    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.

    This company is literally a JOKE. I've never had such a bad experience when interviewing for jobs until Robert Half. They literally won't call you back. Don't waste your time.

    Interview

    I thought it was an interview for the position but it turns out it was just information for the recruiters to find a perfect position. I thought it was nice but it wasn't really that beneficial for me.

    Internal Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Robert Half (Phoenix, AZ) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The initial phone screen went great! I discussed my qualifications for the Internal Recruiter opportunity, salary requirements and extensive experience in Recruiting. We seemed to agree on Recruiting philosophies and Recruitment styles. An interview was scheduled to interview at their Biltmore location late in the evening to accommodate both of our schedules. Fast forward, I was escorted to a room to interview. Twenty minutes later, the Interviewer opens the door and gazes at me gracelessly, hesitantly extends her hand, introduces herself and apologizes for arriving late due to "a meeting". We discussed my background, I shared my passion for Business Development, Talent Acquisition and Employee Engagement. The Recruitment Manager seemed very uncomfortable.
    Eventually, the Interviewer brought in someone that she identified as a top leader. The Interviewer walked in and seemed very uncomfortable with my presence. I was asked the same repetitive questions and advised, "I'll take your resume and give it to my Recruiters to help you find a position-I'll email you"..Long and short, I haven't heard from either.
    What amazes me is the company's declaration that they are dedicated to diversity; however, my entrance into this location proved otherwise. Ironically enough, some of my culturally diverse, degree'd, experienced professional colleagues experienced the same treatment. This is 2017, broaden your horizon’s.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Robert Half (Baldwin Park, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I sent my application online, 2 days after, I received a call for phone interview. Recruiter set me up for a FaceTime interview the next day. There were set of assessments to be done at home. She also sent me forms thru email to be filled out and submitted before the video conference. Interview was done by 2 recruiters. Asked me basic questions about my work experiences, skills, etc. The interview went very well. The male recruiter actually likes me and seemed very excited to get me a job. He said they have a client looking for a candidate and he said I am a fit. Before the conference ended, he said he will contact this client to set me up for an in person interview. He said he will get back to me asap and this is an urgent hire. It's been 3 weeks, never heard from them. I think they should be more professional. Applicants always want to hear any kind of update.
