. If they didn't think I was qualified, I should not have continued with the interview process. Surely a national director has better things to do with their time. I feel like I was just used to fill the recruiter's quota of interviews or something. It's a shame because I was really excited about the role and could've brought a lot to the table.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Randstad US.

    Interview

    Kept me waiting for a long time. Suggested a lot of roles that I had previously told them were not what i wanted, when I told reminded them that these jobs were what i had specifically asked not to be presented with, one of the recruiters was quite short with me. Was overall an uncomfortable situation. I only accepted a role with them a couple of months later as a short term posting before traveling. I don't think I would have if I was looking for long term employment.
