I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Robert Half in July 2017.

Meet several people at each line of business. Interview with several people and seemed to prolong time. I went to three office before landing a role. I was instructed to call and speak to this person and that person. Once offered, I started within two weeks so that part was not as bad.

    Interview

    Literally had me do multiple shadows only to go silent! Not very structured. VP was all over the place and scheduled then rescheduled numerous times. If they have you shadow more than once then give it up!

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Robert Half (Miamisburg, OH) in February 2018.

    Interview

    1. Identify hiring need

    Before a position can be filled, it must be identified as available. Positions are either newly formed or recently vacated. In either case, the hiring staff should meet to generate a prioritized list of job requirements including special qualifications, characteristics, and experience wanted from a candidate.

    2. Plan

    It’s important that all those involved in the hiring decision agree to the hiring process, steps, and communication channels to be used. The plan should include a timeline, recruitment plan, criteria for initial candidate screening, selection committee, interview questions, and instructions for taking notes.

    3. Create a job description

    The agreed-upon job requirements form the basis for the job description. Other necessary information includes essential functions to be performed in the role and the advantages of working for the company (i.e., workplace environment, compensation and benefits, perks, etc.).

    4. Post and promote job openings

    The job listing should be advertised internally so current employees can apply and make referrals. Other avenues for promotion are the company’s website, online job boards, social media, job fairs, and industry publications.

    5. Recruiting

    Beyond passive recruitment via job posts, the hiring staff should seek out qualified candidates via LinkedIn, social media, and industry events. This will ensure that some applications from potential candidates who are not actively searching for new jobs but who may be perfect for the role are received.

    6. Applicant screening

    As job applications arrive by email or via an applicant tracking system (ATS), the hiring staff reviews résumés/CVs and cover letters based on the criteria established in the planning step. Unqualified candidates’ applications are withdrawn from the applicant pool. Qualified candidates are informed of next steps beginning with a screening interview.

    7. Screening interview

    Initial interviews with applicants are typically phone calls with HR representatives. These interviews determine if applicants have the qualifications needed to do the job and serve to further narrow the pool of candidates. HR may also explain the interviewing process during this step.

    8. Interviews

    Depending on the size of the selection committee, several interviews are scheduled for each candidate.

    Early interviews are typically in-person, one-on-one interviews with applicants and the hiring manager and focus on applicants’ experience, skills, work history, and availability.
    Additional meetings with management, staff, executives, and other members of the organization can be one-on-one or panel interviews, formal or relaxed, on-site, off-site, or online (Skype, Google Hangouts). These interviews are more in-depth; in some organizations, each interviewer focuses on a specific subject or aspect of the job being filled to avoid overlap between interviews and to discover more about the applicants.
    Final interviews might be conducted by the company’s senior leadership or an interviewer from a previous round of interviews. These latter-stage interviews are generally extended to a very small pool of top candidates.
    9. Applicant talent assessment

    Before, during, or after interviews, hiring staff often assign applicants one or more standardized tests to assess personality type, talent (also called pre-employment tests), physical suitability for the job, cognition (reasoning, memory, perceptual speed and accuracy, math, and reading comprehension), and/or emotional intelligence. Some organizations also require applicants to take tests or complete assignments to demonstrate professional skills applicable to the open position.

    10. Background check

    One of the final steps prior to making a job offer is conducting background checks to review candidates’ criminal record, to verify employment history and eligibility, and to run credit checks. Some organizations also check social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) to make sure potential employees are likely to represent the company in a professional manner. Drug testing may also be warranted, depending on the nature of the job.
