    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at OfficeTeam.

    Interview

    Easy interview process, if you can get one. Team can be helpful with editing resume and prepping for further interview questions on a per company basis. But the trick is getting someone to call you/return your call in the first place.

    No Offer

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at OfficeTeam.

    Interview

    There was a brief phone interview and then a 1:1 interview at their office. When I arrived at the office for my interview, I had to take a questionnaire on the computer. I also gave them my 2 forms of identification. I was given a stack of paperwork to fill out and signed some of the documents. The recruiter came out and greeted me and we proceeded to the interview. It was a fairly quick process.

    Temp Employee Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at OfficeTeam (Santa Clara, CA (US)) in August 2013.

    Interview

    I filled out an online application, and mentioned in my application that I would like to be in touch with the Santa Clara branch office. I didn't hear anything within the first 24 hours, so I called the branch office directly to confirm that they received my materials. Turns out they had, and from my phone call they were able to arrange an onsite visit the next day.

    My onsite visit was very straightforward -- I just filled out the legal hiring paperwork and spoke with Kim Casey (the branch manager) about my past work experience and where I wanted to be placed in the future. No tricks, nothing scary. Paperwork took about 10 minutes, and the onsite meeting with Kim took about 25. Kim was warm and friendly throughout.

    It took 3.5 weeks before I was placed on my first assignment, but Kim made an effort to place me in a location that matched my personality. I've been consistently and happily placed since then, so I can't complain!

    Two quick tips if you're planning to join as a temp. -- be persistent, and be patient. Make sure OfficeTeam knows you exist (two calls a week is appropriate when you're starting out), but don't panic if you don't hear back right away.
