    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Hays plc (Boston, MA) in December 2016.


    3 phase role-playing interview: 1. sell yourself; 2. sell the candidate; 3. sell Hays. You are basically role-playing a recruiter and you get to experience what it feels like to be a recruiter.
