    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Robert Half.

    Interview

    Response was prompt. However, after a general interview session, they then wanted to put me in for a position completely different from what I had applied at a company I didn't want. Looking around the waiting room, it seemed they worked on small but frequent placement volume and wanted to get the most likely placement for the least amount of work.

    Neither a good company nor a good position.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Robert Half in March 2014.

    Interview

    They sent me on an interview for a position with a company in Horsham. When I arrived for the interview, the HR person informed me that they were in the process of making an offer to someone else and that they'd told the Robert Half representative that the position had been filled. I called my contact at Robert Half and of course he could not explain what happened. He told me he'd "get to the bottom of it" but there never was any information or explanation as to what happened. Then after telling me that I'd hear from him every few weeks "just to check in" it was another 4 months with no contact. Even when I emailed to follow up with him and let him know how disappointed I was, he didn't reply to me email. Do not trust the Robert Half Company to help you find a job. They are totally unreliable!!

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Robert Half (Parsippany, NJ) in March 2011.

    Interview

    They did not mention any time before the face to face interview that it would also consist of skills test and without any offer for employment asks to fill out all employment related forms. I required visa sponsorship and hence was not offered the position.

    Senior Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Robert Half (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    One recruiter from Robert Half contacted me, since he found my resume in a career site. We fixed an appointment. I did the interview with 2 different recruiters from Robert Half, one responsible for the Contract assignment, and the other responsible for permanent positions. Before going to the interview I visited Glassdoor comments, and all the negative feedback. I witnessed them myself. First, before even starting the interview, the receptionist take all your personal data, including SSN and driving license. Then later you join the interviewer. I specifically told them from start that I was looking for a permanent position.They did general questions, nothing outstanding. They call you for interview without having a vacancy. Practically the job posts in their site are mostly outdated. During the interview they try to tell you that you will need to be flexible, and accept offers that may be lower than your salary expectations. At the end of interview they say they don't have a position that match your skills, however, after the dept meeting they will be sending an email with all the possible jobs that you might be a match. Never received email from the interviewer, as promised. However, approximately 1 week later, a recruiter from Accountemps contacted me for a temporary position, asking me if I want to go for interview to their client. After asking her to send me first the job description, she said she doesn't have it as her client didn't provide the job description yet. Confused not knowing what to do, I said yes, but inside me I knew that they work only with the sense of urgency to provide a solution to the client, without making sure that is a good match, or the candidate will be happy and satisfied working in that a position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Robert Half (San Francisco, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for a Senior Accountant role on Craigslist. A recruiter from Robert Half emailed me the next day asking me to come in for a quick interview. I came in that day after work for a 1 hour interview. During the first half of the interview, the recruiter told me how great I was, how desirable my resume was, and how much the employers he represents are going to want me. For the second half of the interview, he negotiated how low he could "sell" me to the company, and told me I should accept a salary 30% lower than the salary posted on the job ad. He went on and on about how my current salary will determine my next salary, so I can't ask for too much.
