    Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Michael Page.

    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.

    Interview Details

    Contacted through a mutual acquaintance, went through several phone screenings that were more like conversations, then invited to interview in person. The interview was very casual/ informal, and seemed to be going well enough. Followed up to find that they had passed without explanation.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Michael Page.

    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.

    Recruitment Consultant Interview

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

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Michael Page.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is not for the faint of heart. Was contacted by someone from LinkedIn and I inquired. We had an initial 20 minute phone call and was set up with an interview that next week. The initial interview lasted about 3 hours where I met with 5 people: director, manager and a few of the junior and senior staff of the team. I then was given a caliper test which took about 30 minutes.

    From there, I was asked to come back the following week and was to prepare a presentation. I was there for another 3 hours or so and met with the regional director. I was extended an offer that day.

    Interview Questions
    • Very general sales-like questions. Nothing that was act through me too off. They really want to see if you are going to be a good culture fit and generally fit in with the team.

    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 3 weeksinterviewed at Michael Page in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I initially applied online & heard back fairly quickly (a day later I think) by email to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview was pretty relaxed..basic questions about my experience/education followed by a lot of talk about what the position would entail. I was invited for an in person interview the following week. My interviewer told me that I need to make sure I come prepared with answers to what they may ask me including stock price, how many countries MP is in, as well as make sure I can do sales role plays. He also said my resume was going to be torn apart so I should have an example for each point.The in-person interview was horrible. At first I thought I was doing okay, answering basic questions until the role plays. If you are not prepared (and I thought I was) you will be criticized as to what you're saying wrong. This went on for about an hour. I was invited to come back in for a second interview the next week and was told I was going to be tested on how much I've improved from the first round. Second interview came and it was even worse than the first. I think it's pretty unprofessional to constantly criticize someone who you're interviewing with and MP didn't fail to do that. I was ready to walk out at one point. I met with my initial interviewer and another person during the second round. When it was over I was told there would be a decision that night and I would be informed the same day. Heard nothing back until two days later telling me I was probably not a right fit for Michael Page and the standards they adhere to. A blessing in disguise I'd say since the vibe I got was horrible.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Michael Page in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    Will ask you to come to their office multiple times (3+), very protracted process. Interviews are meaningless: ask you about your background and that is it. The director doesn't care about what you have done or will do, she wants to find out how she can mold you. Don't go in expecting to make a difference... You are just filling a position on a piece paper.

    Reasons for Declining

    Company is a joke. Hours are 7:30am - 8:00pm for 42k... Are you serious??? I understand the recruitment industry is time consuming and difficult but requiring over 12hrs of office time is crazy.... Took a different recruitment position offering more money and less required office hours. LOOK ELSEWHERE IF YOU WANT A LIFE!
