    Financial Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Spherion.

    Interview

    I first had a phone conversation and it went really well and I was asked to do some skills test which I did and then I was told to attend an interview but it was just the initial screening interview. The interviewer was late and she was not apologetic plus the interview was very rushed. I found the person interviewing me really rude and she kept cutting me off while I was speaking. I just got done the interview and I have been advised to wait few days for an opening. I am waiting for an offer.

    Difficult Interview

    It consisted of several steps along with an in depth online personality assessment. It was somewhat off putting as an an applicant, but I was really interested in the opportunity. I initially applied and interviewed with the intention of usibg the company as a recruiter for my next role, but the recruiter I met with thought I would be a good fit to join their team. So I applied and went through the the interview process.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbia, SC
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Spherion (Columbia, SC) in August 2016.

    Interview

    This has been the worst experience with a staffing agency that I have ever had. The same day I applied, I received an email to participate in an open interview the next morning. The experience was more like a cattle herd, than a legitimate work opportunity. There were roughly 10 of us ranging from construction workers to business professionals. Spherion keeps the doors locked during business hours which was alarming to me. Who is coming by their office that they feel the need to keep the doors locked. One of the interviewees asked to use the bathroom when we arrived and the interviewer told him they "don't have public bathrooms." The man was there for an interview, he did not wander in off the street.

    We were brought into a small room to complete applications and then each person had to stand up and give an elevator pitch to the whole group. After that, the interviewer went into the hallway to pick through the applications and select who she was going to interview that day, and who would be getting call backs. It was awful and uncomfortable. I left before the interviewer came back to select people for interviews. I don't think I was taken seriously as a job candidate, and I don't understand how you can come to any serious conclusions about a person's qualifications when you're comparing business professionals to construction workers.

    Office Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Little Rock, AR
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Spherion (Little Rock, AR) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Very friendly, seemed interested in my previous accomplishments. Requested a verbal one year commitment, but also promised incentive potential for future profitability through effective recruiting strategies during that time. They never delivered on the discussion regarding commission earnings, production increases, as well as verified overtime pay.

    Although I was initially hired to replace the existing Generalist, in February replaced the Lead Recruiter, who during her tenure produced approximately 1000 hours the year earlier until I was hired on in November.

    Also during this time, approximately 5% of assignment talent were offered permanent employment, the biggest retention result from any Recruiter at Spherion Little Rock.

    Employee Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Salt Lake City, UT

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Spherion (Salt Lake City, UT) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The interviewing process was really easy. It was more of a conversation. They just wanted to know if I could do the job and they just gave it to me. It was nice but they were in the middle of needing a lot of recruiters for a job assignment. I feel like they would actually ask more questions when it's not during a busy season.
