Recruitment Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hays (New York, NY).

Interview

Hays first reached out to me with a phone screening through one of their internal recruiters. I then was asked to join them for an in-person interview in their New York City office. I ended up going on 4 in person. What bothered me about the process was that after every meeting the internal recruiter took a week to get back to me telling me I had yet another interview. After my final interview I just never heard back from them. Nothing. I can maybe understand this if it is only after the phone screening but after four interviews, reach out and let me know I did not receive the position. Leaving an interviewer hanging with no information about what is possibly the least professional thing an employer can do. Overall the interview process helped sharpen my interview skills, but I was a little displeased to receive no feedback after a lengthy interview process and many hours commuted.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Hays in April 2017.

    Interview

    4 rounds of interviews for such an entry level role.
    It feels like you are applying for a Goldmansac career and gotten accepted and ended up in a data entry career. Too much for a company like them to make such many interviews for a small role. If you are keen for it, or are into force selling... yes, this will be a perfect career path for you...

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hays (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in July 2019.

    Interview

    4 stages to the process. 1 - phone interview. 2 - in person interview with two senior managers. 3 - Sales assessment centre. 4 - Final round interview. Very lengthy and confusing process and gives you an insight into what it is like as a recruiter. Some of the people I interacted with were lovely, others not so much.
