    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PageGroup (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at PageGroup (Boston, MA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    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

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at PageGroup (London, England (UK)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I initially contacted my Consultant about roles they were recruiting for after a discussion I was asked if I wanted to look at working with MP. I was then set up for an initial interview with my new manager which was about me and what I wanted to achieve but also about what I wanted from a company, it was a good opportunity for me to gain insight into the company too. I then had an interview with an associate director and regional director which was a little more intense with questions that were a lot more to the point and put me on the spot, a few were personal, however to be a consultant you will be put on the spot so this, if anything, was good practice.

    I was then invited back in for a review of a personality in sales test review and 2 role plays one was sales based and one recruitment, my advice would be to really take the criticism on board and think outside of the box with creativity and show that you are coachable.

    The final stage was to meet with the MD of UK Sales which was a discussion around me as a person with some really in depth questioning around me personally, which I enjoyed, working at a few companies where people haven't really understood me as a person this was great to see someone looking to see what drives and motivates me from my history and me today.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PageGroup in November 2012.

    Interview

    in my case it was a whole day interview with several managers. Each manager spent with me ca 1 hr, and all together I have had ca 6 interview in that day.
    It was hard, on the other hand I understand that it was necessary. Nevertheless, I pass the interview, and was very motivated for the job, the working atmosphere in the office was horrible. 1m2 of working space is simply toooo small. 6 people working basically on 1 table - horrible.

    Interview Questions

    • After lunch break: you were now on lunch with couple of your potential colleagues. What can you tell me about each one of them? Who they are, what they do, where they come from, what kind of workers are they? what kind of working style they do have? are they successful in their work...?? etc..   Answer Question
