I have been working at Maxxima full-time (More than a year)
- Great first job out of University - Hard-working but relaxed atmosphere - Lots of social events; opportunities for gigs, football, pub sessions - Realistic targets set by management - Good, fun, like-minded colleagues
- Initial training can be unstructured- "learn as you go" type of role - Moving up to a sales desk not always immediate - Building an initial network of clients and candidates can be quite mind-numbing at first - Easy to get despondent in low periods, but that's the industry - Compliance can be frustrating; constantly changing team can create confusion
Advice to Management
Keep up the good work, get a bigger meeting room, continue to grow in our field!
I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Maxxima (Shoreditch, England (UK)) in May 2015.
I took a unique route into the company. Working in the office on an unrelated temporary admin assignment, I was given the opportunity to interview for a permanent compliance position, unlike the majority of employees who are expected to progress from compliance to becoming a consultant. Having previously been observed within the office, I was given a less formal interview with the compliance manager, followed by another informal interview with the managing director and a senior consultant, then a maths test.
