    Positive Outlook
    Positive Outlook


    A very sociable office in which to work. Management keep a close eye on your progress without micromanaging. The graduate recruitment consultant route gives you an opportunity to learn the role by acting as a support member for one of the recruitment teams. Once you show promise and capability in this initial role, promotion onto a sales desk can be very prompt, thus making it a meritocracy.


    I have no personal 'cons' at the moment, other than training could perhaps be a little more structured.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of what is taught is word of mouth. Benefits may be had from a more prescribed training protocol.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Maxxima (Hoxton, England (UK)) in May 2015.


    Assessment day at a local hotel.
    Several group presentations, mental arithmetic maths test, introductory speech, one minute pitch, formal interview.
    Warm and friendly atmosphere, plenty of opportunity to shine. Definitely a better way of hiring than a series of straight formal interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • Several interviews throughout the day including a one minute pitch to the board. There was also a very simple maths test using rounding skills and mental arithmetic.   1 Answer
