    IT Helpdesk Interview

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

    I interviewed 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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cartersville, GA (US)
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Kelly Services in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was a little taxing, and nothing like with other At home positions I have had with other companies. I had to drive 30 minutes to one of their offices to fill out the paperwork. The phone interview was simple there was nothing really spectacular about it. It was a simple phone interview.

    Interview Questions
    • There really wasn't one, it was standard and pretty much common sense. I suppose the most difficult question is how would you handle a difficult customer?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There really is no negotiation beyond the hours you work, and even then that was very limited.

    Internal Audit Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Kelly Services.

    Interview Details

    I used a recruiter to apply for this position. The company bypassed the phone interview at first but when I had no time to go in the same week they conducted a phone interview anyway. The in person interview went well and I met with multiple managers within the Internal Audit group. It was a comfortable, friendly environment where we got to know each other and I was told what to expect at the company.

    Temporary Employee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Saint Peters, MO (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Peters, MO (US)
    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person - interviewed at Kelly Services in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Getting hired was super easy. They"ll hire anyone who doesn't lie on their application and can pas a single drug test before starting work. They make you do a couple tests that are very simple to determine if you can "spot differences" and do simple simple math. Although overall most everything is just filling out your personal information.

    Interview Questions
    • there were no questions asked by anyone in the "interview" process. Only lots of different papers to fill out the biggest thing they ask of you is every address you've ever lived at in the past 7 years and that's only for background checks, BUT even if your're on probation, EMASS, etc... they'll still give you a job. Its a good work opportunity if you can use a steady 40 hour a week pay and can show up to work ALL the time.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    after filling out the application they called and have me a start date and gave me 2 weeks to obtain the proper work supplies i needed (steel toed shoes & a Kelly shirt) they even gave me safety glasses and a mug for water while I worked on my first day.
