    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lynchburg, VA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kelly Services in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    First received an email requesting a phone interview (about 45 min) with branch manager mainly asking about my background and experience, the following day had an in-person interview (2 hours) talking with branch manager. Super nice, made me feel very comfortable, discussed my background, the job and the business in more detail. By the following week I had a job offer which I accepted. Seems like they will be a great company to work for.

    Interview Questions
    • The usual: please describe your weakness   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Very relaxed. I was called in about a week after interview to discuss salary details and complete paperwork for background check etc. I did not negotiate much since I was pleased with the initial offer. The manager explained how bonuses would factor in as well. It sounds like if you are driven the income potential is there.

    Test Evaluator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I started as a test evaluator and there was no interview. What they called an interview was asking for a copy of a college diploma. They made a copy of it, went over the company rules and expectations then had me do a test on the computer. The test wasn't a pass fail, it was to see which subject one would be strongest to grade in. A start date was given and we were free to go.
