    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Robert Half (Des Moines, IA) in June 2018.

    Interview

    Second time I interviewed with RHT. Last time was about 15 years ago. That interviewer was unprofessional. Talked over me. Asked a question and then never gave me a chance to follow up. Thought this time around would be different. I was wrong.
    Did a Skype interview. Was told I'd receive an email with docs I needed to complete to get into their system. Didn't receive. Followed up the next day. Didn't hear back. Pretty similar to others' experiences.
    RHT has had two chances. I'm done with them...

    Help Desk Technician Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview

    Phone screening followed by skype interview: just talking them about yourself, experience, education so on. The interviewer is also pretty nice. After that, I was required to submit some onboarding forms(Intake form, WOTC, registration etc)which took a lot of time getting references, info and such. After submitting, complete silence/no updates from them which is very unprofessional after taking so much time filling those unnecessary forms. Had to follow-up the recruiter and she said "the client doesn't need an employee anymore". Why make someone go through all those if they are not sure about it? Now, I got an offer with a better position, better pay, better company than them. Never ever applying to RHT again.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Robert Half (Boise, ID) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Did an initial phone interview which then lead me to an in person interview with the branch director, very down to earth and easy interview due to feeling so comfortable, was asked back for a job shadow (be prepared to call a client because they want to hear your phone skills). The next step if you're still up for the job is an in person interview with both the director and the regional VP to see if you fit in with their culture and so you can meet another higher up. After that, they call references then extend an offer.
