    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter for a Skype interview. The recruiter sent me a confirmation email requesting information and alerting me that I would receive an email prompting me to set up an account. The morning of the day of the interview, I did not receive the email to sign up for the account, so I reached out to the recruiter to make sure she received my information, as I had not received the automated emails expected. No response. Ten minutes before the interview, the recruiter called me and notified me she needed to change the time of our interview as she was "too busy". This happened three times that day, the original time for my interview was 11:30. The third time she rescheduled, she decided to hand me off to a co-worker for a 2:30 interview. I asked to reschedule for the next day.

    The next day the co-worker called me, who was obviously in training. He had another co-worker with him, who I am assuming was his trainer. I have no contact information for either of these employees. He asked me a couple of generic interview questions, before passing me off to his co-worker. She then explained that I would have to "settle" and was completely depreciating in her explanation of the jobs that were available. Also, she told me that I should contact previous offers that I had turned down to attempt to get hired there.

    Overall, I was completely dissatisfied with the entire process, and more than a little upset with the amount of my time they wasted. I do not appreciate a recruiter telling me that I need to settle, or being brushed off in order to be a part of an employees training program.

    I have a bachelors degree and have worked for multiple Fortune 300 companies. The experience with Robert Half was completely unprofessional.
