    Pros

    The people and the atmosphere and the incentives like trip to Vegas and things like that!
    It was a really positive place to work, the office is in an amazing location in Soho and I had a great boss!
    I also really liked the training and the support team is excellent.

    Cons

    Recruitment is generally a challenging job especially when you are just finding candidates all day so maybe needed some help with motivation sometimes.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at First Point Group in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went through a graduate recruitment agency called 'Enabling Change' and so the first step was attending an assessment day set up by them, after attending that i was set up with an interview with the 'First point group'.

    My first interview was with one of the team leaders; it was quite informal and he was very friendly. The average interview questions were asked aiming find out my motivations for starting a career in recruitment and information on my background and previous jobs. After this, which lasted around 30 minutes, i sat with a member of the team on the office floor and he gave me an in depth overview of what i would be doing if i joined their company, this was very informative and i learnt a lot about the recruitment process. I then had a second interview with an MD which was very similar to the first, informal and biographical.

    After this first round of interviews i was called back to the second stage where i met with another two people who again were very friendly. First was an interview with the other MD which again was rather informal and i think the objective was to tell me a bit more about the business. Then finally i had another interview with a different team leader who asked me similar questions and told me about his experiences of the recruitment industry. All in all a positive experience.
