    Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Harnham in November 2017.

    Interview

    I submitted by resume online. I then received a call from an internal recruiter who also sent an email. We had a five minute screening call, where we arranged a time to have a thirty minute interview. He pretty much told me what he was going to ask me so it was very easy to prepare. After the thirty minute interview I withdrew from the process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Harnham in April 2017.

    Interview

    Several calls with different recruiters from the same company. It is clear that information is not shared between different employees. It is like everyone starts from scratch. The interview is long but mostly pointless, consisting mostly from canned questions. It seems like most positions they advertise are designed to build up a data pool with applicants for their database, not for real positions.

    Interview

    The inteview itself was pretty standard, however, this company screams amateur. The trial day is a great concept but it exposed me to the deceptive techniques this company uses to get their foot in the door with new clients. I literally witnessed a recruiter lie about how they obtained a potential clients contact details;they had actually used a 3rd party applications that finds the personal contact details associated with a linkedin profile(which by the way is against GDPR laws). I also witnessed a recruiter emailing people at one of their target companies at random; no real research about who is the best person to contact and then claimed to have a pool of candidates on their database ready to interview , again a lie. Very basic applicant tracking system, boiler room environment.
    All in all, the interview process was very telling and i guess it’s necessary to experience to know if you’re willing to operate in a sales role with very basic and amateur techniques.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Harnham in February 2009.

    Interview

    The interview process involved a face to face interview with two senior consultants from Harnham over dinner. The process was pleasant and enabled us to discuss the company and its growth plans at length. This was followed up by a telephone conversation at a later date to discuss the finer details and then a team meeting.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Harnham.

    Interview

    I applied directly online; I was given a call back and had some brief questioning over the phone, which led to a skype interview, which led to an interview at their company office with the Senior Partner. Their internal recruiter kept in touch and gave feedback throughout the process. This lasted about a week from submission of application to the second round of interviews.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Harnham (Wimbledon, England (UK)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Harnham called up really soon after I had applied online. A telephone interview was conducted. Unfortunately, I felt I had to really try to get word in edge ways as the internal recruiter talked so much about the job and herself, it didn't feel like I was being interviewed.
