We Support Our Veterans

“My transition to Kforce was fantastic!  My leaders understand and appreciate the circumstances surrounding a veteran’s transition from military to civilian life.  There can be struggles and hardships, but having a military foundation also brings many new ideas and concepts to the office, and I am fortunate enough to have leaders that appreciate and foster the skills that I bring to the environment.”   -Andrea Hamilton, Account Manager/ Talent Representative

    Bringing work home, work/life balance can be an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! My manager has been there for me through some serious personal issues and I truly feel like leadership looks out for their employees. I have never worked under leadership that cared so much about the growth of their employees.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kforce.

    Interview

    First phone interview and then took an assessment. Then went in to meet marketing VP but met recruiting team manager. Seemed to go well. Got called for a third interview and was told it would be 'panel', but it was just with the VP. He was the most arrogant person I've ever met. He was answering emails and wouldn't make eye contact. He ended the interview in about thirty minutes. I was contacted by recruiter who stated VP didn't see me a good fit for the position. Interesting that three others did and their assessment proved it, but he disagreed.
