    Staffing Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. 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 Questions
    • How do you ensure a positive candidate experience?
      How will you convey feedback to a candidate that is not selected?

    Business Development Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Calgary, AB
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Calgary, AB
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Kelly Services in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Email referral got me the interview and I interviewed with the branch manager for 1 hour, then the Western Canada Business Lead for an additional hour. There was no formal structure to it other than inquiring what kind of business development I've done in the past, what my growth rate was and what I expected the new role to be. Very numbers focused among the interviewees seemed to have gotten the job as I knew BDR life cycles are very short in terms of usefulness to a company.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation Details
    Simple since there is no room to negotiate and Kelly Service is the bargain basement in terms of salary in the market.
