    Accounting Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Greensboro, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I met with one person who got a general feel for the type of work that I was seeking. They identified some opportunities they had on hand and asked what companies I had my eyes on. They also asked my acceptable pay range, and desire for longevity (temporary, temp to perm, or permanent only). Within two weeks I was receiving calls and offers to interview with companies in the area.

    Staff Accountant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Robert Half in August 2016.

    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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Quincy, MA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    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.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Robert Half (Seattle, WA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I was looking for a job as a web designer. I uploaded my resume at their website. In two weeks, I called the company if they will help me find a job. I have been working freelancing, and haven't worked full time for a while, and trying to get back to the regular workplace. The recruiter called me back, and said that their clients want someone with the recent experiences, and I was not the right candidate. I learned that the recent work experiences and recent portfolio is a must to be considered.
