    I have been working at Montash full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Completing 3 years’ service this summer I am pleased to state I have had an abundance of support and patient nurturing from my direct manager. Having not done a deal for my 1st 8 months it became very demotivating to run through the daily slog of tasks and calls constantly questioning myself at every comer having witnessed many of my colleagues surpass me. I was almost ready to give up had it not been for the constant reassurance, training support and belief in me that I at times doubted from my team and manager A big thank you to my manager who was right! I did it and am now in a senior position and actually one of the larger contributors to the business. A challenging but extremely rewarding journey with an abundance of self and career development at all levels alongside great memories, fun times and a structured path help achieve my personal goals.

    Cons

    The journey of a recruitment consultant is challenging, which requires huge level of self-commitment and determination. Sometime difficult to see past the challenges of the role and manage direct feedback from peers and management.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for the support and believing in me when perhaps at times I didn't.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Montash (London, England (UK)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I arrived on time and kept me waiting for a good 15-20 minutes, with no excuse why? Then the interviewer came in, it felt more like an interrogation than an interview. She was very brash with her tactics, which is a complete contradiction of what a recruitment consultant should be, as they should have an approachable and friendly personality. She never once asked me why Montash?Also she told me to get a telesales role, which completely contradicts the point of their training academy, as what is the point of offering such an academy, if not to learn from them first hand. Furthermore, she told me that a recruiter is glorified sales role, which it isn't as it's not just selling one product over and over again or cold calling the whole time, but also sourcing candidates and clients, preparing them for interviews as well and building relationships. Completely avoid!!!
