    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Robert Walters in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Well there were too many phone interviews (2) and 3 face to face , way to much in my opinion and the hiring process took over a month, and this was just to inform that there might be an opening job but needed prior intern with them before offering a job

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Robert Walters.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process was very long. There was the phone screening process, and then several one-to-one interviews with the MD, AD and several other Recruitment Consultants (who you may not even work with). Overall, a long interview process and it was only until I had informed them of other interviews and potential offers, then was the pace stepped up.

    Contacted by managing director to come in for an interview. Had 1:1 interviews with Managing Directer and Team managers. I was asked about all employment history and how I could utilise them skills in recruitment. Also asked why I wanted the career in the recruitment industry. They also gave me an introduction to Robert Walter's culture and values.

    The process took 2 days - interviewed at Robert Walters in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    It takes quite long but it definitely felt very sincere as though they were truly trying to get to know me and understand me, rather than going straight into competency questions. They ask a lot of general questions to better get a sense of why you would like to work for the company and what other plans/career options you have in mind. They also warn you of the downs you might face in the job. In general, I felt very comfortable and I could feel the sincerity in their hiring process.
