    If you've ever worked with a Temp agency, the procedures are pretty standard - complete application, submit resume and references.

Thereafter, meet with a staffing agent to review your experience and discuss what and where you'll be paid.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Accountemps in August 2013.

    Interview

    I was called in for a interview, the person on the phone was very rude. When I came in for my interview, though the hiring manager was ver nice. Simple questions about education and work history. Only downside they expect a lot of your time through the whole job search. They expect weekly updates from you.

    Accounting Clerk Interview

    Interview

    I applied online for an accounting clerk position and I received a call a couple of days later. The phone call was about what I was looking for and scheduled a day for me to come in. It was very short and simple. The day before my in person interview I received an email regarding skills test on A/P, A/R, and excel. They were timed but no time limit and were all multiple choice. I went in the next day and the recruiter and I basically went through my resume and asked about specifics of my situation such as when am I available, desired pay, etc. After the interview he introduced me to another recruiter because they had a job that just came up that they believed would be perfect for me but they never contacted me back about it

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Accountemps (Philadelphia, PA (US)).

    Interview

    Initially I have receive a telephone call from a recruiter for a position which I was clearly unqualified for so. So, she invited me anyways to come the next day. First thing to be expected when walking in is that there will be a good amount of other people there at their location being interviewed as well. First thing I have encountered is a mountain of paper work which needed to be filled and signed. This would take roughly 20 minutes to complete.

    The next thing, I had an interview with the recruiter to go over the typical stuff [Minimum pay, Hours, Going over the resume].

    No offer/assignment of any sort was made.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Accountemps (Hauppauge, NY (US)) in July 2013.

    Interview

    I was scheduled for 11. I arrived 15 minutes early, and the desk attendant had me fill out some professional skills questionnaire on a computer. Then by the time 11 came around, Instead of meeting a person to talk to about accountemps; the attendant gave me a big stack of papers to sign, social security numbers and legal consent forms. I was taken aback by this, and decided this was not what I wanted to do.

    Interview

    Applied online. Got a reply from them after a week or so. Had a interview with them in the morning and during that process there was aot of filling out paper work. They require references which sucks for people with no work experience or internship during college. Didn't do so well but they offered alot of information on how to improve your skill set to better your chances of getting a entry level position.
