Internal Audit Interview

Internal Audit

I applied through a recruiter and 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.

Interview Question – (1) Proudest moment in my career and (2) what have I been told I need to improve in my current review processes at my current employer.   Answer Question

Recruiting Manager Interview

Recruiting Manager

I interviewed at Kelly Services in October 2013.

Interview Details Interview with HR and Hiring Manager on the phone then in person. Straight forward, behavioral questions and other about my experience. They took the time to explain the role and the expectations as well as the company culture. Seems like a good place to work.

Interview Question – As long as you "know your stuff" and are prepared to explain what and how, interview is smooth.   Answer Question

Easy Interview

Temporary Employee Interview

Temporary Employee
Saint Peters, MO (US)

I applied 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 Question – 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.
