    Temporary Employee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hauppauge, NY
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Robert Half (Hauppauge, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    After applying the position, I got the call two days later and schedule the meeting. Same as other companies, filling up some question before meeting with the recruiter. I waited for about 10 mins, but I got there earlier.
    It was a short, professional interview that basically checked through the information presented on the resume. She didn't ask too much question about those professional question about accounting or finance. But the environment is quite relaxing and not stressful at all.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Robert Half (Oakland, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Meeting with the area recruiter was professional and informative. Mutual exchange of information was done respectfully. The recruiter wanted more info and did offer to assist as I provided it to the company. As my interests were discussed, the recruiter was helpful in bringing in the marketing recruiter to meet with me. Positive interaction with her and an interest to place me. After interview, I found only 43 marketing jobs listed in San Francisco Bay. Perhaps they are growing that division, but none of the jobs met my skillset. Hope they grow and get more job placements!

    Temporary Employee- Receptionist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Auburn, WA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Robert Half (Auburn, WA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    As soon as you have an interview your almost always guaranteed in the system. It's getting a positron that can be a little tricky. You have to email your lead person every week and be ready when something comes up. It took them close to a month to find me a few positions, but there really easy and you're just doing basic clerical work. Good for some quick cash.

    Temporary Employee Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Minneapolis, MN
    Accepted Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Robert Half (Minneapolis, MN).

    Interview

    The interview process was not a process at all. They did not ask the "normal" interview questions, instead they wanted to see your personality and your willingness to work and try new things. It was very laid back and it felt like I was hired before I went into the interview. They want someone who will represent their company well and their clients will do their own interviewing to see if you are a good fight for their specific company.

    Interview Questions

    • There really was none, I was very surprised at how laid back the whole process was.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    You don't negotiate price right then and there, you either accept or reject temp. jobs and the salary that comes with them at the time that the job is available.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Robert Half (San Antonio, TX) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Took preliminary skills test and passed all. Went to office to fill out full application. Interviewed speaking to two recruiters. I have excellent business references who would testify as to my character. I was told that I could not work for their agency after honestly answering question about criminal background. I thought they might consider the decades that have past since the misdemeanor offense and that honesty is what they are looking for. I am unhappy with a system where there is no standardized (by law) question about background. I would like politician's to legislate limits on what businesses can ask on an application.
