    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Robert Half (Cambridge, MA) in June 2012.

    Interview

    1:1 interview, I was surprised that I did not get any skills test, nor were I told that I would have to take one before the interview. The interview is easy, they just want to know about your background and they take notes on your resume. When I asked them if they have any jobs opening at this time, they said no, which was different from what I heard from the voice mail. It raised my doubt that they just want to add you into their candidate pool, plus, I never heard from my interviewer anymore after that, though I have tried to call them many times.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Robert Half (Minnetonka, MN) in July 2013.

    Interview

    They called me on a Wednesday and I interviewed the following Tuesday. Everyone there was EXTREMELY dressed up and professional. I felt a little underdressed with dress pants and a button-up T-shirt. The interview was really easy. He talked most of the time and the only question that he really asked is how much I would like to make. I had prepared for a hard interview with difficult questions but he barely even asked me any questions. He was very nice and friendly and I felt very relaxed.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any. I expected 'tell me about yourself' or 'strengths/weaknesses' but there weren't any questions asked. I wish that every interview was this easy!   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    He called me the Monday after I interviewed and offered me a 2 day job that would star that afternoon. I had a doctors appointment that day, so I said that I couldn't.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview

    The interview didn't surprise me much. The interview paperwork took about a half hour to complete and then they asked me to "Tell me about yourself." Then again, they never got back to me about temporary work. They told me that there was no work available yet. I have a degree in accounting and they said that there was no work.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Robert Half (Saddle Brook, NJ) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I was called in for an interview just to get to know information about what they have to offer. The person I met with kept critisizing my resume and crossing off positions that i have held in the past while also telling me that I am asking for was outrageous and I should take a cut. no offense to him! i did my homework better than him and I am confident with what I was asking for. Of course, I ended up leaving very disapointed and he never contacted me again. It showed his level of professionalism at the end.

    Interview Questions

    • He mostly kept telling me to lower my expectation rather than getting to learn more about my credentials and prior experience.   Answer Question
