    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview

    My interview was over a year ago, it involved a Skype video chat. I didn't get the offer, but she told me a straight up lie of a follow-up interview happening in-person and with a group of people watching. This halted my job search process, as I was expecting a follow-up email. Nothing. The funny thing is that Robert Half contacted me a year later (albeit another HR office) wanting to hire me after seeing my information in my university's career database, which I declined after my previous negative experience.

    Content Editor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Robert Half (San Ramon, CA) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me; was brought in as a last-minute candidate. After a phone and in-person interview, the recruiter let me know she'd follow up with next steps (and even told me that the following week would be the next round of interviews). Was never contacted, so I reached out after a week. She called me shortly after (not mirroring my mode of communications, as I have a full-time job and can't take personal calls all the time) to let me know that they hired someone that day. No apologies for not following up, so it was a weird experience overall. She encouraged me to look at other roles at the company, but I don't plan on going through her if I do find something I'm interested in.

    Long story short - based on company reviews, the recruiters have a quota of people they need to bring in, so I think this was one of those situations where she was more concerned with getting qualified candidates interested rather than seeing it through with a professional process for all.

    Also, the interviewers used pre-populated behavioral questions rather than job-specific ones in this case. It's very old-school.
