Very Easy Interview

Administrative Assistant Interview

Administrative Assistant
Richland, WA (US)

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Accountemps in June 2010.

Interview Details I received a call from Accountemps describing the short-term temporary Administrative Assistant assignment asking if I would like to interview the next day. I interviewed and the company hired me asking if I could start the next day. It was one of the best interview and hiring experiences I have had!

Interview Question – I cannot remember any difficult or unexpected question. It was a quick interview since the two interviewees had reviewed and discussed my resume and experience with Accountemps.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation since Accountemps sets an hourly rate and the company agrees.

Accountant Interview

Accountant
Cambridge, MA (US)

I applied through a staffing agency - interviewed at Accountemps in June 2012.

Interview Details 1:1 interview, I was surprised that I did not get any skills test, nor were I told that I would have to take one before the interview. The interview is easy, they just want to know about your background and they take notes on your resume. When I asked them if they have any jobs opening at this time, they said no, which was different from what I heard from the voice mail. It raised my doubt that they just want to add you into their candidate pool, plus, I never heard from my interviewer anymore after that, though I have tried to call them many times.

Accounting Clerk Interview

Accounting Clerk

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Accountemps in June 2011.

Interview Details Recruiter calls if sees potential hire/ contract, the interview is easy, both trying to fit each other needs. Recruiter finds out what is that you are looking for and offers what he/ she has available. Once both satisfied with selection, draft the contract. Relax and enjoy conversation. They offer positions on all types of levels. The down side is that the compensation is close to minimum wage. However, you will be getting the experience.

Financial Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Parsippany, NJ (US)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Accountemps in March 2012.

Interview Details 2 weeks ago I received a call from Accountemp asking me to have an interview with them.
I waited 2 hours before interviewed by one recruiter, they also kept a copy of my identity, with SSN exposured to them. The receptionist also asked me to do a stupid survey on their computer, which also need lots of personal information including SSN, home address, phone The survey focused on the lay-off insurance you've ever got, nothing to do with the job application!
The recruiter chatted with me for 30 minites without touching the professional accounting experience. She said that the company will hire me as a permanent employee, they will provide basic salary, quarterly bonus, overtime pay, insurance. That all sounds good but she did not even signed a contract with me! What they promised were totally bullshitting.
I have never heard from them again after I stepped out their office! But they kept all my personal information. The experience with this company is really bad, I won't believe that an interview with recruiter will give me a job.
