    I worked at Major Players full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Specialist consultants who genuinely care about their clients, their candidates, their colleagues and the wider business.
    Top notch marketing and social media offering.
    Investment in the people working for them is 2nd to none.
    Superb social scene with amazing bar, great events and many a fun night!
    Healthy commission with the ability to hit the heights for those who drive to excel.
    The leadership team respond to suggestions and feedback, and whilst maintaining a consistent drive for excellence are flexible enough to try new things.

    Cons

    Ermm..... more Roxy Music on the radio??
    Maybe more industry experts to come in and speak to teams about their disciplines - upskilling by those in the industry, which won't feel like classroom learning.
    Genuinely struggling to think of any, as very little room for improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going, keep doing what you're doing, keep hiring people who will make a difference and do all you can to retain those who don't just work hard but add something a little special to the place. And keep that bar nicely stocked ;-)

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Major Players (London, England (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Informal yet detailed. They want to get to know you before your creds, you can teach recruitment, you can't teach work ethic. Got a good idea of the culture very quickly, and they weren't trying to oversell the role like many other agencies. Honesty builds integrity.

    Interview Questions

    • Can't single out a particular question, it was centered around getting an understanding about the person behind the CV. Started with the usual CV run through, then about my background. Very relaxed and more of a chat.   Answer Question
