    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Was told about a position which needed someone to fill in ASAP. I did a face to face interview with a Robert Half recruiter. Pointless by the way as this type of interview is a way for them choose people on how they look. They then said that they would get me a face to face with the client by the end of the week. I didn't hear back so I emailed and got a response to check back next week. I emailed and called several times and the recruiter never returned my calls after I left my info with his secretary. One day I lied about my name to the secretary and he picked up. He told me that he's been busy and that he doesn't have any responsibility to reach out to the client, that someone else in the company is working it. At this point I gave up and recommend no one use these company. They only want your info and references so they can add it to their database.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Robert Half (Richmond, VA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Quick interview to see if I was a normal person who could be recommended for an interview with other firms. Mostly small talk and asked about experience and interviewing expectations. Offered interviewing advice for outside firm interviews. It was very laid back and almost felt like a mock interview or even practice.

    Interview

    Apply for a job on RH website. A recruiter sets up a Pre-screen skype interview, then you respond to an email and fill out all the forms, then the actual recruiter emails you. From there, the recruiter looks at the jobs you already applied to at RH online. You do have to ask them to actually look in their database to match you to other jobs, which, to me would be an automatic thing.

    Entry Level Recruiter Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Robert Half (Quincy, MA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    First, you would have to go through a phone screen, speaking with either a corporate recruiter, Metro Manager, or Branch Manager. From there, if they like what they hear they will schedule a one on one interview. At the location where I was applying to, for the one on one interview, I met with the branch manager and then the division director of Office Team. The waiting time for the hiring process is very long. I did not get called in for a second face to face interview until a month later. For the second face to face interview, you pretty much sat on the floor and observe how things are done, in terms of the recruiting cycles. Afterwards, I met with the metro manager and went over what I observed. I was told that the next step would be them sending out an application, followed by a personality assessment. No clue why they don't do the personality assessment in the beginning rather than towards the end, but each company does it differently I guess. If you pass the personality assessment step, I believe you would be hired or most likely will. Good luck folks, and remember to ask questions after every interview, I think that was my downfall from not getting through to the next step.
