    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Michael Page.

    Interview Details

    Extremely long process, well over 2 month process for a basic entry level position. Over 10 hours of in-person interviews, which was fine but did not result in an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • They really want great sales people, but the type they can train. I was excited to do the process, but by the end I was discouraged about the lack of confidence I felt.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Michael Page in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Met informally with a person in 1 practice then was referred to a consultant in a practice consistent with my background. Made it to the next round, interviewed with 3 people, a Managing Director, a manager, and a consultant. Very informal and disorganized process. I was never given a job description. I was told to expect a 45 min to 1 hr. group interview in the final round and instead was kept for over 2 hours meeting with 3 different people. I will not say anything derogratory, except to say that the comments on the job review page about the managers being rude, etc appear to be true based on my impression and experience

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Michael Page in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    Met with 3 people the first day. Basically try to put you in pressure situations to see how you think on the go. Mostly straight forward, ask you how you would bring in business, mostly seeing if you can think the way they do. Second round is same, 1 to w people.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Michael Page in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview process to join Michael Page was fairly robust, it gave the candidate the opportunity to meet with peers and different levels of management throughout the business in order to gain a broad perspective of the business as a whole and on a local level. Although in a formal setting (and conservative business attire is best advised) the one on one meetings (there were several) were not structured and were allowed to flow freely. My advice here would be not to fall into the trap of over familiarity and make sure to sell yourself professionally and be clear and concise on what you have achieved to date and how this will benefit the business (there is a balancing act to that though... you'll need to get enough of your personality through as well!)

    Negotiation Details
    Michael Page are honest and fair and take many things into consideration when tabling an offer. It is likely to be toward the top end of what you are considered to be worth, so before getting deep into negotiation consider how much you want the role and how much you could stand to earn in bonus if you are the right person for the role... you push too hard they'll get cold feet and wonder if you really have the ability to make good commission
