    Business Development Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Harvey Nash Group (Chicago, IL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Very nice. I got to meet the entire team and even the CEO! The best part was that they even supplied some of their marketing materials so I had a great sense of what I was getting into.

    Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Harvey Nash Group (London, England (UK)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Attended an assessment day in central London which comprised of a company presentation, pitching yourself to the group and finally a group debate. There were about 15 candidates in attendance each of whom were from quite different backgrounds. The presentation was fairly boring and just reinforced the companies values. The balloon debate did not really work well as people had chosen such different people.

    Design Manager At DT Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Darmstadt (Germany)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Harvey Nash Group (Darmstadt (Germany)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    A smooth and professional process, I learned more about the role and the company they were hiring for. It was more like a conversation between two professionals - about my professional experience, about the possible roles in company - than "catechizing" and asking common, HR-questions. A very pleasant contact.

    Graduate Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Harvey Nash Group (London, England (UK)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    the interview was, quite simply, embarrassing. there were no questions asked, simply a mundane series of group excersizes. the other people there were just as dull and up their own behinds as the questions being asked. 0/10 would not recommend. although this is a humungous company with excessive history, i feel this process is completely pointless, and i was left with humungous regret for the £8 Oyster card bill I wasted on this.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Harvey Nash Group (London, England (UK)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Three stages. One interview with a consultant, interview with the team and a final presentation. The final stage was a great opportunity to get to know the company better. Very friendly along the different stages. Conversational style to check if there was cultural fit.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Harvey Nash Group (Geneva (Switzerland)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Two interviewes , the first at phone and the second on skype, the third test is a logic test, easy but you need to be fast thinker to pass it. Before sending your cv to some possible employer they need to test you, they are an head hunting society, I think they can be very helpfull, and the continue to follow you also if you don't have the job.

    Trainee Recruitment COnsultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Harvey Nash Group (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It started with 4 of us (candidates) together in a room. The recruiters claimed that a fifth candidate was running late however they never showed up so I've no idea if that was some kinda of strategy thing on their part or if the person didn't show. We then had about 2 minutes were we all described our background in education and employment.

    After this we were handed random CVs from their records with personal details removed, we were required to read the CVs for 3 or 4 minutes. Then the CVs were taken away and another candidate would interview us as though we had become the person in the CV. All 4 of us did this with each other.

    Following this we had to play the balloon dilemma, whereby in advance they informed us to come up with a famous person and think of reasons why they deserve to be saved from a hot air balloon crash. In fairness I'd done this before so knew the idea but it wasn't well explained in the email and other candidates were confused on what we were supposed to do. We would then argue why our person should stay and then round by round vote each other out.

    Following this the gave a 15 min presentation about Harvey Nash. At the end we were told if we were still interested to contact them, which I found odd as any other interview they inform you if you're successful but here we had to follow them up. I was unsuccessful. To be honest I haven't a clue what they look for, we were asked no real questions about our previous work aside from what we volunteered in the introduction.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    Fairly straightforward CV interview process. Most important emphasis was on what my expectations were and what I wanted to get out of the internship. Followed by a presentation on a given question 'Present about Harvey Nash Group' and of course, Q&A. Also, had a few one-to-one interviews with team leaders and directors
