    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Robert Half (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2009.

    Interview

    Presentation by the Sales Rep and associates was very positive and polished. Interviewer was focused on getting as much personality and skill set information as possible out of me in a short period of time, but had good interpersonal skills that counteracted the time crunch they are obviously under. A bit of a tag team approach, but still decent communication of vital info. Opportunity to present portfolio was very good.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Robert Half (Chicago, IL) in June 2008.

    Interview

    I reviewed job ops on the Robert Half Management Resources website and posted my resume. I was called by an account executive who saw my resume and thought I would be a good fit for one of their clients. This division of Robert Half primarily provides contract/project work it's clients. He asked me to go through my resume describing my previous experience. Then I was invited to the office for an 1:1 interview.

    When I walked into the office, there was a large reception area with alot of activity (applicants). Some applicants were wearing suits while others were dressed casually. Somewhere in the office I noticed several different division names. One was Accountemps, another was Technology. I was relieved to know that they weren't all here for the same opportunity.

    I had a 1:1 interview with a different individual than I had spoken with on the phone. Same process...walked the person through my resume. Then I was told that this contract position was related to SOX compliance and was asked to describe my previous SOX experience in detail.

    The next day I had phone interview with the client. The person who had interviewed me the day before was with me. He coached me before the call. I went through the same SOX experience description with the client. They agreed to hire me (as a consultant). My work lasted for 4 weeks and I was paid an hourly rate by Robert Half.

    The interviewers are professional accountants and are very well dressed.

    They had a room of computers for applicant testing. I took an Excel test, which was very straightforward

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    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.

    Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Robert Half (Denver, CO) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Out of State Applicant - Inquired about local paralegal positions with recruiter Rachel via phone, and scheduled an in person interview. My process was a lot different from what I learned from people that went on initial screenings and/or interviews. Robert Half Legal treats applicants differently based on: local vs out of state, race and ethnicity, and I heard from some people, age also plays a significant factor regarding selection and current opportunities.
