    Digital/Social 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 4 daysinterviewed at PageGroup in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn. We set up a phone interview, during which she was completely rude: everything was about the way she wanted to do things: my first two questions were "What company is this position for?" and "What is the salary range for this role?" and she dodged both, attempting to turn around the questions on me. Don't answer questions with questions.

    Recruiter seemed to believe she was in control of the conversation, and needs to grow a little: you reached out to me, I didn't apply for the job. If you can't provide basic info about the job without hearing all about my experience first - you reached out to me, and identified me as qualified, remember? - then don't waste people's time.

    Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at PageGroup.

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at PageGroup.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter. We spoke on the phone a few times. They had me come into the office and interview with 4 or 5 different people. There were no hard questions. It was a very relaxed interview. I never heard back to hear if I got the position or not even thought I followed up after the interview.

    Interview Details

    Through a friend at the company, never applied he just wanted me to meet his boss. I was surprisingly interviewed.The gentleman I met with was stuck up. Had no knowledge of the educational system in the United States. He was from the United Kingdom. Purposely tried being rude and non welcoming. The position does not worth that experience.

    Human Resources Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I applied online and the process takes 4 days. Interviewed at Micheal Page in May 2014.
    Recruiter reach out right next week after I apply online. One Phone interview and set up with an in person interview. I think in person interview is kind of extra steps for busy professionals.

    Interview Questions
    • Typical interview asking my current experience related to position. Then request an in person interview in their local office. The recruiter does not show up at that point. Because it's close to off hours and there would be traffic, I gave recruiter a time range when i get there the day before. The recruiter seems not care much. He is not at office yet when I get to the site. But their manager meets me and get brief review of my exp. The manager is nice and ask me to prepare a brief letter of how my exp fit for the position. Still expect response from them.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at PageGroup.

    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.
