    Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Colchester, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Manpower UK (Colchester, England (UK)) in December 2012.

    Interview

    The process followed a fairly typical standard process of a more basic 1:1 motivational type interview, online skills/personality tests and a second more sales/skills focused 1:1 interview. Much of the first interview was based on selling the opportunity and though it wasn't particularly candid or tailored they were keen to stress career opportunity and commission structures.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing a-typical, experienced hires will face a focus on previous billings and they are clear that a sales focus is the most important aspect of the role.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Personality fit with branch manager.

    Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Manpower UK (London, England (UK)) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Same as any recruitment agency, initial telephone conversation, followed by formal interview then another formal interview with area manager. Left me waiting a for 3 weeks to find out if I had the job, only took the job as there was no others out there due to the global depression we are currently in.

    Negotiation

    Will not negotiate or give a livable wage, £22000 in London is on the breadline, stay away from Manpower like you would the plague. Unrealistic threshold has to be hit before getting any commission, regardless of making them £75000 profit last year I got just over £1000 for all my efforts.
