Contractor Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Robert Half (Santa Clara, CA) in October 2012.

Interview

Had a 12:30 interview that got moved to 3:00, then waited in their lobby until 3:45 for the recruiter to come out. They asked basic questions, most of which could have been answered by my resume. The interview lasted about 15 minutes, and at the conclusion they told me the hourly rate would be $5 less than other staffing agencies I am signed up with. They also said they would be e-mailing me some skills tests, but I have yet to receive them.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Robert Half in September 2014.

    Interview

    Getting the initial call and setting up the online interview was a breeze. Liked the fact very much that it used Skype so that I didn't have to drive across town. So kudos for that. They did have a specific position in mind for me right away and focused their questions on that position. Was disappointed not to be discussing several job possibilities considering the number of years of expertise I have in the field and the wide variety of skills and industries I have worked in.

    Interview Questions

    • I'm always hesitant to discuss salary without knowing specifically who I am working for as I know it can surprise people how much real expertise costs, and I tend to set my scale depending on difficulty, work week, benefits, and if the position is employee, contract-to-hire, etc.... Answering questions on expected salary without seeing the work environment and knowing details on the job demands is difficult.   Answer Question

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Robert Half (Boston, MA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    My resume was passed to Robert Half through my school and I was contacted for an interview. From the moment I walked in, everyone was really welcoming. The paper work was easy to fill out, and met with someone within minutes. The interview lasted approximately 30 min. And was more based on what my prior experience consisted of, and being briefed on what the company is about and what to expect. My interviewer was the Assistant Vice President of the finance department, and I felt comfortable choosing Robert Half at the end of the interview. There are steps after your interview that are pertinent to employment.
