    Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Robert Half (Birmingham, England (UK)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Assessment day + Interview at the end.

    Around a month or so ago, I was invited to attend an assessment day after a recent application to them as a Recruitment Consultant. The assessment day itself there was relatively easy and relaxed (to a degree; excluding two higher ranked employees that made it obvious every move of yours was being watched). I eventually progressed to the last stage of the day which involved an interview; three people from this day were not as they were told they were unsuccessful and I imagine it was fairly unceremonious. The interview was very much centered on my CV and some questions on why I want to work there. This seemed OK to me and I was fairly confident asking their questions as it was all fairly natural. In all, I felt I did good enough to be selected for a second interview at least. I did tell the interviewer afterwards that I had a holiday the next week and thus assumed I would hear back from them either before hand or after I come back. Did I receive an email or phone call? No. Not one. They clearly considered me good enough to be put forward for the interview stages so why would I not at least be told I was unsuccessful? I find this absence of contact extremely unprofessional, even more unbelievable considering how "big" this company claims to be. Nurturing relationships between themselves and people is their game but they seem to forget keeping contact altogether with the people who want to work with them. Highly unprofessional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Robert Half (London, England (UK)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Very efficient and quick, took about a week. I had a phone interview but I felt the emails were full with errors so not very professional. They made the job more about sales then meeting people and recruiting.

    Human Resources Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Birmingham, England (UK)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Robert Half (Birmingham, England (UK)).

    Interview

    The interview process was very professional and consisted of biographical and competency based questions. There was an initial face to face interview with the consultant and then three further interviews.

    The format of the interviews was friendly, professional and conversational. It did not feel as though questions were being fired from a list. It felt as though they genuinely wanted to establish the facts about what I had done and how it fitted the role. The Company was very honest about its culture, values and the challenges in the role. I was very impressed by their approach.

    The consultant who dealt with me was excellent and kept me fully informed all the way through the process.
