Test Evaluator Interview

Anonymous Employee

Interviewed at Kelly Services

Interview Details I started as a test evaluator and there was no interview. What they called an interview was asking for a copy of a college diploma. They made a copy of it, went over the company rules and expectations then had me do a test on the computer. The test wasn't a pass fail, it was to see which subject one would be strongest to grade in. A start date was given and we were free to go.

Interview Question – They didn't ask anything   Answer Question

Bilingual Receptionist Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Northlake, IL (US)

I applied through a staffing agency - interviewed at Kelly Services in April 2013.

Interview Details Horrible, Managers never have time for them. They ask the applicant to fill out a 3 question questionnaire and do not look at it. They do keep their eyes on the 30 question questionnaire that they are told to fill out by H.R. and never look at the candidate because they are filling out the form even when they themselves feel some questions are useless. Even with 22yrs of Experience of the H.R. manager asks EVERY question on the form and fills it out in your presence.

Interview Question – You where a manager before what did you teach your assistant with regards to interviewing? (like she did not know how to interview?)   View Answer
