Onsite Recruitment Specialist Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Talent2 in March 2013.
Interview Details – The start of the conversation was very warm and comfortable. As the interview takes place, I realized that there was a huge gap between the interviewer's requirement and what the recruiter has mentioned about the requirement for this role. I was headhunted for this role.
Interview Question – The toughest question was what sourcing methodology do you use to search for candidate. I have mentioned every possible method I know, yet the interviewer was not happy. I was not sure what was her expectation. View Answer
Team Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Talent2 in September 2009.
Interview Details – I was headhunted for the role and the initial communication was informal, starting with a chat after work which suited me as we got to know each other socially. I was in no hurry and a month went by before re-connecting and having another more formal discussion about career drivers and cultural fit. A third interview with a senior manager was arranged before discussing terms with the GM. The final phase was online aptitude and personality testing. The focus of the interviews was cultural fit and it was clear that there were some philosophical synergies. I've rated the interview process as "easy" because the people are easy to connect with, know what they are after and didn't play duscks & drakes. Technically the interviews were thorough and exploratory but this is to be expected from a quasi-search firm.
Interview Question – No really difficult questions were asked - the interview was pretty standard for a recruitment company, e.g how much did you bill? how big was your team? whao are your clients? talk us through your sales plan, difficult customers, conflict in workplace, engagement of employees, drivers, self assessment etc. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – A good offer was made and accepted without a need to negotiate. It was fair and reasonable for the market conditions and in the context of the rem-structure you have to earn your keep in recruitment so the actual basic becomes irrelevant if you are performing (billing).
Recuritment Researcher Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 8 weeks - interviewed at Talent2 in July 2008.
Interview Details – got introduce to the company with a mutual acquaintance, met with the MD twice over a period of 8 weeks could have even been 12 (can't believe). Business picked up and the job was offered to me, i started within a week.
Negotiation Details – don't accept the the first offer, anyways negotiate - especially in the ME
Researcher Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Talent2 in June 2007.
Interview Details – The process is quick. I got refereed by a rec2rec company and then came to see the line manager the very next day. After that I went through 2 more interviews with dotted line report and some other correspondent. It was smooth and the interviewers were quite responsive. Some of them may drill you very very hard though, so prepared for being pushed and dragged around in the interview.
