Staffing Consultant Interview

Staffing Consultant

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Kelly Services.

Interview Details You will be probed to see if you are professional, have marketing skills and the composure to tackle not so pleasant candidates. Its a quick interview, they will check to see if you have the acumen to interview someone and take independent decision. Previous experience is an asset but you can also get your foot in the door with no previous experience provided you are vibrant and professional. The job could get stressful if you do not meet your targets. I got interviewed and within a week was asked to join them. Turn around time was impressive

Interview Question – How do you ensure a positive candidate experience?
How will you convey feedback to a candidate that is not selected?
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Simple and quick. There are no benefits.

Senior Staffing Supervisor Interview

Anonymous Employee
Lynchburg, VA (US)

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Kelly Services in April 2014.

Interview Details First received an email requesting a phone interview (about 45 min) with branch manager mainly asking about my background and experience, the following day had an in-person interview (2 hours) talking with branch manager. Super nice, made me feel very comfortable, discussed my background, the job and the business in more detail. By the following week I had a job offer which I accepted. Seems like they will be a great company to work for.

Interview Question – The usual: please describe your weakness   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Very relaxed. I was called in about a week after interview to discuss salary details and complete paperwork for background check etc. I did not negotiate much since I was pleased with the initial offer. The manager explained how bonuses would factor in as well. It sounds like if you are driven the income potential is there.
