Technical Recruiter Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waltham, MA
Declined Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Randstad US (Waltham, MA) in April 2016.

Interview

I had two separate negative experiences interviewing with Randstad Technologies. If you are considering interviewing in Waltham, please continue to read this.. My first interview in 2014 was with Eric in Waltham. When I showed up for the interview, the receptionist had no record of my interview. I didn't think about it at the time. During my interview, Eric asked me "how I liked working for my grandfather?", little did he know that I never worked for my grandfather and he recently passed away. I was immediately caught off guard and felt very uncomfortable. Long story short I finished the interview and never heard back from them.

A year later a recruiter reached out to me for the same position. I happened to be searching for a job and I took it to sharpen my interview skills. I had two phone interviews- one with a recruiter and one with a recruiting director. Both phone interviews they forgot to call me! Both times they apologized and rescheduled.

In summary, all three recruiters/ directors that I spoke to were VERY unprofessional and disorganized.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Randstad US in March 2016.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by about 3-4 different people all for a few minutes, they were all nice through the process. I should of got hints about what this job entailed through the interview. Found out after I have been here almost 8 months that they have an extremely high turnover and there's been about 60 plus recruiters that have come and gone within a 3 year period. There's already been about 5-6 departures since I've been here. If you don't mind staring at a computer 10 plus hours a day and calling 300+ people a week most of which you can't understand as you are going to be in IT and they are foreigners then this is the job for you. Eventually you just go numb from saying the same voicemail over and over. And good luck getting personal info on some of the accounts looking for highly sensitive info that you would think a scammer was trying to get from you to be able to submit people to roles. Without that info you can't submit them, so you'll lose plenty of great candidates due to that.

    Interview Questions

    • They would question why I was interested in getting into recruiting and were trying to talk me out of the position in a way to see how committed I was to the opportunity...I should have listened to them.   1 Answer

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Randstad US.

    Interview

    Fairly straightforward. Nothing out of the ordinary for a typical recruiting role. I was referred in so possibly easier for me. Phone interview, face to face, offer. Be prepared to sell yourself and why you can be a great recruiter regardless of tools.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Randstad US (Atlanta, GA) in July 2013.

    Interview

    VERY long interview process. Had to first speak with a recruiter, then the hiring manager, THEN they brought me in for a multi-interview, where I met with multiple people. This took way too long, especially considering it's an entry level role.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Randstad US (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    The interview consisted of a two part face to face meeting. I was referred to the hiring manager by a friend, then contacted by an administrative person to arrange a time. I met for 1 hour with the branch manager of the location that I would be working in. Following that conversation, I was introduced to the team and they were allowed to individually interview me. The next day I was contacted, this time by the branch manager that I had interviewed with previously, and scheduled another face to face interview with the Regional manager. That interview lasted roughly an hour as well. I was offered the position immediately following the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • For me, the most difficult question to answer was what motivated me. Knowing that I would not get the job if I did not have competitive drive or was not motivated strongly by money.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. The salary was set and the commission plan was not disclosed at the time of the offer.

    Application

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

    Interview

    I was interviewed by several key managers in the organization, as well as a couple of recruiters, which was nice because they were able to give me a realistic view of a "day in the life of..." They all had excellent educational backgrounds with degrees from many leading universities including University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, University of Florida, Alabama, Georgia State, etc and I could tell that they really enjoy their football! When I interviewed the process was very quick and I was hired within a very reasonable time frame. Interviews typically consist of a phone screen, an initial face-to-face interview and then a more in-depth face-to-face interview which involves some of the Executive Management Team.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview was based mostly on my educational background and the year and a half of recruiting experience that I had gained at another firm. There is not a particularly difficult question that comes to mind.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was not necessary as I felt that it was a fair offer.
