    It was pretty easy, I went in at the Fremont branch, they definitely asked about every point on my resume and wanted specific details about it. Also it is located right by the Bart station so it's a really convenient location to work.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Robert Half (San Francisco, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was straight forward and everything was done electronically. First step was to complete the employment application, then a self assessment and skills test. Next was the oral interviews with managers tof different areas. Overall was a good experience, but have not heard anything back yet.

    Accounting Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Ramon, CA

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Robert Half (San Ramon, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Multiple phone screenings with two different recruiters. Proficiency test completed for excel. One recruiter told me I did not perform well and should lower my expectations on hourly wage. Other recruiter told me I did good on it. Hmmmm...why the discrepancy? Made me feel like they were trying to bully me into a lower wage from the beginning.
    A 2 hour interview for an entry-level position. 2 hours, 6 people. Is that really necessary? They basically tore my resume apart and dissected every position I've every had. Again, this was for an entry-level job that I was more than qualified for.

    Temporary Employee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakland, CA
    No Offer
    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!

    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pleasanton, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Robert Half (Pleasanton, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Terrible interview process and not a good group of people to work with. I was brought in multiple times for a "1.5 hour long interview" that ended up being over 3 hours each time! They had me sit in on phone calls that had no relevance to a regular interview process. Every person I met with seemed to be challenging me on why I was interviewing for this position as if I wasn't good enough for it. After wasting my time for each interview I expected to at least get an offer or a good explanation of why I did not get one. They emailed me a week after the process to tell me that "they will continue to pursue other candidates". When I asked for feedback on what went wrong they stopped responding. Extremely unprofessional and one of the worst places I've ever interviewed in my life.

    Accounting Consultant SPS Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Walnut Creek, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Robert Half (Walnut Creek, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    In-person interview with RHI was scheduled right away. Client interviews were few and far between. Client interview feedback was vague criticism of trivial things. I was however gaining valuable experience with each interview. Contact dropped off, partly on my end, as it appeared they did not have any leads for my level of experience. I was generating more activity on my own and I did not want to cross wires and cause any confusion by having them pitch me to companies I had already contacted.
