    Easy Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Morgan McKinley (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I had a brief phone call from a recruiter that wanted to meet me in their Dublin Office. I was living there at the time so that was fine. After that I had a screening call with Michelle O' Donahue. Then I met with Michelle who was lovely and explained possible roles that I may be suitable for to me. She's a very busy person so her time is valuable. I then had a final interview in Cork.

    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan McKinley (Cork (Ireland)).

    Interview

    Intial chat and phone screening leading on to a very long interview to include a presentation. 3 person panel. Interview lasted nearly 90 minutes. Questioning was very intense and challenging. Presentation as being delivered attracted more questions. Seems like a good place for starters willing to learn in recruitment however salary is also very basic.

    Research Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Morgan McKinley (London, England (UK)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Really thorough but very relaxed. No competency based questions throughout the 3 stages I did (phone, 2 face to face interviews).

    3rd stage was to present my business plan to the UK MD - be warned if you don't agree with his opinion he takes it in the worse way so back up your stuff

    Hiring Manger was a very nice and relaxed man

    It all went downhill after the final stage - after told I was getting an offer over the phone about 3 days later - it took 3 re negotiations on salary even though this was a newly created position and told at the beginning the 'budget was there to pay what we need.'

    After being offered by the hiring manager over the phone as 'something in the high 30s' with some budge I held out for a bit more. To my surprise the UK MD called me and offered me the exact same thing, I gave him my thoughts and he said he needs to re think the number. I then received a text message from the UK MD on a Saturday morning saying 'lets call it quits'.

    As an Associate Consultant, Consultant Or Managing Consultant I am sure this place would be a great place to work as processes, structures and clear career path have long been cemented within the roots of the MM business. However, I am not entirely sure they know what they want regarding the position above

    Their candidate management at offer stage was SO bad I wouldn't have joined if they managed to get the extra money I needed. Still to this day, 2 weeks after the final stage, I haven't received any feedback to why they called ' it quits.'

    Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Morgan McKinley in September 2017.

    Interview

    Long winded process, telephone, face to face x3 rounds various managers. Went through all the stages then heard nothing back from them. They talk a lot about candidate experience but can’t let people know either way good or not that’s part of recruitment having to have them difficult conversations. Also think they have preference towards degree educated individuals.
