I worked at Progressive Recruitment full-time
Quick to find you if they need CV's.
Poor communications. Callback requests are almost never followed-up, usual reason being "the requested person is in a meeting". This is definitely not the most professional recruiting agency. This agency behaves like an old-fashioned "CV shuffler".
Advice to Management
Clean up your act and start behaving professionally and start adding value to your customers.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Progressive Recruitment (Manchester, England (UK)) in October 2016.
There were 3 stages, I only reached the second.
The first stage was an easy simple telephone interview call which lasted no longer than 20 minutes. It was pretty much a simple screening call for them and yourself, allowing both to see if there was any compatibility.
The second stage was an F2F and much more competency based.
I assume the third stage would be something similar to Computer Futures which involved getting on the phones and calling candidates. Your ability to hold a conversation and generate leads would be monitored. You will also have to give a 10-15 minute presentation and follow up with some extra interview questions.
