    IT Helpdesk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Peoria, IL (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Peoria, IL (US)
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    No specific job interview was held with the client. The job description information was vague and the Staffing Specialist minimized my background to justify the poor rate The Staffing Specialist presented the rate as a take it or leave it situation and blamed the client for the low rate.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    No, opportunity to negotiate. I told the Staffing Specialist that the rate was too late I provided my salary history to present what my previous rates had been. There was no concern that I needed to be the beneficiary of the salary that my education and work experiences could bring. Kelly Services Staffing Specialist are lowdown and greedy. They exploited the fact that I was unemployed and had not been able to secure a steady IT position.
