    Legal Secretary Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview

    Working with this staffing agency is honestly a joke. Be prepared for them to make an initial phone call soon after you apply, then an interview, and then complete silence. They provide no updates to you and fail to contact you when they claim they will. Completely unprofessional; I have absolutely no faith in this agency to help me find employment or even "market me out" to potential employers. Seriously, don't waste your time. You're better off on your own.

    Legal Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Robert Half (Miami, FL) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Staffing agents (Miami area) are generally rude and unprofessional returning calls and emails. Interviews are mostly conducted on the phone and tell you they will call back within an hour, and they do not. Then, when you call them, they are never available. Stay focussed on your self and don't let the set downs with people that truly are incapable of helping detract your job search. If you are unemployed, looking for a job IS your full time job. Have patience with the market and with yourself. Never lose faith of your goals and don't be pressured into taking a low paying job.

    Legal Support Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Robert Half (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Interview came a free a week of back and forth phone calls. The office is busy and the experience is quite impersonal. Feels more like a mill which may be expected from a temp agency which I have never used before. The woman who interviewed me asked repetitive questions and seemed to get flustered. Maybe she was new at the job. In any case, nothing really materialized from it . Fortunately I found a job through other channels.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Robert Half (Los Angeles, CA) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Robert Half Legal has a nice location on Wilshire. With any temp agency, it is quite annoying to have to physically meet with the recruiter, especially on a busy Los Angeles afternoon on Wilshire Blvd. You have to find your own parking, because it is not included. It took nearly 1 hour for me to be interviewed, but I finally made it in. The recruiter was very nice, and actually found me a position in about 2 weeks. After that assignment ended, I did not hear back from her or anoyone else there.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Robert Half in March 2009.

    Interview

    I applied for a permanent legal assistant position, but was directed to the temporary/contract side of the office. I never spoke with anyone in permanent placement. I filled out all of their paperwork upon arrival and then spoke for about 30 minutes with a recruiter. The recruiter's comments and questions seemed fairly rote and perfunctory. I was not asked to take any tests.
