    I worked at Graduate Fasttrack full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    WeWork offices are always pleasent to be in

    Cons

    - Simply trying to impress clients with the amount of people that they can get in the room, where some of them haven't even attended univeristy - Decision is being made within the first few minutes, but cinstinue wasting everyones time by playing awkward games like 'sell me this pen' and 'tell me a funny fact' - No tack when sending unsuccessfull applicants home, making it extremely awkward for the whole group. - Poor communication via email - Disregard to applicant requirements, inviting everyones for the same telesale roles - Only telesales roles, therefore if you are not interested in cold-calling - probably they would not be able to help

    I worked at Graduate Fasttrack

    Pros

    Great contact via email and phone initially. No more pro’s but have to reach the 20 word minimum word count.

    Cons

    Literally invite you to assessment days purely for numbers. Give you a lot of false promises and hope. Promise you jobs over the phone and make you feel worthless during the assessment day. Was told to not prepare for the “meeting” only to be sent an email hours before the “meeting” being told it’s an assessment day and to bring this, that and the other. They also make cuts without grace or politeness. Don’t get to meet with who you initially were communicating with. Very harsh. Scroll down to where someone else said “made to feel worthless” because that’s exactly what that process was.

    I have been working at Graduate Fasttrack full-time

    Pros

    The culture at GFT is the one of the best parts of this role, great people with many social events happening throughout the year. Great progression opportunities with promotions being entirely based on hitting targets set by management. The service we provide for clients is the best i have come across (having come through many recruitment agencies the GFT experience was the best by far, hence why i wanted to work here). Genuinely work with some great companies that offer genuine careers and not just jobs for graduates. A really friendly office environment which is not always the case in Recruitment.

    Cons

    There is never a perfect place to work so here are some drawbacks. Since starting here there have been many changes which has caused slight confusion of how everything works within the company (although the way we do business with our clients has remained the same). The office is nothing to shout about. Of course long hours but this is generally the case in recruitment.

    Pros

    Jack absolute legend. Signed up, went in to meet him next day, 2 days later had a job. Great stuff

    Cons

    No cons. Hammersmith can be a trek depending on where you’re coming from.

    June 1, 2018Group Operations Director

    We're sorry that you had a bad experience. We don't really target people at all in the business and therefore find it odd to have unrealistic targets given to you. We support all employees and have had great success with training all of our staff. If you could email info@graduate-fasttrack.co.uk with further feedback, we would be grateful.
