Caddy to say the least. Different levels of evaluations/ introduction, entry mid and senior . The process leaves you unsure, they are a hiring firm. Meaning their goal is to find you a job somewhere.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview

    First step was a phone interview and then was invited in for an in person interview that week. I ended up meeting with 2 people that day and spent about 2.5 hours. Invited back the following week to do a shadow day. I sat next to a person and they showed me the system they used, explained it to me a bit and then they made some calls and I listened in. They showed me how they note the account online, etc. Gave me a tour of the office and showed me the sales goals boards in the different departments and explained the goals, averages, etc.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Robert Half (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    Phone screen, then in person interview. Might have to go through a few in person interviews. They are looking for a cheerleader-like personality, so be very energetic. They will have other team members come out from the office to interview you, to get their opinion on how well they think you would clique with them.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you mind making cold calls?
      Do you think you would have an issue making 80+ outbound phone calls a day?
      what motivates you? (they want to hear money)

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Robert Half (Atlanta, GA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Very Aggressive. Phone/Skype Interview and then multiple in person interviews very quickly. Had interview with manager then director and then area manager. All within about a week and half. Guess they were quickly trying to fill the position, but it was very intimidating.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Robert Half (Seattle, WA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Three in-person rounds (usually two, though I met with the Regional VP because she was in town). Also took a personality profile test - I'm sure to gauge for sales. I was an employee referral - many hires are, including candidates interviewed whom the staff member sees as a strong candidate.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Robert Half (Milwaukee, WI) in July 2014.

    Interview

    It was easy and simple. They really like when you reach out and check the status. It shows you are interested. Make sure that you push for whatever position you are looking for. Make sure that you elaborate on you skills and let the know that you are good a multitasking and that you are good with customer relations. That is big with this job. Also, make sure that you send emails to those that interviewed you. That is a big plus as well.

    They offered $40k, and wouldn't budge on base. It takes some time to build a pipeline, be prepared to live off just that for some time, regardless of what they feed you.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Robert Half (Hoffman Estates, IL) in February 2012.

    Interview

    I interviewed with a manager and a director the first day I was there. They both seemed very nice and were very easy to interview with. The manager told me that I had all the qualifications that he was looking for, and then literally said "what do I have to do to get you to come work here?" The following day he called me at 8:15 in the morning to see if I was still interested in the position, and scheduled me for a second interview the next day. I met with three people that next day (Thursday), and I was told to call back and speak with the manager the next morning before 10:00. I called the next morning, and the manager was out at a client site. I called back two or three times that day, and he was never there. I also sent an email and never received a response. Finally, that next Monday, he got back to me and told me that he should have more information the next Thursday. The next Thursday came and went with no contact and no returned calls. Again, I emailed him, and Friday afternoon he replied that he had been busy and that he should know more in another week. So here I am on the day that I was supposed to hear from him again, and I have yet to hear anything. Again, no response to emails or voicemails. Their lack of response or respect for other people's time has cost them, because I'm moving on to other opportunities.
