I have been working at Eurostaff Group part-time (more than an year)Pros
I've been here for 2.5 years and have enjoyed it. When the management team and directors at this company recognize ability and a hunger to do well, full support is given to ensure consultants get there. There is a range of close management and coaching whilst on the job and separate training from a dedicated training department.
The earning potential is massive if you do your job well and people are rewarded with dinners/ nights out when targets are hit. It's a very sociable company and it has become more 'free' over the last year with changes in management and directors. Consultants are given the respect to get on with their business more than they used to and it is showing on the sales floor.Cons
Work/life balance takes a hit for the first 8 months, as does earning (if you are coming from a sales job at least). It takes that long to see a financial return but changes to pay structure in recent months is kinder to the new consultant, the company have acknowledged that it's tough for that time and are making it better.Advice to ManagementAdvice

I applied online. The process took a day – interviewed at Eurostaff Group in June 2013.Interview Details
Lengthy process; had to nag the hell out of the recruitment agent for interviews.
Firstly, interviewed with a recruiter who was really easy going and made the interview very simple, was big on praise and made you feel wanted. Standard run through CV- Academic History, Employment, Hobbies. Breezed through that round and was told I had everything it took to succeed in the process.
After a couple of weeks of nagging I managed to secure a secondary interview. I was told this would be similar to the first just with a senior manager. Again, this went well, it was slightly more pressing, he really pushed you about your motivations for the role and whether your characteristics were right for the role.
However, the original recruiter then came, to what I was assuming to show me out the building. He then notified me one of the directors/a co-owner would come through and interview me; I was a bit startled at this point and felt this was slightly unfair to spring onto someone with no preparation. The director came through and was highly obnoxious; I do not want to put people off because this felt like a great place to work and everyone else was very friendly. BUT, he did not put me at ease at all, he started by slating the university I attended and noted my degree was worth 'very little' to him; despite holding a First Class Degree. He then said I was too much of a risk as I had no prior work experience, despite being told by the prior interviewers this was not much of an issue as long as you have the key competencies expected.
As you may have guessed, I was not offered a role, but after the interview with the director I was massively put off; I don't think he even shook my hand or thanked me for coming in. I was notified via email, and was told if I got '6 months of work experience' to come back to them.Interview Questions
