    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Adecco (Cheltenham, England (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Consisted of a Behavioural interview questions, was very fast paced. I enjoyed meeting the interviewers and they were really friendly. However was very disappointed that after the interview I received no further communication to let me know whether I was successful or unsuccessful, even though they said they would be in touch. Then when I emailed to ask for an update and feedback, again I didn't receive a response. I won't be applying or using Adecco again in the future.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Adecco.

    Interview

    Being in recruitment myself I used a recruitment agency when searching for a new role to save myself time. My consultant at Adecco got me an interview for a position at another company. I was made to come into the Adecco office which was far away to register also, which I know from being in recruitment myself it was not needed, documents required e.g. Passport and registration form could have been emailed. I attended my interview with said company and was told I would hear back from my recruitment consultant that afternoon with an answer. I never received any feedback or call from my consultant at Adecco to let me know I hadn't got the job or why. Appalling! I then received a call months later from them to update and see if I was still looking for work. Luckily no, I had found myself a new job, however if I was still looking I certainly wouldn't use Adecco!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Adecco (Belfast, Northern Ireland (UK)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The company I was based in was very good, the people I worked with with also very nice. Adecco did not interview me, the interview process was pretty laid back, they asked about my work and just basically felt me out to see what sort of person I was.

    Business Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Adecco (London, England (UK)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    at this stage I can say I don't like Recruitment Agency in general like Adecco, I was called for an interview for a temp position for an oil and gas company , the initial interview was just normal and nothing so special to say, then I was called for an interview by the hiring manager and have to report to their office in Canary Wharf ,I was told to submit or show my original documents and signed a form.
    after almost an hour interview by the hiring manager I expect a reply whatever the outcome of my application ,after a week I didn't get a reply nor an update and if ever I have to call (Adecco) office and looking for the recruitment officer in charge of my application but I was not able to get hold of her and other staff were telling me that I should get a message but nothing at all. I believe the position is doesn't really exist or already filled up and just had me for the interview so as to appear the position is open and the company really conduct a hiring process for job. so not reply no update of the outcome as promise.

    Rang the company after seeing a generic advert on a job-seekers site. Sent off C.V via email and a few days later I received a call asking me to the to the office and bring with me standard documents. An informal and extremely simple interview followed.

    Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Birmingham, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Adecco (Birmingham, England (UK)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I was invited to attend a group interview that would last approximately 3 hours.
    I was informed that we would be given scenarios and we would have to act as if it was an everyday task - we would then be individually interviewed. The group I attended consisted of 6 males; only 2 of us had recruitment experience (1 being myself). We were put into a presentation room and introduced to the line managers of each department before being split into 2 groups of 3.
     The group of 3 sit in a room and each candidate would have one manager sitting opposite. There are 4 scenarios on a piece of paper and each candidate gets choose one (leaving one spare). The manager would pretend to be the customer and you would pretend to be an employee of Adecco. One example is that you have a company that is on your books that you regularly provide employees to. The company finds a candidate but goes through another recruitment provider. You call the company to check to see if everything is OK with the terms of your agreement/contract. Another example is that you have been providing temporary workers to a company but the last employee refused to go back to them. You have now just had a call from the company to say that the replacement worker has also failed to show up to work. You receive a call from the company who want to complain. Once each of the candidates has completed their scenario, you have to choose another scenario from the piece of paper - so in total you complete 2 scenarios. You will be assessed by all the line managers in the room (3 in my one). Of which they will then leave the room and join the other line managers to discuss what happened in the scenario task. You will then be interviewed individually (if they want to interview you - **this is something that isn't told prior to attending the "interview"**)

    Summer Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Adecco.

    Interview

    The position was a part of a bit of a marketing campaign - every country globally was assigned to open up a few places. But some of the things above may still apply in other settings.

    Quite specific to the challenge, I believe, was the original submission of applications. You filled in a form with basic biographical data (including work experience and education), which was then followed by making a 30s video recording explaining why the job should go to you. After that there was a phase where people (anyone, including your own friends) could vote on your application online. The top in terms of votes were guaranteed a phone interview.

    The phone interview asked some further information on biographical info, and then some basic motivations questions.

    I was then invited to a group interview, where there were plenty of questions about both competency, motivations and how we would approach a client in a specific setting. These questions were all the kind of questions you'd expect to get at a personal interview, but you were now expected to answer them in front of the other top candidates, which can be a little unnerving if you're not used to it.

    The next day all three of us got our replies.
