    Easy Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Hays (United Kingdom)


    Overall as the process went on I was less and less interested in the role and the company. The process ended up seeming repetitive and was slightly off-putting to the point I wasn’t sure I would take a role if offered it.

    Where would you find candidates?
