    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at PageGroup 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

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at PageGroup in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    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.
