    Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at PageGroup.

    Interview Details

    After submitting online application, was contacted via phone with a Talent Acquisition Specialist who "vetted" me before inviting me to come in for an in-person interview. During that meeting I met with the Talent Acquisition Specialist as well as one of the department managers. I was invited to come back and meet with two other higher level executives in addition to the two I had already previously met. I was then never followed up with, despite trying to get in touch with the Talent Acquisition Specialist.

    Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at PageGroup.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted the next day for a phone interview. The woman was very nice and professional and the interview took about ten minutes. I came in later that week for an in person interview in New York. I met with two people. The first was nice and professional but the man I met with was not. He spent most of the time telling me personal stories rather than asking about myself. I was also interviewing at other recruitment agencies at the time, and he was asking me in depth questions about their hiring process, their compensation and how they did deals. It was very uncomfortable since he early was more interested in scoping out the competition than interviewing me. I then took an online assessment which lasted about 30 minutes.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at PageGroup.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter. We spoke on the phone a few times. They had me come into the office and interview with 4 or 5 different people. There were no hard questions. It was a very relaxed interview. I never heard back to hear if I got the position or not even thought I followed up after the interview.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at PageGroup.

    Interview Details

    Through a friend at the company, never applied he just wanted me to meet his boss. I was surprisingly interviewed.The gentleman I met with was stuck up. Had no knowledge of the educational system in the United States. He was from the United Kingdom. Purposely tried being rude and non welcoming. The position does not worth that experience.

    Final interview with Sr. Director that was deep -- but left with no questions unanswered

    Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at PageGroup in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was intense and unproffesional. It started out great. I met 4 people my first day, who I really liked. I was asked to take a test that would assess my natural sales ability. I passed and when I came back I was "prepped" to meet senior level management. I did role plays and was told to prove how much I wanted the position. The entire experience changed when I met with one of the directors. I was asked personal information that made me very uncomfortable. I was prepared to answer typical interview questions but the interviewer kept asking me about my personal motivations and my family's background. I was asked to come back a third time to meet more people and "convince" the director/ manager that I wanted the job. It took about a month. It's all about selling yourself and not about skill set at all - they will hire anyone who passes the assessment test.

    The entire process left a bad taste in my mouth. It did not seem like the type of place I would ever be comfortable at.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at PageGroup.

    Interview Details

    Interview process begins with a phone call and then they progress to face to face interviews. Make sure you are able to ask questions and sell back to whatever they are trying to get you to sell. The final step is a meeting with the North American CEO. Honestly, this place is brutal so don't even go on an interview and waste your time.

    Recruiter-- Entry Level Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at PageGroup in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through a posting on a job board. I was then contacted by a recruiter who sent me a link to a online questionnaire. After this, I had a skype interview that felt like it went very well with a member from the branch at which I was applying to. A couple of hours later, the recruiter called me back to set up an in-person in the office. Overall, very positive experience. Everyone I spoke with was very kind and informative. Also, the recruiter was excellent at keeping up with communicating and not keeping me waiting to hear about the next steps. She was also very helpful with tips on what the company is looking for.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at PageGroup in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had an on campus interview that was very rushed and it felt like the interviewer did not really care that I was interested in the position. He asked me obscure and seemingly pointless questions while ignoring my entire work history. He then asked me to come to New York (not close locations wise) for a hiring day where they are interviewing a mass of people at a fair - also felt like I would just be a number in their organization.
