Received no form of training was called one or twice a day for extra shifts, also had to sign a "test" stating i had finished safety training

Staffing Consultant Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
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.
Help Desk Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Kelly Services.
Interview Details I applied online for a help desk position and got a call back after a couple days. Had a phone interview which consisted of a few basic questions. Had to do an online skills test. They had me fill out a bunch of forms which took a little time but it wasn't too bad.
Interview Question – What three words would you use to describe yourself? Answer Question
Temporary Recruiter Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Kelly Services in August 2011.
Interview Details I was called into meet with the branch manager very soon after submitting my resume. They were looking for a recruiter to help one of their clients recruit a couple hundred people in a few months. The interview was very straightforward and the manager was mainly interested in my experience as a recruiter. It was about 20-25 minutes long. At the end he took my references and said he would be in touch either way. He called a couple days later and explained that the client was on holidays and someone would get back to me the following week. I was never contacted again. This is the second time I have had an interview with Kelly Services and was promised a call back and never received one. The interviewers are always very nice, but obviously too busy to make callbacks.
Interview Question – What was your ratio of applicants to hires? Answer Question
