How to Choose a Recruiting Agency: Interview Process

December 20, 2018

If you’ve never worked with a staffing or recruiting agency before,  it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the variety of services and work placements, as well as the jargon many recruiters and agencies use. Although you don’t need to be an expert, there are a few things you should know to help differentiate between agencies and find someone who will serve your individual needs.


Interview Process:

What to know:
It’s important to understand how a recruiter approaches the screening process for new candidates. Find out more about the number and style of interviews, pre-employment screens, and any sort of formalized testing that you will need to complete before the client company selects a candidate.

What to ask:

  • How many interviews should I expect?  What form will they take?
  • If relevant to your candidacy, ask if they test for marijuana.
  • What sort of criminal, financial, or driving history would disqualify me?
