    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Robert Walters.

    Interview Details

    Interview involved a rotation of 3 cycles, each a 1 one 1 interview with the head of the company. Asked about experience, why this company, unique position of Robert Walters in SF vs other cities, SF specialties and trends in business hiring, 3rd party hiring/recruiting, etc. There were some redundant questions about applying resume abilities to hiring.

    Reasons for Declining

    intern responsibilities were pretty rudimentary and basic, didn't feel I would learn a lot and gain a lot of experience

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Robert Walters.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process was very long. There was the phone screening process, and then several one-to-one interviews with the MD, AD and several other Recruitment Consultants (who you may not even work with). Overall, a long interview process and it was only until I had informed them of other interviews and potential offers, then was the pace stepped up.
