    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Randstad US (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    I was contacted by 3 different people. I went through 3 different phone screenings and 2 interviews. They also had me take 3 different assessments. They acted very positive about me coming on as a team member praising my prior experience. Even the tone of their voices inflected towards me receiving an offer. I did my research and they had 2 posting for the same position the month i was contacted and 2 additional postings the month prior. They made it seem like it was between me and another but that still left 2 positions open.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Randstad US (Orlando, FL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and took an online interview. I did horrible 😱. Received an email 2 days later stating they liked to meet me in person for an in - person interview. Took about 20 min with a manager rather than "hr". He was very professional and the interview was
    mainly the interviewee asking the questions. He asked me about my background and experience but mainly if I had questions so I made up a lot on the spot. Scheduled my background test and drug test as soon as I got home through an email from him and everything else is history.

    Overall he wanted to know my availability, that was a must!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Randstad US (Phoenix, AZ) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Was long and dragged out, from the time the recruiter called to the profile test, the first screen the second screen. The time between and the expectation that there were no other opportunities available .

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Randstad US (Winston-Salem, NC) in April 2017.

    Interview

    It was the typical questions like what is the worst experience you have had, sort of the thing. It was impersonal though and too the point. It didn't mirror the experience I had previously with the company in VIrginia.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Randstad US (Malvern, PA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    In depth personality screening, rounds of interviews. I am not going to provide details beyond what I already provided. The recruiter provided information on background. Based on the background information provided, I studied the method, which was helpful. However, ultimately the candidate has to impress.

    Interview

    Met with two recruiters who specialise in the Human Resources field.
    One in permanent placements and one in contract, temp / part time.
    Both meetings were productive and the recruiters had the knowledge and understanding of the industry and the city.

    Interview Questions

    • As it was a recruitment meeting, the interview was not intense towards me, it was more about understanding what I was looking for etc.   Answer Question

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Randstad US (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    (Randstad is a staffing agency and I "reactivated" my profile with them; some of the questions below do not apply to me. If you sign with them, they require skills, drug and background testing just to be on-boarded. Then you check in with them weekly, if you aren't working. They will be looking for a company where they can place you, as long as you remind them that you are still searching. My 'free' advice to all who read this: Continue your job search, don’t wait for them to do it, they are supposed to be like a helper to you. And don’t take assignments that pay less than what you need, or you may get “stuck” in a position.) I met with a recruiter who asked pointed questions about what I was looking for in an assignment; I was also told that I wouldn't be 'put just anywhere', something that I appreciated coming off of a job that left me with a "bad taste in my mouth", so to speak.

    Interview Questions

    • One thing asked was, "do you prefer administrative work or paralegal assignments"? Which was good, because I have experience with both and it showed that the interviewer may be interested not only in 'getting a warm body in a seat' but in what I'd like this go 'round.   1 Answer

    Technical Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Randstad US (Seattle, WA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Applied through LinkedIn. Internal recruiter scheduled a phone screen to chat and review my background. She made me completely disinterested in the position. At the end she said "So... are you sure you want to continue with this position....?" In a kind of demeaning way. Her attitude completely pushed me away from the company even if they offer decent pay and benefits.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Randstad US in March 2017.

    Interview

    Phone Interview - Our conversation was brief but overall positive and informative. After the interview, the recruiter emailed me to confirm my schedule and told me I would speak with hiring managers that same week. I was sent benefits information as well. I waited for next steps and cleared my schedule for the next phone interview however I did not hear back from the recruiter. I felt the process was a bit unprofessional so I decided to move forward with the interview opportunities presented by other companies.
